Hey everyone, nexus was going good with no problems and I swapped batteries and bam! Screen is too damn dim, unusable outside even in shade and I can barely manage inside my house. I've tried adusting brightness slider,rebooting, swapping batteries to no avail. I recently switched to aokp milestone 5 but that was days ago. Hopefully this screenshot does it justice in showing you how dim it is. Trust me its dim.

I am not very experienced in rooting/roms but my only suggestion would be to re-flash milestone 5 or try a different one.

It looks fine in the pictures to me but I had a similar problem yesterday. This may not be the same issue you are having.

My battery died while I was driving so I charged it a while when I got home. When I powered it up, the Google logo and boot screen were at normal brightness but as soon as the lock screen loaded, it would go super dark, almost like the backlight was out. Managed to get to the brightness setting but it was still really dark. Turned out to be a setting for color multipliers in the Franco Kernel Updater app that I use. All of the sliders under this setting were maxed out. Changing each of them back to the defaults listed in the app fixed the problem. Not sure why the settings changed themselves though.

As I said, this may not be the same issue since I'm running Gummy and using the Franco app. If you aren't, you may want to look around in whatever you use for your kernel settings.
