JB Workaround CardDAV-Sync

Info for Samsung Galaxy S4 users: at present you'll need this app too, see http://developer.samsung.com/forum/board/thread/view.do?boardName=GeneralB&messageId=232748
The bug causes accounts of paid apps to be removed when Android boots up. To work around this issue this app pretends to provide the same account type that CardDAV-Sync provides. That's enough to convince Jelly Bean to keep the account.
That's all this app does.
Please open the app at least once from within Google Play to "enable" the workaround. It may not work properly otherwise. On some devices you'll have to install this app before you install CardDAV-Sync. Please try that if you still have problems.
Please note that the bug is in Android 4.1, not in CardDAV-Sync!
If you're not using CardDAV-Sync on Jelly Bean, you don't need this app. There is no need to give it a bad rating in that case! Please don't install it in that case.
Recently changed in this version:
The workaround now disables itself for a couple of seconds after booting the device. That ensures the original sync app can take over the account. That should fix all the issues with the stock editor.
- new in 1.4
Change disable/enable sequence
Allow workaround to be called from CardDAV-Sync. I hope that fixes all issues with removed accounts.
On shutdown the app ensures the workaround is enabled on the next start (hence the new permission)
