Not getting email notifications on my N4 - and I think it's my own stupid fault!
The issue: I am not seeing any "new email" notifications my (stock) Nexus 4. Emails are being received. I can see them when I open Gmail and look. But the phone has stopped telling me "Hey, pal! You have new email!" No sound, no buzz, no icon in the notification bar, no nothing.
Additional oddness that seems related: When I toggle off the "auto sync" setting (or whatever it's called - the two curvy arrows chasing each other in a circle), and then toggle it back on again, I get a triangle'd "!" in my notification bar and a "Request Permission". But when I pull down the notification shade and click on that notification, nothing happens except that I'm a) returned to my home screen, and 2) that notification disappears. I'm not actually shown any information about what that request permission thing was all about.
How I suspect I may have caused this: I was impatient for my 4.3 update. And so I did the thing where one clears the "Google Services Framework" data. Except that, like a maroon, I accidentally cleared the data on "Google Play Services" instead, before noting my error and then clearing the "Framework" which did trigger the update. This mistake broke my Google Play for a bit (wouldn't let me update or install apps), but I fixed that by removing and re-adding my Google account from the phone.
So, lovely intelligent well-dressed Android Central folks: Did I bring this unpleasantness upon myself? And, more importantly, how might I fix it?
