CyanogenMod: Google account is not being synchronized

Sync disabled

Sync disabled

Shortly after I got my XPERIA Mini Pro, I installed CyanogenMod on it and have been quite satisfied with it. But as of a recent update – I don’t know which exactly – my accounts (like Google and Facebook) didn’t synchronize anymore. The sync icon in the options of the different accounts was greyed out, but unlike before, there was no longer any button/switch to turn synchronization on. Tapping the sync icon itself didn’t lead anywhere either.

After some searching, during which I found that many others have this problem, too, I discovered a forum post that explains how the synchronization can be enabled again:

Enable sync

Enable sync

  1. go to “System settings” » “Data usage”
  2. tap the menu button
  3. set the checkmark for “Auto-sync data”

Sync enabled

Sync enabled

Now the sync icon should be shinig in bright green again on all accounts, and the data will be synced again. While I do find this change a little bit strange, the important thing is that it’s working again for the time being!
