    So geek35 took the old lights.sholes.so.. basically u just replace this into /system/lib/hw and reboot. Works for me perfectly so far. I will provide the link in the next post.
    Download it, place it on ur sdcard, main folder(root) then go into terminal emulator and
    Enter:
    Su
    mount -o rw,remount /system
    cp /sdcard/lights.sholes.so /system/lib/hw
    chmod 644 /system/lib/hw/lights.sholes.so
    sync
    mount -o ro,remount /system

    If you can't unmount, just boot into recovery and unmount system. The file will be pushed anyways.

    i am getting cp - Command not found.

    When i type mount -o rw, remount /system underneath it says "Usage:Mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-t type] device directory"

    Is that correct?

    Oh, unless you have busybox installed you won't have "cp." You can use "cat" though.

    cat /sdcard/lights.sholes.so > /system/lib/hw/lights.sholes.so

    For the cp issue you either don't have busybox, or don't have all the symlinks for it. If you have busybox without symlinks do:
    Code:
    busybox cp /sdcard/lights.sholes.so /system/lib/hw
    Otherwise do:
    Code:
     
    dd if=/sdcard/lights.sholes.so of=/system/lib/hw/lights.sholes.so

    The light fix is intermittent because it works via the ambient light sensor. If you are in the dark it will light the keyboard.
