Instructions for adding it are in the "GTK sync-UI" section of the
After updating the phone's firmware I used syncevo-phone-config
it's painfully slow:
The first 54 configs need roughly 2 seconds each for testing; the

With test 55/1188 it seems to actually work. The following message is
printed on the display: "Synchronizing, sending contacts" and
afterwards the phone beeps like "success".
But from that point on, on the phone nothing happens. The script seems
to freeze, but goes on awefully slowly: It takes about 5 minutes to
