    Hey all,

    For some reason my main gmail account (the first one I set up on my phone) has stopped refreshing automatically. I have to go into the gmail app, and press - Menu - Refresh to get the inbox to update. I can't find any settings that would turn this off...

    I have been running BB.4 with Chevy's 1.0GHz MV kernel for at least a week or two, and it has been working well except for this recent problem. I have two other email accounts set up through gmail, and they are updating properly.

    Does anyone know how to remedy this problem? I can't delete the account without a factory reset.

    Otherwise, I love this ROM!

    EDIT: I found another thread about this, but they seemed to solve the problem by making sure that Menu - Settings - Accounts and Sync - Automatically Sync was checked. This setting is already enabled on my phone.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Menu key -> Settings -> Accounts & sync, and make sure the account is set to sync there.

    Edit: Oops, that's what I get for taking a call while waiting to reply, glad you found it.

    Yeah - I thought I had searched already for this issue the other day, but someone started a similar thread yesterday. But their solution didn't work for me...

    Do you think going into Settings - Applications - Manage Applications, and then picking the Gmail app and clearing data and cache would cause any problems?

    That is my next step if I can't find an obvious solution...

    Also, I an runnning NexTheme on the phone if that matters at all...

    Thanks!

    Actually, clearing the cache is something I'd try. I had a second twitter program installed for a while and after I uninstalled it, the default app wasn't syncing. I cleared the cache, rebooted and it came back. Since the cache is only on your phone it has zero chance of messing with your real Gmail, so I'd certainly try that before going to the extreme of a factory reset.

    What about the "Clear Data" button - do you think that would be worth doing too? Or maybe I will start with the Clear Cache and see what happens.

    If it were me one at a time in order it'd be clear cache, clear data, remove other Gmails, rebooting just to be sure in between, then thinking about more drastic fixes.

    Clearing cache and data and a reboot seems to have solved the problem for now. At first I thought that clearing cache was enough, but I was wrong...
