    I LOVE the animated weather widget that is on the HD2, Hero and Evo. I switched to the Nexus One because it fitted my needs better than the others did. Am I missing it or does the Nexus One not have the animated weather widget? I didnt think that not having an animated weather widget would be a big deal, but I am really missing it.

    Can anyone help with some insight?

    I believe the animated widget is from HTCs Sense UI which the Nexus One doesn't have. I assume you can find something similar in the market though, never used it but people swear by beautiful widgets.

    I tried both, Beautiful and Fancy widgets and couldnt get either to animate.

    Thanks for the information, sounds like SenseUI or lack thereof is the culprit.

    Root your phone. Flash a Desire ROM. That's about the only way to get the animated weather effects. Its a Sense thing.

    I really never wanted to Root my phone, but this may a reason to. Thanks for the heads up and I'll keep the thread posted. Thanks again for the info.

    I really like the NexDESIRE Remix ROM. Give that one a try.

    Okay so I just flashed to NexDESIRE v1.2 REMIX. First thing I noticed is that I cannot get my Wifi to connect. Anyone know why?
