    I had hoped the upgrade to Gingerbread would fix this. Alas, tis not to be. It's early morning and neither my four touch buttons nor my keyboard will light, even if I turn the display off and back on. There should be a way to force them to stay lit.

    You had hoped Gingerbread had fixed this? It worked fine before Gingerbread. Gingerbread broke it.

    It didn't work fine for me in Froyo either.

    Try AdjBrightness from the Market. It can lock the backlights on and turn them off.

    I've been using AdjBrightness and it seems to work. However, it seems like the settings don't stick. I go into the app and set the brightness of the screen and set the LED buttons to stay lit and exit. They stay lit while the screen is on, but if I shut the screen off and then turn it back on, the LED buttons don't come back on with the screen. I end up having to re-enter the app and do my settings again.

    How do I set things in that app so they will stay set, even if I were to reboot the phone?

    Thank you.

    Did you hit the "Lock Bright," button?

    I'm at a loss here for now... Let me look into it. We may have to make a build.prop adjustment.

    Unless I'm doing something incorrectly in the app. Either way, at least I have a way to use the LEDs when it's dark now.

    The back light may have failed. Is there any point at which it lights up?
