    Ever since i upgraded to Gingerbread I can't use my GPS. It keeps saying "Searching for GPS." I've researched several forums, change the setting in Angry GPS but that hasn't helped.

    Here's what I've done so far to resolve the issue:
    1. Rooted the phone and tried the h3llstorm

    I use mtcarey's corn kernel 7.06, and this: (http)://forum(dot)xda-developers(dot)com/showthread.php?t=1493695
    I get a lock instantly, indoors or out. Fixed my GPS issues, and I can keep gingerbread...that is until some of the ICS bugs are ironed out a little bit more. Hope this helps.

    I could flash using the zip file. I get E: Signature Verification failed error message.

    Use the kernel I specified. I have absolutely no problems with flashing a .zip. It's a part of the kernel. It has cwm installed.

    I was able to flash using corn kernel 7.06. Will test the GPS tomorrow morning and post results. Thanks!

    Was able to upgrade to ICS with Corn Kernel. GPS on ICS works like a Champ.
