    Yes, I tried to update a app which was about 200meg, I only have a slow Internet, so when it auto locks it stops updating.

    Yes u can, I just downloaded 7gbs worth of games from AppStore running in background, it's a glitch, if u go to your purchases under "Updates", when you hit the cloud button beside app, it'll try putting u into description u can actually hit back and go select more apps while the one u already chose is downloading in background, u won't see the icon of the app until it finishes downloading, it's really cool !

    If u just don't want ur phone to sleep during download go into cydia and get the tweak sleep depriver if u don't have activator installed ur gonna need that also to pick a gesture, I have mine set to a short hold of the power bottom and u will c "zzzz" in ur status bar then download ur apps and it will stay awake til u turn it off, make sure u turn it off when ur done ul kill ur battery. Its also good for reading n things like that, but if u do have a bug and that doesn't help let me know.
