    Just updated today's gmail app update. The app opens and crashes. When I uninstall it then search and install the app on the App Store it installs the old version and works fine, but then prompts me to update to the new version. As soon as I update and then open the app it crashes. Ideas? iPhone 5s 7.0.6

    3.0, whatever was pushed a few hours ago.

    The current 3.0 shows pushed 46 mins ago. Thinking there may be an issue with different buggy versions. When I search the current version in the App Store it shows 3.0 but downloads a different version and then App Store prompts saying a newer 3.0 is available.

    No clue, mine prompted me for the update a few hours ago, used it a few times since then with no issue. Same version updated in iTunes as well (shows 3.0)

    Yeah. Seems to be multiple 3.0's out there. Will have to see what gets replaced.

    Why do you even need it? Install Push for Gmail if your jailbroken and use the Mail app. Works perfectly!

    I don't really use it. Lol, more of an annoyance.

    Plus if you read what push for gmail tweak requires is to open and stay logged into the gmail app.

    Another update: I have 2 jailbroken iPhones and the gmail 3.0 update crashes on BOTH of them. I have an iPad (also on 7.0.6 like the two iPhones) and the gmail 3.0 update works fine on it. Any ideas?

    Hi
    In my case, I've got an ipad air 7.0.4 with jailbreak and my gmaill app also crashes when I try to open it. Gmail version 3.0.2.
    The push notifications works great but I can't open de app. :(


    When I switch the ipad on in safe mode, the gmail app works right but when I reset in normal mode, gmail app crashes again and again.


    I guess this issue is connected with some of the tweaks I've previously installed, but I don't know how to discover the evil tweak.

    One idea: we could share the name and version of our installed tweaks, so maybe we find the tweak that is doing the crashes.

    Regards

    Alberto

    You have to be logged in on the Gmail app, but the Gmail app doesn't have to be running for "Push for Gmail" to work. Just a clarification.

    Still in the same boat, my GMAIL doesn't work. App opens. App crashes.

    Did you try in safe mode? In my case, works 100%

    yeah, ok. So, this issue is related with one of our installed tweak. Any idea?
    Which is the one we are looking for?

    safari downloader?
    ....

    ok, thank you
    In my opinion, before uninstalling and installing tweaks again, the best idea would be waiting for 2 or more list from other users.

    Waiting for other users...

    You may be waiting a while. This thread's been going a while and people think it's helpful to say "why do you even need the app?!!?"

    Ok, it's true that we have a lot of apps for managing gmail's accounts. Now, I'm using Boxer and works right. But I miss gmail app...:(:(
