Teaming up sounds like an idea. I've been watching various forum threads about this. On the Ubuntu and Sony ClubVaio forums there is one guy named 'benste'. He seems to be a moderator on the official Sony ClubVaio forums. Maybe he can contact Sony for us.
Someone also noted that there is a Windows XP driver available for Sony Vaio's with working backlight. Maybe we could ask the guys who did this if they know anything. Also, extracting the register key with nvClock doesn't work on Vista, it does however work on WinXP. If we use the Windows XP driver, could we then figure something out with nvClock?
