Can't sign in to Opera account on Android app: "Temporary server error. Please try again later."

  • But here's the problem, although the browser is signed in, it doesn't sync anything with my other devices signed in to that account

    It belongs to another topic.

  • re: 3 posts up from this one:

    Some good news to report, possibly helpful to others who are having difficulty logging in. First, some background: I live in China, behind the 'great firewall', so Google websites are all blocked. Now the good news: Using a VPN, I went to Playstore and downloaded the latest version of Opera for Android, version 4.3, not the Beta, fyi. I was then able to successfully log in to Opera AND sync my bookmarks by using the Google log in option. In other words, problem solved. Not sure if that helps anyone, but if you're having problems logging in to Opera, try logging in through Google. For whatever reason, it worked.

  • I found a workaround. Find an old device that has opera installed and you are still signed in to to. Make a backup of the app and its data with an app like Titanium backup. And then go to your newer device and restore the app and its data there. Now you have an opera install that is signed in to your opera account. 😃 Good luck!

  • I spoke too soon. It isn't actually syncing. Sorry!

  • Actually it is syncing. You just cant be using the two devices at the same time. Only one of them has working syncing when doing it this way. I'm guessing I copied over some identifier that needs to be unique. But At least I figured out it's possible to sign in and that it's not a "server error".

    My guess is that the opera app generates a identifier for the device and sends it to the server when signing in through the app. On newer android versions that identifier doesn't look like the server expects it to and the server just throws back a generic error message.

    Of-course if you log one device out you log them both out. 😃
