It is not clear to me why a weather widget that utilizes weather.com would be affected by what Yahoo is doing?
I lost 2 weather widgets..
My lockscreen is Black Edition by frenchitouch, (at the moment, I go back and forth exxOS, Shine, and so on) and a widget called 3DaysForecastS (free on Cydia).
Both using weather.com which is the Weather Channel, so I am kinda lost understanding why I lost my weather.
Additionally my Weather apps all work...
What am I missing???

It's been some time now since Yahoo played around with code as affecting a number of weather widgets causing them to go down. I appreciate Yamakasi's prompt work and fix for Lockscreen 4. I've been wondering whether there are any plans to work on fixes for any of the other lockscreens, in particular, LS 2 and LS 5 v1.1?

My standard exxOS lockscreens and widgets work.
The free, optional and user made lockscreens use UniAW6 with a forecast for more than one day.
This isn't working any longer for any weather widget because of some changes Yahoo made.
So first we need a new UniAW6 with a working forecast and then hopefully the creator reworks these two Lockscreens. I can' promise you that and can not
support or fix the work of others.
I know, i released their work, but I don't feel and i don't think i'm responsible for it. They are free and not part exxOS.
I'm happy enought that my own (paid) widgets for work or i could fix them (like now for SHINE).
As far as i know there is still no working UniAW6 with such a forecase (please correct me if i'm wrong) and users also report a lag and battery draining of version 6.2 (maybe only caused by the tons of new animations, don't know)

Thanks for your timely reply, Blue. I know your widgets work, and the other lockscreens are mods that you were kind enough to release. My question was directed more toward the creators, not you. I do not believe you (or for that matter anyone else) are responsible for fixes- I was, however, wondering if anyone else was working on this problem or if this is the end of the story!

I am using exxOS LS4.
Since anyone may already be sufficient, please correct a program immediately and raise "theme.js" in new "UniAW.js."
Thank you for your consideration.

I just can't get the ls4 weather widget to work along with forecast, I really hope there will be a fix soon.

I'm not sure if anyone is still interested in a fix for exxOS LS 5 v1.1 or not? I understand most efforts are directed toward Blue's most recent theme, Shine, and understandably so (I have that too). In any event, there is a fix for the weather which takes it back to prior to Yahoo's meddling with the code. The following is from the forum for UniAW6.0 for iph4 & iph5 and was posted by Marty Mcfly on 5/28. I have used his fix; it couldn't be much easier and it works! Thank you Marty!

Really easy to get things back up and running yourself with a 4-day Yahoo forecast (if that's what you want )....
1) uncomment the lines discussed earlier in this thread to fix the "one-day forecast issue".
2) If your Yahoo URL weather call line in UniAW6.js looks like this:
var url="http://xml.weather.yahoo.com/forecastrss/" + zip + "_" + tempUnit + ".xml";
...then change it to this...
I've already received lots of PM's about the Yahoo line looking different for some people. If your your Yahoo URL weather call line in 'weather.js' or whatever other file your are using just looks like this:
...then you need to change this line which is just below the URL line:
Hope that helps
BTW - I would sincerely like to thank yuengling25 for bringing this to our attention

I have my LS5 v1.1 back working now but the left corner touch no longer works and just switches on the slide show. Have I missed something?

I never got an answer, is there a way to disable the loading screens? i feel it makes the iphone 5 look slower
Loved your theme and bought it btw Youve made all the themes i always use on my iphones
06-12-2013, 01:33 PM #3117
iOS uses loading screens, they are just replaced. There is no difference in speed.
Without a theme looks terrible and incomplete.
You can delete them: search for all graphics with "Default...png". This is not recommended as you get stock blueish iOS loading screens back then

What do I need to do to make a weather lock screen full screen? Do I need to change the js file?

I have managed to try this theme successfully and i am very pleased with it, however the only item i didn't know how to enable was the PAGE INDICATORS. I know there is a readme file but i still couldn't follow well. The file assumes that we enable EXXOS theme after we do step 1. I just dont want to disable my EXXOS fearing all icons will be in a mess.
Can someone please give me a brief step by step instruction on how to enable the PAGE INDICATORS please? I am using iphone 4
