I just flashed the rooted Spanish 2.3 firmware which is working well apart from the absence of Calendar & Contacts. I tried pasting the relevant apk's from my Xperia X10i 2.3 (CM7) phone to system/app but with no success. Does anyone have any suggestions?

The only other glitch I found was that there was no entry for Accounts under Settings but I got round that with an app called Anycut & created my own shortcut.

 

Thanks

This is true not just for the Spainsh software.  The stock software or rooted software all are missing acounts and settings, contacts, and calendar.  However if you install a app like GO Launcher and the calendar widget the calender is there and works.  Contacts also work in some apps.  The big problem is they dont sync with other apps or google.  So this is a missing piece with this tablet.

Same thing here.  I asked the question why and was told it is not a phone and therefor no contacts.  However if you install things like the GO Launcher calendar widget the calendar will work.  Other apps that use contacts or calendar will also work.  The problem is none of them sync with each other or google so they are pretty much worthless.

She is talking about the GO Contacts widget.  If you install GO Launcher (free) there is a add-on widget called GO Contacts.  This will sync with your contacts in Google.  However you have to have installed the Google Market in some way.

Thanks finless, i'd forgotten how i did it.  Laugh

Google market was installed from the first of the rooted ROMs. I am now running on your fully rooted ROM and it is very snappy.

only for calendar as i don't use contacts and i'm on stock rom 

this is how i got it working: 

 

1) Download this set of APK.  They are in this zip file.  Extract them and put them on your SD card. 
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=YXLTSZE9

2) Launch File manager.  Browse to your SD card and find the files you just extracted. 

3) First copy CalendarProvider.apk  to /system/app.  Do not copy the calendar app first! 

4) Now copy Calendar.apk to /system/app.  

5) Now copy over GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk  to  /system/app.  

6) Now Install the apks in that order 

7) Now reboot! 

8) After next boot up go into setting, applications, manage apps, and click ALL (it defaults to downloaded). Make sure Calendar, Calendar Storage, and Calendar Sync Adapter are all in the list.  If you are missing something then you did not do something right.  Go start again.  If you are only missing the syncadapter then try copying the sync adapter I supplied. 

9) There you go, you now have a icon that when you click it takes you to your accounts and sync settings.  Because as I said you needed the Market and a Google account already, your account should be listed.  Click it. Now you can see not only mail but calendar as well.  Check the box and let it do its thing!  YOUR SYNC'ed! 

 

OK some things to try if you have trouble: 

1) Go into manage apps and click on calendar and delete data files.  Do the same for Calendar Storage.  Now reboot and try again. 

2) Try actually installing the APKs.  Go to /system/app and click on Calendar and install it.  Same with the Calendar Storage apk.  You should not have to do this but try it anyway. 

 

Anyway after spending like 5 hours trying to get Google calendar to work this is the best I came up with.  Bottom line I have a calendar and it syncs!

Persistence will pay off ,Trust me !!!
