Same problem here with a bq M4.5 since a few days.
Tried with two devices, one with Android 5.1 and one with Android 6. Unfortunately I cannot copy the log for some reason.
Thanks for having a look into this!
@spot Unfortunately, we still don’t have an idea what the problem could be or how it could be reproduced. Any hints are appreciated…
The problem seems to occur primarily on Samsung devices with Android 5 or 6. Accessing SyncState seems to crash the contacts provider or some other important Android processes on those devices, so that further sync operations fail.
I’m working on a version which doesn’t use
ContactsContract.SyncStatefor testing purposes.
I was able to reproduce the problem on Android 5 and I guess the problem is caused by a memory leak which should be fixed with vcard4android/4da2606a.
I have sent another APK over email. Please tell me whether it now works for you.
@rfc2822 Sorry for the missing logs, https://paste.fedoraproject.org/paste/ass-QxxvNjhGJ1A0M58Y7w
@rfc2822 Have installed memory leak APK at initial force sync shows no errors. Will provide an update after a scheduled sync and some contact data changes. Looks very promising! thank you so much for your help.

I started getting this error today, the problem is that my contact list is emptied out after this but I get my contacts back after a restart, I do not know what is going on?
I have been using Davdroid for years, never had this issue. Also, I have not upgraded Davdroid for quite sometime. I also did not upgrade any of my system stuff. SO this has nothing to do with upgrades, it is weird that this issues suddenly started and experienced by peopel around the same time.
I am using Davdroid (Fdroid version) on Samsung Note 4, Lollipop with Nextcloud server.
Can i get a hold of the new apk as well?
@tartarian Hi, I was seeing the same issue with the default Android contacts client however, the latest DAVdroid build seems to have resolved all the issues. Sync is working perfectly in both directions and the contacts app is behaving correctly.

@cevans thanks, It looks like the update was rolled out yesterday.
1.11.1 is now available in F-Droid, too!
