    Hey guys,
    I just installed froyo on my phone and now I can't sync my phone with google. It never asked me to right away when I started the phone and I can't add the account either, it doesn't allow me. Any ideas?

    That's odd, did it just skip all the intro stuff when the rom loaded and started the rom? Did you clear/format system, cache, etc 1 - 2 times before installing the 2.2 rom. I know theres a delay in some sync when phone starts because of it restoring all the app data but that's about it.

    should i do wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache partition each twice? i originally didn't do that before loading the rom, by the way i am using sprecovery // and yes it did just load the rom, skipped the intro crap

    Welcome and have fun. The reason why it didn't work is because when you restored the 2.2 you didn't wipe the previous data and it stuck around i believe and screwed things up. When jumping to different roms its always best to do a wipe before hand and also a backup before you do anything. Just so you don't run into problems.

    Sync issues

    I'm having a similar issue. I followed all the instructions, including wiping data & cache twice. After rebooting, it asked for my gmail credentials. However, it's not syncing my google contacts or gmail.

    When going to menu > settings >accounts & sync, it DOES list my gmail account. However, if I click on it, there is nothing listed on that page. Normally, it would have individual entries for calendar, gmail, and contacts.

    Any ideas?
