Few months ago, I restored a full Nandroid backup which was created few hours ago. When I booted up, everything went fine, but Gmail & Google+ went out of sync. Perhaps, it was a timestamp problem.
Problem was this: If I read an email on web, the read status was reflected to app, but reverse wasn't true. If I read an email on app, the read status wasn't reflected to web or other devices/apps.
The exactly same thing was with Google+ notification read status.
I cleared data of Gmail app and the problem was fixed. I did the same thing with Google+ app, but no benefit. I even uninstalled & reinstalled the Google+ app, but again no benefit.
I left that for months. I have notified Google, updated to every new version, but the problem is still here even today.
How to fix it? Don't suggest factory reset, please.
Device: Samsung Galaxy S with ICS (rooted)
