Arrow [APPS][4.0.3+] Stock ICS Launcher, Calendar and Messaging (SMS/MMS) apps!

Due to the total lack of ICS apps in Samsung's release of ICS for the Galaxy S2 I decided to compile some of them myself.

This is a fair bit of work, because the stock Android apps won't compile as SDK apps (i.e. a standard APK that you can upload to the market) because they contain lots of references to private data and APIs. Removing/fixing these references takes a while, and in one case was not possible.

But anyway, I have now finished (more or less) three of these apps!

Calendar: Market, APK

Launcher: Market, APK

Messaging: Market, APK

All tested on Galaxy S2 and seem to work.

NB: As in the Apex launcher, the widget-adding experience is not totally correct. This is due to a stupid permissions thing. More details in the market links.

If you like these, consider donating to me! I may do more if anyone actually does... but I remain dubious!

Thank you for your work. It has long sought such a calendar. Built-in does not suit me. I will wait for its development.

So I deleted (backed up actually) the stock Galaxy one which is called TouchWizCalendar.apk. The put in this one and works fine.

One question. I have a 3rd party widget that shows the calender events on the home screen. When I click on it, it doesnt open the calendar anymore. Its set to open the default calendar.

Sort of have the same issue if you try to say "View Calendar" from an invite you got on an email, it tries to open what it thought was the original default calendar, but cant, so the phone just vibrates then basically the Email app itself just crashes.

How do I force this 4.0.3 AOSP calendar to be the default one?

So maybe I'm an idiot but I can't figure out how to run the messaging app. After install I still only have one 'Messaging' in my apps list and it's the stock Samsung one....
What am I missing?

Edit: I was an idiot Figured it out.
Unfortunately the app both receives and sends duplicate messages, so it's not really useful right now.
