    Adding a removal feature was discussed with eldwin before. Not sure what he is doing about it.
    The way I mentioned worked. Once you rename and Respring you go back and rename the widget to its original and add it again. It shows up in top left again.
    You can always clear your cache after renaming as well which should remove the saved states of widgets that are inactive.

    Correct, readding it again will create a new instance and place it on the top.

    But on my device, (I just tested it again ) the original one that was originally added and positioned then renamed/respringed/renamed back/respring was still there in its original position. You would have 2 instances now on your springboard, the original and the readded one.

    So this behavior isnt happening on your device?

    Just physically tested it again, but tried wiping the caches with iCleaner inbetween, the original still stays. What other cache cleaning program were you referring to?

    Just dont Respring after naming it back to the original
    Rename it, Respring, it's gone. Rename it back then add it again.
    It will then save the current state.

    Gotcha That extra respring is what was throwing me off. I was having it re-appear after I renamed it back and resprung.

    Thanks for clarifying this issue. Now we all learned how to remove a stubborn iWidget thats stuck

    if you downloaded via cydia then they should already be where they need to be! if zip file right click and extract all if its rar file can use something like 7zip then to add to device ya need something like ifunbox or winscp (Google) then move each folder to var/mobile/library

    Edit: Thought I would help ya get started




    7Zip Download 7-Zip

    also iFile from cydia is useful

    i think it was already said.

    for a basic iWidget:
    rename the Wallpaper.html to Widget.html and add the Widget.plist

    if you want an iwidget with options you need the Options.plist (look at the first post to know how to do it)

    Schnedi's explanation is correct in every way but a little oversimplified.

    After you've renamed the SB(SpringBoard)Widget's .html document from "Wallpaper.html" to "Widget.html" you have to deal with a few more things.

    1) 95% of all SBWidgets have a background wallpaper that you'll have to get rid of. It's often an IMG Source reference early in the Wallpaper.html(renamed to Widget.html now) you have to get rid of.
    Look for something like this:
    //<img s rc="/var/mobile/springboard/ConvertedBackground................"> style="position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px; width: 320px; height: 480px; z-index: -20;">
    ..and get rid of everything between <img src= and the ">
    DON'T GET rid of anything called: <img src="Style/Overlay.png"
    You'll need that OVERLAY and sometimes UNDERLAY for the widget part you want to covert. You're just getting rid of the 'full page background' in this first step.

    2) Then you need to move the OVERLAY and UNDERLAY (if there is an underlay) from where it is on the original SB Widget to as uppermost and leftmost as possible as if the corner of the overlay (rounded or squared were sitting at the top left of the screen. This takes some playing with but you can use negative numbers to achieve this.
    For example if it looks like this:
    <img src="Style/Overlay.png" style="position:absolute; top:301px; left:20px; width:320px; height:480px; z-index:-10;">
    You could change the top:301px to top:0px and the left:20px to left:0px.
    --NOW - that only works if the Overlay (main art behind the information of the widget) is separated out as its own image. If it's part of a larger dual layer document where there's a transparent part of image surrounding the overlay part that defines your widget - then you'll already see it sitting at Top:0 and Left:0... In that case you have to trick it a bit by using negative numbers.. as if you were sliding the page up and off the left part of the screen.. So top:-201px and left: -18px.. Then the main pic BEHIND the weather info now sits in the upper left.

    THEN - the tedious part starts.. You have to subtract that same amount from the top and left values of all your style stuff in the Main.css file.
    #city
    #temp
    #hi temp
    #lo temp..... for ALL of them you'd have to subtract 201 from the top value and 18 from left value of EACH info tag (#......)

    3) Then often, for GPS weather widgets, the reference to the MyLocation.txt file - its path needs to be changed in the Location.js script file - since an iWidget is located in a different path in the OS from Themes. If - in the first JQueryGet command in Location.js you see "file://......." - then you're good as is! But if you see a bunch of ".. /../../ ....." before "var" -- then you have to remove them all until you just see "/var ......."

    4) Lastly just copy any Widget.plist, from any other iWidget you have, into the widget you're converting -- and then all you'll have to do is reset the height and width numbers to something that's a little larger than your actual widget to define its boundaries. Make sense?

    That should get you going.

    u gotta know the basics..and rest could be a piece of cake for you if you know how to play with.html and .css files..

    Most people don't know, DarkNight. That's why I gave the longer explanation. You guys who do these all the time it seems very easy to you. But I'm the guy that wants to make sure people learn "all the steps". :-)

    but "play" with css it's too easy! you have to undersand the code to do a good widget! most of the widgets around have a lot of lines with useless code you should know what to delete, change or add.

    move things, and change colors can be done by anyone

    once you understand the code you can do almost whatever you want/imagine!!

    Well -yes. But the vast majority of people don't have time to learn code. They just want to make their widgets look a little different - which can be done without cleaning up any code.. That's for sure. LOL!

    Yeah. Most of us don't need to learn to 'create' code. We just want to change some colors. And now with iWidget - it's so easy to convert most SB widgets - I think many 'intermediate modders' will prefer iWidgets over regular widgets. I'm surprised it took so long for this thread to really catch on. This is a really old thread actually that just recently got revitalized when I started asking questions too. :-) Now I have more iWidgets than regular widgets. And I have SOOOO many more options.

    Now I just wish our master modders were interested in more widgets than just weather ones. We need artistically done info widgets for facebook, news, calendar events, etc.. So many more. Weather widgets dominate these threads. There's more to the way we do life with our phones than weather. ;-)

    yes, but then they are asking hey "Moder's name" can you move this there? and put this here? and make some code for me?

    sometimes i recieve PMs saying: hey schnedi, i really love your work (say it just when gonna ask you a favor) can you make me a widget? i want this, this and this. i'll appreciate it. tia


    it's like. WTF? i don't ask you anything, just to hit the thanks button when i share anything, you don't thank me and then ask me to make a widget just for you? Modders make things for themselves and share! if you want it's ok and if you don't like do it yourself


    and i'm sure that happens to all modders! i don't even answer

    And this is why I ask. Surly it's more satisfying making some thing for yourself. There is lots and lots of widgets out there and if we can learn how to code our own, we can make what we want. And like I said something made by your own hand has got to be satisfying. Rather than just putting your finger on the screen and hey presto you have an amazing tweak.

    I am sure that I will never be as talented as you guys, and I am sure I will have lots more questions, but if you don't ask you don't learn.

    I assume that the same theory works with lockscreen widgets too ?

    And all codes I have ever altered I have done on iFile, so if I was to do this on a PC would I just open the HTML and the strings in note book. Or can somebody recommend something else (this may be a stupid question but I don't care LOL)

    Thanks

    And this is why. A year ago I started a thanks party thread, it's now closed but it's a funny read if you ever get time. And it will explain why I am the random thanks collector.

    I started it after helping loads of members out with Jailbreak issues and un lock issues and nobody ever said thanks LOL

    LOL i know what u talking about...modders like schnedi.max pa1n,Durben,Chevy,dacal,metaserph,mone,MAMAjay. and many more...deserve more than thanks because of their awesome work but unfortunately most of the users do not even press the thanks button or write few words to admire their work...
