My problem is with the current weather not the 4-day forecast. It's not behaving like GPS weather should. If I change locations, it does not update to the new weather for that location.....the 4-day forecast does but not the current weather. I've been working on this for days and I'm starting to go nuts! Best I can see by looking at the code is that the 4-day forecast gets location from the MyLocation.txt file in the .../documents/ folder while the current forecast does not - it seems to be looking for something from "LibWeather". I'd like to change the code so it too looks for the MyLocation.txt but over the last couple of days I've been unsuccessful. Any help at all would be GREATLY appreciated. Please let me know if you need any more info to diagnose problem.
EDIT: Part solved. I'm now getting current weather from the MyLocation.txt file (took lots of playing with the code but finally got it!) but it's still not updating on the fly automatically.

I "think" the theme is looking for the current location via /var/mobil/documents/myLocation.txt. This myLocation.txt was not on my iPhone so I did some research and found and downloaded an app from Cydia called "MyLocation" (of course that's what it's called...hahaha!). It created the myLocation.txt file within the /documents folder.
If the location still doesn't update when you go from one place to another, try this (I saw this in another post): Move the myLocation.txt file out of the subfolder and put it into the "root" folder of the theme and try again.
For some reason when I was modifying your (modified) Impulse theme, I no longer get any Forecasts. That entire box is just displaying a cloudy view (although it is cloudy where I live!). I've messed up too many files I guess! LOL! I was able to use the Buuf weather icons for the "Today" weather info, just not working for the forecast...Guess I'll look into it more tomorrow....Yawn...Nite All!

Thank you all for all the help and thank you Doreen for this awesome theme. I've done a few tweaks to it myself to customize it. Oh yeah and thank you REL for your black theme too! Love the BUUF community!! Here are some pics. ImageUploadedByModMyi1364537199.835446.jpgImageUploadedByModMyi1364537214.001915.jpgImageUploadedByModMyi1364537231.734406.jpg

("GET","/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.ashman.LibWeather.cache.plist",false); **I don't think the 'false' means don't get it**
It uses the native weather iphone app with the "LibWeather" cydia app in order to get location/weather. Where as the MyLocation method uses the phones actual GPS coordinates. I'd like to change the code so the current weather also gets it's information using MyLocation; the same way the 4-day forecast does. Make sense?
Now I haven't tried moving the MyLocation.txt file because the code specifically has the path "var/mobile/documents" which is where the file is. But maybe I will give it a shot just to see what happens. Thanks again!

Maybe we need to change the Location and NOT put in our WOEID, Address or Zip...Have you tried that yet?

Sorry I looked on my external Hard Drive and I don't have it anymore I think it was a Lockinfo theme I made for a member here that goes by the name of "Scarch" he was in my old thread for the Buuf iPhone 4 HD you could send him a PM to see if he still has that theme okay. (but I don't have it anymore I just checked)

GPS Based HTML Lockscreen Weather Theme
As you can see in that thread if you read the last couple of pages, we are not alone - many having this same problem with weather widgets only updating location after a respring. Again, I don't think the problem is with the MyLocation app or the MyLocation.txt file as that test will prove - that only leaves the widget
It's funny, I'm sure there are many people out there who see an image, a correct location and a temperature and assume their GPS weather widget is working correctly. But how many truly are? Location and weather should change instantly when travelling (notwithstanding any SetInterval settings in the code).

To anyone that has been trying to figure out the lock and chain lockscreen: I have it on my ipad and I'm trying to see what I can do. Do you need the lock and chain to be up higher, above the camera thing? Or do you want it moved over to the left? I'm not sure if it looks the same on my ipad as it does on your phones. I feel like I may be able to help you with this. Can anyone post some screenshots with a detailed description. That will help since I only have an ipad. Thank you.

The Chain Links run under the Camera Grabber icon and when you attempt to slide the Camera grabber icon upwards (to access the camera on the lock screen) the Chain/Lock Unlock Image appears but you can never really access the Camera app from the lock screen.
I hope this is making sense!
I've attached two pictures. #1 showing the end of the Chain/Lock image appearing "under" the Camera Grabber icon and screenshot #2 of the Broken Lock image being displayed when moving the Camera Grabber icon upwards.
Thanks for your Help! If you do get it working on the iPad, please send it our way!!!

I'm still looking for the resolution to have the Current Weather get automatically updated when you change locations. Thanks so much for posting this theme! I'm having fun modding and testing it. If you want to also use it on your SpringBoard, just change the name of the LockBackground.html to Wallpaper.HTML!
I used Doreen's Weather icon sets instead of the HTC set since it is Buuf'd. I modified your "Impulse-McFly PSD.psd" so I could move the Forecast Table down a touch. It was a little too close to the status bar for me. I did not do the best job as I'm really crappy with any image editing. I would like to have other colors as well as your maroon color. Is there an easy way to do this and if so, can you tell me how? I am so lame just trying to make any simple image changes! LOL!
I also changed the Forecast day of the week color and text size so I could see it more easily and quickly. Ahhhhh, age will catch up to you all! LOL!
