    brightness hack

    I think I am running Sholes 2.0.6 ( I used the dmupdater )

    I was just wondering if there is anyway way to KEEP the brightness hack all the way down to that level, because whenever I have it running and lock my phone up and then come back to it, it is always back to default and not the brightness hack.

    Thanks in advance.

    Brightness hack? Try adding the power settings widget to the homescreen (the brightness is the one on the far right)

    I would think the power control widget could turn it down to the minimum you have it hacked to...

    The power widget has THREE settings. Very low, adjust using ambient light sensor, and high.

    Pretty sure the brightness is measured on some sort of scale. I forget exactly what it is, but lets just say like 1-10 for this explanation.

    By default, the settings only lets you choose within the range from 3-10. The low brightness hack lets you pull the slider all the way down to 1, for less brightness. However, the widget actually says "set the brightness to 3" at its low setting, not "set to the lowest point on the slider". So, there's no way of going down below 3 without going to the slider itself, that I'm aware of.

    Maybe someone could hack the widget and include it in the low brightness hack, so that low actually = 1? Or better yet, maybe someone could just make a widget that is the slider itself...

    yeah, but there is this app that turns it down REALLY low, even lower then 1, i was just wondering if you can have that on ALL the time because when that app is running, and you lock your phone it goes back to the normal 1
