Well AKU3.3 has some changes in the GPRS connection behaviour I noticed.
I am now able to run connections over multiple APN's (ie Blackberry RIM and Vodafone simultaneously). This has also afected TomTom6.03 behaviour (with previous AKU it started mute if i had an active GPRS connection, now it works like suppoesed)

Um, that'd be why you add your own? *confused look* Use a zip code, or get a code from AccuWeather.

Default Error when creating Cab file

Could Not Find C:\Documents and Settings\Home\Desktop\N2A-Packager\N2A-Packager\tools\htchome.dll
The system cannot find the file specified.
Uncompressed file detected. Compressing with UPX...
upx: htchome.dll: IOException: file is write protected -- skipped
Preparing cabinet install...
Could Not Find C:\Documents and Settings\Home\Desktop\N2A-Packager\N2A-Packager\
tools\htchome.dll

================================================== =====================
Process is complete, and was successful!
Install the cabfile which has been placed in this folder to your phone.
================================================== =====================

I did post the file in the tools folder and ran the batch file. Also, I am using T-Mobile Web in the US. I am not the most technical person with cell phone hacks so any and all information on how I can get the weather to work using T-Mobile Web in the US is greatly greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance...

You're not supposed to put the DLL in the tools folder, you're supposed to put it in the folder above (the "N2A-Packager" folder). Also, the packager doesn't patch anything - that is purely if you have an already-patched DLL. You may wish to use the N2A Universal Patch Package if you don't have an already-patched DLL.

I did as mentioned and am using the N2A Universal Patch Package. I put the HTCHome.dll in the folder as you mentioned. The following is the error I get:

The system cannot find the file specified.
File not found - unpatched.dll
grep: unpatched.dll: No such file or directory
Performing patch...
Reading from unpatched.dll...
Error opening input file unpatched.dll

Could Not Find C:\Documents and Settings\Home\Desktop\N2A-Patcher\N2A-Patcher\to
ols\patched.dll
================================================== =====================
Process failed! Unable to patch the HTCHome.dll file correctly.
Either this file has already been patched, or something has gone wrong.
If you are sure the file is not pre-patched, please report this error
on the XDA-Developers forums, using the link from

I feel like such a noob.

"There is no application associated with "n2a-patcher". Run the application first, then open the file from within the application.

Been at this for hours... dll file in the folder before tools with the patcher. Searched the entire thread, to no answer. Any help?

Running Windows 98 perchance, or something similar? It's a .cmd file, which was designed to be used with the Win2K or above command interpreter. I have however renamed them to .bat in the new packages, which should work on any Windows operating system. Grab yourself a fresh download from the download page.

The first message, the "The system cannot find the file specified." suggests it's not finding the htchome.dll file at all for the initial copy, which is weird - it should abort before going any further.

I've repackaged them, with a specific text file saying exactly where to put the DLL file - try the new package from the download page, and let me know if you still have the same issue.
