Increase Lock Screen timeout

I have installed a plugin to display weather on the lockscreen, but the timeout is too short for me to read all the information.

Can this timeout be modified?

PS. What's a nice lockscreen weather & time app? I'm using Weather Elements at the moment. Thanks.

Hey boii its been a long time since my last post but anyways to delay the timeout there's a tweak in cydia called lockscreen dim delay or you can use 20 second lock screen.

The date and weather lockscreen theme i use is iHrt or typophone 4

Is it just my Verizon Iphone 4 that can't extend the lock screen? I've used 20 sec 60 sec and the dim lock screen tweaks and none of them extend the time. Are they not compatible? I am on 4.2.8 I can't recall if it worked for me on 4.2.6 any one else read or had this problem? or know a way to manually change the file?

I've searched all over on other forums and yes even google as somebody suggested I tried on a different forum... Like I didn't think of that... (Ten times before deciding on posting on forums and waiting weeks for somebody to answer...)

I don't like having a million and twelve tweaks and CPU draining add-ons like others have suggested... (I have plenty for my needs)

I was also wondering if any super modders out there knew which file to poke around in...
I've edited a few plists and such but am still very much in the technical darkages compared to most on this forum.
I was able to find out how to manually select alternate default lock times and got my screen to lock after 20 seconds as opposed to the minimum 60 cRapple allows. I would also like to have the lock screen stay on longer than it does so I can read artist info and access certain functions in sbsettings drop down menu before it goes black.

Anybody have any suggestions besides downloading more stuff?
