    Hey guys. Name here is Brian. New to the forum.

    I have looked everywhere on this site for information bout the wifi staying on. Another words it bugs me when I'm listing to pandra and it doesnt go to the next song. I do have my ipod set to auto lock after 2mins. Is there anyway to keep it on?

    Will the teatherd jail break keep it on all the time. I know apple had it turn off to save battery but I can charge it so whats the diff.


    Thanks guys in advanced for any information and if the jail break will keep it on all the time including when it auto locks...


    Thanks Peace.

    You can change it by going to the first thing, (Labeled, "Wi-Fi") in the settings menu, and turning it on or off.

    You would always be able to do this, jailbreak or not.

    As for keeping the screen on for a duration of time before it locks I don't know.

    Ok im sorry maybe I didn't stat myself right.

    When I have the wifi turned on and im listing to pandra on my ipod touch over my wifi network.... My ipod will go go into auto lock and shut off the screen. That is all fine and dandy however the wifi it self shuts off automatically and I have to press the home button to make it reconnect to pandra. Even though my wifi is on in the setting menu. So my question was will the wifi not turn off when I do the jail break automatically? Or is there a way where I can keep it from doing that? I hope I worded better that time. Feel free to ask me any other question to help me get this figured out....


    Thanks guys.

    When it locks the wi-fi shuts off, unless you are downloading something in the home screen like an app.

    Roger that. So if I jail break it will the wifi stay on even when it locks? The reason is because I don't mind having that drain my battery from it running how ever I don't want the screen to stay on all the time and die on me sometime. Which I know it will sometime or I might have something new by then but... You see what I'm getting at?....lol


    Thanks.
