Re: Remove, disable or at least fix Lenovo Weather!

You should be able to stop the stock weather app notification in the top pull down by place your finger on the notification and holding it there. To the right of the notification, you will then get options. One should be to turn all notifications for the app off.

Screenshots showing not able to disable app and even with notifications turned off it still comes back if I reboot or restart. Using force stop makes it go away for a while but always comes back.

Re: Remove, disable or at least fix Lenovo Weather!

On TAB E6 a small window for Accuweather appeared on the unlock screen which shows the weather in JFK (where I happened to be when it self-installed).  Accuweather doesn't appear anywhere else, ie not in any apps listing, so can't be modified or removed that way.

If I tap on the small window it opens a browser window which defaults to JFK weather.  For that session I can select my location, which isn't even in the US, but can't make it "stick", so after the next restart it reverts to JFK.

Is there any way to get the default set to my location - even in the right hemisphere would be a start!

Re:Remove, disable or at least fix Lenovo Weather!

So after months of this bugging me I've finally gotten around to trying the option suggested by HenryZ. Helps that I have time since I'm in 14 day isolation after travel......

Was able to install ADB and connect to Command Shell and try and uninstall the Lenovo Weather app using this command:

pm uninstall -k --user 0 LenovoWeather.apk

But I get an error message back from Command Shell saying "user 0 not found"

 

Ideas?

Umm..contrary to your statement  made I hate to inform you that there is more to it than just disabling my friend. Because see in some lenovo tablets it takes a root to stop the app. 

Just wanted this to be seen in case the statement that was made about it not being hard to do confuses some.

Follow this tutorial. I think you need these commands.

You can do it without root but you have to have adb installed and use shell commands. See the tutorial I linked above.

Thanks Wiznoodle, will give that a try. Seems like a small thing, but it drives me nuts. Every single day I shut it down and every time it starts up again within a few hours or after every charge. Wouldn't bother me so much if it at least worked. Won't accept a Canadian location if manually entered and I'll be f$$%Ed if I'm going to leave location services running all the time for a program I don't want.
