    My Weather App not working since 2.1 OTA. Does anyone else have this problem, and does anyone know about a fix?

    Mine wasn't working for a while after the OTA either. Here's what I did:
    Menu > Settings > Accounts & Sync - make sure your Weather "account" is in there.
    Click on it and you have more options -
    check "Sync weather data"
    Account settings: update every hour

    Did you add the HTC Power Control widget? I did and the weather wasn't updating because I turned off the button second from the right (the sync icon).

    After that my weather has been ok.

    You can also do menu/settings/applications/manage applications - wait for the apps to load then search for the weather app and clear data

    you NEED to have background data on and auto sync on as well. something i do not like to do, but with 2.1 you need to do that.

    if its force closeing, you need to go to menu-settings-manage apps- and clear the data and cache in the weather apps.

    should work then.

    Thanks guys. At least the weather widget on the main screen is working. But the weather app still crashes when I try to start it. I haven't figured how to have "background data" on. Maybe it will work when I get that done.

    Well, I powered the phone off and when it powered back up the weather app works fine now. Thanks for your help.
