    Default iPhone backlight keeps going out!

    It's happened twice - the light goes off - I can make out the objects on the screen and they respond to the touch, but there is no light.
    When I go to Settings, Brightness - the sliders are both disabled and do not respond to the touch at all which makes you wonder, as touch seems to work with other applications. I think that it has just happened since the 2.2 update
    I've got a jailbroken phone. Don't remember what I was using the first time it happened. The second time, the light went out after using Cydia's Flashlight app.
    When I restore, the light comes back on again. I don't want to be stuck at night with no light on the phone and it's a PITB to have to restore when it happens. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Any info appreciated...

    I've had the same problem. I think it's something related to Cydia's Flashlight app as well.

    Let me know if you find any fixes. I will do the same.

    When things like this happened to me, I restored to stock. I can't stand the instability that so many of the apps on Cydia/Installer had. They made my iPhone 3G laggy and intolerable. Soooo glad I restored to stock.
