Mod to Lower Button Lights to Control Light Leak
When the HTC Amaze 4G was first released, there was much furor over its light leak issue. For those who don’t now what light leak is, it’s when the lights from the touch buttons leak onto the actual screen of a device. While it isn’t harmful to the device and doesn’t cause any decrease in functionality, it is incredibly annoying.
XDA Senior Member jul644 has posted a modification that will turn down the intensity of the touch buttons so the light doesn’t leak onto the touch screen. This not only fixes the problem, but it might even save you a few minutes of battery life.
The modification requires some knowledge of .apk compiling and decompiling, apk and xml editing, and some elementary usage of ADB, so for those who aren’t as tech savvy, you might need to do some homework before attempting. This could be very useful for developers to add to their ROM or for people who are brave enough to attempt. As usual, be sure to create a backup for any apk you intend to modify, just in case something goes wrong.
For those who are willing to attempt, or for developers who want to add to their ROMs, you can find the full modifications and prerequisites in the original thread.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
