When open PiTool, the brightness always reset

The brightness always reset and left eye is 0 while the right eye is -5.

Not sure what is wrong.

Hello, same issue here, just got the 5K+ a few days ago so I downloaded and installed the latest Pitool.

I just reported this issue in another post, plus a few other settings like to change when loading Pitool.

It’s not available on the download page and as far as I know that “check update” feature newer worked… :crazy_face:



Yeah the last updates haven’t been added to the automatic update in PiTool (not sure why), so just grab the version from the link @DrWilken provided above and install it over your previous PiTool version.
