I find a loto of examples suggesting to use notifyDataSetChanged but it has no effect. Maybe I choose the wrong place to put it.

Any suggestions ?

One solution would be to have the ListAdapter register a listener with the data source so that whenever the data source is modified, it would call the listener, and the listener would then call the notifyDataSetChanged method.  For example:

One problem is the you are calling your update method on a new instance of MainActivity, rather than the launched MainActivity instance:
If you want to involve the MainActivity in updating the list view, then pass AsyncTask a reference to use to inform the MainActivity that the list data set has changed.  Here's an example:
