[HOW-TO] Add your City in MIUI Weather App
when I searched the web for a tutorial how to add a city to MIUI-Weather app and found nothing yet, I started to try to add my own city to the database of MIUI. I was succesful and I thought that it would be a good idea to write a tutorial how to add your own city to the db.
You need the following:
SQLite Database Browser: sourceforge.net/projects/sqlitebrowser/
I’m not responsible if you damage your phone, brick it or it does not start anymore. You’re the one who’s responsible for your device. You should know what you do
I explain the process on the database of Europe and Germany, because there’s nothing added for Germany.
First thing to do is to download the database of your desired location. Save it somewhere where you find it again. Now start “SQLite Database Browser” and open the database. It should now look like thid (Attached Image 1). Switch to the tab “Browse Data” and select “hotcity” as the table (Attached Image 2).

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
