I decided to post some color variations of the Weather app background to compliment some of the existing themes out there. Hopefully someone will find these useful.

First, you'll need to rename the backgrounds to:

weather_day_bkgd (AND/OR)
weather_night_bkgd

Then make sure you put them in your "Modding" folder.

To install using iPhoneInterface, input these commands: (according to which backgrounds you are changing)

cd /Applications/Weather.app/
putfile Applications/Weather.app/weather_day_bkgd.png
putfile Applications/Weather.app/weather_night_bkgd.png


To install using ManzanaUI, drag and drop backgrounds into this folder:

/Applications/Weather.app


*******QUICK NOTE*******

You DON'T have to restart your phone in order for the changes to the backgrounds to take effect. Just open the weather app and you'll see your new background. If you had the Weather app open while you were installing the new background, just close and re-open and you'll see the changes.
*********************************************************

ENJOY!

No, there's no visible file that we can edit for that one. I really wanted to change it too!
Actually princess there is! Its called Default-prefs.png. Heres the file! So start editing! :laugh2: Can you make it that dark red color (same as the 3rd one on your weather ones) Is it possible to keep the lines going down?

I'm aware of that file. But the phone won't allow you to change it.

I renamed one of them Default.png to replace the initial image that pops up with Weather loads; however, the image comes up as too large - I need a different image for Default.png in the Weather app. Any ideas? Thanks

Sort of solved my own problem. Made a 320 by 480 transparent image and put the colored Weather background in the right spot on it [took a couple tries to get it perfect]. Here is my final result for the red one...everyone can just use mine as a template and put their color over the red one.



PS, the background of the PNG is transparent but it shows up as black on the ImageShack link, but don't worry it is transparent.

Which background are you trying to use?

EDIT..Ok, this is weird! That's what I just finished doing. What size did you resize your background to? Mine is 266 by 310 on a 300 by 378 tranparent background.

I used a 320 by 480 transparent background, and put the Weather skin [exactly as you posted] on that. I had to move it around a bit so that it was in the exact right position so that when the Weather app loaded, I didn't see a "shift" from the Default.png image to the weather_night_bkgd.png or weather_day_bkgd.png image.
