Nothing visual or option wise, as I see it.It does seem to load up quicker & be a bit more responsive to input. Downloads seem to be smoother & quicker as well,but,all of this can vary from each individuals phone & data signal strength.

I just installed it and it will display... but it flickers alot... I'm OC@710mhz I'm betting it needs a faster processor and a seperate GPU

EDIT... dropped cpu back to 600mhz, and it still ran the same way... so I'm gonna say seperate GPU android needed...

It won't run on my Huawei at all, just the blank screen. Oh well. I have Cribbage Pro which does just fine.

I do have a huawei ascend and I don't use a battery saving app because it causes the phone to freeze for a second or two. I use android assistance(17 features) for my battery monitoring, but the android assistance(17 features) helps out more than just monitoring the battery. Check out android assitance(17 features). It might help you out.

They all suck to be honest.That one app will waste more battery life trying to kill apps and services that will restart on their own then the apps and services running on their own.

Default Speed Up Satelite Fix for GPS on Android

Searched this in the android forum and did not find it...

This is a file mod, not an app, but I think it still belongs here... if not please move it to the proper forum... Thanks...

I did this to my M860 and it worked like a dream!! I edited the gps.conf file from my phone, I did not download it from the provided link that is below...

Here is what is contained in mine... it does not contain as much data as the one provided in the quoted post below, but it was from my phone and all that needed editing was at the top...

Code:
NTP_server=0.north-america.pool.ntp.org 
NTP_server=1.north-america.pool.ntp.org
NTP_server=2.north-america.pool.ntp.org
NTP_server=3.north-america.pool.ntp.org
NTP_server=0.us.pool.ntp.org
NTP_server=1.us.pool.ntp.org
NTP_server=2.us.pool.ntp.org
NTP_server=3.us.pool.ntp.org
XTRA_SERVER_1=http://xtra1.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_2=http://xtra2.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_3=http://xtra3.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
# Intermediate position report, 1=enable, 0=disable
INTERMEDIATE_POS=0
# Accuracy threshold for intermediate positions 
# less accurate positions are ignored, 0 for passing all positions
# ACCURACY_THRES=5000
# Wiper (wifi positioning), 1=enable, 0=disable
# ENABLE_WIPER=1
################################
##### AGPS server settings #####
################################
# FOR SUPL SUPPORT, set the following
# SUPL_HOST=supl.host.com or IP
# SUPL_PORT=1234
# FOR C2K PDE SUPPORT, set the following
# C2K_HOST=c2k.pde.com or IP
# C2K_PORT=1234
This is not my work, found it over at xda...

Guys,

I decided to write this because a lot of us here still facing GPS issue on their device. I almost give up on my HTC Desire HD because of the GPS problem. After I find this trick, now I realized that HTC devices have one of the most brilliant GPS hardware. It always get a location lock within 5 - 15 seconds.

This trick not only to speedup the satelite fixing. Some also found that it increase the reception (strong signal even during cloudy, light raining, and inside building's window). I am one of this case .

Here is the tricks. It is tested on HTC desire HD, SGSII, and speculated to work on most Android device (Please note that it is in sequential order):






Requirements:
  • Rooted Device
  • File Manager: e.g. Root Explorer

1. Searching for NTP server information
  • At the right side of webpage, there is "Active Servers". Go in and look for the setting of your 1)region and 2)country
  • For example, one's region is Europe then you write down the NTP server for that: 0.europe.pool.ntp.org; 1.europe.pool.ntp.org; 2.europe.pool.ntp.org; 3.europe.pool.ntp.org
  • Then the servers for your country from the list down there and click the link(Example: Switzerland — ch.pool.ntp.org; 0.ch.pool.ntp.org; 1.ch.pool.ntp.org; 2.ch.pool.ntp.org; 3.ch.pool.ntp.org
  • The "Italic" words are the information you need to jot down for later use








3. Modify the gps.conf file (Most Crucial Stage)
  • Download Modified gps.conf file from http://logfile.x10.mx/ to your device / OR As a alternative way, you can copy the codes in grey box (in first post) to a notepad, then change the extension name from .txt to .conf then copy to your phone
  • Use file manager to copy to this location: /etc/gps.conf and replace the original gps.conf
  • Open and Edit the gps.conf using rootexplorer or others file managers
  • Change the COUNTRY and REGION in following lines with the info you got from the website just now. Keep other values unchange unless you know what it is. Example of REGION such as NorthAmerica, Asia, Africa, Europe.
  • Your new gps.conf should look as below:
NTP_SERVER=COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=0.COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=2.COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=0.REGION.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.REGION.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=2.REGION.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.REGION.pool.ntp.org

XTRA_SERVER_1=http://xtra1.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_2=http://xtra2.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_3=http://xtra3.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin

# DEBUG LEVELS: 0 - none, 1 - Error, 2 - Warning, 3 - Info
# 4 - Debug, 5 - Verbose
DEBUG_LEVEL =0

# Intermediate position report, 1=enable, 0=disable
INTERMEDIATE_POS=0

# Accuracy threshold for intermediate positions
# less accurate positions are ignored, 0 for passing all positions
ACCURACY_THRES=0

# Report supl ref location as position, 1=enable, 0=disable
REPORT_POSITION_USE_SUPL_REFLOC=1

# Wiper (wifi positioning), 1=enable, 0=disable
ENABLE_WIPER=1

################################
##### AGPS server settings #####
################################

# FOR SUPL SUPPORT, set the following
SUPL_HOST=supl.google.com
SUPL_PORT=7276
SUPL_NO_SECURE_PORT=3425
SUPL_SECURE_PORT=7275
SUPL_TLS_HOST=FQDN
SUPL_TLS_CERT=/etc/SuplRootCert

# FOR C2K PDE SUPPORT, set the following
C2K_HOST=c2k.pde.com
C2K_PORT=1234

CURRENT_CARRIER=common
DEFAULT_AGPS_ENABLE=TRUE
DEFAULT_SSL_ENABLE=FALSE

# TRUE for "User Plane", FALSE for "Control Plane"
DEFAULT_USER_PLANE=TRUE

  • Make sure the permission of the file is rw-r--r--
4. Reboot
  • Go setting, turn on your "use GPS satelites" and "Integrate Google Navigation"
  • Restart the device (normal restart)[/B]
5. Use GPS status and Toolbox
  • Tool available in market for free, please donate so developers are encouraged for better release in the future[/B]
  • Open app> tools> manage A-GPS state>Reset
  • Open app> tools> manage A-GPS state>Download
  • Optional restart device (not compulsory)
  • Use GPS status to start fixing satelites
  • Your satelite fixing speed should VERY FAST now
  • After get a successul GPS Lock, open your GPS applications and use like normal (e.g. Copilot, Sygic, or TomTom)
Extra Suggestion: Please make sure your GPS is enabled before your device is turnoff or restart. It won't actually use GPS unless you open map-related app or google.com.

CAUTION!!!: DO NOT use fasterfix after this. It will overwrite all the content in gps.conf


Credits: Thanks for JMax and Vault Killer for the gps.conf file
WARNING: Please do backup before messing with your device
Do it at your own risk, I cannot be held resposible for any damage or dysfunctional of your device

These days, the only apps I really use for flashing are CWM (Bootstrap on the X2) and AppExtractor. ROM Toolbox is truly cool, too, but I don't need it. As far as I'm concerned, those 3, along with rooting apps, are the greatest things since sliced bread.
