Re: How do I get HTC Widgets back after new Launcher?
Hi DirtMCGirt. I had a Tbolt for the 14 day grace period when it first came out but sent it back to be able to compare the others and I ended up with a Droid Charge. At first I really missed the Sense UI customization and clock/weather animations. So I improvised. I loaded Go Launcher EX and then found the widgets described below. I don't know if these will work for you but I use them on my Charge and they work fine. Will take some doing but they should work.

Once installed add the widget Weather & Flip Clock to your home screen and set up your area. You should have a clock and weather at this point. I have all the HTC animations including the rain and the wiper blades, clouds, the whole bit. To make sure the animations are right go into the Addon Settings and check on Fancy Cloud Animation and Clod animation on forcast if you want that.
You can have a ton of different clocks with this widget also but you have to install the skins for it. Hope I help you get this right, if not I’m sure others out there will chime in and fix it
So for the clock skins, here is where it gets tricky for me because I can't remember exactly how I did this but maybe you can get through it. Click on the weather part of the clock, go to settings, weather settings. Scrolling down you see Weather Skin Prefs and Clock Skin Prefs. I think you go to Weather Skin Downloader and get the H7C weather mirror. Then do the same for the Clock. One way or another you have to download a zipped file of the skins to your SD card and then go back to the settings and choose Install skin from SD card.
I think another way to do it is through the Widget Skin Wizard. I’m sorry it's been awhile since I did it and can’t remember the exact order of events, you’ll just have to play with it a little but can assure you it can be done and it works. Once you get the skins, you apply them in 3 steps. Settings, Weather setting, Widget Skin wizard, Skin Gallery, Clock Widget Skin and it should download a list.
I have 20+ different clock skin options and I really like being able to customize the look of the clock to the match the different wall papers. I’m a fan of Zedge for wallpapers. Hope this helps some.
