          There is no TiffOpenOptions object in the JS DOM, so the answer is no. You'll have to open and the change the resolution in separate steps.

            The resolution property is read only. What is the method to change the resolution after opening the tiff file in Photoshop.

              Just like in the GUI you change the resolution with image size.

              docRef.resizeImage(undefined, undefined, 300, ResampleMethod.NONE );

                If you only want to change the resolution it could be done in Bridge.

                #target bridge
                var newRes="300";
                          var thumb = new Thumbnail( app.document.selections[0] );
                          app.synchronousMode = true;
                          var xmp = new XMPMeta(thumb.synchronousMetadata.serialize());
                          var ResX = xmp.setProperty( XMPConst.NS_TIFF, 'XResolution', newRes+"/1");
                          var ResY = xmp.setProperty( XMPConst.NS_TIFF, 'YResolution', newRes+"/1");
                          var PerInch = xmp.setProperty( XMPConst.NS_TIFF, 'ResolutionUnit',2); //Pixels per inch
                          var newPacket = xmp.serialize(XMPConst.SERIALIZE_USE_COMPACT_FORMAT);
                          thumb.metadata = new Metadata(newPacket);
                    }catch(e){ alert(e); unloadXMPLib();}
                function loadXMPLib(){
                if (ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript == undefined) {
                    ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript = new ExternalObject("lib:AdobeXMPScript");
                function unloadXMPLib(){ 
                   if( ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript ) { 
                         ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript = undefined; 
                      }catch (e){ } 


                The cache will need to be purged to show the correct details though.

                  I know that Paul no longer visits these forums, however if anybody can get the script in post #4 to work that would be useful in the following topic:
