I need some help.
I'm aware that a lot of people have this issue. The sync icon is stuck for me. I've been searching for a couple hours and found that yes, the problem is with Motorola's Contacts Sync app. Force closing it doesn't work; it comes back in a few minutes. It drains my battery. I can't freeze it, rename it, whatever since I don't have root access.
I am aware that wiping my data should fix the problem. However, I am worried about losing my application data. I am not worried about the apps themselves, but the settings/saves/progress I have in all my apps and games; I don't want to lose that.
Last time I had to wipe (hardware failure), Google didn't replace my apps; I have no idea if Google would replace app data either. I just want to know if there's some way I can back up my app data somehow (remember, I'm not rooted and the OTA as of yet isn't rooted) so I can make my life after wipe a little less painful.
Oh, and if you know how to remove the sync icon without root, that would be even better. Thanks!
