    I can't seem to get an answer on this. The location refresh on an iPhone 5 is still not working, correct? I have to respring to get the widget to update my location.
    Same issue here. Everything works great except automatic location/weather updates on the fly as I am travelling. I also have to respring to get the widget to update my location.

    Once again, I would just like to offer sincerest thanks to Ian for all of his VERY hard work!

    Hi Ian/Drifter

    Wondered if possible could the forecast be made into a touch function on the lock screen, please?
    Certainly it's possible, but Drifter needs to wait till I do the 2 new versions of the LS.

    Thanks for the info, but does it update the new location on the 15 minute update interval? Or does it get stuck and you "have" to re-spring?

    I'm assuming you all have Sig.Change turned on in the MyLocation app yes?

    I'm traveling by train into China tomorrow so can test it myself.

    Thanks for the quick reply Ian - you are so helpful and awesome - thanks again! I do indeed have Sig.change turned on in the MyLocation app. Last night before going to bed, I manually changed the coordinates in the MyLocation.txt file. Woke up this morning (too early - thanks son) and my location had not changed. I "resprang" (or is it resprung - lol) and boom, location changed. Hopefully this information helps.

    Thanks, I will test it all tomorrow and see what's happening. Will let you know.

    EDIT:

    I just changed the location coordinates via iFile twice and both times the widget updated the new location within 20 seconds!

    I know Ras and King have some theories in regards to how iOS 6 utilizes sleep mode. I wish I could help but I'm out of league on this one.

    Edit:

    I forgot to mention that it seems to be an issue on the i5 and not any if the other phones.

    I am using it as a LS and just traveled 20+ miles and location changed twice. My full screen icon is working just fine too.

    Not sure what the issues are?

    Yes I know the theories your on about M8, but if the phone is not in sleep mode, if it's on as we travel, (my screen is set to "Auto-Lock: never") then all should update correctly.

    I'm on an i5 too.

    Hey Pal, have you seen this LS issue on an iphone 4, upon switching off the screen and re-unlocking the widget loads the wrong css file (iphone5 one)
    I believe it's down to the way IOS works with it's files and can't be fixed with code, so just gonna make 2 LS versions for iph4 & iph5.

    Okay, mine is set to auto lock and I also lock the phone manually. I'm turning it off now and am driving to work. I'll updated shortly.

    first: Big THANKS to Ian Nicoll for this great tweak

    second: Does anyone has this widget with only the animated weather ?
    no icons, no clock, no forecast, no temp and and and

    only the weather animation for iWidgets

    that will be great

    Ian and Co ... just wanted to say THANK YOU for the AMAZING UniAW update. Some guys (including me) incorporated your amazing work in an exxOS LS mod. Thanks

    Download the WinterBoard one and the iWidget one.

    Copy the Config.js file from the iWidget one into the WinterBoard one replacing it.
    Copy the Options.plist and Widget.plist files from the iWidget one into the WinterBoard one

    Now re-name the Winterbaord one to "MYiW" (no .theme)

    Stick it in your iWidgets folder and enjoy...

    I hope I got this right, ah nvm, it's not my phone

    I'm a little disappointed that I spent a couple of hours adding the FAQ to post 1 and nobody reads it!

    And I know if you have read it or not because I put a little something in their that would make you want to comment about it.

    Now you maybe interested to read it?

    I also have the same issue as bfichtner and MartyMcFly. No update without a respring. This has been the case since iOS jailbreak came out with all weather widgets. This not a UniAW thing. So I don't think Ian can fix it since it happens with other weather widgets of mine too. Haven't tested on my 4S. But the 3 of us are very much in the minority.. I'm still surmising that we share some other tweak in common that's causing the widgets not to update automatically. I can confirm that the myLocation.txt file is updating properly as I change towns.

    Did you bfichtner and Marty confirm that on your end? MyLocation app updating .txt file correctly?
