    Button Lights

    Updated DX from froyo to gingerbread. Button lights have a mind of their own. On froyo they would go out, but sleeping the phone and waking it up would bring back the lights. On GB, when the lights go out, they stay out. Sleeping and then waking up doesn't restore the lights. Sometimes they come back on their own - who knows why!

    Anyone know how to force the button lights to come back on again without rebooting? Tried resetting or toggling display brightness, but that doesn't do it.

    Thanks.

    I don't want to root my phone - too many issues with that.

    I tried the light sensor thing - changed ambient lighting from bright to dim, etc. Didn't make any difference.

    Sound like we need an app that runs on unrooted phones that controls button lighting. I suspect other GB users will have the same problem and would like an app like that.

    On unrealated topic - upgrading from froyo to GB changes contacts features. With GB, contacts no longer supports addn'l contact info like birthdays and anniversaries. Other than that, GB WAY better than froyo.

    For an app to change button brightness, it needs to have root access so..
    Yeah, gb is night and day better than froyo

    Apk must have been taken down. I'll try to upload my file to dropbox and post a link. No promises though
