I updated my Captivate Glide to the Androd 4.0 version via the official ATT/Samsung directions found here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/SupportOwnersFAQPopup.do?faq_id=FAQ00048593&fm_seq=53023
However, after I successfully updated my phone, I have noticed some weird bugs. First off (and the most major one), THE KEYBOARD DOESN'T LIGHT UP... That's a big bummer, does anyone know how to fix it? And also, the phone seems to lag at times when scrolling or just navigating web pages... That's just a minor issue though. But does anyone have a SOLUTION for the backligh on the keyboard not working? ATT/Samsung fix the problem please!!!!

Did you even read what I posted or did you just delete it because of the hyperlink? Here is a text version you CAN'T delete.
Evidence that factory reset won't help:
The thing that has nagged me, is that the backlight is correctly deactivated when the screen is locked/blanked. Anyways, I did a more thorough search for stmpe-bl in the original 2.3.6 and discovered /system/lib/hw/lights.n1.so. In the file (5k pretty small.) I found the following strings:
write_int failed to open %s
NVIDIA Ventana lights module
however, in my 4.0.4 version, I found:
write_int failed to open %s
SAMSUNG BOSE lights module
Notice in the newer version, the "keyboard" and sec_stmpe_bl entries are omitted. I wonder if using the 2.3.6 lights.n1.so on 4.0.4 would work?

No, it is not. There is a fix on XDA for rooted phones, but mines isn'r rooted, so I can't do it. And those who rooted and updated to 4.0 have alot more problems.

Yes-same problems here! My phone is crashing after a call--can't make or receive calls, and disconnects from my car's bluetooth, so can't make or receive calls wirelessly while driving, without fooling with the actual phone. No keyboard backlight as well. Please, someone, assure me that they are taking care of this problem--the crashing phone is a REAL problem!!!! I am regretting I made this upgrade!

Just spent the afternoon redoing my phone after a factory reset. The phone crash problem is gone. Seems to be running a bit smoother, but keyboard backlight still does not work. Researching the problem now....we'll see if there's a fix somewhere...
