I discovered a few days ago that the base android calculator was force closing whenever I tried to run it. I was on the 8/20 firmware with key, market, and notification bar hacks... When I restored my device yesterday to 8/6... I checked again... Same thing.....NO CALCULATOR.... So I went to the marketplace and found a very nice replacement for free...RealCalc V 1.4.2 Excellent calculator...

Mine came back on roebeet's 8/27, after I lost it from the 8/12 (his dates on the mods of OEM 8/6 & 8/20).BUT, before I went to the new FW, I did a stock upgrade to 8/20, reset back to factory defaults on the PDN System settings, then installed the new mod -- which runs like a Caddilac during a test drive.

I'd like to try installing it to see if it will work on my PDN. After seeing cosmos' post, I checked my unit and found that the calculator wasn't working for me either.

We can do that. Hope this works. I thought it resided in system, but Smartbar let me just back it up to the SD. My old broken one would never uninstall or allow itself to be backed up before.It's version 5 of Android Calculator 2, which is not on the Market from what I can tell after wading through about a hundred calculators there. No idea what the old one was, but on system this one calls itself: com.android.calculator2I have a new icon installed, looks like the calculator program icon on a Mac. I don't know if it went through or if you've got the default one that looks like a child's toy calculator. Of all the calculators I've tried, this is the only one that actually uses all the real estate on the PDN screen. Don't even try Retro Calculator. It renders impossibly stupid.

Have you tried placing the file in to /system/app with adb? The calculator is a system file and needs to be installed correctly.Also, don't use adb install as this is not what you want to do.

Do you guys have the "ARM11 optimized DVM w/JIT" hacked? Try to revert the hack and see if the base calculator works?I had the same problem before, but once I removed the ARM11 hack, the base calculator, somehow, works again.

However, I'm not sure how to reverse the above hack and the other calculator I loaded has the same won't-work problem. Can you give step-by-step directions as to how to hack-reverse ? Thanks!

Stock calculator working ok on my WPDN with PD's 9/23 update + Launcherpro/gottahavit's button hacks/various add-on apk's.It is a bit disappointing in being a simplistic 7-inch calculator, so I think I will be checking out some with more features such as memory accumulators, history "tape", etc.

I don't know if reading it backwards will help ...
