View Full Version : It burns!

This has been in my head for a long, long time... But only recently has this issue been bugging me.

Sometimes I fall asleep while listening to music on my iPod. And if I want to change tracks or something (At night) that backlight is_so_unnecessarily_BRIGHT! It burns :eek:... I mean, I really don't need it to be that bright as long as I can see whats on the screen...

So my question being is, has there been a hack that will dim the iPod's backlight? I can dim the iPod's backlight if I go to diagnostic mode, so I know the iPod's hardware is physically capable of doing so, I just want it to stay that way.

It might also help save battery a bit :)

My iPod: 40GB 4G B/W
BTW - I wouldn't mind hacking it/erasing it in the process if needed (I keep all my music backed up, and have firewire)

I know my iPod is out of date, but I guess its worth posting to see if anyone around here knows :o

you could just squint or put on some sunglasses when the backlight comes on...:cool: ;)

A Shuffle would never do that.
