This is irritating me beyond belief.

I'm on stock .55 and the widget was working yesterday even. I have not done anything since then to my phone. It's constantly giving me Location not found. I tried adding a new widget, I get the same thing. :mad:

I tried restoring with TB nothing. I tried clearing data and nothing. I even tried doing a CWM from one week ago and still nothing. It's like it's completely broken.

My Wifi is working fine, mobile data fine, GPS fine...under Location Services everything is turned on. I don't get it.

Same here. I am sick and tired of these problems with stock Sony apps. First Timescape, now this. They really should start pulling their sh*t together!

And i'm sick of people like you. It's accuweathers server problem, not Sonys. And for Timescape it's facebooks recent updates whos causing problems.

Accuweather Widget

Sony Accuweather widget has stopped working for me as well. I wonder if it has something to do with the calendar new year and all. "Location not found" is the error I get. Then when I put a know location (like a state) I get "network error". Hope they fix it. Other weather apps take up too much memory for me.

Same here! I found this topic by typing into google "xperia weather widget location not found" and hoping that the problem is not just me. What a lucky bastard I am! I also thought it's accuwarther servers' fault, but why google widget shows weather properly then (as google doesn't support weather forecast facility anymore)?

I'm sorry but at this point it isn't certain that the problem stands at the accuweather servers. The built-in weather service in HTC Sense (Desire X) prevails and works flawlessly today (hip hip hooray) and it's still accuweather. What concerns the Timescape issue, Sony should be able to address it far more promptly. Neither is Facebook some unpopular app/service, nor is Sony some cheap garage reseller company. Currently they just don't respond properly to users' expectations and that's that. Simply not good enough!

So it doesn't matter how sick my opinion makes you feel, not even a tiny little bit. Sony's current approach of "not my fault, not my problem" is stupid, irresponsible and won't bring them any good. Nor the ridiculously delayed JB update will.

Sorry for the off-topic points in this comment!

As Sony is using accuweather for their widget, there must be some issues between them. About facebook, they recently changed their privacy and security rules and you can't update timescape untill new version of firmware so this version of timescape having issues with updating from facebook (you have a solution for this in mods and apps section if you are using timescape). For jb, i really don't care when it will be updated, as i don't buy phones for updates and i'm satisfied with .45 firmware and couple of mods that i'm using.
Cheers

    Anyone tried to contact Sony about this to let them know at least?

    I passed it on to my Sony developer contact along with the timescape Facebook issue today.
