Android 7+: Contact sync after each call and SMS


  • developer

    Should be worked around by davdroid/faaaa330 (further testing required).



  • Can I help testing somehow? (I only have my regular day-to-day phone for testing, but I do have backups, just in case).

    We could always use some testing. Are you interested in beta testing? Where did you get DAVdroid from/which signature?

    I’m normally using the release from F-Droid.



  • Hello,

    I’ve sent you a updated version of DAVdroid to your email address. Can you please try if it works?

    Important: you need to completely uninstall and re-install DAVdroid, otherwise the signatures will not match!


  • developer

    Should be worked around with DAVdroid 1.4.0, please test it and tell us whether it works for you.



  • @devvv4ever I received that mail, however I couldn’t simply install it over the current F-Droid version, I didn’t have the time to double check my backup for the uninstall-reinstall-restore cycle then. Sorry for letting you wait.



  • From what I can tell (very short testing period so far), It will be dirty once after the update, as two things change: the REV and the PRODID. I haven’t seen single REV changes since the update to 1.4. I also didn’t notice any sync problem. I’ll report back if anything comes up. Looks good to me.



  • So far, everything looked alright. Tonight I had one incident that I can’t quite put my finger on it: One of my contacts just lost their groups. Here’s the diff (anonymized):

    diff --git a/55cd82aa-5d0d-444e-b414-3905d2193d42.vcf b/55cd82aa-5d0d-444e-b414-3905d2193d42.vcf

    So, instead of the categories, suddenly there’s a line just saying <space>1 (1 with leading space). This is not forum formatting, or the leading space of the diff format, this is actually in the vcard.

    I did have other syncs that same day which still have their catetegories. They also have the <space>1 extra line.

    Again, not sure if this is related, but I thought I’d mention it.



  • I now believe this to be unrelated, I started another thread for the CATEGORIES issue.
