    I've already read your instructions, but 320x480 is not HD.

    A true HD wallpaper would be 640x960 on the retina display, if I'm not mistaken.

    I'm asking if there's a way to actually use a HD wallpaper, not downsizing a wallpaper to SD.


    I'm aware that winterboard currently doesn't support HD wallpapers, but I'm wondering if there's a way around it while using this widget.

    I am looking for a very unique skin for my ipod nano from a very long and i just got one from here. It is very easy to apply like a
    sticker and can easily be peeled off, Indeed, it gives a very cool look to nano.

    Berbers? You spammer.

    Anyway, with this widget, the background goes black. Can't be overlaid. Um. All I can say is stay away from widgets if you need a retina display wallpaper. There are plenty hd images you can resize that won't look terrible.

    I'm guessing no one figured out how to remove the wallpaper altogether on this one. I would love to keep the widget itself (date time weather icon city) but be able to switch wallpapers. I've tried so much to no avail. Even transparent wallpapers don't work.
    any thoughts?

    Just adding the question too, how to use this with your own background?
    Or is there another Weather "app" that is neat?

    I would also like to know how to go from AM/PM clock to a 24h clock.

    Just a few decades and you will see and understand!

    for the 24hr clock you need to go to widget.html
    // Choose either "AM" or "PM" as appropriate
    var timeOfDay = ( currentHours < 12 ) ? "AM" : "PM";

    // Convert the hours component to 12-hour format if needed
    currentHours = ( currentHours > 12 ) ? currentHours - 12 : currentHours;


    put a // in front of the lines that don't have it (or delete that portion)
    it shows up twice in the file.
    THat may work I haven't tested it.


    for wallpaper you can replace the wallpaper.png file with your own (you may have to canvas resize to 320x480 though :/ ) but I'm hoping to figure out how to use the native wallpaper function with the phone. almost have it too. If I could figure out how to convert the theme to allow hi def (@2x) wallpapers then I may just have it.

    I have this weather widget and I've noticed the weather doesn't update unless you restart the phone, is anyone else having issues like this?

    It is set to update every 50 minutes by default. You can change that in the configureme.js (there are 2 of these)
    at the very bottom you'll see the time interval. Change to whatever you wish. I don't know how that would effect battery if it would.

    Thanks, I found the file and changed it every 15 min. So we'll see how it goes. Not to worried about battery life since I plug it in through out the day.

    Sofia, if you posted here first, you should read some basic threads first on jailbreaking. What works with your phone. What doesn't. Also consider reading this entire thread, because if you want this widget, the answers are here to make it work.

    As for battery life with a short duration of refresh: just refresh the weather page x amount of times where x is the amount of times your phone will. It's not a huge drain at 50. Maybe a percent. Or two.

    I get between 4-5 min per 1%. I have a lot installed not just this. Heck, without this widget I'd still get that.

    I changed the refresh time and it still doesn't refresh, it's been 90* since yesterday and it hasn't changed yet. Colorado doesn't stay 90 24 hrs a day lol.

    Lol. Try double checking your yahooWeather line. Also check no other winterboard widget I'd interfering. I hate to say "check if it's plugged in" but... Check. Lol. If nothing else works, uninstall, reinstall. Edit the location. Turn everything off but that then respring.

    Same problem for me !

    My original 640*960 wallpaper of my theme is downsized to a quarter (320*480) = Awful
    On my former iPhones, i had weather widget, but on my iPhone 4, without WinterBoard update, it looks blurry... We loose all Retina interest...
    Weather Widget is fine, but not adapted to retina for the moment...

    What we have to do ? Wait for a Cydia update ?

    No, switch to iweather. It allows regular setting of background with a fix to respring and see it! Try it out.

    Can you tell me why the time/date is displayed in capitols when the code is clearly initial capital, do not like the capitals, thanxs :-)

    found the line of code in the widget.html under td#date, changed the the line text-transform: uppercase; to text-transform: capitalize;

    Here are the steps you need to follow:

    1. Install the weatherFurikiOs4 widget from Cydia.

    2. Now open this website Weather Location Codes/IDs

    3. On this site in the search field put the city that you want to have in your widget and after you will get the code with 8 number write it down so you can put it later in the configureMe.js

    4. Now open iFile from your iphone and go to this folder /Library/Themes/weatherFurikiOs4/Private/WeatherWidget/Private/ and in this folder you will find configureMe.js file that you have to edit

    5. Now open and start to edit this file and go to this line var locale = "here you have to put the 8 number code".

    6. After you do all this procedure restart your iphone and thats it you'll get what you were asking for.
    Thanks this worked perfect for me on my iPhone 4 4.1
