@j-ed Thanks - it wasn’t DavX5 I was screaming about but the logic of the Android Contacts set-up. I realise the droid contacts app is a consolidation of a whole lot of backends - so if you’re taking something out of one backend to put it in another backend, then it ends up going in and out the front end… (I’m not trying to be indecent, honest
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Failed to allocate a 8227872 byte allocation with 2097152 free bytes and 5MB until OOM
so i think this means >8MB .vcf file-size ?!
Thanks @hokuspokus for the hint with the big profile photos.
(i only have 53 contacts in this addressbook…)
how i found the contacts with big pictures:
in thunderbird CardBook i export my address book as directory.
this generates one .vcffile per contact -
then i sorted this folder with my file-manager after the size…
install tasks.org app
let Davx5 sync with tasks.org, not with Opentasks
give permissions when asked and sync in Davx5
tasks.org won’t sync with a free account, but that’s ok
in Davx5, now switch tasks.org back to Opentasks
sync Davx5 and Opentasks (hey, my tasks appear!)

Well, not really. First to be clear, my intention was to only sync my calender an not contacts, because I don’t have any adressbook maintained remotely.
After reading yours and the reply at the Simple Mobile Tools forum (link see my first post), I deleted the DAVx5 and Android Account hoping that my recent contacts might appear again. “Withtout any Android account” was the actual state before setting up DAVx5 sync, besides maybe a built-in, implicit one. I don’t know if this exists under the hood, but in the Settings there was no account shown before. I’m sure about that.
Additionally the statement in the Simple Contacts Pro forum, that the contacts app is agnostic to any account and kind of takes what it gets/finds on a device in terms of contacts, made me hope that the contacts might be seen again after account deletion.
Putting the provided information together, I tend to say, that DAVx5 was at least involved in the deletion of my contacts. Unfortunately even after account removal there were just the few contacts left, that I recreated after losing the whole address book on my Android device.
Its the same thing after uninstalling and reinstalling the apps.
But then i installed the App Tasks.org on my phone, grant the permissions for this app and now OpenTasks is working. Even after uninstalling Tasks.org, OpenTasks is still working.
