Optimus 2X Weather Widget Ported to all Android (What's the Catch?)


Do you want to make your home screen on your Android smartphone sleek, stylish and have your friends wondering where you got that?  Well now you can, boys and girls.

Sony_Ericsson_X10, courtesy of XDA-Developers.com, has ported this amazing-looking widget to work on all (yes I said all) Android phones.  How he did it?  In the system dump files of the LG Optimus 2X he found the proper .apk file to take out and do the porting.

Now the catch I mentioned.  To use this widget, you must use a third-party launcher, such as  LauncherPro or ADW Launcher EX, to resize the widget.  When you first select the widget and place it on your screen, it will take up the whole screen thus bringing the third-party launcher into play for resizing.


If you want to try this widget out, click on the link to XDA where you can download it.  You have your choice: a transparent version or you can opt for the background version.
