Blackberry Backlight Utility

I often have problems keeping my back light on when I’m waiting for an email to arrive or when I’m reading an e-book. I know I can always jog the wheel up and down but its just a pain to do it when you just want focus your attention on something important.

Here is a simple utility that keeps your backlight on until you want to turn it off.


* Rearrange for sourceforge distribution V1.81 Beta
* Total redesign to accommodate new features:
– Turn light on with User Activity
– Turn light on when device is removed from holster
– Turn light on when external power is applied
– Turn light on at a specific time of day for a certain duration
* Fix bug in APIs with DateField constructor.

    Works OK with 7250.However, even with external power it does not _keep_ the light on. Am I missing something?

    Please excuse me if this is a duplicate. I am reposting as I had not completed verification and would like a follow up email if I get a response.Works OK on 7250. However, the light does not _stay_ on, even when connected to external power. Am I missing something?

    For those of you who are ADD when trying to fix this problem, when you put the battery back in, do NOT touch the power button. It will turn on by itself. Took me a day to figure that ‘gem’ out.

    Try the screenlight app you can toggle the backlight on/off. Looks like its compatible with all phone models too.
