    Question Is there a way to shorten the lockscreen timeout when i receive text?
    So everytime i receive a text msg my phone's lockscreen would stay lit for 1 mins as set by the settings for auto timeout, I'm wondering if theres a jailbreak tweak that'll allow me to shorten the time to save battery? I have an iPhone 4s and the battery drains like crazy.

    Thanks =]

    There is an easy solution for your difficulty. Just have 'Auto-Lock' set to 'Never', so the Lockscreen does not appear.

    That isn't what he means, he is asking when you press the home button and it lights up it's at the lockscreen which stays on it for about 20 seconds I'd say, then it goes back to black.

    I haven't heard of any tweak in Cydia that extends that time, sorry.

    Two things:

    1. We do not know if this person is a male.
    2. This person clearly asked for a reduction in Lockscreen time, not an extension.

    Whatever, doesn't matter to me if he is male or female lol.

    I am pretty sure that an iPhone's lockscreen doesn't stay lit for 1 minute.

    I'm sure you are correct as well. I just checked, it's around ten seconds. Maybe angelshinn is exaggerating, or having a software problem.
