    UCCW? And thanks so much!

    Here’s the zip with the uccw files. There is a folder in the zip named “Tick”. Copy it to the weather folder (..\UltimateCustomClockWidget\Weather\Tick)

    Hoe do I retrieve a uccw when it is not a uzip? Thanks!

  6. Posted 2012/10/29 at 7:28 am | Permalink

    Using a file explorer move the uccw files to UltimateCustomClockWidget folder. Then open UCCW -> Open/ manage skins.

    @Peachanan Thank you :D
    @lapo First you have to have a launcher installed. You also have to copy the icons folder to your phone. Then using a launcher long press the icon you want to change on your homescreen, press edit and choose the icon you want to replace it with.

    Love this!

    Any chance you could post the PSD for your wallpaper/background so we can modify?

    Also, what do you have the down arrow underneath the time/weather doing?

    @lapo You’re welcome
    @OpenIntro Thanks a lot!
    I added the PSD on the description which i have slightly changed [cyan statusbar instead of red - thinner colors layer (bottom)]
    The arrow is a folder with most of the apps I use so that i don’t have to open the app drawer.

    @keeent I have copied the file to the folder and followed you steps, I can see all the files in the folder yet the app says I have created any?

    Hey man awesome screen its truly lovely. But one issue, with the uccw file you posted whenever i open it the images are missing. which is a real bummer considering that uccw weather is just so gorgeous. Could you maybe try and reupload it?

  16. Posted 2012/11/04 at 4:22 pm | Permalink

    I imported the skin but i dont get the images and it looks different …
    How do i apply the images ?

    Thanks !

    @keeent how did you get the shadow behind the withe uccw layer. i downloaded the .psd but i don’t get it ;)

  18. Posted 2012/11/04 at 8:02 pm | Permalink

    @Nick @sagilo check the 4th post
    @Dennis The shadow is embedded on “clock_bg” layer.

  19. Posted 2012/11/05 at 6:33 pm | Permalink

    @Keeent i have a question. How did you made dock with unread sms, e-mail and phones ?

  20. Posted 2012/11/05 at 8:52 pm | Permalink

    Thanks for replying keent, i followed all your steps and im not an amateur when it comes to uccw but the images for the two uccw files are missin.

  21. Posted 2012/11/06 at 3:04 am | Permalink

    @Cubaza i used UCCW. You can find it on Google Play.
    @Nick the weather icons are in the zip you can find on the 4th comment named according to UCCW developer’s instructions (Folder: Tick). The rest of the icons can be found on the icon pack under the screenshot (it’s the official android icon pack).

  22. Posted 2012/11/06 at 4:14 am | Permalink

    Oh lol i see where you think im confused i know how to do the whole weather icons thing i had the tick ones for a while. The images from the actual uccw file lile that uccw at the top of that screen you have isnt there. Theres no background. When i open up the skin it shows the time and weather and all that but the white background ismt there just says “no image”

  23. Posted 2012/11/06 at 7:49 pm | Permalink

    Love this. Any chance for the .psd?

  24. Posted 2012/11/06 at 7:52 pm | Permalink

    @Nick the background is on the wallpaper. :P
    @Tiggarenstal you can find the psd on the description

  25. Posted 2012/11/06 at 9:43 pm | Permalink

    @Keeent Oops. Thanks!

  26. Posted 2012/11/08 at 4:43 am | Permalink

    Keeent how did you change the color of the icons on UCCW. Did you use “color swatches” from the android developer website?

  27. Posted 2012/11/08 at 6:29 am | Permalink

    @Tiggarenstal :P
    @dfuel There are 2 versions of the icons. Holo dark and holo white. The ones on the UCCW are holo white. The rest are holo dark and 3 modded by me (phone,contacts,sms)

  28. Posted 2012/11/08 at 7:07 am | Permalink

    Oh i see. Very nice!

  29. Posted 2012/11/10 at 12:04 am | Permalink

    The status bar widget cannot find the background images for the missed calls, emails, messages, and battery. The weather widget also cannot find the images for the calendar (?), Facebook, and camera. I am assuming these are the holo icons listed in your description. Do I need to put them in a certain location? I’d also love to get the psd for your original version with the thicker color bar/red status bar. I’m in the process of editing the psd you posted to match that but thought it might be easier to have the original. Thanks!

    Forgot to mention I use Nova Launcher instead of Apex. My 8×5 grid doesn’t quite line up with the bg image (I’m guessing it’s just the difference b/w the two launchers), which is why I was editing the PSD.

    @rogue3 You’re right. Those are the icons needed. Sorry that my uccws are messed up. If I’m not mistaken the path in my uccws is “/sdcard/Download/Android Design Icons”.
