Any way to sync ePub DRM books across devices?

Has anyone *successfully* been able to get ePub DRM books to sync across multiple Android devices? I have a phone and tablet, and I'm able to check out Kindle and ePub books from my library. I've been using Overdrive for the ePub books and read on my phone during the day and my tablet at night, but I still can not find any combination of eReader and cloud device to sync. I've tried using Dropbox to sync the ePub file since I couldn't find where the bookmarks are stored, but no luck there.

I'd prefer not to covert or strip the DRM via Calibre. I've heard Aldiko used to be able to do this via dropbox, but I can't find a 2.1 apk. The only promising app I have yet to try is Mantano, which uses a paid cloud service to sync. I'd like to exhaust all free versions first. Any suggestions?

Mantano Reader offers cloud storage that provides this feature (I think it is a small annual fee). But this is Android only.

Txtr also provides cloud storage (free) and I think that handles sync as well. They also have apps for iOS, Mac, PC. They are the same people that have the weird Beagle ereader that tethers to your phone.

You can find Aldiko 2.1 version on the Aptoide market: www.aptoide.com, you then need "Aldiko sync" app to sync (uses Dropbox). Works a charm but don't let Aldiko update once you've installed it...
Aldiko Sync is a paid app but only a one time 1.99$ cost.
