    keyboard backlight problem - (simpler) fix and some thoughts

    I think I have a more simple fix for the keyboard backlight issue than completely reflashing the ROM.

    I too was having the keyboard backlight issue after installing the 1125G ROM from stock Gingerbread... but by the time I noticed, I had pretty much gotten my phone to where I wanted it. Total bummer. I tried the app that forces the keyboard on always, no dice... I tried the toggle with auto-backlight trick in the settings, it would bring the keyboard on, but not automatically. All I could do was trigger it for that instance. The second I turned my screen off and back on again, no keyboard backlight. I also noticed that auto-brightness was both not impacting the actual brightness, it would stay at whatever the last manual setting was, and that the keyboard was also being controlled by the same backlight setting. So for a while, it was triggering but was at such a dim level on the backlight, it did not even appear as if the keyboard was illuminated.

    I didn't want to reflash... what if I bricked it again and had to cycle through all the previous stock .sbfs? So much time, so much hassle... So after exhausting all the settings on that install, I decided I was determined to get the keyboard backlight working even if it meant .sbfing the whole gambit, but wanted to experiment before I claimed defeat and reflashed 1125G. So I rebooted into recovery and did wipe data/factory reset as well as wipe cache partition... rebooted the phone and it worked!

    So, I still have to reinstall everything, but Titanium will make that easy. Needless to say, one less step to fix the keyboard issue. Not entirely sure what did it, but I'd maybe suggest as a best practice for first time installs to 1125G that after the initial flash is successful, reboot into recovery and do one more wipe before setting up the phone.

    Anyway Calvin, been enjoying your ROM for a while and still do. It's small but happy I was able to contribute a lil bit. If anyone else tries this and it works, please say so in order for others to enjoy. And thank you to the community of dedicated Droid Pro users, you guys rock.

    :)

    Hi, I had the same problem: backlight and keyboard backlight not working, but after I reflashed the 1125g again I just reinstalled my applications with Titanium backup but I did not restore any app data + cm settings via Titanium (as per suggestion in this thread). And up until now my backlight is still working :)

    Someone suggested that I verified if my backlight was working after a fresh reinstall/reflash, and it did.

    What I did:
    1. wipe system, data, cache, dalvik cache;
    2. reflash 1125G + google apps;
    3. booted into CM7 and verified that my backlight was working;
    4. rebooted once more to test my backlight --> still working;
    5. signed into my accounts;
    6. gradually installed applications (only app not the app data) via Titanium Backup --> to test which application would cause this

    So as I said, my backlight (normal + keyboard) is still working.

    After you restore everyhting (application + application data & settings) via Titanium could you post a follow-up?
    Someone suggested that restoring any settings/data via Titanium via could be the culprit.

    But it just could be of course that after a reflash, we just need to wipe data and perform a factory reset.

    So which hack are you talking about, could you give me a link to the hack?

    Furthermore if you turn on Wifi, can you still change your settings, for instance if you turn on Wifi could change your date/time settings between 12h and 24h mode?

    I found out that if my Wifi works, that while Wifi was on I could change the settings, but they would not be saved. After turning off Wifi I had to turn on Data for brief moment and that fixed everything. So according to me it seems that Wifi makes some files/folders read-only and Data makes the same files/folders writeable again.

    Howdy folks, long time, no talk

    I've been busy with porting ICS to the Kindle Fire and finals with school but on this fine weekend I decided to work on CM9 for the Droid Pro like old times :-D

    It's very buggy (a lot of force closes) but it's also pretty fast and smooth. So far, the radio works, wifi works, the camera doesn't, bluetooth should and other things work that I cannot remember anymore

    The only downside is that the screen is stuck in landscape so you have to hold it sideways to do anything which makes typing very difficult as it's sideways at all times. I've attached some screenshots of what it's gonna look like :) as you can see, it's stuck in landscape for now, but it'll be fixed shortly and there will be a super alpha in the upcoming weeks

    Great, seems like we face the same roadblock here Jackpot.

    I have successfully built a ROM with almost everything working, except for Camera (certainly and the keypad making the phone assume that it should be on landscape). I used KANG's as the base so I guess it inherited that from some setting on the DROID 1/2/3 line that assumes you have the keypad open horizontally when you have the keypad popped out which is always the case for us.

    Also the 'b' key for some reason is not working, which, irritates the hell out of me.

    I don't want to hijack Jackpot's thread so anyone who thinks thay they can deal with the problem is welcome to try my ROM on the other thread.

    EDIT: After flashing for the 3rd time, backlight seems to be fixed.

    I did follow the guideline of only restoring the apps (and data) to non system components. This did not seem to impact the backlight, though did make sure I tested the backlight working both before and after restoring with Titanium. It's possible that some system setting would have been impacted by a full Titanium restore. But as a rule of thumb, I generally restore my individual apps w/ data but let system apps run fresh and know which ones I want to change well enough I'm willing to spend a few extra minutes to make the setting modifications I like.
