I'd like to share my blog post on the subject. Forum threads have some helpful info but are incomplete and hard to follow, so I documented my steps on degoogling my Gemini in hope they will be of use to others

Hi guys,

I've been trying to de-goggle my machines (Gem and now Cosmo) along the way,
but without any other choice, I was still relying on Goggles' Contacts and
Calendar server functionality...

Sooo... I was trying to see if there's anyway to sync to them without
actually having to get the entire system logged in. Some sync client
like CalDav or so on which could exchange the data without selling my
phone's soul.

The only one I found claiming to do it are "CalDAV-Sync"/"CardDAV-Sync" for
$3 each.... http://dmfs.org/

I found another Cal sync app on F-Droid, but it's apparently deprecated (no

Anyone? Anything else?

Thanks in advance,

DAVx5 https://f-droid.org/en/packages/at.bitfire.davdroid/

I've been using it for a while, replacing CalDAV-Sync/CardDAV-Sync.

I use hosted nextCloud instance from OwnDrive for Contacts, Calendar and Notes sync. I also use them for file sharing and sync. I use the free version which gives 1GB storage. If I ever needed more than that I'd happily pay the €2 / month for the extra.

Hope that helps
