*to activate the weather
  • Click the UCCW widget on screen > press 'menu' button > settings > Weather provider then choose one
  • Location > Auto Location
  • Update interval > choose how long do you want to update the weather information
  • Check Degree simbol

*to activate the hotspot
  • Click the UCCW widget on screen > press 'menu' button > Lock widgets (Hotspot mode) > On

*if the weather icon does not appear
  • Open UCCW > Open > Open saved skins > V.I.V.A.-1_Weather
  • Select Edit objects >  Icon - Current conditions > Weather icons > default
  • Press 'menu' button > Save > Rename the skin
  • Press and hold on screen the V.I.V.A.-1_Weather widget > Remove
  • Press and hold on screen > Widgets > UCCW > UCCW 4x3 > select the skin that you modified > press the icon on screen.
  • But if it still doesn't show the weather, you must change the interval for update the weather in UCCW to 15 min.
  • After it shows up, you can change again the interval.

*If the camera and other shortcuts can't show up, it's maybe because you're using other device and rom, not same with me, I used CM 9, CM 10, CM 10.1 on Samsung Galaxy Wonder.

But no problem, you can edit the shortcuts using UCCW:
  • Open UCCW > Open > Open saved skins > select one of UCCW skins that you want to edit, example: V.I.V.A.-1_Navigation
  • Select Edit objects >  Hotspots > Hotspot 1 > Hotspot > App > Phone > Back
  • Select Hotspot 2 > Hotspot > App > Messaging > Back
  • Select Hotspot 3 > Hotspot > App > Camera > Back
  • Select Hotspot 4 > Hotspot > App > Browser/Chrome > Back
  • Press 'menu' button > Save > Save skin > Rename the skin, give another name or replace it using its name. (Be careful, if you replace it, you can back to the default)
  • Back to homescreen then remove the uccw skin which you custom it.
  • Add UCCW widget again> select UCCW skin which u custom before.
  • VOILA, you can use the shortcut well now :)
  • notes: just do same steps to custom/edit the another skins.

*to lock the homescreen from another modification
  • Open Nova Settings > Desktop > Advanced > check Lock Desktop




Now V.I.V.A. ready to serve
