    So out of the blue the other day I noticed that I wasn't getting email notifications for gmail. I can still go into the app and manually refresh it and it will show my new emails but no notifications. I tried uninstalling the updates and reinstalling them but now I'm getting an installation error while trying to update. Suggestions anyone?

    Try this:
    Using Root Explorer, go to system > app and rename the Gmail.apk to Gmail.bpk. Reboot and then try installing the updated Gmail. If it works go back and delete the Gmail.bpk ...

    If your sync issue still occurs, try going into menu > settings > manage apps > all > go to Gmail, select it and clear cache ...

    You need to change the permission. Open Root Explorer and in the right there will be a white box tap and it will change to R/W

    Have you tried clearing the cache? Go into menu > manage applications > all > scroll down to Gmail, select it and the clear cache. If that doesn't do it, then try clearing data and cache; if you have to do that you'll have to go back into Gmail and reset your settings again.
    Other than that I am at a lose.

    I'm having the same issue. Oddly enough for the first time I went in to settings and the CLear Cache button was disabled, as if it'd been done already.

    Any other thoughts on this? Also means I get no notifications with GV and I'm assuming Gtalk as well :(
