Is this normal
Take your time and look/search through the Forum there are weeks of reading and modding you can do to the Pearl, if she truly is the one this time.
But yeah, once you have an ALX file on your desktop or designated folder, you open DM and tell it to add programs. While in DM, you then search or point DM to the alx file and it will then install the file when you say "next" or whatever the command button is.
As to the backlight, look that up in the threads. Subject has been discussed since Sept 2006. Later operating systems fixed the issue, but took away the ability to turn the feature on and off. But then even later operating systems put the feature back in.
I have never wanted to lose the ability to turn auto-backlight off so I am running the original .42 T-Mo OS. But read the threads and you can find the latest on the issue.
