After multiple tests I come to the conclusion that with the service enabled the logs and contacts will not sync at all, ever. In order to get the logs and contacts to sync again you need to remount / rw and then disable the service with systemctl and reboot. Afterwards the sync works fine but the battery drain is of course back. Does anybody have an idea on how to keep the gear syncing without affecting the battery life? Is this behavior something expected or it is just my gear? Thanks in advance for any reply.
First thanks a lot for all your work. Using the root/service method on the Gear 2 for me didn't work well because I was unable to sync contacts or logs anymore. I decided to flash stock back on Gear 2 and downgrade GM to 2.1.14052101 and use the goproviders apk you provided specially for this version of GM. Now battery drain is great, logs sync well but contacts will not sync again. If I manually try to sync them from the Gear 2 side it says Syncing for a while and then it stops without really syncing them. Do you have any suggestions on how to sync the contacts in this scenario?
Again thanks a lot for all your great work!
Galaxy S5. As you wondered in the OP the problem exists even on Samsung devices. My Gear 2 drains a full battery in 8h without your mod. A friend of mine with a Note 3 has experienced the same.
Anyway how should contacts sync be affected by using your goproviders?
Again thanks for your great work.
Look, what goproviders fix does it just dilutes the sync logic invocations 1:256 (in the latest version). Also, I didn't create that fix for the latest versions of Gear Manager, so using the modded goproviders with those is not recommended and could break all sorts of things. I don't really know why the fix on the Gear doesn't work for you though. After connecting the Gear to the phone, there is typically enough time for the contacts to synchronise, even just once. The sync process is killed every 2 minutes, so it's a matter of luck. But, if you attempt several times (just disconnect/reconnect the Gear with the phone), it should work.
