Turn off backlight on home/menu/back/search capacitive buttons on Android phones


It seems that there would be some way to turn these backlights off or at least toggle the brightness in the settings menu. They are blindingly bright in a dark room.

Luckily for us, the LEDs Hack app will allow you to turn these off. This app can be found in the market.

Note: Your phone MUST be rooted.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, every time your phone reboots, these boxes will all be unchecked, so you’ll have to do it again to turn them back off.  Hopefully there will be a native way to change these settings in the future.
