Blackberry Curve and a True Syncronization


Has anyone come up with a true synchronization package for the Blackberry 8830 Curve.
I was playing around with it a little while ago and it was still in its infantile stages.
This worked like a charm but for a a standard user this would be extremely tedious.

and

http://www.linuxjournal.com/magazine...ndows?page=0,2

I basically added all the packages that had to due with syncing like:

OpenSync(includes msynctool)
opensync-plugin-barry
opensync-plugin-barry-dbg
opensync-plugin-evolution
Barry
BarryBackup

and followed the instruction above and BAM. But there were some bumps in the road like. Once the sync locked up and when I attempted to resync it said something about Slow-sync and errored. I had to disconnect and tried it again and it duplicated all of my contacts and etc several times to the point I had to reset my blackberry. I did run Barrybackup before I did all of this and I did sync successfully before that. I also found some GUI front ends: Multisync0.90 and KitchenSync

that I have not tried because I was comfortable with the CLI but they are basically the samething but easier for a standard user if he can get by the config part and there are not any errors. With that been said has there been any progress on this project?
