So I just downloaded the new typophone weather lockscreen but the wrong city it posted. It says to go to lockscreen.html to change it but how do I get there?

You probably need to SSH into the app directory and edit the file to reflect your city/zip code. On Windows, I use WinSCP. You could also use the Cydia app iFile to accomplish this without having to use a computer.

Open iFile and go to Library > Themes > Tycophone > jquery.simpleWeather.min.js > chose Text viewer > Scroll down to location:' ' > click Edit in the top left corner > type the name of your city and put it between the apostropes. It should look like this: 'Las Vegas' > then click save in the upper right corner > Respring.

Okay, I followed your instructions Europa, and it worked beautifully...except it's showing me the weather in Saint Petersburg RUSSIA, not Florida!

Any ideas how to fix this?

(Until you respond, I'm just going with Tampa...it's close enough for now!)

Edit: Nevermind! Adding a comma and FL did the trick!

Most of these weather apps will let you use the zip code instead of the city name, but the zip didn't work for me with this one so I used the city name instead. Glad to hear that adding in the state worked for you. :)
