updated to froyo (EB13) and calendar doesnt sync
so i just updated to froyo via the manual update method for EB13, and now my google calendar won't sync. it acts in every way like it syncs successfully, but none of the events come over. I checked and all of my calendars that i want to have synced are set for it, and ive tried resetting the device, manually syncing, and it doesn't seem to work. I also rooted, but this was after i noticed the problem with no events.
Any one else see this and/or know what it could be or what i could do/try?

For anyone who doesn't know how to clear the calendar storage, follow these steps:
1) Go to Settings
2) Select Applications
3) Select Manage applications
4) Select Calendar Storage from the All list
5) Select Clear Data
After that, try syncing your calendar again. It should work fine. As a side note, I'm pretty sure this method will delete any events saved in your local calendar, so use caution.

Wow, this worked! This is great, thank you very much!
However, both my Facebook Birthdays and Facebook Events are still missing.
Anyone find a fix for this yet?
EDIT: Scratch that, my FB Events are showing... But before I could also see my FB contacts' birthdays and it would show with their FB profile pic and a FB logo that looked like the SnS app one and not the FB app one (does that make sense, has anyone noticed under Accounts how they are different?).

I was only sync'ing my contacts through the FB app and not through Samsung's SnS service.
It seems like only the Samsung SnS service syncs FB contacts birthdays.
Now if I could figure out why when I select the picture from the FB app as the default for a contact's caller ID it doesn't show when calling/texting, I'd be almost set.

Keisham320, for what it is worth, I actually had to reset the phone to remove and re-enter my gmail account in order to get the calendar working again. After the reset, everything was fine.
If you do this, back up everything first - memos, text, voicemail & free apps, are all lost. Documents, pictures, and paid apps seemed to come back.

Thanks... I cleared my storage and it worked.
Now if only there was a way for the Facebook events I decline not to show up on my calendar. I don't want to make it so FB doesn't show up because I like to see my friend's birthdays on the calendar.
(this has always been an issue, it isn't new with Froyo)
