    I've started tooling around with minimalist text to make a weather widget that will complement the time and date contrast wallpaper.
    When it registers a location it looks great but during the day using green power it will give me an "unknown" label for the weather and "..." for my location. Is there a way for it to either hold the previous data if an update fails?

    I have the weather update set for an hour, with a 1 minute refresh if it fails but green power only turns on my mobile network once an hour.

    Yea, I hate how it does that. Kind of a pain, but you can go into the settings>global settings>force weather update and click it 1 or 2 times and then back out and press ok. 99% of the time this fixes it for me, give it a shot

    Thanks. That's what i was trying but unfortunately in my work building i get spotty reception and the force update doesn't always catch. Maybe i'll email the developer to ask for a "hold old info" toggle.

    So if I just wanted to change my battery icon in my notification bar to one of the circle ones like some of y'all have, do I need to be rooted?

    Just wanted to say Worm, I LOVE your layouts! Clean and sharp looks good...

    Can I ask what widget you are using on your lock screen? The one that is showing the weather?

    The lock screen is from Zedge, search landscapes and it should be one of the first 10 or so. The home screen I got from someone's dropbox on xda and unfortunately no longer have it as the users dropbox link is broken

    That's about the only reason I do it, so I can tether my kid's iPad on the occasion we travel or bring it with us.

    Used the auto-root method here: [Auto] Root and Unroot (Windows)**Updated**4/20 - Android Forums

    Had some connection problems when I tried it a couple times, switched to another laptop and went without a hitch.
