NemusSync Failure to Sync with Error Domain=GoogleAccounts Code=-1

After upgrading my iPhone to firmware 2.2, I had a problem with NemusSync. Everytime I try to sync, I received an error message “Failure to Sync” then the error code “Error Domain=GoogleAccounts Code=-1”. After scouring the web I found that I had to delete 1 file. Just to be safe, I actually move the file.

The file that needs to be removed is/var/mobile/Library/Calendar/Calendar.sqlitedb. There are some sites that talk about changing the permission, but I have not tried that. If you want to try changing the permission, you should try changing it by running the command chown mobile:mobile /var/mobile/Library/Calendar/Calendar.sqlitedb

NOTE:If you have calendar events on your phone that you haven’t sync to GCal, it will be erased after removing the Calendar.sqlitedb. Also after you move the file, you will need to run the calendar apps at least once.

[HOWTO] Grab MP3 From Youtube FLV File

First of all, youtube shows video clips and not audio clips. When you grab a file from YouTube it’s usually an .FLV file. You may grab it from online services like or use applications similar to TubeTV. The FLV is a video file and we need to grab the audio portion of it. The software I use is call iExtractMP3. This software feature a drag and drop and single button clicking to extract (NOTE: I emphasize the term because the software uses extraction method rather than re-encode the audio. This results in higher quality audio since whatever the poster put, this is the same file you get).

Alternatively, there’s also another file conversion service offered by Zamzar. I have not used the service before, but it seems that the process is simply point the URL to the video that you want and you’ll receive the link for the audio.
