I was annoyed with having the daily view as the default view in the calendar, so i did some digging and found this thread:

Here are the line numbers in for app-assitant.jsjsjs $in$ $1$.$2$:
129,130,134,166,173,181,375

change the "day" to "weekly" or "monthly" on all the above lines, depending on which view you want as the default. Voila! Props to mathewn!
