    Any chance we can get an update that will allow us the option to control the keyboard back lighting? The fact that it turns on and off whenever the senor thinks it should is my major complaint with the phone. I would like to be able to make it stay on when in use. I realize this would drain the battery faster and am willing to do it. Perhaps there could be a disclaimer that popped up when you wanted to keep the light on stating that battery use will diminish with keyboard always on.

    Seems this update has blocked previous root exploits. Not good!

    The keyboard backlight is controlled by the screen timeout so if you set the screen timeout to never timeout, your keyboard backlight should never time out until you turn the screen off yourself via the power button. That can be affected by things like in-pocket detection which locks your phone and turns off the screen automatically so if you have that checked I would uncheck it.

    Did the update do anything to the touchscreen sensitivity? Ever since the update I have been having issues with the phone going back to the home screen when typing. It is quite annoying to say the least. I dont even have to touch the screen anymore for apps to open, merely hold my finger close to the screen.

    Ok regarding the keyboard backlight, I should have been more specific. No matter how long I adjust the screen timeout, the keyboard backlight will turn off whenever it thinks that I have enough light in the room and I shouldn't need it. The phone is often wrong. It is not really light enough in the room and I want to be able to keep the backlight on.

    In pocket detection is not on.

    Backlighting on the keyboard has to do with the light sensor, which will also dim your screen as needed when the screen brightness is set to "automatic." Do you have that set and if not can you try removing it and seeing how it goes. If that doesn't help, can you document inconsistencies some for me where the keyboard may light up and then not light up under similar/same conditions?

    Setting it to automatic only served to make the screen useless outdoors as it was always too dim. Maybe I have a defective phone. No matter what I do the keyboard goes dark unless I am in a very well lit area. I still don't see why Motorola would not give me the option to adjust this. Heck my Palm Pre let me.

    The OP said that the DC issues had been fixed, but nobody else has confirmed or disputed this statement.

    I was thinking about trying the admiral but only once the DC issue has been resolved for sure.

    Any input?

    I did that update, and can no longer DC at all. before, if I'd pop the battery out, the Dc would come on, but not anymore. I am not happy about this. Any suggestions?
