Sony Ericsson includes a custom calendar application with its' Android phones and it is extremely limited, ugly, and slow.
I found the default Calendar.apk for Android and ran it on my phone, but all I got was "Installation not successful"

How can I run an apk as root from the phone?

Cheers

I finally figured out how to do this...

You will need a rooted device, adb installed on your computer, and the stock calendar application, attached here.

On your phone uninstall Calendar and CalendarProvider. Using Titanium Backup or some other app makes it easier.

Then go to phone Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications and delete:
  • com.android.calendar
  • com.android.calendarprovider

Connect the phone to you computer in debug mode and launch a terminal.
  • adb install /pathToFile/CalendarProvider.apk
  • adb install /pathToFile/Calendar.apk

You're done

Is the stock Android calendar different for each android device?

If I replace this calendar app with the stock app from SE, will I retain my calendar entries? I should expect so since it is based on Google Calendar right? Just asking to make sure, thanks in advance.

Google stores the data so don't worry about it.
But remember you are replacing the Sony Ericsson app with the Android stock app.
