    [TITLE=Installing S Planner calendar widget] [TAB=Apk Download][NOTE]Below is a Mirrored download to Verizon Galaxy Note 2 S Planner widget apk. This was taken from Sprint Galaxy note 2 variant. The apk is deodexed. So you will have to disable its odex counter part if you are still on your stock odexed rooted rom [/NOTE]
    SPlannerWidget.apk

    [/TAB][TAB=Using a file manager]Using a File manager (free or paid)[/B]
    If you choose not to use Titanium backup there are other options.Using any File manager from the market that gives you root management such as Root Explorer or File Manager you can rename apps rendering them disabled and unable to restart themselves. The example below is using Root explorer but the basic principles would apply to any root file manager application.

    Root Explorer

    Making it root managing accessible:

    Navigating Root Explorer:Renaming a file to disable it, in this example an apk ( to re-enable the app rename it from .bak to .apk)[/TAB][TAB=Instructions]
    Using Root Explorer
    1.Download the SPlannerAppWidget.apk to your computer.
    2.Copy the app to your phone in a folder that you prefer and will remember where you put the file
    3.Using root explorer Find the SPlannerAppWidget.apk that you placed on your phone and copy it by long pressing on the file and selecting copy
    4.Using the back button on your phone navigate to the /System/app directory
    5.At the top of root explorer Mount your app folder as R/W (read-write)
    6.Press paste root explorer will give a pop up warning that the file already exists . do you want to over write. Hit YES
    If you are running a deodexed rom skip to Step #8
    7.In that same folder find SPlannerAppWidget.odex long press the file and select rename. Rename it from SPlannerAppWidget.odex to SPlannerAppWidget.bak
    8. At the top of root explorer Mount your app folder as R/O (Read-Only)
    9. Reboot you phone and enjoy your New widgets.
    [INFO]I tried to make videos tonight but its 6am and im tired, ill try to get a video up tomorrow[/INFO][/TAB][TAB=Credits]

    so you renamed the odex file, it works but it is force closing..... try booting into recovery and wiping cache. do you know how to do that?

    Ya know I simply replaced the existing splannerwidget.apk like I did with the system one for the wifi toggle. I did see the odex file. I did the wrong one eh? Any way to undo what I did?

    I saw that but I was under impression the step you noted was the people that did the more complex root and not the easy one. Please tell me what I can/should do.

    Using your file manager navigate to the /System/app directory
    At the top of root explorer Mount your app folder as R/w (Read-Write)
    In that folder find SPlannerAppWidget.odex long press the file and select rename. Rename it from SPlannerAppWidget.odex to SPlannerAppWidget.bak
    At the top of root explorer Mount your app folder as R/O (Read-Only)
    Reboot

    I think what screwed me up the first time (and caused me to bootloop) was I attempted to fix permissions. The instructions don't say to do so.

    Droid, as I was playing with my new widget I realized the s pen air view feature doesn't work. I can't remember if it should? Fortunately it does on the calendar app. Also, aren't we able to use s pen features on widget? My s pen additions to calendar app doesn't show on the widget!

    Ib have not seen any place that air view works with the planner so I am not sure.

    Are you looking in the correct place.
    External sdcard is found in this path
    /storage/extsdcard
    /sdcard is the internal sdcard

    Custom roms are usually deodexed. So if you don't see any .odex files in the /system/app folder you are deodexed. Just skip step #7 of this guide
