[Q] Gmail - Out of date sync that won't update

I'm on CM 4.4.2 and I've had this issue a few times now. My Google account syncs properly except for Gmail which is "stuck" in an out of date sync. No matter what I do, Gmail refuses to update itself. This results in not getting new mail notifications, and not being able to see any new email since the last sync.

Things I've tried:
  • Rebooting
    Clearing Gmail cache
    Clearing Gmail app data + cache
    Forcing a resync in Settings > accounts

This is what it looks like, you can see here 1 minute before the screenshot I forced a resync of my Google account, everything updates fine except for Gmail which is stuck on 2014-01-20.



After clearing app data + cache, Gmail is stuck on this screen:



The only way to workaround the issue is to remove my entire Google account and set it back up again on the device. This is not ideal, and the issue comes back at some point again.

I get this with contacts, it will only sync one time when I flash a new gapps. I have had this issue since I rooted, some 13+ months ago.

Try to flash another rom instead of CM 4.4 see if your gmail is working, if its then probably a bug with CM or you can try to flash different gapp? http://d-h.st/yrl

Do you have any emails stuck sending? If so you would need to delete them along with the above steps of clearing data and such

I don't think its 4.4 related. I have had an issue with my contacts syncing since I rooted over a year ago. I have gone from 4.2-4.4 roms, tw and asop. It didn't matter. I tried different gapps, from 0day to PA to what was recommended by the roms developer. Only after a wipe will I sync one time.
