stephenj backlight hotfix not working (page: 1 2) 23 Apr 2 2009, 7:28 AM EDT by rcartwright6
Thread started: Nov 19 2008, 8:23 PM EST  Watch
I have tried several times and from different computers to copy the backlight hotfix to my tilt and install it. It runs on the tilt and says it installed correctly but after the Tilt goes to sleep, the backlight time out is back to 10 seconds.
Any ideas as to how to get this hotfix to work on my tilt?

I will repeat what i have said on prior posts on AT&T boards
please call htc and att if you have or are experiencing the freezing, sleep hibernate issue with the tilt... I had a total of 3 all from different cities and different batches, both my 2nd and 3rd never had a single other thing including email, or contacts or certainly any software added and i never even made a call and they too had the issue...I never customized the phones either so. we need them to find the cause and a solution you can't have a phone that will not receive your calls and email and text messages because it is in deep sleep and that you constatly have to reset to use.... I am not rebuying until i know for sure it is fixed for good. I hope others do the same or you may be stuck with a defective device or forced to return it for service once you exceed your 30 day return guarantee. Att will not extend it even with the current problems and I for one do not appreciate paying $400 for a defective device.
