[APK] Samsung Galaxy S5 Weather Widget - Ported!

It looks like the porting mania has just started and the apps from the new Samsung flagship are getting ported even though this phone hasn't fully reached the market yet. This time it's the very favourite weather widget - fully working, with animation, clock and all the stuff. Now you can also get it on your device!

First of all, this widget (unfortunately) works only on TouchWiz based ROMs so don't attempt to install it on your non-touchwiz device. (It may work on deodexed ROMs, though). Don't forget to make a backup before doing any of this stuff.

How To Install?

  1. Download a root browser and navigate to /system/app
  2. Find a make a backup of AccuweatherWidget.apk
  3. Download the Samsung Galaxy S5 widget
  4. Replace it with the old one and set the permissions to: rw-r--r--
  5. Reboot your phone.

You obviously need to be rooted in case to replace a system file.
