I need some help. I have the same problem. I downloaded a stock rom and copied the folder on my phone via usb cable. I tried to copy the weather folder in /system/media and it only copies around 20 files, not all 36 of them. Anyway, after reboot the folder is gone. Can someone please tell me what am i doing wrong and why does the folder disappear on restart?

You can't write files to /system unless you have an unsecured kernel, otherwise all files will be deleted after reboot like you are experiencing. Weather animations are stored in /data/preload btw.

ok, thanks for the info. I copied the files in data/preload and restarted the phone and it doesn't work. I rooted my phone a week ago and I noticed the weather wasn't animated anymore and I searched the forum for a solution and this thread said "solved" and that was the solution to copy them in system/media/weather/. Do you have any idea why isn't it working?

Thanks!

I guess it depend on what sw version you are. On dev edition sw they are located in /data/preload. If you lost you weather animation, I guess its because you have unlocked bootloader. When you unlock the bootloader, /data get wiped including the /preload folder where stock apps like calculator, flashlight etc are stored and where the weather animations are stored. Don't forget to set permission to rw-r-r for all files in /data/preload

no. Factory reset wipe user data stored in /data partition. Root files are stored in /system partition so a factory reset will not unroot the phone. Relocking the bootloader (and/or factory reset) will not restore wiped apps (apps stored in /data/preload) caused by htcdev.com bootloader unlock. All files in /data/preload must be restored manually or you have to reset your phone back to 100% stock using a ruu, a nandroid backup, a stock odexed rom or a guru reset rom.
