    Same here with BB 7.6.

    GPS worked fine, I didn't use the phone for a few hours and then GPS didn't work. Rebooting didn't help. I also noticed the keyboard and capacitive button's backlight had also stopped working.

    Went back to plain rooted 2.01.

    Everything else works better than ever that I can't consider going back to stock yet as I don't use many GPS apps, but i would like to if I needed to.

    0.7.7, 0.7.8 and 0.7.9 are now out - I'd try fixing with a newer build.

    FWIW, 0.7.7 has JIT enabled, 0.7.8 removes it, and then 0.7.9 uses a newer kernel (if I am reading it correctly).

    Give one of them a shot.

    I still have BB 0.7.6 installed, and GPS is indeed not working correctly, so I am off to do BB 1.0 and see if it makes a difference. Might look into that as an alternative to the BB 0.7.x series.
