Alternate Way to Sync Google Contacts, Calender, and Mail
« on: October 24, 2010, 08:51:51 PM »
For people who want to sync their Google Contacts, and Mail to iDroid but know of the hassel of getting Google Apps to work.  Well here's a solution for you, it's actually the same procedure you use to get Google Synced in iOS.
  • Goto Settings -> Accounts & Sync
  • Tap Add Account
  • In the email field, enter your full Google email address, then your password at the next field, then tap Next.
  • Leave the \<username> in the Domain\Username field alone, and in the server field input m.google.com
  • It'll do a check of Incoming Server Settings, and present several options of what to sync, and how frequently to sync it. Tap Next when you're done.
  • Give a name of your new Exchange account, and hit Done.
Congratulations, you now are synced with Google Contacts, Mail, and Calender. :)

This topic does not discuss how to install ringtones, but how to configure iDroid to connect to Google Setvices using the Microsoft Exchange method.
