first excuse my english ;-) is there any tool, hack, app, e.g. how to set the time to turn off or dim the backlight. i mean the brightness. i want to set auto-lock to never, but i want that the backlight turns off after a while. the optimum would be if the brightness fades to 5% or so. would be so great if someone could give me an answer. thanx in advance!

Can someone clarify the 'extended preferences' please? Is this a setting wtihin the phone (if so, where) or an app.

Thanks, any way to do this on a non-jailbroken phone?

Is there a way to do this through modding a plist file or something? Like if you don't want to install extended prefs?

replace 30 with the number of seconds before the screen dims. -1 means never.
Then turn the phone off and on again (restarting SpringBoard doesn't work).
EDIT: If I'm not mistaken, this might work on a non-jailbroken iPhone, too. Using iPhonebrowser on a Windows computer, you could get access to the file (it would be at Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist).
Alternatively, install Erica Utilities (from Cydia) and in a terminal issue the command
sb -i 30 SBAutoDimTime
