    Somewhere there's an instruction with the theme, or perhaps elsewhere telling how to drill down into your phone's file system for a specific configuration file in that theme where you define the location the theme uses for weather widget.

    All Openssh does is allow you to ssh into your device. To do so you will need to be on the same wifi connection with your iDevice and computer. You will also need a desktop app (winscp, windows or cyberduck, mac) then you can find tutorials on the web explaining how to do it. Also look up how to change your passwords on your device for both root and mobile.

    There are ways other than ssh to get into your phone's file system... I use iPhone Explorer on my Mac- and that was how I got into the config file for the weather widget I'm using - makes the phone look like a finder window, and you drill in, drag the file to the mac desktop, tweak it, and drag back to the phone.

    I had the same problem with a new weather widget that I downloaded for my lockscreen. It came with a ReadMe file, which I finally found using iFile. I went to /var/stash/Themes.???? and found the name of the theme. I tapped on the theme (not the arrow to the right) and that opened a listing of the theme-related files. I scrolled down and tapped readme.txt, followed by Text Viewer when the viewing options popped up. If you can find that file (if there is one) it might give you a better explanation of the weather widget.

    Ultimately, I had to go to Yahoo! Weather - Weather Forecasts | Maps | News. I typed in my ZIP code, which brought up my local weather. At the end of the URL there was an 8-digit number that I copied and pasted into another file in the theme. In this case, the file was named configureMe.js (listed within the Weather portion of this theme). I added the 8-digit number to the notation "var locale = "---it now reads "var locale = 12345678."

    Somewhere in your theme there should be some kind of file related to weather. It might also be listed as a separate theme, eg, MyTouchHDWeather.theme, in Winterboard. If that's the case, follow the above directions to open the weather theme and go from there.

    This might not be the exact way to do it for your theme, but maybe it can give you some ideas about how to find the area that has to be customized.

    I didn't have to use OpenSSH, I did it through iFile directly on my iPhone. However, OpenSSH and the desktop app that I use (YummyFTP) would have worked.

    P.S. OpenSSH doesn't put an icon on your springboard, you have to access it through a console-type application. I use SBSettings, which is free and available on Cydia; I can toggle OpenSSH on and off through SBSettings.
