I'm not using MIUI, but when clicking on the widget it FC.
Is it a normal behaviour ?
Working perfect for me after ADB push of both files, thanks Mark, beautiful app! Hope you can add Dublin to the db soon, I'll use Belfast for testing purposes :p

I don't have root explorer, won't work with file explorer, I'm on an evo and it will not install.?? thanks
Okay I feel a little defeated. I tried moving the apk and db from the download location on my sdcard to /system/apps. attempter to install via root explorer and it says APP NOT INSTALLED. What am I doing wrong?

CDMA Desire

btw: i don't use adb. am i screwed?

What app did you use to move the apk? If you used root explorer or an equivalent, all you need to do is move the apk to /system/app/ then set the correct permissions to rw-r--r--

Read Write Execute
X X _
X _ _
X _ _

If you need to manually move over the DB file (I didn't need to, the app sucessfully created it properly), just move it to /data/data/com.miui.weather/databases/ and set the correct permissions to rw-rw----

Read Write Execute
X X _
X X _
_ _ _

And you're done! Let me know if you need any more help.

Follow Marks steps here:

Use adb, if you don't have it download the android sdk.

adb push file.apk /system/app

Replacing file.apk with the file name.

Same deal with the miui_city.db to /data/data/com.miui.weather/databases/


step by step using root explorer

move miuiweather.apk to sdcard
open root explorer and navigate to /sdcard
long press on miuiweather.apk and hit COPY
navigate to /system/app
hit menu - PASTE (if it says you can't because its read only, hit the top right button mount r/w, then paste)
longpress on the miuiweather.apk in /system/app
select permissions
make checkboxes look like following: (where x indicates check, 0 indicates unchecked)
Read Write Execute
X ---- X ---- 0
X ---- 0 -----0
X ---- 0 ----0

(all three checkmarks in first column, first checkmark in second column)

same thing with the db file, except instead of /system/app, navigate to /data/data/com.miui.weather/databases/ to paste it
and permissions should look like this
X ---- X ---- 0
X ---- X -----0
0 ---- 0 ----0

you SHOULDNT "install" anything, just move the files to the proper places with proper permissions, and reboot.

i will look into making a flashable zip for each apk if there are still a lot of people having issues

Absolutely gorgeous and once installed, working great!

Worth every penny, pence or shilling....

Thanks, man.

It has started to just FC on me now even if I uninstall and push it again, not sure whats gone wrong.
hey thanks for the hard work just wondering if there is support for Canada coming soon

thanks matt
The texas version of the app would not install. I dropped it into system/app and set permissions. Rebooted and it worked.

Fantastic work Mark!
Didnt work through root explorer! Had "parsing error". I hav adb so I added the apk/db file to the directory of sdk tools folder. debugged my phone and tried the commands but Im clearly not doing somthing right! Can somebody set me right??

The California version of the app is working for me. I copied it to my SD card vis USB cable. Copied that to /system/app using ES File Explorer on my phone. The app showed up on my desktop and I found my city right away. I did not need to do anything with the city db file. It's a nice looking app, thank you for your work!
Georgia version confirmed working on the Incredible. Great work guys, now I don't need that skinned Fancy widget anymore :)
When I try to download the city db I receive the following message: Download unsuccessful - Cannot download. The content is not supported on this phone.

Any ideas from anyone? As for "pushing" using adb, to be quite honest, I have no idea what that is or even how to start. I know this is going to end up being a pain for Mark, but if there is a layman's way of installing this application, I would be greatly appreciative.

Installed via Root explorer, rebooted...stuck on loading screen. FML...

edit- booted into recovery, cleared cache and dalvik cache, all is good : )
We would need the weather.com location magnet codes for your city, countries - this applies to anyone else who is experiencing missing locations. We added over 68 thousand locations to MySQL and SQLite, we will be looking to drop this in BETA 2.0 but for now this is what we have and we can do what we can to add more support for other locations.


Dude, How can I supply you this information? I made it with my own hand (verified weather.com) you can verify in weather.com

Downloaded the file through the xda developers website, and it still would not install.

I then went into recovery mode and wiped cache. I am bowed the proud new owner of the weather app hahahaaa!
