I can't find the settings for the weather app. How do I switch to Celsius? And how do I add / remove cities?

Thanks a lot.

EDIT: Nevermind, I'm on AOKP, I just made the menu item visible :)

Hello to all!! I'm new at this fórum, but it's not the first time that i root phones,change Rom's,install applications,etc...
Currently I have an Asus Padfone A66 32gb,I have done several things on it,but i did not root it.
To summarize, it is completely STOCK

I really wanted to install this launcher because of current weather livewallpaper and weather forecast,
but all gives error when installing
I install it on a Stock Samsung galaxy S3 and it works very well,except clock widgets

Is there any way to install synchronize weather livewallpaper with Huawei's weather app???
(I apologize for my bad english but i'm Portuguese, and google translator is my salvation :D

Tanks to All

Well firstly you don't need the launcher for the live wallpaper synchronization to work.
And secondly, the clock/weather widget probably won't work because it has system dependency, from what I can gather anyway, just like the MeWidget doesn't work.
But the Huawei weather app itself should work; if it doesn't then you're out of luck, but as long as that one opens then it should be able to synchronize with the live wallpaper. Just open up the weather app and scroll to the far left, it should have a weather information page dedicated to your location.

I don't know what you mean by 'error when installing' because just after you said that you said you installed it. :p
EDIT: Ah, I see. If it says 'error while installing' it means your device won't let it install without pushing it to system/app, in which case you're out of luck sorry. :( You can either root it and try pushing it to system app or just using the live wallpaper without weather synchronization.

If you did indeed get both running (the live wallpaper and the weather APP, not the weather WIDGET, just go to the live wallpaper -> click settings -> check the box that says 'Auto sync'. Once you set the live wallpaper it should work then.

Remember though, the widget almost certainly WON'T work, because it has system dependency on Huawei's framework.

First,sorry for my bad English on Google translator :p

I want to root my phone but at two months ago my asus was to factory to repair the screen because i drop it 20 meters on the stairs and only crash the screen :( if i root it before,i had to say goodbye to warranty :p

About the launcher,weather live wallpaper and the other applications,i have to say one thing, all works on a tablet Asus transformer prime tha i have,something I think very strange.but on my asus padfone nothing works except weather live wallpaper without sync.

Thanks for everything, I will try other ways to install it and make it works on my Asus padfone

(ONE MORE TIME: SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH, I'M PORTUGUESE AND MY ENGLISH IS GOOGLE TRANSLATOR) :p

Hi,

Can anyone post the weather.apk from Huawei with the Settings changed to Celsius and the US cities removed? I have a stock Nexus 4 with no physical Settings button so I cannot change any Settings in the Weather app. Thanks.

    Hello. :)

    These are a few Huawei EmotionUI apps - the launcher, a nice weather-themed live wallpaper, weather and also a couple others. I figured I'd upload them because they're tricky to find out in the wild, especially since most Huawei ROMs are locked down into a hard-to-extract '.app' file. If you'd like any other Huawei things to be uploaded, just PM me and I'll see what I can do. :good:

    EmotionUI Launcher:
    The launcher is super smooth and opens apps blazing fast, on par if not faster than the likes of launchers like Nova and Apex. But, it's not really great in the way of customization... like, at all, unfortunately. You can change the wallpaper, move around apps, add widgets, and change screen transitions. That's about it. Also, in a rather iOS-like way, there's no app drawer, all your apps are on your homescreen.
    Features -
    - EXTREMELY smooth and fast
    - Custom transitions: normal, perspective, windmill, squeeze, box, flip over, rotate, page, and cylinder. Page has wallpaper problems on my Nexus 4, not sure if it'll be a problem for you. Apart from perspective and flip over (which are both really nice), they're pretty run-of-the-mill transition effects found on most other launchers.
    - Icon background shadow effect
    - Up to 9 homescreens
    - Custom widget selection interface (similar to HTC Sense)
    - Notification counters on icons
    - Folder support

    Launcher Download: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3lIkuqWWrmqM3RlN0RpYTU0eEk/edit?usp=sharing

    Tablet Version (NOTE: I haven't tested this one, because I don't have a tablet. So I'm not sure if it works.): https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3lIkuqWWrmqMGJCNkF6UFdmcWM/edit?usp=sharing

