No GAPPS Setup Guide - Step 3: Contacts and Calendar Sync

With regards to setting up contacts and logbook adjust on your No GApps gadget, there are a couple of various ways you can go about it. Here are the techniques I have found. 

Option 3.1: Syncing with Google

This alternative in all probability applies to the individuals who are hoping to go NO GAPPS for enhancing battery life, as those hoping to make tracks in an opposite direction from utilizing Google administrations will more probable need to run with Option 3.2: Syncing with another DAV supplier. 

Option 3.1.1: Using the Google synchronize connectors (microG) 

The way that the official Google applications synchronize contacts and timetables are through the adjust connectors, which are separate applications from the Play Services and require a usage of the Play Services to be introduced. 

The initial step is to procure the GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk and GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk documents. Maybe the most straightforward approach to do this is to go to the OpenGapps site and download the "pico" variation for your Android rendition and gadget design. I suggest the pico variation since it contains the least applications and has the connectors we are searching for. 

Open the compress record you downloaded and separate these two documents (ways with respect to the base of the file): 

  • GApps/calsync-all.tar.lz 

  • Center/googlecontactssync-all.tar.lz 

On the off chance that you are running Windows or conceivably Mac, you will require the program 7-Zip to open these two tar.lz files. Linux clients should as of now have bolster for these documents in their file administrator. If not, ensure you have the p7zip bundle introduced. 

Within these documents, a couple of envelopes down, are two .apk records. Both of these ought to be introduced on your Android framework under the/framework/application index, each in their own particular subdirectory. Something like this: 

  • /framework/application/GoogleContactsSyncAdapter/GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk 

  • /framework/application/GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter/GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk 

As an elective technique for introducing, there is a flash on the downloads page that introduces them for you. 


Option 3.1.2: Using DAVDroid

For the individuals who don't wish to introduce Google programs on their gadget yet need to keep synchronizing their contacts with Google, there is a method for utilizing the open source application DAVDroid to synchronize your contacts with Google utilizing an uncommon URL.
