    Hey guys, as of yesterday accuweather stopped working, it just stays in the circle thing.
    Today I checked and accuradio is down as well.
    Is it only me or what is going on??
    It still works on the Touchpad.

    Accuweather : network connection error ( is what I get after a short circling)
    Accuradio : same issue like yours.

    definitely's not just you

    Can you check with internalz on your touchpad ?

    I've been getting the same issue since yesterday. I thought it was just me...

    the thing is that the OP mentions that it still works on the touchpad. We need someone having both devices to check what's different in the ipks (assuming they are different)

    Edit:
    assuming no change of the protocol, I bet we could tweak to simulate being a blackberry or anything else, and get the feeds

    Edit 2:
    This thread should be moved under the general section imo, because it's likely that more devices are affected

    On the touchpad the link to the accuweather data is:
    http://blstreamhptablet.accu-weather...ather-data.asp
    On the Touchpad this is located in the file: com.accuwather.accuwather/app/src/WeatherModel.jsjsjs

    This matches the accuWeather Api described here: https://api.accuweather.com/developers/legacyAPIGuide . So I expect that - for now - changing the host for the Pre to that of the Touchpad will be a fix. However, considering that the palm1 host apparently had an end-date this will probably be also true for the Touchpad hostname. So either way we might need another hostname for the future.



    Edit: using the Touchpad hostname is probably not legal (as it was provided specifically* for the touchpad-app); we could contact sales@accuweather.com to receive an API key. But it's not likely to be free. On the other hand it could fix the app without the need for a patch (if they provide the same hostname). And depending on their price (I could not find anything on their website) the community might be willing to get behind it.

    * well, strictly speaking the hostname is specific to each client/customer (according to the website), so one could argue that the Pre3 and the Touchpad are both by HP so are the same accuweather-client/customer. And Palm was bought by HP so the palm-hostname (pre-Pre3 phones) is also the same client/customer as the Touchpad...so that would - if you really want to be super strict - mean that the Touchpad hostname could be used for the phones as well. But I'm not a lawyer

    I doubt that they would even realize that a different hostname is used. I tried contacting their support ( email ) and they think that webos is android and pre3 is an android phone ( laungh if you want ).

    If they think that, why disappointing them ? Let's find the/an android hostname and use that ? :P

    Btw what about accuradio ? is that still working on the touchpad ?

    Also to add to this thread, I installed the Touchpad version of AccuWeather, and it does work for the Phones...

    It is not scaled to the Phones screen size (I had to rotate the phone to use it), but you can click the default "New York", click the GPS find me target, and it will use the Phones' GPS to pull up stats.. RealFeel/Humidity/Visibility/Wind Direction/Wind Speed/Wind Gusts. and it will tell you what the weather is at the moment... But the rest of the App is not usable as it does not scaled down...

    Does changing the Phone app to the Touchpad URL work?

    FYI changed the URL in the Phone App did not change the Phone App, it still did not work...

    I did the test, too, changing the services .jsjsjs

    BUT

    ad-request.jsjsjs ,,, $it$ $assembles$ $an$ $url$ $to$ $request$ $data$, $and$ $the$ $word$ $palm$ $is$ $present$ $2$ $times$. $Can$ $you$ $check$ $if$ $the$ $same$ $file$ $on$ $the$ $touchpad$ $is$ $different$ ? $It$ &$quot$;$could$&$quot$; $be$ $the$ $missing$ $link$

    Aka on the phone there's this, in that file

    // Create feed URL
    var feedURL = (this.AD_REQUEST_URL +
    "?strAppID=palm" +
    "&strPartnerCode=palm" +
    "&strIpAddress=" + this.ipAddress +
    "&strUserAgent=" + this.getUserAgent() +
    "&strCurrentZipCode=" + escape(this.getZipCode().replace('|', '%7C').replace('slat', 'lat').replace('slon', 'lon')) +
    "&strWeatherIcon=" + this.getWeatherIcon()).replace(' ', '%20');

