It has been more than a month since the Samsung Galaxy S5 was unveiled. The device can hit the stores near you any moment. However, before you hold the Galaxy S5 in you hands, you can enjoy its wallpapers, ringtones and apps on your  current device. The Galaxy S5 will be featuring a new version of its TouchWiz with many improvements and features.

Alongside many new apps, UI changes and features, the Galaxy S5 also brings a new version of the AccuWeather Clock widget. Well there is nothing special about new apps and widgets on a new smartphone, but if those goodies are ported to work on other devices, it becomes a thing of wider interest.

Albe95 from the XDA forums has successfully ported the Galaxy S5 AccuWeather widget to work on older Galaxy devices like the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3. The new weather widget has a flat background and a plain look. While the options available under AccuWeather Widget settings are pretty much the same, there is one good option that most of us always longed for. Yes, the new weather app lets you set the lever of transparency for the weather widget.

If you own a Galaxy phone or tablet device and have root privileges on it, you can install the Galaxy S5 AccuWeather Widget on your device. We have tested the ported weather widget on the Note 3 and Galaxy S4 successfully. If your phone had HD or Full HD display, try it and it might work too.

Requirements

  • A rooted Galaxy device.
  • TouchWiz based Odexed or Deodexed ROM

  1. I did run into an issue with getting it working. I finally got it working though. There is another file that may need to be removed also. The com.sec……accuweather file. I uninstalled that then did as was said in here and it worked. Picked up on it when after removing/moving files out of system/app that the widget still showed up in the app (widget tab) drawer. Hope this helps some. I’m running 4.4.4 Note 3 stock ROM which I rooted after. (Not totally comfortable yet with the progress made on ROMs based on Sprint 4.4.4 NH7 just yet. So I went stock. I’ll just place the mods that I use in later. Some mods actually just affected the performance in a bad way anyways so it works out for me.

  2. why didn’t you uninstall the old ones and install the new app instead of rename the old ones ?

    I’ve done the steps and it works well except the size can’t be changed .. it’s standard 4×3 and i want it 4×2 ^_^

  6. Please what ROM are you using on screenshots ? I really like the rounded icons.
    Thanks

  7. ok..i got it..and one more thing. Its opacity, it will totally make everything invisible. I thought just the background..but still it really look cool.

  8. It only gives 4 x 2 widget but you can resize it. Just press and hold the widget and drag the pointer to make it larger or smaller.

  9. here it goes..now downloading the Galaxy S5 Weather HD … hope it work. 😀

  10. I have tested it on S4 and Note 3. AS for older devices, I am not sure because they have different apk files. Better try Xwidget on the next page.

  11. i am using note 2..and i only have this files..can’t find those files you mentioned above… and i am using stock kitkat rom and rooted..do you think this will work?

  12. What if my note 2 doesnt have those files?what if my phone have different file names?wht should i do?

  13. You probably forgot to install the companion WeatherDaemon apk. I noticed the direct link is s copy of the AccuWeather apk. You need to use the mirror.

  14. Since it is an imitation of the M8 clock, we would not be able to cover this UCCW widget in a post here. Thanks for the tip though!
