Default changing htc home weather xml file in schap's rom

hi, im running schap's awesome (big thank you) 3.30 rom and i cannot overwrite the original htc weather *xml file in windows

i've tried disabling the home plugin, ive tried through activesync, through file explorer, ive even done a hard reset but with no luck
ive searched for this (i know people always say this) but could only find how to change the xml file,no one seemed to be suffering from this problem

i could change the xml file with ease in black majik rom
any helpwould be appreciated

many thanks

Default solution, i guess...

when you start working witk .xml file in windows, first change the file attribute and uncheck the box "read only". make the changes, save the file and then check the attribute again make the file "read only" again. i hope it works. it worked for me...

The weather XML file is in ROM, you can't overwrite ROM files with File Explorer. For that you need to replace the file using another software like Resco Explorer, and disable the Home plugin before doing it, to have more chances that it works.