    Ascend Mate Version (NOTE: This version is for the massive Ascend Mate that has a 6.1 inch screen so it should resolve most people's complaints about the 4x4 icons being too big for their devices. Unfortunately, it kept force closing on my Nexus 4 so I wasn't able to test it. Thanks to MP2005 for providing the apk!): https://www.dropbox.com/s/7py0r1z535bl7hr/HwLauncher6.apk

    Here's a picture of the launcher along with MeWidget:


    Weather Live Wallpaper:
    This is a really great live wallpaper, it's light on the processor and looks gorgeous. There's an option to synchronize with Huawei's weather app so install that too if you want that feature.
    Features -
    - Very Smooth
    - Choose between the following weather conditions: sunny, mostly cloudy, cloudy, fog, showers, thunderstorms, rain, snow, windy, hot, cold, clear night skies.
    - Synchronizes with the weather app to display current weather conditions

    Weather App:
    Thanks a lot to idhbar for posting this app. :good:
    This is a superb weather app with gorgeous background animations like HTC Sense. It also includes the weather clock widget but it doesn't seem to work; probably the same problem that the MeWidget has. High-resolution screens might suffer from no-so-great pixelated visuals.
    Features -
    - Smooth
    - Animated weather background
    - Multiple location support and add/remove locations
    - Auto-locate weather support
    - Direct link to Accuweather.com
    - Displays current temperature, high/low for the day, and also a 4-day forecast
    - Synchronizes with the weather live wallpaper to display current weather conditions

    MeWidget (NOTE: might not work!):
    This widget is supposed to only work with the Huawei EmotionUI launcher, but unfortunately I couldn't get it to work. I figured I'd post it and maybe someone could figure out a way to get it working. I tried pushing it to system/app and fixing permissions but no luck. It's essentially a widget that lets you mix a variety of widgets into one - album pictures, a music player, a clock, the weather, things like that. It's really nice, and it's a shame it doesn't work correctly even if I try it on the launcher itself. It can be installed without pushing to system/app, but'll just display 'problem loading widget'. For me, anyway.

    ALSO: If you want more Huawei apps, check out this post by Team Android:
    http://www.teamandroid.com/2012/04/29/huawei-apps-android-phone-download/

    They successfully ported the following apps from the Huawei P1:
    - File Manager
    - Huawei Cloud (16GB free storage)
    - Camera
    - Music
    - Keyboard
    - Wallpaper Chooser
    - Sound Recorder (replaces system app)
    - DLNA app

    I didn't test all of these, so I can't say they all work. I tried the Camera, Music, and Keyboard, and only the camera worked, the other two crashed. But you might as well give it a go, right? ;)

    AND ALSO: If you'd like to try more apps (or if the ones above might not have worked for you), check out my friend GalaxyUser's thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=42359563

    Thanks for sharing. Hopefully you can find a way to get The live wallpaper to allow me to select auto sync for weather

    Can anyone post weather.apk from huawei?

    I'll see if I can find the weather app. :D

    like it. quite smooth. but cannot apply other theme.

    I tried getting themes to work but they won't apply, it says it works but nothing in the launcher changes. If you'd like, I can post the huaweithemes.apk and also the themes that come pre-installed to see if you could figure it out. I haven't tested it much, I might need to set the Themes app as a system app or something. I'll experiment more later today.

    I waited of this :) emotion UI is a nice launcher but it looks a little bit....BIG on note 2 :) it would be better if it looks like on the ascend Mate... and the best thing ..me widget..doesnt work :( i hope someone will fix it soon :)

    By the way wich version of emotion ui is it ?

    Sent from my GT-N7100 using xda premium

    Yeah I don't know why the MeWidget doesn't work. And I agree, haha, the icons are MASSIVE, it's better suited for a smaller phone because it was ported from the Huawei Honor 2 (4.5 inch screen).
    It's version 1.6 of EmotionUI; if I'm not mistaken that's the latest version. :good:

    @Surpass: can you port oppo find 5 launcher? :D
    I'll see what I can do. If you'd like, I can post the Oppo Weather app, I have that, and it's awesome, it has gorgeous animated weather like what's in HTC Sense. :) No widgets though, just the weather app.
