Hello,
I just flashed a brand new copy of Android 5.0 (fresh install) on my N5 and for some reason it won't update the profile picture from Google+ like in previous versions (4.4.4 and before).

This is what I mean:

1. Open Setting -> Apps -> All -> Contacts Storage -> Clear Data

2. Open Google+ -> Settings -> Your account (under Account Settings) -> Contacts -> Keep contacts up to date

I had this problem and what suggested up here by Anan solved it, but now I changed the background profile picture in G+ and
- On my Nexus tablet, in Gmail, the background is just white (I mean the one that generally appear under the circle profile pic)
- On my phone it's still the old one

How to update this? I tried the workaround written by Anan for the pic but it didn't solve this problem...

I have Google+ frozen on my device and only get the default blue icon. When I try to select an image, QuickPic comes up and I can select and crop onr but it does not stick.

Have a similar issue except I'd like to remove the user profile picture (and in the best case scenario, linking the phones owner contact picture to the user profile picture)
