    In order to even begin the process of unlocking, you need to type in "recognizeme"? Instead of just a four digit passcode? And that is before the actual recognition begins to take place? Talk about taking a lot of time to unlock your phone...

    I got it this morning and trained it in medium lighting, but I'm getting the same thing: The lock screen shuts off while the app is "Verifying..."

    There was a tweak in Cydia that kept the lockscreen lit up for 20 seconds. I had it before i upgraded to 4.2.8, but I forgot the name of it.

    Well, I tried out "NoLock" by Gi-lo which works, but the problem is, If i get a notification or something the lockscreen turns on of course.... but then doesn't turn off :-/ so on a night out for exmaple where I don't hear it or feel it, I'll have a dead battery after an hour ... so that's no good!

    I wish I knew why David Ashman's "Dim Delay" doesn't work. I'm still on iOS 4.2.1 (iP4) for those curious

    Ready my above post my friend...

    just press one number on passcode then try the recognizeme and it will not shut the screen off...


    BTW, has anyone had the issue of not being able to create more than one set of faces?

    It's called ScreenDimmer. Also if you have iRealSMS, there is a lockscreen dim setting (default is 8 secs) so mess around with that if applicable. The only reason why the lockscreen goes black is because of some installed application altering the lockscreen dim settings.

    Okay. So you say the i4 processor is the culprit? Then why even release it for this phone. Wait till the i5 pops out. Another reason why this is way too expensive for it's gimmicky functions at this stage.
    There is no reason to not release it. If you can code it why not release it. some people will find it useful, others will not. Current hardware limits it's power but in future hardware it will zoom.

    For those of you with the dimming screen issue. It's likely another tweak you have installed. I have had RecognizeMe installed since alpha and have never had that issue. You need to make 3 SETS. one in poor, moderate and optimal lighting for best results. This isnt a perfect tweak yet, but it will get there.

    Totally agree man. Not to mention that the amount if work that developers put in can sometimes be substantial. They are not forcing you to buy so if you don't want to, don't.

    Ah the tweak I had was "20 Second Lock Screen". That came in very handy for LockInfo as well.

    Petrit_H: sorry, I didn't see your post. Reading is fundamental. LOL It worked!

    ... ideas? lol ... I checked BiteSMS but there's nothing there, Dim Delay (Even with the Force option on) has NO effect. Only other thing I can think is LockInfo (just this second seen an option within) although the developer may have made a bug there, as Dim Delay (same developer) has the FORCE option which apparently stops other apps tweaking the dim...all except LockInfo it may appear lol

    EDIT: LockInfo controlled the Dim for me! :-/ (it's better than entering 1 digit to force it)
