Default Asus Widgets

Hi...

I did not see this posted in the GSP threads so I am putting a link for anyone interested in playing with the Asus Widgets with their Galaxy Players.

Just to let everyone know, I did not create or mod any of the widgets so I am not taking any credits for the work. Just providing a link for some cool widgets.

Anyway, I tried all the widgets posted on the link and every one of them work good for my setup. I am using CM9 with dpi set at 190 on my YP-G70 GSP 5.0 INT. I am sure this will work with US version too.
I am not sure, however, if this will work with roms other than ICS roms. If anyone with the GB rom wants to try and report, that would be great.

Please follow directions on the OP of the link.

All these widgets need to be copied to the /system/app folder. Permissions need to be set to rw_r__r__. Reboot and enjoy. You will probably want to back up the original apps (email.apk, exchange.apk and deskclock.apk) into another location for safe keeping in case something goes wrong.

The Asus weather widget is a bit of a problem if you live in the US and require F readings instead of the C reading. The save button is hidden and the settings cannot be saved. You need to temporarily change the DPI to 120 in order to set this widget for F temp reading. At DPI set to 120, you can see a sliver of the "Save" button on the corner at portrait mode. Hit this with your desired settings. Once the settings are saved, you can go back to your original DPI and the widget will still work with your new settings.

So... enjoy...