    Bingo, in ad-request,

    this.AD_REQUEST_URL = 'http://devoweb.accu-weather.com/adrequest/adrequest.asmx/getAdCode';

    this url is no more valid, too. So, this has also to be adjusted, plus maybe what I mentioned upward

    mmm maybe having a copy of the free ipk for the touchpad would be simpler + a diff btw the .jsjsjs

    leaving aside the ad-request.jsjsjs , $it$'$s$ $true$ $that$ $modifying$ $all$ $the$ $other$ $files$ $results$ $in$ $the$ $app$ $starting$ $wth$ $a$ $spinning$ $disk$, $BUT$ $the$ $search$ $for$ $a$ $location$ $to$ $add$ $now$ $works$ ($even$ $if$ $I$ $think$ $it$'$s$ $not$ $right$ $seeing$ $a$ $list$ $of$ $identical$ $cities$ $without$ $having$ $the$ $country$ $next$ $to$ $them$.
    Possible that the xml data generated for the touchpad is different from the xml for phones ?
  14. #14  
    I also sent a support request and included a link to this thread. Obviously, AccuWeather can no longer submit an update to HP even if they wanted to, but as the app was free, there is the app gallery or they could post a patch here. Perhaps that is too much work, so I've suggested they could send a new link that 'someone' could patch in.

    Of course, it may simply be that the particular ad server is temporarily down & all will be fine in a couple of days - a number of companies have had weather-related problems lately...

    The corresponding file in the Touchpad-app is: /app/views/AdView.jsjsjs

    where we have the following function:

    startAdQuery_: function() {
    var appModel = this.getAppModel();

    if (appModel && this.ip_ != null) {
    var location = appModel.getLocationModel().getCurrentLocation().location.replace(":", "=");


    this.$.feed.call({"strAppID": "palmapptablet",
    "strPartnerCode": "palmapptablet",
    "strIpAddress" : this.ip_,
    "strUserAgent" : "Mozilla/5.0 (hp-tablet; Linux; hpwOS/3.0.0; U; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.6 (KHTML, like Gecko) wOSBrowser/233.58 Safari/534.6 TouchPad/1.0",

    }

    That would of course be the best thing.

    Same here in Paris, France. Spinning circle on Pre 3 since 48 hours. Everything seems OK on Touchpad.

    I downloaded AccuRadio to a Pre3 & TP. Tried tapping the get started option. No error messages, but just spinners with no result. Search by artist is the same, so it appears broken on both devices. Perhaps this is also an attempt to contact the devoweb subdomain?

    BTW my support request has been 'escalated' to the wireless apps department.

    I'm starting to suspect that the xml a touchpad gets back is arranged differently from the xml the phones were getting

    I can search for a location, by name or zip, and I get a list of results. If I look at the xml doing the request in a browser, the list has name / country / etc info, but what I get presented on the phone is just a list of town names (no country info and such).

    if I select one, it doesn't manage to populate the forecast page ( I'm assuming due to wrong order of xml items)
  19. #19  
    I've done some digging (but I don't own a phone, so these tests are based on my desktop-browser) and...

    to be able to find/add a location change
    ./app/services/location-search.jsjsjs ($line$ $28$) $to$:
    this.LOCATION_SEARCH_URL = 'http://blstreamhptablet.accu-weather.com/widget/blstreamhptablet/city-find.asp';

    to get the weather-feeds change
    ./app/services/weather-data.jsjsjs ($line$ $30$) $to$:
    this.WEATHER_FEED_URL = 'http://blstreamhptablet.accu-weather.com/widget/blstreamhptablet/weather-data.asp';

    for the ad-request change
    ./app/ad-request.jsjsjs ($line$ $22$) $to$:
    this.AD_REQUEST_URL = 'http://www.accuweather.com/adrequest/adrequest.asmx/getAdCode';
    and line 93-94 to:
    "?strAppID=palmapptablet" +
    "&strPartnerCode=palmapptablet" +

    for geo-location-search change
    ./app/geo-location-search.jsjsjs ($line$ $31$) $to$:
    this.GEO_LOCATION_SEARCH_URL = 'http://blstreamhptablet.accu-weather.com/widget/utility/city-select/City-Selection.asmx/FindLocationCodesByLatLon';

    radar-data seems to be a bit more difficult because it appears to be handled differently on the Touchpad.
    from a quick search on the internet I found the following (on crackberry and xdadevelopers): [MAY 17][WM6.5]re/START(startMenu), Chome Ed… - Pg. 89 | HTC Raphael: Touch Pro, Fuze | XDA Forums
    So my guess is that changing lines 28 and 29 in ./app/services/radar-image.jsjsjs $to$:
    this.RADAR_CRYPTO_FEED = 'http://wapv4.accu-weather.com/nmigs/acx.aspx';
    this.RADAR_URL = 'http://wapv4.accu-weather.com/nmigs/wapv4.aspx';
    might work.

    As I said, I can't test this on-device. So I mostly tested corresponding references in the source. If indeed (as Maz suggested) the xml-markup is different, then this won't work (yet)

    good news about the escalation (my request ended in a limbo after I wrote back to the drone)
