When I downloaded and installed Same Status, it didn't work properly so it booted me up into safe mode and I needed to remove the package and respring. Just FYI in case someone runs into the same problem as me!

Anthony, how did you miss GroovyLock that has over 80,000 downloads already! Not to mention the updated WidgetWeather that now eliminates the outdated MyLocation tweak. Yet QuickStrobe with 8,000 downloads makes your list. Is there some reason that we are constantly over looked?Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!

I honestly would like to see something written up about groovy lock/widget weather. I see the description but I like how Anthony tests it out and dumbs it down for us.

I found a free version of Springtomize 3 but there are glitches deported in all versions.
I hided the app labels but when you tap on an app to open it the label momentarily shows while the opening animation is played.
There are other glitches that ICU pointed out.
