When I look at the display on Android devices where the OS is newer than Gingerbread, my eyes start hurting from the strain. For example, I tried updating my Tmobile G2's ROM from Gingerbread to ICS , then to Jellybean and after hours of tinkering with the display settings my eyes were still hurting. When I gave up and went back to Gingerbread, then my eyes were fine looking at the screen.

My question is: what exactly changed in the display settings in the newer version of the Android oS? Also How can I use an OS like Jellybean or ICS, but make the screen display with the brightness that was available via Gingerbread? :-[

Much thanks for the help
P.S. I did try the ADW Gignerbread theme, but that mainly changes the look and feel of the icons, not the display

Welcome to the forums!
Unless there was a change in the refresh rate of the screen embedded in the OS, I can't think of anything you can try. Sorry.
