    recently sbf'd and restored my apps/data with titanium ....
    the google sync icon will not disappear from the notification bar, i've tried unchecking/rechecking the items that are set to sync for my google accounts, icon still present.

    anyone know what might be the cause ?

    I wish I had an answer .... I have a related question I hope can be answered as a piggyback (& not a hijack)...
    My synch icon is very busy as well, but the question of the hour is, Why is Google's SF Giants baseball schedule not synching... everything else on the desktop calendar is there. I just spent an hour on the phone with tech support at Verizon & Motorola. I suspect it's a google glitch, but they are unavailable. :icon_eek:

    maybe try to unsubscribe from the calendar via gmail on a desktop, then re-add it.

    i think my situation was something to do with titanium backing up some setting that when restored was causing the hickup.

    I had the same problem you have to do a factory reset delete everything and bring back only apps no data that stopped it.

    have you tried just a reboot that usually helps with things like this

    yes, no dice ....

    there is something being backed up by titanium that is overwriting the system causing the issue .... not sure what it is.

    as the previous guy said, i did a factory data reset, then recreated my accounts. it's a good thing i did an export of my contacts, because i don't use gmail for contact sync.

    Try menu>applications>running services then click on titanium backup and stop the process. Do the same if sync doesn't stop. You can also force stop apps in manage applications under the above menu item.

    I was having the same issue. If I rebooted, it went away for about 30 seconds and then bam. back. It was annoying seeing it all day.

    Here's how I got rid of it, if it's the same annoying sync icon using Root Explorer:

    1. Browse to system/app
    2. Mount as R/W
    3. Scroll to "BlurContactsSync.apk" and rename it to BlurContactsSync.bak
    (long-hold on the file to get the options to rename)
    4. Mount R/O
    5. Reboot if necessary

    My sync icon went away within seconds of making that apk go away, no reboot needed. I did reboot shortly after to make sure nothing wacky was going to happen.

    Good luck!
