[CAB] Sense 2.5 - Less clouds (For people who live in a cloudy country)

OP HJ200

18th May 2010, 09:04 PM   |  #1  


Because I live in a cloudy country, I never have the Sense weather animation turned on. It just keeps on filling my screen with the white clouds, which doesn't make Sense looking quite good.

But the weather animations are pretty cool, so I made a CAB to disable a few clouds. Unfortunately the whole raincloud is gone too, but that doesn't seem to be a big problem to me.

Installation:
  • Copy and install the CAB from the attachment
  • Softreset / restart device

Uninstall:
  • Uninstall cab in "Remove programs" section. Default clouds will be back again.

[Update May 19]

I seem to have missed a cloud when creating the cab, which was still purple for testing purposes.
Cab is updated now, cloud is gone

[Update 2 May 19]
It seems another purple cloud slipped into the cab, updated to v3.

I find my phone home screen also too cloudy! So I recently started disabling the the weather animation, which I really do like.

Is it safe to uninstall this after installation. You know, just in case. Thanks.

Great idea!

Melbourne (Australia) has a cloudy winter and my home screen appears to be under a constant state of fog *lol*

Like others, I love the animation, I just find I have to try and see through the clouds every time I turn my phone on. This is a great app!

Brilliant job! Thanks!

Cool
Brilliant! My gf and I were really hoping for something like this.

Even worse, my gf forgot to tick the 'update automatically' option on the HD2's weather, and it 'rained' for two weeks!! She was hating her phone until we realised. hehe.
