    Hey Gus this might be a stupid question but i loved the stock weather widget an the memo pad to.i looked on the market for the accuweather widget that comes stock and it is not there. So i tried to pull the apk from the deodexed pack that was posted here and attempted to install it. None of them installed properly. Its there any way to get those widgets to ginger steem or should i just give up

    The only thing I miss is a notification tone that didnt make it into Gingersteem. Sucks having to search for tones, there are millions of them lol.

    The stock WeatherWidget uses quite a bit of battery TBH guys... just to let you know, atleast from what I have seen in researching it for 5 minutes LoL and also, do u still want to know how to get the stock LG Launcher?

    I must be missing something, I have worked with roms and android for a while now but this memo apk is not showing up as a widget or in the launcher

    Here is what I have done pulled it from the download put it on sd card used root explorer on the phone to browse to the sd copied it to the /system/app, after toggling r/w of course.
    when I reboot and long press the screen and go to widgets memo is not listed, when I open the launcher and look at the apps memo is not listed.
    when I open root explorer and go to /system/app its sitting there.

    See if you can't click on the APK file and install it, it SHOULD say "Application Not Installed" then go ahead and reboot, see if this fixes your problem.

    it did say application not installed, however I didnt reboot.

    So install while in /system/app or take it out of /system app?

    Try putting it in the data/app folder and installing it if its not working in the system/app folder. May require a reboot.
