No problem. I just rebooted though and the change didn't persist. May need to make an init script to effect the changes on boot.
Alright, so here's what I've got... and I'm hitting a bit of a snag. Maybe someone can offer some insight.
In /system/etc/init.d/S99Button_Backlight_Disable (permissions 777) I have:
echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/button-backlight/max_brightness
chmod 755 /sys/class/leds/button-backlight/max_brightness
This doesn't work during boot like I would expect that it should.
However, running this file from script manager manually disables my button backlight. Would S99 not be the right runlevel to try running this at? I figured trying to run it last would be the best bet so that if something else was setting the max brightness beforehand, I could overwrite it.
Alright, So I figured it out... I didn't have init.d support enabled, usually I do. Apparently, it isn't enabled in the PACman Rom by default. The setup above works fine to persist the lights once init.d support is enabled. Most custom kernels/roms have this enabled already. *shrug* You can use an app like PimpMyRom to enable init.d or any of the other methods out there.
Either way, creating that file with those contents works.
