What's causing my sync logo to stay in my notification bar is the Email Engine. When I force close this, the sync logo goes away. Every time I restart it comes back though. I guess a factory reset is the only way to go. Bummer.
Update: I checked what's been using my battery the most, and besides the display, it was com.motorola.contacts. I noticed that none of my contacts had their usual pictures next to their names, which leads me to believe that my contact pictures are being updated with their facebook profile pics. I hope this is the cause. I'm just going to let this run its course and see what happens. Will update if when I find out.

i found this from another thread or forum (sorry i remember copying/pasting but don't have the link to the OP or the person who replied with this info). It worked for me:
I don't know if this will work for you but I had the same exact problem and this is how I solved it. It appears it is an error with the Blurcontactsync.apk file I was going to just leave it but it drained my battery way to fast. To fix it...use root explorer and go to system/app (change from Mount R/W to Mount R/O) and then change the blurcontactsync.apk to blurcontactsync.apk.bak After you change it back from Mount R/O to Mount R/W the sync icon should go away. I am still trying to find a fix for it but until then this will have to work. From what I have found it is just a Moto software program that does the exact same thing as the google sync software anyway. I hope it works for you as well.
What if you don't have root? I really don't want to wipe the phone, but I guess I will if I have to. Is there a one click root out yet for GB on the X? If so I'll root and fix the problem rather than wipe.
according to certain sites google took syncing from facebook for contacts out due to the fact they were using their own program on the phone to do it i guess its googles way of trying to make facebook integrate more google. however i went from stock froyo to rooted GB and am having the same problem though no duplicate apps running/syncing and have done factory reset however my back up assistant from verizon is constantly with one pending could be what it is on mine
Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.
I would guess I need root to be able to change that file ext in order to get rid of the sync icon. Anyway to change that extention without root? Anyone know when we will have root for the OTA GB? Unfortunatly I did't put the rooted GB on my phone.
