Rigght I finally got the app installed on MIUI launcher but it force closes everytime i try to open it! Im getting very frustrated with this now!
Ive tried everything including clearing caches and dalves caches it just wont open! Any chance anybody could make a zip version so I could just install it through flash? Thanx in advance
Ahhh so i wasnt alone in this! I thought I was doing something wrong. Belive me I tried EVERYTHING! nothing worked! zip file is the only thing left to try now!
Turn off the GPS toggle, go to edit icon top left of the main app and switch off. That will solve that issue for you and anyone else with the problem.
go to mod forum, download my wallpaper scroll zip, rightclick on zip file, open with 7zip (if u dont have it get it), go to system/app folder in zip, drag miuiweather.apk into there (u will now see miuiweather.apk next to launcher2.apk) and delete launcher2.apk. then flash it
Thanks Mark for your work on this. I was able to push the app to system/app on my phone using EX File Explorer and loaded the widget no problem. I turned off GPS and added my city and works good. It took me while to figoure out "go to edit icon top left", but eventually I got it. All you do is tap on the city name and it will change it from Webster City to the one you have added. Thanks! Can't wait for GPS to get added!.
I do not see a SPACE on your command between .apk and \system\app
"C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb push MIUIDev_Weather_EU_Beta.apk\system\app"
Could that be the problem?
OK Im a lil lost. Ive draged miuiweather.apk to the system/app and deleted launcher2.apk. but what do I do next?? I pressed move but it didnt turn it into zip file!!?
Mate are you for real? we have REAL life jobs!
WTF you deleting the Launcher2.apk for?! did anyone actually tell you to do this?!
Do this and it works!
1. Download the European APK to your PC or MAC!
2. Download the corresponding miui_city.db from the link under the European APK!
3. adb remount
4. adb push file.apk /system/app (replacing file.apk with the proper file name!)
5. Open the app, it will likely Force Close!
6. Now push miui_city.db to /data/data/com.miui.weather/databases/
7. Re open app!
Yeah StiffSpliff told me to make a zip out of apk via 7zip. Anyways I did all of the above before. The only thing I didnt do was to adb push miui_city.db cos it was already there!! should I push it anyway???
you didnt say this earlier. you said that you had pushed it yourself. delete the db file and push the correct one back
