you are going to have to wipe data/cache to get rid of the sync icon. renaming that .apk will force your google calendar and gmail to stop syncing i believe.
if you are indeed on Rooted GB, download droid 2 bootstrapper, bootstrap recivery then reboot recovery, navigate using up/down volume rocker and camera button to select to wipe data, and wipe it. then reboot phone. should be good after then. but then you have to set everything back up.
I just did a factory reset and it worked perfectly! I would love to get it rooted though...obviously Z4root isn't working for me...any advice?
