I know of one reason this definitely won't work, though you may be
encountering other problems too.  Since Evolution 3.2, the Evolution
conduits are nonfunctional due to the implementation of e_*_get_changes
being dropped from evolution-data-server
(  I'm not sure if
the developers were unaware the functions were still being used or just
didn't care.  I have a patch there that should restore the functionality
for the calendar, tasks, and memos, but not the address book.

Unfortunately, as much as I liked my trusty Sony Clié PEG-NX60, since it
looked like the maintenance burden was only going to keep growing, I
have taken the plunge to a new mobile PIM solution: aCal
( on my Android phone, synchronizing with
Evolution via a local instance of DAViCal (  My
maintenance efforts are now focused here.  To anyone still relying on
the gnome-pilot Evolution conduits, I offer my regrets and encourage you
to consider moving to this solution with me.  Please poke me to write a
how-to and release my fixes to aCal.  (aCal, like Evolution, has a lot
of functionality but is very buggy.  DAViCal seems solid so far.)
