I'm really sorry for the trouble this is causing! It sounds like the iPhone OS upgrade nuked your OmniFocus data, which isn't supposed to happen - that's definitely not normal, but apologies nonetheless.

Based on what you're describing, my guess - and this is only a guess - is that there's a typo in the user name or password for your swissdisk login, and OmniFocus is stuck in a loop using the bad login info.

I think there's an easier way to un-stick things - the support ninjas would know for sure - but I believe the following steps should resolve it as well.

In OmniFocus' settings screen, scroll down to the sync settings.
Tap "advanced", then enter "" into the "Location" field.
Tap "Done", then tap the sync button.

Your phone will attempt to contact our server for a sync; we'll prompt the phone to ask you for a new login and password.

Type in random gibberish for the user name and password - the point here is that we want our server to send you a 'bad password' response. (Do not type in the user name and password of the account you're actually trying to sync with; we could read that data.)

In any case, when the password sheet comes down a second time, tap "Cancel".
Switch the sync settings back to their normal values and start a sync.

You will be asked for the user name and password; you can now enter the new info you want OmniFocus to use.

Please do me a favor and contact the support ninjas about this, even if the above fixes the problem for you; there's a feature request I'd like to attach your email to. (And if I guessed wrong about what's causing your problem, they'll be able to get you back up and running.)
