    So I just overclocked my droid using Taz's Kernel. I applied the wifi fix and everything is working great except that now my screen never dims. It stays at full brightness all of the time. I tried searching for a solution but didnt see anything. Does anyone have any idea on how I can fix this?


    Thanks in advance

    Have you tried adding the power bar widget to your home screen and see what that does?

    I have the toggle settings ap and it shows that my screen is set at the lowest brightness level but just to check I tries using the slider to make the screen brighter and that didint work. I also went into the settings on my phone and tried to adjut the brightness and that didnt work either. I did try adding the power bar widget and nothing!


    Thanks for the help though

    Most times this works. Go into settings: sounds and display: and toggle the auto brightness on and off. If that doesn't work it could be the kernel, I'm not familiar with Taz's kernels.

    If you're on an old version of 2.1, I'm assuming ported from the N1 I would flash a new ROM. Either Bugless Beast or Simply Stunning, as both of these are based off the 2.1 made for the Droid. That will fix your autobrightness for sure.
