    Same as nik1975, i cannot go to settings as it goes to safe mode immediately when you are on homescreen. So cannot even turn on location service.Cannot even test anything as it keeps going to safe mode after you unlock the device. SO no choice have to uninstall the widget and everything goes normal.

    But I did reinstall using the version 1.4.8 which runs smoothly for me.

    @Newdestiny I am not sure what you mean by weather.app running. But I am one of those who is having problem with the stock weather crashing but I have done the ilex Restore before I tried installing 1.4.9 and my stock weather still crash and the widget 1.4.9 still goes to safe mode every 5 mins even without me doing anything on the phone. So uninstall 1.4.9 and tried 1.5.29, this is worst as it goes to safe mode almost immediately you cannot even access your homescreen.
    Hmm. Very interesting. You also have Weather.app crashing issues.. And the 'every 5 minutes' crashing issue is also what I experience with 1.4-9 and then crashing right after opening springboard is what I've experienced with 1.5-26 BEFORE I do a RESET ALL SETTINGS. Then I'm stable for a while..

    GOOD NEWS! This time I turn on location services first before I upgrade from 1.4.8 to 1.5.29 ( but before that I uninstall Gridlock and Iconoclasm, just in case). It worked the widget stays normal without going to safe mode and I am running the WW iwidget and Steph most recent WW LS Grey. Then I reinstall back gridlock and iconoclasm. VOILA, everything else goes perfectly smooth!
    Thanks people, for all the input and help! Feels so nice having my phone back to normal
    WOW!!!! I just had a springboard crash immediate after opening.. And my Location services were OFF... When I turned them off from SAFE MODE.. then NO MORE CRASH!!! I think we're on to something.

    Nik - were you able to fix your crashing doing what Mrsmickey did??? Please try..

    EDITED: Okay.. I can make this crash REPEAT on my phone.. 4 out of 5 times.. Damn - wish it were 5 times.. You MUST keep LOCATIONS SERVICES ON with WIDGET WEATHER switched on at all time to prevent the crash (those of us who are having it)... This was NOT needed in 1.4-8 or 1.4-9.. I wonder what changed in this version requiring it to be on (for some of us).. King and Durben or Krima, beta test team -- can you switch off your Loc Services and see if you can reproduce the same crash? THIS MAY BE A KEY to my 'relative crash hell' from last couple of days..

    I hope Stephen doesn't require us to keep LOC services on as it can be a real battery drain..

    Leaving location services on does not use much battery.
    This tweak is set up not to run when the phone sleeps and kick in at wake up.
    You can see it if you leave your phone display off and locked for 10-15 minutes and then press the home button.

    And I've said in first post to enable location services for weather. Although there shouldn't be a crash when it's off.

    Another thing, the deb was removed from first post so that everyone can be on the Cydia version and on the same version. Using an older one for whatever reason doesn't help us.

    Thanks for the trouble shooting MrsMickey

    Yes. Excellent design.. But other tweaks that use a LocServices element - don't sleep like WW.. So when you globally turn off LocServics when indoors you can save some battery. I know I do. But I'll leave it on for now. It's worth it to have no crashing.

    Location Services is definitely a major contributor to battery drain. But it of course depends on what apps you're using that use LocSvcs. I believe the alpha and beta team if they say WW isn't a big drain. But switching LocSrvcs off, for me, when I'm indoors can add 2-3 hours more battery life for me in a day - so since it's not WW's running it must be other things I'm running causing the drain. Your Mileage May Vary.

    I noticed my widget wasn't updating this morning so I switched to manual and went into the weather app and this is what I got…


    Never seen that before. I assume its yahoo and not WW, but I figured I'd post just invade it is the latter.

    Well, for the record...I am still using 1.4.8 and it works flawlessly. I have travelled halfway around the world in the last month and back again, and it updates as designed. Am I in town A which is 300m down the road from where I am standing in village B? Don't know, don't care...the weather is the same in both places anyway. Does it update within 230ms of my moving to town A?...don't care! What it DOES do is tell me the current weather. I don't have the need to stare at my phone and watch the location, weather icons, and Hi/Lo temps change. I just check the weather from time to time. I am happy with that. Great work guys! I love this widget...I guess there is no need for me to update to the newest if the one I have works well. Wait and shoot...

    Just for Grant!
    This is a little Google-Maps cydget for the Lockscreen, which will show you the GPS position from the latitude and longitude values from the widgetweather.xml file. So now you can check if the GPS position the Widget Weather tweak/iOS Weather App is using, is actually where you are.



    You can run any Winterboard lockscreen theme you want, as long as you have the Widget Weather tweak installed and the "Extra Weather Details" in it enabled (needed to get proper GPS values).
    To switch from your current Winterboard lockscreen theme to Google-Maps-Cydget simple press the Home button, to go back press the Home button again.
    Installation
    1.) Install Cydget from Cydia
    2.) Download the attached file and copy the "Google-Maps.cydget" folder into /System/Library/LockCydgets.
    3.) Respring, so Cydget can see the new Google-Maps cydget, never mind the info on the lockscreen, we change this now.
    4.) Open Settings->Cydget->Lock Cydget Order
    5.) Drag "AnyView" to the top spot and select
    6.) Drag "Google-Maps" below it and select
    7.) Unselect "Welcome"
    now it should look like this



    8.) Respring
    9.) Enjoy!

