Gregorian

Developer Ryan Petrich has released a new jailbreak app to his beta repo that allows jailbroken users to experience the new iOS 7.1 calendar on lesser firmware.

Entitled Gregorian, this standalone jailbreak app is a great compromise for those who wish to remain on jailbroken firmware, but want to experience some of the cool new features introduced with Apple’s recent iOS 7.1 release. Check inside for all of the details.

Once you install the package, which takes about a minute or two to process, you will be asked to reboot your device. Upon rebooting, you’ll find a brand new app on your Home screen called Gregorian. The app looks just like the stock Calendar app, and can be used to outright replace the stock Calendar app.

Using the Gregorian calendar app is very much the same as using the stock Calendar app, but there is one major difference between the two. Gregorian features the iOS 7.1-inspired event views, which are accessible by tapping the show events button to the left of the magnifying glass near the upper right-hand corner of the app.

Gregorian List View

Tapping the show events button will reveal a list of items for a particular day beneath the calendar. This same button can also be used to switch between a full and singular list view when drilled down to a specific day.

Once again, Ryan Petrich has come to the rescue of jailbroken iOS owners. If you were feeling a little salty about your inability to use Apple’s cool new calendar features on your jailbroken device, you should add Ryan’s beta repo and download Gregorian today.

    Ryan always saves the day πŸ˜€
    SSL Patch… Gregorian… What next?

    • AlbertGomez

      How about auto HDR..

      • I have already seen a tweak that is out for exactly that.

      • TeeDee

        May I know the name of the tweak? I tried googling, but I can’t find it πŸ™

      • Marcus

        This has been out for a while πŸ˜›

  • Jonathan

    Ryan, you are awesome.

  • Leonard Wong

    With this, less reason to upgrade to iOS 7.1

  • Diego Milano

    Good. I just don’t know why we can’t have it as ‘Calendar’ instead of having to have a ported app with a different name on our springboard.

    • sharp44MAG .

      You can download icon tool and then rename the app.

      • f1ght3r

        Or Icon Renamer also by Ryan Petrich.

      • But if you come from notificattions you will run into the Calender App…

    • Lurker22

      Agreed. Why not just make this a “patch” to enable the functionality?

      • Diego Milano

        Also, what’s the most useful and practical difference between this and tapping the magnifying glass in Calendar?

      • Nate McKelvie

        I’m wondering the same thing

    • Fraught

      Just have to wait for a 7.1 jailbreak. I’m kind of hesitant to replace my stock Calendar with something else just for this view, ’cause the Calendar is incorporated into other parts of the OS.

      • Diego Milano

        I respect Ryan but I think I’ll pass on this one. Why? Three reasons:
        1. I don’t like to have a calendar replacement that’s actually the stock calendar ripoff with a different name floating on my springboard.
        2. I don’t like to replace my calendar app with a stock ripoff altogether. Why not keep the original one and tweak it as other developers do?
        3. I don’t see any substantial or practical difference between the magnifying glass and this.

      • Fraught

        Yeah. It has the addition of the appointments under the month view, but it’s not that significant an update.

  • f1ght3r

    I like it, but I wish it replaced the stock calendar app instead of creating a new app.

    • I’m sure that Ryan wouldn’t have just arbitrarily decided to do that. He usually has a reason for his decisions.

  • Eddie Hines

    just use fantastical 2. it’s light-years better!

    • Diego Milano

      I always wondered about it- what’s the greatest feature Fantastical 2 has on top of the stock one in iOS 7?

      • Eddie Hines

        It allows you to create any appointment or reminder using natural language, as well as allows you a better view of your appointments in a dark view rather than with a white background

  • Kevin Odenwald

    I used Springtomize to hide the original calendar app. To rename the app, i edit the “InfoPlist.string”. That’s it πŸ˜‰

    • Joe Bloggs

      Could you teach me how to edit the InfoPlist.string?
      I’ve already hidden the original Calendar icon with Springtomize.

      • Kevin Odenwald

        Open iFile go to: “var/stash/Applications.xxxx/NewCal.app/English.lproj” and open InfoPlist.string with Text-Editor and rename all Gregorian to Calendar. Save, respring and be happy πŸ˜‰

  • aniel

    After installing & removing this my iphone is stuck at the apple logo

  • Chetan

    LOL.. Plan to return mac pro in 12 days πŸ˜›

  • Linton Findlay

    need week calendar, dont like having to pay for a third party app just for that πŸ™

    • jacobkwright

      flip your phone to landscape for week view.

  • Samy060

    Does iCloud sync work with Gregorian ?

    • Kevin Odenwald

      yes!

    • Guest

      How about auto HDR

      • Fraught

        There is a jailbreak tweak for that and you were already told so, you blithering buffoon.

      • TeeDee

        What’s the name of that tweak? I tried googling but I can’t find it πŸ™

      • c-word

        Possibly “AlwaysHDREnabled” from Milo Darling?

      • TeeDee

        I saw this tweak before. But what it does is just enable HDR forever, not auto HDR πŸ™

  • Noam Matalon

    The app seems to crash for me,,, any suggestions?

    • Imitsu

      Me too. When I click on the month view, it crash. I don’t know what is going on

    • Freak Cleverman

      Go to settings>general>international and Change the region format to United States. It seems to fix it for me.

      • Noam Matalon

        yes! that worked, thanks!

      • Freak Cleverman

        No probs πŸ™‚

  • DaveP

    no icon on my screen even after a reboot, any fix?

    • Same here

    • Kevin Odenwald

      easy to fix this! use iFile an go to: “/private/var/mobile/Library/Caches” and find “com.apple.mobile.installation.plist” rename it to “com.apple.mobile.installation.plist.BACKUP” and reboot. After reboot the icon is on your homescreen.. have fun!

  • fernando

    Please the phone app and the music app buttons too

  • Sweet; and I expect more cydia tweaks for 7.1 features to follow

  • Smeltn

    I installed this on my iPhone 5s running 7.0.6 but it isn’t showing up on my homescreen!

  • Chun-Li aka ThunderThighs

    I knew I shouldn’t have installed this shit. It always puts my in safe mode and now can’t remove it. Running iPhone 5 7.0.6 guys be careful installing this. Now I gotta restore iPhone .

  • kyriakosmp

    This shit of an app ruined my mail and safari apps. Now they both crash at startup. Plus it doesn’t work for international regions. DON’T INSTALL THIS

  • Omer Efenberg

    I insalled the tweak and than i reboot my iphone and now it stuck on Apple logo.
    what should i do??

  • intentionally blankβ„’

    Hi, do you know of a tweak that allows copying/pasting of calendar events? Not recurring or repeating but one time copying the event so I dont have to re-enter the information all over again. c’mon apple. Thanks

  • jmans25
