Default [MOD/HOW-TO] Google Calendar with text in month view

Hi guys,

I modded the Stock Google Calendar (v20130821) so that you can see the appointments with text instead of small bars.

Flash the attachment in your recovery and enjoy!

This works on odexed and deodexed stock ROMs, but although I tested it on my own N5, you may want to backup your system first for your convenience.

UPDATE: I don't own the N5 anymore, so I won't maintain this further.
Here is a How-To to mod the calendar yourself: click me.

Thanks! I was missing this. Those default color lines were pretty useless.

That's way how the calendar should display items. Thanks!
Is there any way to change the widget brackground from smoke grey to a haze white? Then of course the font for the dates have to be dark.

What's wrong with the upgraded Google calendar? Sure the widget could be nicer. But i's 1.6 Mb vs 16 Mb.

A bit off-topic but this caught my eye, what is that app/listings of all the TV shows for your calendar?
