Q. My GIF wallpaper does not shown?
A. Currently, there seems to be a limitation to the size of the GIF file. Sometimes, even your device has enough free RAM, it still cannot be shown. Recommended to reduce the dimension (not the file size) & the no. of frames of the GIF, then try again.
Q. The GIF animation stopped after a certain period?
A. Turn on the GifEndless option.

A. Wallpaper(L) folder only supports JPG files.

A. You're probably running a custom-made HTC Home plugin. Try to figure out where the plugin is installed (e.g. \HTCHome\), then copy all HH_Weather_XXsmall.png files to \Windows\. Restart iLock2.
Q. There is no registry key called UserWeather in my device?
A. Create it (as STRING) by yourself.
Q. How to make use of UserWeather?
A. You have to manually update the registry key UserWeather (STRING) under \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\A_C\S2U2. The format is "icon|index|high temp|low temp" where icon is S, P or W (Spb Weather, Pocket Weather or Weather Panel).
Or "icon|index|string" where "icon" is C (custom), "index" is the weather icon & "string" will be the message displayed underneath the weather icon. e.g. "C|50|Rainning" means the \gfx\weather\50.png icon & "Rainning" will be displayed on screen.
has created a MortScript to update it through Yahoo's weather, details at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=358952
Q. Why there is no current weather info shown?
A. Because S2U2 only shows TODAY's FORECAST info from other weather applications.
