You need to do a data clear via the restore menu. That will get rid of the sync icon.and the sycn icon is permanently in my notification bar. Force stopping the "contactsync" app/process is a very temporary fix, but it comes right back. Weird.

I had the sync icon bug when the first gingerbread leak came out and the only thing that fixed it was wiping user data/cache. I am pretty sure my apps downloaded again from the market when I set up my phone with my google account.
That sync icon will draw down you battery quicker, it's trying to sync data all the time.
wq43ui - did all your free apps come back automatically? I've heard all the paid apps will come back, but all the free ones are gone. All your settings, passwords, bookmarks, everything will be gone.
I haven't done the full reset yet, I've must left the icon there and keep an eye on the battery level.
forgot to add that all your setting will come back, even the wallpaper that you were using, except for assigned tones and i think passwords but not to sure on that.
That's good to know. All my apps I have are freebys, so if they all come back that would be awesome.
I've been running GB since Thursday with no issues at all except for the sync icon stuck on. I'm planning on doing the full restore today, so I'm hoping all the apps are restored and maybe just have to put my passwords and settings back in for email.
