Everything was working good until a few days ago. Now the Gmail app states that is waiting for sync. Your email will appear shortly..

And it never does. Ive tried turning off and back on the auto sync and tried to manually sync but I get an error message that says

The process has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

Does anyone have an idea on how I can get it up and running again? Thanks.

I'm on JF's RC33

Ok, I figured it out. I went into settings and Gmail Storage and cleared out the data. Then I went back into gmail and entered my account information again and it seems to be syncing now. Really weird, I dont know how it just stopped working. Anyway, hope this helps someone in the future.

Reinstall any apps you've been using to send attachments (eg. Note Everything, Doodleroid etc.), clear out your gmail and gmail storage data, and it should work.

Try to avoid sending multiple attachments at once: for example if you send one and it 'stalls' and you try to send it again, it could do this to your gmail.

I also had this issue. I resolved this issue by turning sync back on. Once I enabled sync, I was able to get right into my gmail account.

Similar problem here
(Using CM 5.0.8 final on my original black G1)
I can manually sync with the server to get email, but syncing seems to happen maybe once a day for the past week or so. It used to happen so frequently that i'd see email on my phone before i'd see it in my web browser if i was at a computer.

Haven't changed anything recently... Tried rebooting the phone of course.

Can't find the tool for clearing out gmail on my phone, so i haven't tried that.

any other theories?


Edit: Turned off sync everywhere and rebooted. Got stuck in a boot loop.
Used amon ra recovery console to wipe dalvik cache
Boot loop is fixed
Refresh problem seems fixed too.
