Default [WIDGET] Themed\Modified default SGS3 weather widget

This is an alpha build for testing/development by those who know the risk!
It may destroy all your data, brick your phone or make other permanent changes to your device.
You have been warned!

This widget, in its current form, was pieced together as a PROOF OF CONCEPT ONLY!
This is a themed and modified version of the stock Sammy weather widget.
It was originally the default weather widget in a ROM I was building for the GN2, now I have SGS3.
I Will Not Be Continuing Development
I Will Not Provide Support
This is a flashable zip, wipe cache

What Is Here:

100% of the PNG's from the GN2 version
100% of the XML/Layout re-writes

Whats Missing:

Support for landscape

FAQ:
Can I Use/Fix this widget as a project and call it my own?
---Not much to fix but if someone wanted to re-write some landscape XML's to match my
portrait XML's I would gladly link/add it to this post with thanks and credits to the XDA member
who undertakes this.
---Themers who like the layout but want different text ,numbers etc. may change any aspect and
repost elsewhere. Just hit Thanks.
---Devs who want to add this or a version of this to their rom may do so. Just hit Thanks.

Is this widget good enough for daily use?
---No, it has not been adequately tested and bug-tracked for daily use. Feel free to use this thread to
post bugs. I will help answer theme/dev related questions in this thread if needed (if i am able).

Will this cause battery drain?
---Not that I am aware. Please feel free to post if you experience otherwise.

Progress indicator now shows in top right
AccuWeather icon moved/transparency added

Much smaller file size

No problem... I think I have the main AccuWeather app somewhere too, themed and modded to match this widget. Might take a little digging, and a good half hour uninterrupted to port it over, but if people are liking the widget I could make it happen.

Might try..
“My wife told me last night I had to choose her or playing around on my phone...I told her why such an easy choice? Now which one do you think I chose?"

does this replace the orignal widget or does it simply add another?
