----> Notice <----
I'd like to compile a list of what we believe to be the most important hints, for inclusion into the top-most post.
If you could please just post them here (again)....it'll help some. Try to keep them very brief, along with links if possible. We don't want to repeat this thread in the top post, but a lot of stuff really belongs in one place for us to point newbies to.
It certainly won't hurt to have this stuff repeated here at the end anyway, so this won't be a futile exercise in exploding the size of the thread.
For example: The post above would be very good slightly modified....Note---someone rephrase this please: Turning off the light sensor in the Eco settings will keep the display from appearing too dim, and maintain a steady brightness regardless of ambient room light. You get to it from HomeButton->Settings->Eco->LightSensor (note: this is not accurate, it's just off the top of my head as an example.)
I may decide to put this as a 2nd non-editable page in the settings files, but I believe that to not be a good idea currently. Possibly a document. But it'll be in under a "click to expand" link in the first post.
