Hey all! A friend of mine asked me to modify the minimum backlight level on his YP-R1 player. Samsung's original firmware's minimum level is 8, while the hardware can go as low as 1. So I decided to try and after some digging I have been able to modify the original backlight tables.
I *only* touched the first level, the rest is kept original.


This is very simple.
You NEED firmware 4.0 (the modified one). You CAN'T modify the stock one.
1) First enter "safe mode" (see the guide in the first post).
2) Then, on you computer, open the drive labeled "NEO-GHOST", aka the smallest ~60 megs, and create the folder "Lib" if it doesn't exists (case sensitive!!).
3) Extract the archive in attachment were you wish.
4) Now simply copy the file "" that you have previously extracted, as it is, safely disconnect the player, turn it on and see the difference!

Any suggestion, feedback or thanks are welcome!
