I see it has already been solved in the thread, but just wanted to chime
in that the problem is that the module parameter moved to a new module,
hence some tools are now unable to change it because they expect it in
the "usb_hid" and not in the "hid" module.

As for KBDMode = fkeysfirst that means that F1 is a real F1 and fn-F1 is
brightness down, however, as I said above maybe pbbuttonsd is no longer
able to control it now that the parameter changed to a new module.

As for Bin's ADB keyboard I don't know if there's a parameter at all,
but I can't imagine it changing, pbbuttonsd sets that afaik.
