Local Sync on Android 4 - system upgrade

Datum přidání: Aug 30, 2012 9:21:30 AM

Due to various issues in contacts application caused by proprietary changes made by manufacturers in Android 2 and 3 Local Sync synchronized contacts into various accounts (and not Local Sync account) - HTC devices and Samsung tablets - therefore if one updated Android firmware without wipe following would happen on some devices:


Move contacts from trash back again to contacts.

Second scenario is that Local Sync was uninstalled before update as it is instructed on program web page.


In fact contacts are not duplicated, but there is double set of contacts in original (non Local Sync) account and Local Sync account. So it is only necessary to delete contacts in original account (as described on program web page, it is phone account on HTC devices and device account on Samsung tablets).

Android 4 supports fully 3rd party apps/external accounts. See Local Sync and Android 4 ICS.
