  • WeatherIcon 6 Released With Support for iOS 6


    The popular WeatherIcon jailbreak tweak by dba technologies has been updated Sunday with support for iOS 6. The new version of the tweak is called WeatherIcon 6 and is now available in Cydia’s ModMyi repository as a free download.

    In case you’re not familiar with WeatherIcon, the tweak allows the user to make the Weather application icon more useful. The weather application icon will display the actual temperature of the user-set location, rather than the 73º indicator that the tweak always shows. In addition, the icon will also show sun, clouds, rain, or other weather conditions depending on the actual weather of the user-set location.

    WeatherIcon’s preferences pane can be found inside of the settings for the weather widget in the Notifications preferences pane in the Settings application:



    From the preferences pane, the user can choose the application icon that WeatherIcon will customize. This is great for people that use third-party weather applications that don’t really care to put the current weather conditions on the stock weather application.

    In addition, the tweak also gives the user the option to display the current weather conditions and current temperature in the Status Bar; however, the developer notes that an update to libstatusbar is required to use these features, so they’re off limits for the time being. The update should be out soon.

    Be sure to grab this awesome Cydia classic; now iOS 6-compatible!

    Name: WeatherIcon 6
    Price: FREE
    Version: 6.0.0-1

      You must install WeatherIcon6 to work and not into safe mode.

      weird that so many are having problems. I made it my Photos icon and it works perfectly -- stays updated w/o respringing or rebooting.

      I've been waiting anxiously for this release on ios6 but it isn't good. The weather temp number like many others on here doesn't change. Been -1 no matter what my default weather city is. Hopefully it's just a bug. I don't see what I'm doing wrong. The idea is great. Especially once the status bar is working. Please update or give a suggestion on how to fix this.
      Thanks!

      I eagerly awaited this tweak update since the evasi0n jailbreak came out, but since installing it, the weather widget in NC is empty for Local Weather and the icon on SB shows zero degrees and heavy rain, which is not close to the real local weather.

      I am having the same problems.. It gives correct temperature after respring but after several hours it has the same temp and weather conditions and never changes.

      I don't even get that; just the same temp and condition regardless of reset or respring

      Perhaps a dumb question, but does this tweak draw the weather data from a specific location, or is it the "current location" feed? And in either case, how can it be changed?

      I have to pull down NC 3 times for it to update. Didn't the older version have an option to populate the temperature from other sources? An override?

      On my wife’s phone, the temp is 0. It is set up just like mine with our city the only city in the weather app. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, and changed cities. Still reads 0 with storm icon.

      Even though it is buggy, it’s better than not having it.

      Didn't fix all the problems. The temperature is still wrong on mine. Did this dev do any testing before he released it?

      My temp is still wrong as well, but the update triggered a bunch of other stuff to work, so I am happy for that.

      What's the point of having the tweak if it doesn't do what it's supposed to do?

      The update doesn't appear to do anything differently than the first version - still need to re-spring to get the icon to update.
