I have a 5.5G Video Ipod. Whenever I turn it on, the system works fine, but when the backlight turns off, it won't turn back on until I reset it.
I think this is being caused by the new hardware-based brightness control. I just updated my bootloader and to r15948 today.
This task depends upon

edit: I downgraded to a build from December 15th and the backlight works fine (on/off without reboot)

deleted the following settings from the config file and fixes it:

backlight on button hold: off
caption backlight: on
backlight fade out: 2
backlight timeout: 3

i.e. delete all settings relating to backlight seem to cure it.