    The Home button cycles through all selected cydgets starting from top. "AnyView" cydget is a dummy cydget so to speak, that's why you see the Winterboard theme. Press the Home button and "Google-Maps" cydget is shown, on top of your Winterboard theme. Google Maps is fully interactive, you can zoom in and out, move around, change to Map view, activate Street View and move around etc. Below the map is the full address Google can find for the GPS position. You also can unlock the lockscreen from any cydget, depending what unlock method your Winterboard theme uses. Mine uses Tap-to-unlock and so does the "Google-Maps" cydget. Press the Home button again and you are back at "AnyView" cydget, so you see the Winterboard theme again.
    Now you can actually check what GPS position iOS Weather App uses.

    Thanks, Ras! This looks very cool for a 'location geek' like myself. Thanks for thinking of me.

    My phone has entered a period of 'instability' due to (I think) my accidental erasure of a file called backboardd in the var/mobile/Library/preferences folder. That file regenerated itself after a 'restore-looking' progress bar under the Apple insignia after I erased it. But since then my phone has had weidnesses... one of which - is that with even the newest WidgetWeather 1.5-26 -- I don't get consistent updating of location anymore. Sometimes it works well for hours - other times not at all. I notice too - that, even when Constant Mode is turned on - WW seems to be tied to me opening the Notification Center to change. My Weather.app is unstable for some reason.. It's often blank - even though Location services for both Weather.app and WW are on. It seems that when the Weather.app on my phone is not updating.. neither is WW..

    Durben and King said throughout this thread - that Stephen TOOK OVER the Weather.app - which I assumed to mean 'bypassing it in some way'... Whatever I did to my phone.. (and I have no idea what the backboardd [yes, two 'd's' on the end] prefs file does) it made my Weather.app from Apple unstable and inconsistent in updating. Tragically - that's made Widget Weather also rarely update consistently.. .. It's a CRUEL JOKE that "I" of all people, who fought against any notion of a new Weather data engine being associated IN ANY WAY with Native (Weather.app) would NOW have his worst fears realized... that as ustable as Native weather is/was in updating automatically - is exactly the problem I'm experiencing with Weather Widget. ...

    PLEASE, PLEASE HEAR me, Derrick, Brian and others.. I am NOT blaming WW for my current status.. If there were a GLOBAL problem with WW, as a tweak, by design, then WAY more would be experiencing what I am. I have to assume that my phone either has a tweak conflict or something's wrong with my jailbreak. And there's some corrupt prefs file I can't get to without a full restore - that's causing my problems with WW. I rewrote my widget to get coordinates from myLocation.txt and that's perfectly stable on my phone. Only Widget Weather is affected - because it's tied to Weather.app. And my Weather.app must be corrupt somehow.

    I've already done 3 iLexRAT Restore II's in a row.. 1 time through iLex doesn't get rid of everything.. 3 times gets rid of most things.. but still leaves Gridlock 2.0 -and a lot of Folders that tweaks create are also left on the phone.

    I am currently looking for a 6.1.2 iPhone5 on the distant back shelves of some Best Buy somewhere -- hoping against hope I can get a fresh jailbreak soon. So I'm pretty bummed after all the work I've done.

    Before I did something whack with my phone.. back on WW 1.4-7 and 1.48 -- even with the sticking occasionally WW was an UPDATING MACHINE!!!!! As I've said - that made some of you conclude my 'OCD'-ness... that I could walk from from front yard to my back yard and WW would update my Township before my eyes - as I live right on the border of two townships. It was amazing.. Those days are gone... and I want them back..

    But even with a fresh phone -- I'm not sure I'll get ALL that accuracy back as it seems Stephen, to correct the GPS problem that caused the sticking thing... between 1.4-8 and 1.4-9, used a different localization method that is slightly less accurate than 1.4-8..On may way to work from home, WW, in 1.4-7 and 1.4-8, would accurately update 7 times.. which marks the 7 cities I pass through. After 1.4-9 (and before I messed up my phone) it would show only 4 - that's about the accuracy level of the MyLocation tweak.

    WW is still the weather widget engine of the future... NO DOUBT! I still support it 98%. But until I fix my phone or get a new one.. I have to live a 'broken' WW... (no fault of WW's itself)..

    Peace!

    I've been playing with this now, Ras.. Is it supposed to cover my whole iPhone 5 screen? It looks sized too small. Is it built for iPhone 4/4S? Also what do you mean by your last statement there? Did you rather mean to say that this Cydget checks the coordinates for what WW(Widget Weather) is reporting? Or is that the 'same thing' as saying Apple's weather app?

    Very cool concept! Thanks again!
