    I have some questions about the Root Tools application by jrummy16 and backups while using the app. I have emailed the developer a day or two ago some questions regarding his app, but have not received a response; so I decided to post my questions here and perhaps someone can help.

    I purchased Root Tools a few days ago. So far, I have only tried out "Max Events" and "Button Lights".

    In regards to button lights, I wanted to turn off hard key lights while the screen is on, so I clicked that option. There was a small box that appeared briefly on the bottom of the screen with a "1" in it. When it prompted me to reboot, I did so. However, after doing so, the hard key lights still came on when the screen was on. I tried again, but it still did not work. Is this feature not compatible with the Droid X? Is there something that I am not doing right?

    I did not make a backup prior to applying the 2 settings in Root Tools. However, I did make a backup about a week ago after I rooted my phone. Should I have made another backup before changing the settings using Root Tools? In Max Events, I had set the max events per second to "60". I believe the current max events before changing it was 50. Now, if I were to uninstall Root Tools, would that particular setting be still applied? Will it harm my phone if I remove the app with that setting still applied? If I wanted to remove the app, should I change the max events per second to the original "50" before doing so?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Change the pop up "1" to a "0."

    It would still be 60.

    Oh, I misread - sorry. Try the opposite setting, like "Always on." I don't have Root Tools, so I can't work this out, but do that then reboot. When it comes back, try the one you want and reboot. It may fix it.

    I tried the opposite setting; it did not fix it. It still did not work. After that, I had tried applying the "back lights off" setting again; it did not work.

    Is anyone with jrummy16's Root Tools application on their Droid X experiencing this issue?

    Edit: Is there another root app or method that can perform this particular feature?

    Edit 2: Nevermind. I have found an app that turns off the hardware back lights.
