Additional Info

The display brightness can be set by writing a value between 0 and 255 to /sys/devices/platform/hisi_fb.1048577/leds/lcd_backlight0/brightness.

Initially it contains the value 102, but the display is dark. Sending a value one time seems to wake up the display.

$ sudo -i
# echo 255 > /sys/devices/platform/hisi_fb.1048577/leds/lcd_backlight0/brightness
