    Hi Guys.

    I just received my Xiaomi MI2 from ******* today and I successfully flashed the latest build of MIUIAndroid ROM - 3.1.19.

    Everything is running great, however I cant seem to get one app, rather a widget to work.

    Im attempting to install the stock Android Genie Widget aka the News & Weather widget. I have installed it before successfully on a MIUI ROM on the S2 as well as other Android devices and I know others have managed to do it to.

    But it wont install. It keeps coming up with 'Application not installed' in red. I have tried installing it as a regular APK and have also pushed it to system/app via Root Explorer. I checked the permissions are right: rw-r--r--.

    Still no luck. It wont install, nor will the widget show up in the widget tray. Its a shame as its one of the best widgets available on stock Android/AOSP.

    Can someone please help?

    Thanks.

    Thank you so much. That works great. Its strange that the other APK doesn't work even though I went through the same process.

    Maybe it was an older apk for ICS. Bye

    Thanks for the file. When I upgraded my redmi note to miui 25 I lost this app. I was able to install it without copying to the folder you mentioned.
