Default Transparent AccuWeather

Source: DroidViews | Install Transparent AccuWeather Widget on Your Samsung Galaxy S4

Must have a S4 with a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP installed on it.
Must be deodexed or if your on stock rom, use root explorer and navigate to /system/app/ and delete the AccuweatherPhone2013.odex and go to all apps and clear the cache from weather.
  • Boot into recovery and make a backup.
  • Wipe cache and dalvik cache
  • Flash the zip file
  • Wipe cache and dalvik cache after flashing.
  • Reboot and enjoy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~

4x6 Home Screen - 5x6 App Drawer : DOWNLOAD HERE

Stock Odex Rom
Download the SecLauncher3.apk from link above and place it on your sd card.
Use root explorer and deleted SecLauncher3.odex
Copy SecLauncher3.apk from my sd card to /system/app/ and overwrite the original when prompt.
Your phone may reboot before you can set permissions but you can go back to root explorer and change it.
After setting permissions just reboot the phone and your good to go.

Deodexed Rom
Just copy the SecLuancher3.apk to /system/app/ and set permissions and reboot.

Tips: After your phone starts backup and your widgets looks funny or cut off, just delete the widgets from the home screen and just re add them back and they will resize themselves.



Dark Dailer
I hated the stock white mms, contacts, and phone.
If your on stock, make sure to delete the .odex file

Request 4x6 please

When I tried my hand at it, it seemed that certain homescreen sizes broke the widgets sizing. Is that what you mean?

Are you trying to install them? You need to remove the original apk(s) from /system/app folder and replace them with the ones included on the rar file.

Hello all,

Was wondering if anyone knows how you can install the galaxy S3 stock weather widget on a Galaxy note 3. Is there a download for this.

I'm sorry but I don't know if what you want to do is possible. The S3 is Android 4.1 while the Note 3 is Android 4.3.

When I search Google for "S3 stock weather widget" I find many sites where you can download the widget, some may be modified to run on other devices. All you need to do is try them until you find one that works.

You can also try posting your question in a Note 3 or S3 relevant forum. This sub-forum is for the S4.

It's been a while ahhhhh, but if your on metro stock rom using root explorer dont forget to delete the .odex files before moving the dailer, comtact and mms over and set the permission to -rw-r-r and reboot.
