Is there any way to turn off the backlights behind the capacitive buttons?

Would probably require some framework modding. That's the way the lights are adjusted on the Vivacity so it wouldn't surprise me.

Aren't the light controlled by the light sensor? So they only really come on if you're in a dark enough place, in daylight I'm sure they don't show cos they're not needed.

Yeah, correct...see me and fr0do here, in the TMV F& C thread....here

I flashed a framework from fibblesans earlier ROM, but it phucked up some Notification and other Icon stuff, but, it solved the back-light problem...

perhaps it could be looked at by someone who knows more than me!!!!

it would really help, as I have said before, my wife has a sight disability, and the lack of back-lit Android buttons most of the time is really quite a drawback, to this otherwise nearly perfect ROM

There is a mod worth trying on xda witch forces leds to stay on when screen is on. I will link it later when I'm home.

Put's a widget on the home screen allows you to turn on/off widget "bulb" but Capacitive Android Lights/Buttons don't change....

App description says Samsung Galaxy line of phones......

This is a simple little app for the Samsung Galaxy line of phones. It will not work for the Galaxy Tablet, as this is very hardware specific. E-mail me if it doesn't work for your Galaxy S phone, I'd like to make it work for everyone. REQUIRES root access.

I rebooted also after install...but no dice...no back-lights, stay stubbornly off.....

but that framework flash from fr0do did work earlier, except for all the changes it did to icons, etc.....

the light sensor was much more responsive to lower ambient light....

not just complete darkness, or covering the sensor with your hand.....

if only that could be incorporated into this ROM, without breaking the theme....

There's a setting page in Cyanogen Mod 7 to turn the button lights off and on at set brightness levels, including always off or always on. So it is possible.

I always found those lights behind the physical buttons a complete waste too.
