PM4A sync server address

Unread postby troypulk » Tue, 27 Dec 2016, 02:11

I flashed my phones ROM and updated it to Android 7.1.1 now after I re-downloaded PM 25.9.6 from the Google play store I went to re-sync but it's not connecting.

I went into the manual setup and put my Account name, password and the recovery key and pressed connect, it failed and said to put in a valid URL server address.

I put: https://pmsync.palemoon.net but it still failed so I checked the status and it says it's running.

Is this not the proper way to re-sync a phone?

Thanks

Please try re-syncing using the "easy setup" method (12-character code) to link it to your desktop.

Also, the URL has to be:

Code: Select all

Thanks,

When I first did this I saw the "advanced setup" and it contained my key so I was under the impression that was the way to go.

You're right the (12-character code) is the easiest way, I'm not sure why I didn't do that in the first place, maybe I thought that this was why there is a recovery key in the first place. :mrgreen:

Well, as the name suggests, the recovery key is there to be able to set up your sync account and get your data if you don't have access to previously-synced devices ;)
