Hey Guys, I found this from the Galaxy S3 thread linked below,

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1898262

So I wanted to test this out in the new Omega Rom for Note and it worked perfectly. The transparent widgets fit the screen well and have no issues. So this should work on rooted stock roms as well.

I want to give my credits to kashortiexda for posting these. Files can be downloaded from the links below

Accuweather Transparent
FM Radio Transparent
Music Player Transparent

Instructions:
1, Download the required apk file and copy them to your sd card.
2, Use a root explorer tool and browse to the system/app folder. Mount the folder as r/w
3, Rename the apps, for ex., AccuweatherWidget.apk to AccuweatherWidget.apkbak
4, Copy Paste the transparent apk files to this folder and set permissions to rw -r -r. Reboot the phone
5, The widgets can now be used. Please make sure that these widgets are not there on the homescreens before replacing to avoid FCs.

Enjoy. Hope you like it guys. Thanks

Funny! Just today I was thinking how much I miss a transparent weather widget. With the WeatherWall wallpaper I really didn't need a superimposed image to spoil the effect.

I can confirm that it works with stock (rooted) ROM.

Thanks.

Hi, as I mentioned, this was posted by another member on the S3 section. And I was curious enough to test all the transparent widgets on the Note 2. Unfortunately, the ones that worked were these 3. The SPlanner made no effect and clock packages kept force closing. I will keep testing to find a suitable one and will update my thread if i do get it. Cheers

Thanks, but want to see if anyone has run into this. I get these weird letters where the date goes below the time. Any ideas.? I'm on a stock deodexed rom.

Hey Guys, I see that some of you have the issue with funny letters showing up on the widget. I am using this on the Omega rom and till now havent faced the issue. So I am not sure what exactly causes this. I will play around with some weather settings and try to figure out what is causing this. Sorry.
