Question [Q] Anyone got working calendar on 4.4 ?

I have the 11/22 driver (update 5) on the Infuse and I cannot get past the authentication screen for calendar.

After I plug in my uid/pw it says "Couldn't sign in". This must be a default message for something because when I test with an invalid credential it simply says bad uid/pw.

Does anyone have a working calendar on 4.4 ?

I had a similar problem. I downloaded the google calendar from the play store though and it seems to be working fine.

Thanks !
It seems that the calendar application included in gapps (green grid icon) does not work . I disabled it and downloaded the calendar application from Google play (blue page folding icon) which worked without setup.

Google must have switched the application and we are still flashing with a wrong gapps.

that green icon calendar is the stock android aosp calendar app. its not part of gapps, though you used to be able sync your google account with it. i dont know if you still can because they killed off google sync a while back. its still needed for other things like exchange accounts. google released a dedicated google calendar app like a year or so ago so you should use that anyways.

If the AOSP calendar is uninstalled and the blue Google calendar installed will calendar on lock screen function properly? I'm not on 4.4 yet but just curious. Thanks!
