    Ever wanted to know the weather without opening weather app every time?



    If yes, then this your lucky day! Follow the guide below add a weather widget to the homescreen! (Only for 2.x version)
    You must have WinterBoard installed to follow this guide.

    Here are the steps you need to follow:

    1. Download the weather widget from here.

    2. Extract the zip download in the above step to get .theme file.



    3. If on a mac, right click the file and choose show package contents. If on windows, it will simply show up as a folder, open it.





    4. Open folder named private.



    5. Open the file named configureMe.js, edit the things below and save it. On a mac, use text edit and on PC, open it with notepad or textpad.



    • City, Country: Change it to your City and Country (Beirut and Lebanon in our example)
    • stylesheet: change it to the stylesheet you want (split in our example)
    • iconset: change it to the name of iconset (klear in our folder)
    • interval: change it to time (in minutes) after which you want the weather to refresh (35 minutes in our example)



    6. Connect to you iPhone using SSH and go to directory /Library/Themes/ and place the .theme file there.



    7. After that, go to winterboad and activate it.



    All the credits for making this possible goes to Zetetic Apparatchik @ MacThemes2 Forum

    The credit for taskbar stylesheet and taskbar_city stylesheet goes to therealduckie and Gitykins @ MacThemes2 Forum

    Any idea if this is going to be available through Cydia within the next week or something?
    If not, I'll do it manually. If so, I'll wait.
    =D
    Great idea!

    I think you should do it manually as you will need to edit the city details and all manually...

    I was getting the loading and question mark but figured you have to set the folder permissions to 777.

    I repeat, set the WeatherWidget.theme folder to 777
