    **** Update - sometime around August of 2015, the contacts APIs are no longer accessible without OAuth. This patch is now obsolete. Already installed accounts will still sync email, but you will not be able to add new ones or change your password. Accounts can be made to work using frantid's Google OAuth patch: Google Calendar Sync Behaviors patch - webOS Nation Forums

    **** Update - as of November 17, 2014: the version of the calendar API that webOS uses was turned off by Google. You still need this patch to fix the login issue for regular Google accounts, which still work for email, IM, and contacts (though not much reason to use for contacts when the C+DAV connector can handle the contacts). You just need to make sure calendar is turned off for those accounts, or it will constantly try to sync and fail, and prompt for your password. *****

    **** Update June 28, 2014: version 1.2 of the patch fixes the json parsing error that started recently and restores sync functionality again. Many thanks to frantid for jumping in and finding the fix when I didn't have time to work on it. Please make sure to thank him as it was done much sooner because he took the time to help. ****

    **** Also note: If you already have a previous verison of the gsync patch installed, you must remove the previous patch version first to restore the original files. The new patch patches all required files, not just the new one. (this is standard for any patch that is not installed from the feeds). I have added instructions for removing installed .patch files to the tutorial linked in my signature ( [How-to] Installing .patch files on your phone or Touchpad ) ****

    On March 31, 2014, Google began redirecting all contact API requests to https, which broke authentication for Google accounts on webOS 2.1 and higher. Accounts already set up seem to work fine, but upon changing your password, or attempting to add a new Google account, authentication would fail with 'unknown error'. This patch fixes Google sync by using https for authentication and sync of Google contacts. It also contains a patch by frantid to fix sync of on-device changes to Google contacts back to the Google servers. This patch has been tested on 2.1, 2.2.4, and 3.0.5. It has been reported that webOS 1.4.5 is not affected, and therefore, this patch is not necessary.

    If you have never installed any homebrew apps or patches on your device and need a tutorial, here is a how-to article I just finished to guide you. It contains a link to the setup guide that explains how to get your computer and your device prepared. [How-to] Installing .patch files on your phone or Touchpad

    Google Contacts API change notes: https://developers.google.com/google...v3/http-update

    I also uploaded a copy of the patch to my website. For those that are trying to download and install this from your device, do NOT try to download the forum attachment from your webOS device, because it will not work right -- so use this link instead: Link removed as patch is obsoleted by API changes. Use link at top of thread to get correct patches.

    One added note as there have been a number of people having trouble installing the patch recently. Please validate the patch file after you download it, before attempting to install it. See this post for details: [Patch] Google sync https fix (unknown error on sign in) - Page 30 - webOS Nation Forums

    I will move those details to this post later.

    FYI, I began having this problem with one of my existing accounts when 3.0.5 said I had to confirm the login (something that's been regularly happening for months). Glad to see this patch, as I expect that I'd eventually have each one of my Google accounts go south.

    Unfortunately, the email attachment link no longer seems to work for me (I've seen others mention this in other threads of late, though it doesn't appear to be a universal problem). All I get from clicking the link is a message popup with just an <OK> button on it, but no message (and no resultant email in my inbox).

    Is there any other way of getting my hands on this patch?

    I uploaded a copy of the patch to my website and put a link in the first post. Hopefully I will notice the link if I ever need to update the patch.

    I was thinking about this more this evening, and realized, even if your gmail is still working fine, your contacts will no longer sync until you apply this patch. I confirmed by removing the patch from one of my phones and then creating a new contact on a patched phone. The contact was synced to the cloud and to my Pre3, but not to the phone that was no longer patched, even though it was still receiving mail. It was specifically the contact API that was changed. That phone also has problems with the calendar, but I don't think it is related to the patch. Will play with that some more and confirm. Also will check the developer site and see if they also changed the calendar API. Edit: calendar is unaffected.

    So my Pre 3 crashed last night, have been slowing reloading accounts, and of course have the "unknown error" issue. Am away from my main PC with Novacom, so trying to install directly on the Pre 3. After logging in and downloading the file, I get "Unable to open file" and "This file format is now supported". How do I install this patch? Without the main pc with webos quick install, I don't have Preware yet. Or Internalz.

    Is there a way to do it? Sorry if I'm missing something simple and obvious to those more savvy with this stuff...

    Unfortunately, you need either WOSQI or Internalz Pro. Even all of the other alternatives require one of those two or a PC with novaterm.

    Hmmm....well now I'm trying on my Touchpad which DOES have Internalz Pro. However when I open with Internalz Pro I get an error:
    "Patch installation failed.
    patch unexpectedly ends in middle of line
    /media/cryptofs/app/usr/bin/patch:**** Only garbage was found in the patch input.

    What am I missing...?

    It seems your patch does NOT conflict with frantids Google Calendar Sync Behaviors patch (Google Calendar Sync Behaviors patch) , at least it installed fine on my Pre 2 an TP. Just for those wondering.

    Perhaps also cross check this before Grabber, if you are still planning to insert calendar sync ssl patch.

    OMG...I think I love you. This fixed the final issue I was having with my new pre 3.

    for me it seems only whole new contacts sync. Changes in adress... do not sync with my devices atm. But this could be my devices probs only.


    And on Pre2 i have frantids advanced sync behaviours activated with an option to do this on contacts. Don't know if that is the problem. Perhaps frantid could clear this up.

    Try download the patch using PC then install it using WOSQI.

    It sounds like the patch did not download correctly.. did you download the forum attachment or the link to my website? Forum attachments don't download correctly on webOS devices, so you would have to download it from my website on-device. When you open the .patch file, what do you see?

    I think I see this too, but only for changes made on the device. I edited a phone# and added one to another contact, and they did not sync up to google, but I added a 2nd phone# to one of the contacts and it pulled it down, but did not push the changes made on-device.. Will have to do further investigation here. Unfortunately we don't know whether it was already doing this before 3/31 or not.
