    Hey, I just need a little help with the live weathericon tweak in cydia. When I first downloaded it, everything worked fine. Now it doesn't do anything besides change the temp. The background remains the same, and both options totally vanished from winterboard. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, also nothing.

    I also tried changing the app, in Supreme Preferences, to the weatherbug app. But I guess I had the application identifier wrong, because all it did was remove the live temp. from the weather icon.

    Any help you guys can give would be awesome, cuz I really liked this tweak. It was simple, convenient, and just made sense. I don't see why apple didn't add it in the first place, like the calendar app.

    Yeah same thing happened to me. I think its cuz he added other files to the tweak that lets you install it without needing Winterboard. It updates the temperature but thats all. Test it.

    Install the Klear Weather Background and activate it in Winterboard.
    If it works, like it did for me, and you get active icon background, pretty much it just never installed any of the Winterboard related theme items, so we cant deactivate WeatherIcon or toggle the "default-like" icond backgrounds.

    No idea how to get it working again, ive pretty much tried every combination of operations to remedy it. Hopefully someone can chime in with a fix.

    Nevermind I just found the fix on another site.

    Install the Katra Based Weather Icons in Cydia. It gives you the original ones from WeatherIcon. I just did it on mine and it worked.

    Thanks, man. It's little things that bug me. lol. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't working, but your idea worked perfectly.

    Yeah no problem. I was pretty bugged about that too so I emailed Ashman and he got back to me pretty quickly letting me know that he just separated the WeatherIcon tweak from the IconBG packages.

    BTW Great tweak, I love it.

    Yep, it really is awesome. Especially on the status bar with the image:)

    I agree, I always was so annoyed when the icon said 73〫and a sun and it was -32〫and cloudy around me. Sorry Apple but we all don't live in Cupertino.:(

    I just wish WeatherIcon could display weather for your current position. I'm sure your location could be determined pretty easily using 3g/EDGE and you could set your update interval time to not drain too much battery life.

    That would be very nice.

    No problem. I'm sure lots of ppl were pretty confused by the update.

    Now, even though he separated the two packages, is WeatherIcon showing up in Winterboard for you guys? Cuz it doesn't for me. Only the IconBG packages are available through WB.
