Set custom speed of iPad Picture Frame slideshows iOS devices
The iPad settings let you only choose a few values for the slideshow speed setting: 2, 3, 5, 10 or 20 seconds. I prefer a slower change of pictures.

To be able to set custom values, you just have to edit the preference file "com.apple.pictureframe.plist" (in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences) and set the SecondsPerPhoto value.

Either with iFile (app freely available in Cydia, only for jailbroken iPads): you go to the "Preferences" place, scroll down to "com.apple.pictureframe.plist," touch the file icon and choose "Property List Viewer."

Or for non jailbroken iPads, you can use the Mac app iBackupBot to edit the file inside an iPad backup and restore.

I like using a value of 180 seconds per photo (= 3 minutes), but you can just set whatever you would like.

iOS 5.1 on my iPad 2 has this in the "Settings->Picture Frame->Show Each Photo For" options.

of course, but you can choose only between 2, 3, 5, 10 or 20 seconds.
