    Hi all

    I was wondering if it is possible to have a app coneted to wifi network while the phone i locked.

    Normally the wifi will switch off when the phone is locked but i need the VNC server on cydia to stay connected while locked

    There's one that starts with an "I". It's on Cydia.

    Get KeepAwake from cydia. This will keep the wifi on even if the phone is locked

    iOS4 introduced persistent wifi, so wifi no longer shuts off when phone is locked.

    I just remembered this when I was cahrging my phone last night. If you plug it in to charge it the Wifi stays on no matter if it's locked or unlocked
