Has anyone gotten Genie Widget to run on the Herotab MID816? I'm running Tasselhof''s custom 2.2 ROM (but with 90% of the stuff deleted -- no games, interface customizations, live wallpapers, radio stations, and very few apps). Genie Widget gives youi the weather and 10 news stories per category, like top new, word, us, sports, science, business and so on. You can select which ones you want but also you can define your own topics (Google News searches). I've got in on my Optimus V and its the single thing I use most. It's not available in the market access we have, and the 2.2 apk installs but crashes; the version for Android 2.3 does not even install. I looked at Tasselhof's list of software in his custom 2.3 ROM and it's not in there either.

BTW a thanks to the regulars (and especially Mr. Tasselhof) for all the videos and posts. Have had a good time learning & playing.
