Thread: Installing widgets on the iPhone
11-07-2007, 02:53 AM #1Installing widgets on the iPhone
Ok it is official I'm completely stumped. I got the widget app from installer and I've been looking at alot of posts in the forums on how to install the widgets to the iPhone but to no avail I found nothing. I went to google and found less. I get as far as downloading the widget ZIPs from Apple's website and then opening ibrickr and accessing var/root/library/widgets. I don't know if there is another program I need to use in Windows, or if I'm missing something. Can someone please help me?

In the zip file from Apple's site, you should see three items. __MACOSX folder, a folder named for the widget, and a file which is similar but prefixed with "._"
Just copy the folder named for the widget to the /var/root/Library/Widgets folder on the phone.
for example: The "Versatile Unit Converter" widget has the following items in the zip file:
V U C.wdgt (Folder)
._V U C.wdgt (File)
I copied the "V U C.wdgt" folder to /var/root/Library/Widgets and it shows up in the widget app. tap on the entry and it loads.

Keep in mind that very few Widgets actually work on the iPhone at this time.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
