This is now included in my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Galaxy Nexus - details.

Here's something i'm testing on my GN that I thought i'd share. I personally find the auto backlight levels a bit low, so i've tweaked them a bit. This is very much in TEST phase, let me know how you find it and if it improves things for you. This is for expert users only at this stage, install via ClockworkMod recovery.

This is tested on devices running the ITL41D / ITL41F ROMs.

Update: There is now 2 different files with 2 steps of brightness increase!

Definately an improvement, only small observation i have is that when you wake the device its still very dark and requires some time to adjust

I think there might be something wrong with the filesonic link. Tried it several times now and after waiting to start the download, it just says "file not found".

Other filesonic downloads have worked great so far!

Thanks for the great work! :)

Still no go for me. But I end up at a Swedish server farm, http://u28.filesonic.se. I'm guessing file replication died somewhere on the way there :)

I'm on the custom Rom now tho so it's of no importance to me personally.

Paul, could you write a little tutorial how to tweak this at home? Your alterations are an improvement, but I personally would lighten up the values a lot more, but don't want to switch off auto-brightness. So I'd like to play around with the values myself, just need to know how.

TIA!

edit: As already said in the MCR thread, the fix seems to be missing from MCR r4.

Is one brighter than the other, or what is the difference?

Step 2 is brightest, step 1 is in between.

I get an installation aborted for this:

-- installing: /sdcard/dropbox/Public/r4-galaxynexus-autobacklightpatch-step1.zip
Finding update package...
I:Update location: /sdcard/dropbox/Public/r4-galaxynexus-autobacklightpatch-step1.zip
I: using /data/media, no /sdcard found.
Opening update package....
Installling update....
Installation aborted.


md5 sum is correct and matches that given above- is this an update zip error or a CWM error?

thanks
