Goal: Change the color of "my calendar" from pink to Blue.

I've tried putting an android stock Calendar.apk and deleted the others, but I couldn't get it to work. Is there another way to do this?

Is there another Calendar APK that will change this? Or can I somehow remove the Pink color in the file-system? or remove the "my calendar" all-together, and keep the google one?

Just want to change the pink!

Have you looked at your google calender settings online... I am sure you can edit your colors there.

I tried to change this myself, finally gave up, however I did find a good calendar app that I really like in it's place Gemini, very nice indeed.

What agenda widget are you using there, OP? And what widget theme if one of the popular agenda widgets?

Unfortunately it seems the "My Calendar" is part of the Samsung calendar app that can't be removed. The best you can do is hide it, but any events you create will still be assigned to the pink My Calendar by default. So whenever you create an event, you have to choose the calendar you want.

The obvious workaround would be to replace the TouchWiz calendar with the stock Android calendar, but I just tried that a little while ago and it didn't work. There may be a way to get it working in the future. Until then I'm just ignoring the My Calendar thing.

I was able to replace the TouchWiz calendar with the normal Android calendar roughly according to the directions in this thread:
(Sorry for the crappy link, but I can't do proper links yet.)

I've edited mcb00f's directions slightly and repeated and repeated them here:

1.) You must have root to replace the TouchWiz calendar! Use root explorer or ADB to move TouchWizCalendar.apk, TouchWizCalendar.odex, TouchWizCalendarProvider.apk and TouchWizCalendarProvider.odex to somewhere on your SD Card as backups. Reboot.

2.) Go into manage applications. Filter to all. Uninstall and Reboot again.

3.) Download Calendar.apk and CalendarProvider.apk from the thread referenced above and copy them to your SD card. Install both.

4.) If you want, use root explorer to move them from /data/app to /system/app but it's really not necessary. Reboot again, should sync by default but re-enable if you need to.

If you get an error or it doesn't work, it's probably because you didn't reboot one of the three times you need to do so!

Hope that helps!

Edit: Just in case it wasn't clear, the My Calendar calendar and events in it will be deleted along with the TouchWiz calendar app, so if you have anything you want to keep from that calendar, you should back it up accordingly!
