    The evasi0n JB is supposed to let you have the Weather app on the iPad. But I don't see it at all. Is it hidden and I need to unhide it after JB?

    I'm interested in this too. I have an iPad mini and I can't figure out a way to get weather in either NC or on Springboard (I have dashboard X) without the stock weather app. If anybody knows how to get it, or how to get weather in Dashboard X or NC without it, I'd appreciate the help.

    Make that 3 of us curious about this. Is it possible that it is not showing up on the iPad 2 because since we do not have Siri there is no reason to have the weather app included? I know it is hidden but used by Siri on the newer iPads.. Thats the only thing I can think of..

    I'm also interested in finding something in cydia that at least replicates the stock weather app, but haven't found anything compatible with io6 yet.

    Lockinfo 4 had the perfect weather plugin, but sadly, lockinfo 5 doesn't offer it. :(

    My Mini has Siri but no native weather app. Don't think it had it before JB but never paid it any attention so I'm not sure.

    That was a bug in the original version.
    The weather app just crashed anyway.

    The Cydia updates have already addressed the weather app crashes on the iPhone

    Used the above guide, but in place of using a ftp server, I used iExplorer to add the bundles as I'm on a mac and have no ftp servers installed.
    Everything seemed to go smooth, other than the Weather Icon/app didn't install. But the Weather shows up in the notification center, and was in the settings listed under weather widget. I also tried renaming the Weather bundle to WeatherNotificationsWeeApp.bundle with no changed results.

    When taping on the weather in the notification center, it will open Yahoo weather in Safari. Pretty wild, but I'm ok with this, as the notification center weather was all I was really after anyway.

    I don't use Stocks, so I uninstalled through Itunes.

    Oh this is on a Ipad Mini.

    Glad i could help and make it work, the weather app is from the iPhone, it should work if you install it the normal way :)

    That looks like a lot of work

    Can you repackage that into a cydia tweak for an easy install

    I tried using the guide pasted above, but was unsuccessful in getting the Weather app to install. When the weather ipa file was synced in itunes with my iPad, i got an error stating that it could not sync the weather app?

    Are there any more details you can provide to make the install a little smoother? I am on a Mac and am using iExplorer as well.

    Thanks for this! :D I now have weather!

    I had to sync the weather app twice for it to go over for some reason, and couldn't get the SSH to connect, but I found that just copying the bundle files over using ifunbox worked.

    hadn't even occurred to me that the iPhone versions would be enough.

    I like your dock. Which tweak are you using to get the 8 icons in it?

    Search for weather in the itunes app list for your device and see if it's listed and still waiting to 'install'. It did copy over to my ipad when I clicked sync but didn't install itself, so I had to actually go and click the install button to get it to show up.

    did you respring after installing? it shows up in mine and i dont crash.

    ifunbox or iexplorer should work fine. the weather app should install and show up as an iphone optimized app. try downloading again

    infinidock, i wish apple had a max of 8 icons instead of the 6, such a waste of space

    @lokster,
    Yes, repsrung a few times. Switched the WeatherNotifications.Bundle that I had renamed back to it's original name. Nothing seems to change.
    The weather info shows in the Notification center, but no weather app/icon appears.

    It's been working fine this way though. Just strange is all that it's only partly working.
    I wouldn't think that by placing the bundles by using iExplorer would make much difference. But maybe it does.

    Thanks for the reply. I am still getting the error message that the Weather cannot sync with iTunes. I tried iFunbox but get the error code Error# e8000036. I have appsync installed from the sinfulrepo, so I am not sure what is going on??
