Does anyone know how to change the text color of the widget text by modding the .apk? I would go through fire for a version of this weather app. with black text - already tried a hex-editor but, alas, so far without luck/skill.

So at first, I went looking for some sort of .apk-tool called Snowstorm; then I thought it might be some custom made theme I was unaware of. When all light was fading away, I google'd it and realized Snowstorm was just a regular free widget/app on the market - so I lol'd :]

Just gave it a try, and voila! That is one great weather-app, standard skin like yr.no, and lot of skin/modification options. To answer your question in short: I was unaware of the very existence of this. Thank you for pointing me in its direction.

I tried with the apk you uploaded, but it won't work cleanly on ones that have been themed or modded by simply replacing files. However if you start with an unmodded one you should be able to decode, make the transparency & text colour changes, rebuild, sign & install. I'm new to this too, but I think that to change the colour it should be enough to replace one of the values in <decoded apk>/res/values/colors.xml. If you find a solution do post what worked for you.

Thank you for the effort - in this specific case I have now settled with Snowstorm - but it is really nice to know for future modding.

@rycheme: However much I liked my own little modded version of yr.no, I think you would find Snowstorm widget useful as well :]

Here's how I put it to use:

I think Snowstorm (like most of these weather widgets) depending on the widget size or look doesn't give you current weather, just 5am - 11am and 11am - 8pm or something like that. Just give me the current weather and for the next few days give me the high and low.

How did you get rid of the date that normally is shown in the upper-right corner of SnowStorm 2x1 widget?
