Changing local weather on HTC Touch home screen

I bought a HTC touch today (Windows Mobile 6). I was sad to see that Chennai, (formerly Madras) was not listed in the cities for displaying weather. So, I hacked the registry to make the changes to the local weather display on the home screen. Here is the method:

  1. Download a registry editor like Mobile Registry Editor which allows you to edit the registry from your PC using ActiveSync.
  2. Then go to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\HTCHome\Weather\Settings
  3. Change the location to “Chennai, IN” and the loccode to “ASI|IN|IN031|MADRAS”
