Hello, any one know how the icon link work when the theme is changed in summerboard? My weather icon is stuck with the stock icon but every thing else works. Everything was working fine until I took out my sim card. Any help would be great. I have tried other themes with no luck. Thanks

I'm on 1.1.2 and I have the same problem. I'm backup (WinSCP) all my summerboard themes before upgrading to 1.1.1 and I reinstall them after the 1.1.2 upgrade. But the weather icon don't change.
Yes I take care that Weather.png is correctly writing. But no way to change to any selected SummerBoard theme.
is really strange before the update all the icons changed perfectly but now all change except the weather icon.
Can anyone here help please?

This happens because the new 1.1.2 firmware uses the icon from the Springboard default and not the one from the weather.app.
Heres i guide i made up myself to help you guys out on this problem.
1. SSH your iphone and go to /Application/Weather.app/
2. copy Info.plist to your desktop
3. go to this link Binary to XML converter
4. Click browes on their website and locate your info.plist
5. Click convert and save your file
6. Open the converted info.plist in notepad
7. locate and delete <key>SBIconClass</key> <string>SBWeatherApplicationIcon</string>
8. paste back the info.plist in your /Application/Weather.app/ folder
9. you can delete the other icon that is in /system/library/coreservices/springboard.app/, the file name is SBWeatherCelsius.png
Your all good, now your icon will change along with the summerboard themes.
If i was able to help you, im really deperate for "thanks" just hit the thanks botton.

Thanks it works perfectly. Do you know why I don't need to change the file back to a binary before placing it back? Thanks.

Thank you Forsyt. You save my live
11-26-2007, 05:29 PM #6
Wow, so much hassle just for one measly icon...!? But thanks, man...I guess I'll try it...
Before I do though -- what if I want to go back to the original...?! I mean, SummerBoard themes are fun and all, but there's always new ones around and in the end eventually one might want to have the default back...!?

11-27-2007, 06:08 AM #9

umm... I deleted the SBIconClass SBWeatherApplicationIcon words and saved the file then pasted back into weather app. Now I don't have any icon! and I also deleted my backup info.plist so if anyone can direct me to that file or just upload the modified one for me that would be great.
I didn't touch the _ or the ] symbols. Am I supposed to?

running 1.1.2 over here, any help would be great..!

Easy fix - Go to settings/general and change Region Format (back) to United StatesTo live, you have to lie
12-25-2007, 03:33 PM #15
well, found a way to correct the invisible weather icon w/out resorting to converting back to United States region (as reusing iWorld to get back to Thailand standard didn't work for me in the past as detailed above)... i just recreated the SBWeatherCelsius.png icon w/in Springboard.app and changed it to the icon i wanted. not a perfect solution since if i want to change themes in the future i will have to do again, but better than having a hole in the springboard...

Hi would it be possible if someone could place up picture instructions cheers would be helpfull for novices like me cheers

You need to have SSH or any iPhone file manager to do this.
1. Make a backup of the Info.plist file (/Applications/Weather.app)
2. Download my fix file. (http://www.modmyi.com/forums/downloa...o=file&id=1936)
3. Extract it.
4. Overwrite the file in the iPhone with this file.

Got ssh on my iphone but unsure of how i use it had got filefinder on there too just a novice when it comes to iphone really . So how to i open the ssh and what do i do from there ? Thanks

Well, I can't help you with SSH, because I don't know a thing about it either, but I can help you with getting a file manager for your computer, which is as good. What OS are you running on your comp?
