[ How To ] Browser Bookmark Sync Issues
This is my first ever post on XDA...
I found an interesting situation where after installing Beanstalk 4.4.200 and pa-gapps-mini, my android browser bookmark sync was gone. All I could see is "Local" in the browser not the additional bookmarks from my Chrome account. Just to make sure I went to Settings > Accounts > Google > firstname.lastname@example.org
, the Browser option is not there! So, I updated to the newest version of Beanstalk (4.4.225) and grabbed the gapps posted by the OP (gapps-kk-20131208.zip). Still, no solution. I tried searching everywhere and found no solution.
Then, I found that there is an APK that takes care of this called ChromeBookmarksSyncAdaptor.apk
I stumbled upon it by digging into the zip file for pa-gapps-full. It should be under the gapps location: system > app > ChromeBookmarksSyncAdaptor.apk
I pulled it out of the pa-gapps-full package, put it on my Infuse SDCard (thank you Dropbox!), and installed it by using Root Browser to copy the apk file into /system/app
After a reboot, the option to Sync in the Android accounts area is there. I just had to check it. Now I can see Chrome bookmarks in my Android browser.

Thought I'd share incase anyone else ran into this problem.
Has anyone else seen this issue? If so, how did you resolve it?
