    Hi, I'm looking for a way to keep my iphone awake while I listen to music on the ipod. I have auto-lock set and a password so everytime it goes to sleep I have to input my password just to change song/artist. I know that if you double click you get the little ipod control box but its limited functions don't let you change to a different artist/album etc. For security reasons I don't want to turn off the password or auto-lock so is their a cydia app or trick to override the lock/password for when I'm listening to music.

    Alternatively, is there a way to disable the auto-dim when listening to music?

    Why can't you just go to settings > Autolock >Never?

    Because he said he doesn't want to.

    OP, I think its going to be hard because weven when you're not listening to music the iPod app runs in the background.

    Why not just have the auto lock only engage after so much time has passed since you last used the phone, keeps auto lock enabled but gives you some time before it locks.

    Maybe a screenie will help, i suck at explaining it.

    That or get that sbsetting for keeping the phone awake. Forgot the name.

    I don't think mine turns off when I listen to music.

    You can also double tap the home button on the lockscreen to bring up ipod controls.

    Thanks for all your suggestions, if anyone can remember the sbsetting that would do this please let me know. I thought about backgrounder but I'm not sure how it would work in this situation. Thanks

    Found it! sbsettings autolock allows you enable/disable the autolock. Thanks again
