I like the Accuweather Widget a lot, but prefer a 100% transparent versions.

I'm on rooted 4.4.2 via Surge's method here.

I've tried downloading a transparent Accuweather Widget I found via Google, and I've tried pulling the one from Hyperdrive. I set permissions, and on reboot the widget crashes.

Is there a working transparent one for 4.4.2?

:Update:
Post 4 has a copy of the transparent widget for anyone looking for it.

The one you have would probably work. I am using one from 4.3 with no problems. Don't forget to set permissions and to go into app manager under all apps and clear data and cache for the weather widget. Then it should work.

Thank you. I had not cleared the cache or settings for the widget.

Using the one from Hyperdrive and it's working great.

Is this a flashable zip?

-EDIT-
No it isn't. It's just the apk.

Install
SO how are you installing this? Do you simply extract it from the zip and install via the phone? I have the GS5 and I have tried that method and it says "X App not installed". I also tried to remove the existing apk in the system/apps folder and paste this one in there and that didn't work either. What I DID notice was the original in my system/apps folder was labeled "AccuweatherPhone2014.apk" and this is labeled "...2013.apk". I wonder if this version will not work on the GS5??

Any help is appreciated!!!
