Password Change on Google Apps Account

    I recently changed my password on my Google Apps account. Figured that my Thunderbolt would prompt me to enter my new password.

    Well, that didn't happen. Everything I'm reading says I need to do a factory reset. I'm alright with resetting my phone, but since it's rooted, I'm not sure if I need to be aware of other ramifications.

    I'm using the free version of Titanium Backup, and do not have a custom ROM. (yet)

    Just giving advice that worked for me. From everything I know about Google, the password you use for the Google Play Market is the same for your Gmail account.

    I would suggest that you go into setting, Account Sync, and force a sync. That should cause an error, and from the error, you should be able to change your password.

    Just a suggestion.

    Thanks for the reply

    That's exactly what I expected. Google Play though didn't work yesterday (just gave an error when I went to install something), it's working fine now. GMail doesn't sync, but returns no errors, GTalk throws an Authentication error. Google Plus works w/out trouble. The more I think about it, the more I think there's some deeper problem here.

    I changed my Google Apps password and I can't get my mail to sync.

    The Play Store uses your google mail password. Go into your mail then accounts and then gmail and set your password correctly there. I hope this helps and thanks for using AF.
