k1 - browser won't sync

2012-02-12, 2:20 AM
I've been having problems syncing my browser with chrome. I try to sync and it doesn't bring anything over (bookmarks). I thought about reinstalling the browser but I would like to avoid a reset. Is there a way to just uninstall and reinstall just the browser?

The browser on the k1 isn't chrome. No sync. The chrome browser was just released for ICS, it isn't available for honeycomb. Try Chrome to phone to move your bookmarks. One at a time, slow and tedious but it works..

You can sync with the Honeycomb browser with your desktop Chrome browser.  However in my experience it was an ordeal to get it working properly and there's no easy way to tell what went wrong.

 

The sequence of steps that I had success with:

1. Backup your bookmarks.

2. Clear cache and data on your tablet browser

3. Launch chrome on your pc and make sure you are signed in: Options -> Personal Stuff -> Sign In

4. Disable sync on chrome: Options -> Personal Stuff -> Advanced...

5. Clear sync data on Google servers: https://www.google.com/dashboard/ -> login with account -> "Stop sync and delete data from Google"

6. Wait until data/sync data is cleared.

7. Re-enable sync in chrome's settings

8. Restart sync from the tablet browser settings

9. Wait for bookmarks to sync

 

Good luck.

Yeah, I tried all of that but it doesn't work.  The frustrating part is that is has worked for me and then one day it didn't and hasn't since then.  Nothing that I was doing changed other than when I ran a OTA.  That's the only thing I can think of.  What about other browsers?  I've tried Firefox but it's to slow.  Others?
