BacklightNotification for Samsung i9000 on Eclair
For those of you wanting backlight notification for incoming notifications on your Samsung Galaxy S i9000, you’ve now got it courtesy of XDA forum member neldar.
The mod replaces the old kernel with a modified kernel that includes a backlight patch and some additional modules for lagfix and VPN support.
