Smile [APP]GenieWidget.apk from the Galaxy Nexus

Hello Everyone!

As you may or may not know, the Galaxy S3 doesn't have the News & Weather widget in-built like it did on the SGS2 so lets change that shall we?
Read the instructions below and you should have the news & weather widget back up and running on this awesome device!


What You Need:
Rooted Device
Root Explorer (Or ES File Explorer)
Room on your SD Card


Instructions:
-Download the GenieWidget.apk from the attachments below
-Put GenieWidget.apk onto your internal SD Card (Or external, doesn't really matter)
-Open Root Explorer and navigate to where you put GenieWidget
-Highlight it and select copy
-Navigate to /system/app/
-Paste
-Reboot
-It will be there in the widgets!


Screenshot to prove it works:

I'd appreciate it if you clicked the thanks button

Anyone notice that the weather detail view crashes when "force GPU rendering" is turned on in developer settings?

@OP: Thanks a lot for this useful app, Iv'e been missing during my review of the SGS3 on my portal.

Is there any chance you can port it over to non-root user? :) And if not, please specify why that would not be possible (need it for my article).

Thank you very much in advance and for your contribution to the Android society and other users as myself :)
