    You should try again and remember install gapps after.
    Installed CM9 3 days ago, worked good but anyway it killed battery faster.

    I can confirm on a fresh install that both softkey and keyboard backlights stay on as long as Automatic Brightness is enabled. However, I can also confirm that the Automatic brightness feature does not work on my phone with the default settings, which means that I can't have it on...which means that my keyboard and softkey lights do not work. Turning on Auto Brightness and then turning it off does not keep the lights on (though the softkeys stay illuminated...the keyboard shuts back off).

    So the real problem becomes making Auto Brightness work. The only setting I changed to do that was Menu>System Settings>Display>Automatic backlight>Allow light decrease (off by default, I set it to on).

    Now my screen dims and brightens properly, so I can keep Automatic Brightness on and therefore have my keyboard and softkey lights working. That certainly does nothing to solve the underlying problem, but hopefully it helps someone else to work around the issue!

    Thanks to everyone who has worked on this ROM...it is really fantastic to have breathed new life into the Droid 2 with CM9.


    UPDATE: I noticed after this post that when I put my phone into the car dock, the backlights all shut off. This makes navigation at night very difficult since you cannot see any of the softkeys or keyboard keys. I am now using a market app called "Keyboard Backlight Controller" to force the softkey backlights to stay on...not the most elegant solution, but it works.

    Updated op with new build. Not much in the way of changes from the 8/9 build over on Rootz. All stuff from CM, mostly translations and minor bug fixes.

    I want to try the room. I'm from Colombia. Great job, but I want to know if I can install this room having the Android 2.2 froyo on my D2G, and if not, what version of Android I have to be? Thank you so much.

    By the way, I am running on Venus D2G RC5, Kernel version 2.6.32.9, baseband N_01.48.05R
    According to the GSM unlock post, baseband radio should be intact in order to let the GSM patch work.
    I dont know if I can flash this rom.

    On the new version (8/19) picture messaging stopped working. I couldn't receive or send any pictures. Is there some way to fix it in the settings?
    Also, is there a way to make messages over 160 characters not split up?
    Thanks to the people who built this rom. Love the look and feel! Wish battery life was a little better, but what can you do? :)

    The message splitting is due to MMS settings, but even tweaking it I still haven't gotten it to act like normal messaging.

    The picture messaging issue I'm guessing is localized to the D2G builds so I can't help you there.
