well since PR 1.3 brightness 2 is lowest, brightness 1 turns backlight off..

don't know why, before it was 0 for backlight off, and 1 was the lowest setting.

Well... that's that then

Frost,
Did you have the chance to test the patched module? Are the levels to your liking?
I know I have tested. No ill effects for now.
Do you think it's worth writing a script that would automatically edit the binary with some desired values?
Does anyone know how to make a temporary filesystem redirect (mount or symbolic link) so that it gets reset after a reboot? What I have in mind is something like:
- script get desired values from user
- script makes a copy of the current .so file and edits with given values
- script mounts new .so module under old name (effectively temporarily overwriting the old module)
- script kills mce in order for it to grab new values
- in case a crash occurs and phone reboots - it should pick up old, stable, module.
- if everything worked fine, user should re-run script with some option to make changes permanent (during which the script should still make a backup copy of the module, rename the new one and kill mce again).
I hope I'm not stealing the thread

Finally got around to install the other N900 with thumb14 and OC and such and now im using gebeleysis brightness fix and it works really really well, so i can really recommend it to other users, the levels are very good and you really wont see screen light change anymore so it is not ignoring at all

nman, sifo, dr_frost_dk: You're all welcome! I am glad to have done something useful. I still didn't create any automatic way to customize brightness. Shame on me for that!
Still, since a hex-change in built-in binaries should be a conscious one, maybe it's better this way.

well you decipher the code so it should be possible to make some sort of bash script where you input you values and it does the HEX, but for me the levels you made are very good and have a wide application for various situations so it should not be needed.
