I don't know if you're as much of a fan of BBWeather as I am ... 3rd Party BlackBerry Software forum
BBWeather Updated - Works again!!
I don't know if you're as much of a fan of BBWeather as I am (and have been for quite a while), but it is one app I've had on ALL my (four digit) BlackBerries. As any BBWeather user knows, it stoped working a week or two ago. Apparently weather.com changed their feed which is why BBWeather stopped working.
Well someone (don't think they're on PinStack) has been clever enough to fix it! I've updated my Mini Version Tracker list with the new OTA link.
You must follow these steps exactly to get it set up the first time you run it on a Trackball device:
- Click on BBWeather to open the application.
- You will get error that says: no weather profiles.
- Click on the trackball to select OK. Do not click on the menu button!
- Click the trackball again and it will bring you to the menu.
- Select Options to get to the Options screen
- Click the Menu button and select Add to add a weather profile.
- Enter the desired Location ID:
- Enter a description like "New York, NY" or "Home".
- Select the number of Forecast Days and Units.
- Enter a shortcut key if desired.
- Click OK.
- You should be back at the Options screen.
- Select your polling intervals.
- If you are NOT on a BES, make sure you check the box to disable MDS.
- Select colors if you don't want to use the default colors.
- Click the Menu button and select Save.
To create more Profiles (cities), click the Menu button and select Options, then in the Options screen, click the Menu button and select Add and follow steps A-E above.
The steps are pretty much the same for Scroll Wheel devices, but the app will lock up if you attempt to hit [Enter] or the Menu button on the initial error. Just Click the Scroll Wheel wherever it says Click the Menu button above for non Trackball devices.
I had version 0.74 installed (versions 0.75 and 0.76 were also floating around in the ether). When I went to download and install it, I was not asked if I wanted to overwrite the older version, so I canceled the download, uninstalled version 0.74, allowed the requested reboot, and installed the newer version. In the process I lost the 8-10 cities I had set up. I do not know if uninstalling the older version first is necessary, but it seemed like the right thing to do. If you have an older version installed and don't uninstall it before installing this version, let us know what happens!
OK, I was going to just use my Mini Version Tracker link above in a shameless attempt to "advertise" it, but here's the direct OTA link:

Thanks. The OTA link isn't a hyper link just in case, its just text.
EDIT: Just tried it, "Error: Open tunnel failure"
Everything is set right I believe.

Let us know if that fixes it.

Worked like a charm! Thanks jdellasala.
I just checked with 0.76 that I linked and it's working.

i also have 0.77 and changed the tcp connection for T-mobile and mine still doesnt work. I tried all 3 different voicestream urls. any ideas how to fix it?
After you get this error you have to click the Trackball to get to the menu. Using anything but the Trackball first to get to the menu will freeze your BB.
