    I am looking for some feedback on how iPad L.A.W. is running on IOS 4.2,lots of people have already updated to 4.2
    My iPad is still on 3.2.2 and iPad L.A.W. is running well on it.I didn't want to update until I finished iPad L.A.W.and was hoping an untetherd jb would be released by now.
    now I have finished iPad L.A.W. I can now update my iPad's OS and make any changes that are necessary to make iPad L.A.W.work on IOS 4.2

    I'll start looking into which jb is best and do it asap,any info would helpful.

    Thanks,
    Keon.

    I would definitely wait on the untethered JB because the tethered one is a pain in the a**. I am pretty sure the untethered is coming pretty soon because I can remember a few days a ago or so when like comex showed off the untethered one so Id say its probably close to final stages at this point.

    I only am using the tethered JB because I got stuck in a continuous reboot and had to restore after updating some apps in cydia but as soon as the untethered comes out I will restore again then use that one.


    This is on ipad 4.2.1. Seems to work but wallpaper does not work. Sorry the screenshot is blurry i uploaded through photosbucket app on my ipad

    Oh and it needs summerboard mode

    summerboard mode makes it zoomed in and blurry why do you need it in summerboard mode?
    I have summerboard mode off.
    What do you see with summerboard mode off?

    No wonder it was so blurry. With summerboard off I get this:


    Not sure what should be where the question mark is though.

    OK that looks better,
    the "?" is the wallpaper that has no image.that's becauce IOS4.2 has changed the HomeBackground.

    Do you have ifile and can you check for the location of the wallpaper.png on 4.2
    on iPad 3.2.2 it was: var/mobile/Library/HomeBackground.
    and on a 3Gs on 4.1 it is:var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/HomeBackground.
    if someone could have a look and tell me I will update it for 4.2

    The jailbreak I used on 4.2.1 was redsn0w 096b

    On 4.2.1, why can't I just change the <Img src in wallpaper.HTML to the destination of a .png?

    Hey D_LA_ROC since your on 4.2.1 would you mind trying this out and seeing if you get the same issue?

    Heres wallpaper filename and directory (screenshot from iFile)

    You can if you know how.
    Or you can delete the Wallpaper.HTML
    if you are using another theme that has its owne Wallpaper.HTML

    Do you have ifile? if so Please could you look at /var/mobile/Library/Springboard/and see what the HomeBackground's file extention is ".jpg" ".png".or maybe something different I guess Apple could have changed it.

    Think I will update to 4.2 and jb tonight so tomorrow I will be able to help more.

    There is no homebackground file in my var/mobile/Library/Springboard! Only applicationstate, iconstate, iconsupportstate, and LockBackground.cpbitmap!

    I even tried adding a HomeBacground.png with my wallpaper as that and it didn't work.

    Keon, I don't have an iPad but downloaded your theme out of interest, all I can say is what a fantastic job you did on this, you have every weather condition in their Unbelievable.

    I hope that everybody that downloads this from you remembers to hit your "Thanks" button in the first post

    I can see now why this took a bit of time to accomplish, there is nothing else like it.

    Hey,

    Is there an installation guide? I have tried but just get the questions mark in the middle of a black screen. It looks awesome and would really like to get this on my ipad. Also, does this cover postcodes (zipcodes) in the UK?

    It looks amazing!
    Cheers
    Danny

    Hi Ian

    Maybe you can help I made iPad L.A.W. On IOS 3.2.2
    Now that 4.2 has come out the location or name has changed for the HomeBackground.
    It may be the same as on the iPhone on 4.2

    If you are on IOS 3.2.2 it should work,just put it at the top of Winterboard and it is setup to use yahoo weather so it will work with yahoo weather codes. I don't use (zipcodes) so I don't know about them.

    This is a mod version of Dusk-LIVE Animated Weather[LAW] made for iPhone so you could check that thread for info.

    Also Ian Nicoll has made an updated version of Dusk-LIVE Animated Weather[LAW] for iPhone called UniAW that has the same type of animations as mine but is for the iPhone.the link to UniAW is on my first post,Ian relesed UniAW two weeks ago so any question you may have could have been answerd on that thread.

    The code that makes the live animated weather work is the same in all 3 of them thanks to wyndwarrior (Dusk-LIVE Animated Weather)who first got the code for the live weather animations to work.

    if you put another theme thats wallpaper is working above iPad L.A.W.in Winterboard that wallpaper.HTML should work.

    from what I understand Apple has changed something in 4.2 that is stopping the wallpaper from working on all iDevices
    as soon as I can I will get the background working on 4.2

    did you try var/mobile/Library/Springboard/HomeBacground.cpbitmap or /LockBackground.cpbitmap

    Hi Keon,

    The only thing I can tell you is that on the iphone it is now:
    "/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/HomeBackground.cpbitmap". An unreadable file
    But so far there is no real solution, the people that have it working are using the "work around" method that means putting your background into the widget/theme itself with a link to it in the html. This of coarse means that if you want to change your background you have to transfer it each time to the widget/theme folder from your PC/Mac.

    Yeah and heres the screenshot i posted on the last page for reference to the file name:
    i belive this is probably like the whole situation with themin keyboards without iacces because since 3.x apple started using .artwork files that contain dynamic images so i can work on all iDevices from the same image files. It is impossible to theme this type of file through winterboard but this is different than a .artwork file. However there is a way to extract a .artwork file and a way to turn normal .jpg or .png images into dynamic images but someone told me that it is very dangerous messing with these files because that person got their iphone to a point where it couldnt even be restored after messing with the keyboard .artwork file.

    I really hope a solution can be found for this perhaps even as simple as rename a .png image to .cpbitmap.

    If you put an image in the theme file will it display in full resolution?

    Heres a bitmap file extractor I found for someone here on 4.2 that runs windows:
    Download Bitmap Extractor 2.3 Free - Extracts bitamps from files of any kind.
