    Thanks for the report. It’s a duplicate of #183 which describes a problem with handling TXT records.

  • Strange, that it was working fine with developer preview. Although I used a different method for importing the root certificate this time. (Last time I installed the certificate and then moved it into the system storage with Cert mover from FDroid. This time I got the CACert installer from play store).

    Strange, that it was working fine with developer preview.

    Did you try exactly the same DAVdroid version and were exactly the same SRV/TXT records set?

  • I have not touched SRV/TXT records until last night. And I used whatever latest version of DavDroid from FDroid. It’s usually one of the first things I install and keep updated all the time.

    Just tried again after removing TXT record and letting it propagate. It was able to pick up calendars and address books normally.
