One of the major improvements in iOS 7.1, which dropped to the public a couple of weeks ago, is the largely-improved Calendar application that includes the ability to see a list of events while in the Calendar's month view, and a number of country-specific holidays that have been added to the Calendar as well.
Unfortunately, iOS 7.1 patches the evasi0n7 jailbreak, and therefore, many people won't be updating; but that doesn't mean that those who don't update can't get the new iOS 7.1 Calendar application.
iOS hacker and developer Ryan Petrich has managed to port the iOS 7.1 Calendar application to jailbroken iOS devices running iOS 7.0-7.0.6. Now available on his beta repository in Cydia is a new package dubbed Gregorian, which will install a separate Calendar application on your Home Screen labeled "Gregorian."
This second Calendar application with the label of Gregorian is actually the Calendar application from iOS 7.1, and includes all of the new features that aren't available in the older version of the Calendar application. After installing Gregorian, you can then move the Gregorian application icon to wherever your Calendar application was and then hide the Calendar application icon with some other jailbreak tweak.
To install Gregorian, add Ryan Petrich’s beta repository by following the steps below:
- tap on the Manage tab
- tap on the Sources button
- tap on the Edit button
- tap on the Add button
- enter the following URL and then tap Add Source:
