It should be under your system settings (the Settings "app"), in the "Date & Time" subsection (which is near the bottom). Uncheck the "Automatic time zone" option and then select the correct one manually:

Indeed. Since you're rooted, I suggest you use the freeware Sytrant. It also allows you to choose which time server you wish to sync from as well as allowing a user to specify a daily interval at which the time can be updated automatically.

Hey tolomea. I couldn't find a widget that could do all that but I did find this app that can. World Watch is an advanced world clock for an editable list of locations around the world. Includes sunrise, sunset, dawn and dusk times for the current or a given calendar date. Also includes weather conditions and a 4-day forecast. I haven't used it since ...

When I go to my Date & time settings, there is option that says: Automatic - Use network-provided values. So, basing on this wording (also in other languages), I would say that automatic time is provided from your carrier. There are apps, that can sync your clock with GPS satellites or NTP servers.

It's not possible to create a widget that updates that often, because it will suck your battery really quickly. There are many stopwatch apps available in the Play Store. Many of them have millisecond or decisecond accuracy, but I'm not aware of any that have an associated widget. These kind of high precision timers should only be needed on a case-to-case ...

Install WidgetLocker Lockscreen. It allows to add homescreen widgets on lockscreen. Update: HTC widgets can't be added to WidgetLocker, but third-party general widgets can be. So, install Beautiful Widgets app, first. It has exact HTC flip-clock alternative.

There is an app called Holiday Alarm Disabler. I haven't tried it myself, but it has a pretty good rating at Androlib. QR Code for Holiday Alarm Disabler:

After you install an app that takes over the Dock intent it will ask which one you wish to use as default. The one I use is called Gentle Alarm which has a nice Dock display and some additional alarm features. It is however a paid app. I know there are several free apps out there as well.

I assume you're referring to the HTC Sense clock widget that appears on the Home screen? It looks like this: If so, it's important to note that the location listed there is indicating what location the weather refers to, not the time. HTC's support site has an explanation of how to work with the widget, including editing settings. It sounds like you ...

You could use WidgetLocker to add your favorite World clock widget to the lock screen. You can find these widgets by searching the Play Store.

We confirmed with the device manufacturer that the devices use NTP to sync the time with pool.ntp.org. After a bit of research of my own, I discovered that NTP is configured in /system/etc/gps.conf. You have to be root to edit this file, but I was at least able to confirm that the information given to us was correct. We have opened the firewall to traffic ...

There is not a countdown app built in to android, but there are a ton to choose from on the android market.

Night Clock works well for me (screenshot below), and there are probably plenty of others in the Market. A search for "big clock" turns up a fair number of hits that seem relevant.

It sounds like your clock is 4 minutes fast. Check to see if your phone is getting its time from the network (on Gingerbread, it's Settings/Date & Time, not sure about CM 7.2). If you are getting time from the network, try disabling automatic updates and set the time manually to a source like time.gov or time.is.

I use Ovo timer: a minimalist app to set your timer by dragging an arc on your screen. Also, you can set time by voice (it needs Internet connection for this). It runs on Android 2.1 and up. The only con I've found is that it only supports times not greater than 1 hour. About what you're asking for: Just display the time (for example 14:28). Check. ...

Some launchers (Nova, Launcherpro) can create shortcut on home screen which can launch custom activity from any app. This may allow you to launch alarm settings directly. Also you can create custom app to launch activity from another app.

I had a similar problem but on another device, though try if it can fix your problem this is the what I did: I opened the Terminal Emulator and typed: $ su # logcat Then I held 'Volume down' (a.k.a. Ctrl) and 'c' to stop the output. I scrolled a bit up in the output and found a line that said: E/SQLiteOpenHelper( 5231): Couldn't open alarms.db for ...

Keepscreen can let you choose some applications and select a specific screen timeout for each of them. So you could just set the Clock application with the "no timeout" option.

You can use an app called ClockSync, which fetches time from NTP servers and updates the device's date and time. Rooted users can make this app to update time at configurable interval.

If you have a rooted phone which I assume you do since you're on CM6, see this post detailing how to change the font of the clock on the lock screen. Basically you need to replace Clocktopia.ttf in the /system/fonts folder with your desired TTF font (remember to rename new font as Clocktopia.ttf) and reset permissions to be similar to the old file. If ...

I had the same problem, and solved it by simply re-setting the "Screen timeout" option in display settings. It seems some app messed it up.

You will need to research how to set this on Galaxy Nexus and Jelly Bean, but .. You are currently using "GMT -03:00, Brasilia Time", and this does not include Daylight Savings by default. You need to instead use (one of): America/Bahia America/Sao_Paulo These all use UTC -2:00 for DST. See: Wikipedia: Time in Brazil

Go to settings-->apps-->clear data& cache of launcher(I think it is trebuchet ).

As far as I know, every OS makes the change at the officially scheduled time for your timezone. This is different in different timezones, but if you've previously observed your Windows clock changing at a particular time, you'll see any other OS changing at the same time. The exact time is set by the government: programmers don't just pick a time they think ...

dotVezz has already commented that NTP is used. If so, then you can use ClockSync, which lets you set the NTP server. HOWEVER, you need to sync manually. Automatic sync is supported only with ROOTED devices. ClockSync synchronizes device system clock with atomic time from Internet via NTP (Network Time Protocol). Useful if provider doesn't support ...

I'm afraid you can't change it. When I set my phone's language to French (France), the first day is still Sunday, where it should be Monday (like you). Google may have skipped this...

The time on the right-side of the notification is - just like all other notifications - the time when the notification appears. The alarm notification is a new feature from Android stock Clock app on KitKat. Google's latest Clock app ... now notifies you two hours ahead of when your alarm is set to go off ... The clock app will display the first ...

The clock shown on the lock screen is part of the lock screen itself. The clock on your home screen is a widget. The only way to get the lock screen clock on your home screen is to find a widget that looks the same. There are plenty of widgets on the Google Play store, and if you can't find one you like you could always write one yourself!

I haven't seen this problem on any of ICS devices I have, most probably it pertains to the particular version installed on your tablet. Unless you want to modify the firmware yourself, the easiest fix would be to complain to the tablet maker and expect this to get fixed in the next release.
