    I recently updated my nexus 7 to jellybean 4.2.1. It was an OTA update. Since the update my device won't sync gmail/gtalk. I have to manually sync gmail to check for new mails, but no notification will appear. Problem with Gtalk is more weird. It will not sign me in and will display my status as offline.

    Looking for some serious help.

    No trouble with same configuration here; have you shut down and restarted?

    1. Make sure auto-sync is enabled. Settings > Data usage > menu (3 vertical dots at upper right) > checkmark in Auto-sync data.
    2. Settings > Google (under Accounts) > touch your Google account > checkmark each service you want synced.
    3. Go to Gmail, Inbox, menu (3 dots upper right), Manage labels. Additional settings for each service synced. Number of days to sync, notification options, etc.

    There are other ways of doing some of these things, but the important thing is to verify auto-sync is on. Some of the other options are not available if it is not on.
