I had this app on my 4S before but can't get it to work now. I'm running 5.0.1 and jailbroke using absinthe. It's enabled in settings but the weather icon is blue with nothing else and there's no status bar symbols. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and rebooting but it hasn't helped. What should I do?

Go into your iPhone default weather app, go into the settings and turn off 'Local Weather' Instead, set your location manually in the weather app... for some reason Local Weather doesn't play nice with 3rd party weather apps like Weather Icon, and plugins for LockInfo etc.

I already had local weather turned off.

hmmm local weather worked for me... I don't know what else other than try the manual override for weather icon.
I had basically the same problem yesterday but someone helped me with the local weather thing.

Try this thread for the info on how to manual override and correct settings: (the link is in that thread)

https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/1313095/
That thread is talking about Lock Info Weather Plugin. I'm using Weather Icon. I tried putting my city code and used override but it didn't help. The weather icon is still blue and no status bar icon :confused:

Edit: I'm not sure why but turning on Use Wind Chill fixed the icon and now I have a status bar icon.

Try turning on Use Wind Chill. Seems to have fixed it for me.

It seems like every time I respring I have to go to Settings > Weather Icon > then leave Settings for the status bar icon to show up. Would be nice if anyone has a fix for this?

I don't know why a lot of people are having trouble with Weather Icon. It works perfect. Are you talking about having it set next to the battery? I have it on the app itself. No issues. I don't have windchill on. I just have it set to every hour.

When I first jailbroke and installed it, it worked fine. This time round it isn't. It took a couple installs and uninstalls to get the icon to work. It was blue before that. Now the status bar icon next to the battery only works after respring if I go to Settings then exit Settings. I thought I had to go to the Weather Icon settings pane but I don't. It's not that big of a deal but I would like to not have to do that but I don't know how or what to do.

I have the same issue as the OP on my newly jailbroken iPhone 4S.. WeatherIcon does not display temperature or icon in the top status bar and the app icon is coloured blue.
Tried using manual override, disabling local weather and setting wind chill, respringing, reinstalling, nothing works.

Any ideas?

Almost a thousand views and no one has a solution
Im really frustrated bc this is one of the reasons I jail broke.

Hey PM all your tweaks, lets compare what we have added. Maybe the ones we have together are the tweaks that are causing this. PM me asap!

dont know about the status bar issue, but as far as the blue icon goes you have to delete all saved locations (including your home location) within the weather app and then re-add your location(s) and it should work. i had same issue and it worked for me.

Mine strangely started working after I installed the "slide to dismiss" tweak from Cydia - one respring after installing and the status bar icons work as well as the app icon theming. I rebooted to confirm this isn't a one off - works fine now.

There must be an odd interoperability problem with other tweaks - I have intelliscreenx, zephyr, barrel, bitesms amongst a couple of others installed - but then the real question is why would it suddenly start working after just installing a new tweak if it was some other tweak stopping it from working correctly?

libweather is one of the two components installed to your phone when you install the weathericon package in Cydia.

So I guess what andrewr23 meant was uninstall weathericon, reboot, then uninstall libweather, reboot, then reinstall the package and tweak about with the settings until it works.

Didn't work. This sucks, will have to remove everything one by one to fix it.
