    I've got a desire on orange which I debranded using the ROM on here, all fine until I installed the latest upgrade which killed the wi-fi.

    I reflashed it and the GPS didn't seem to work.

    To make sure it wasn't the software I used a later ROM from the XDA Developers forum, this upgraded the radio ROM to a point my Orange mobile couldn't cope with so I bought an unlock code which got the phone working. The phone is currently running1.21.405.2

    I downloaded GPS Test from the Marketplace and it sees no satellites.

    I've ticked Settings/Location/Use GPS satellites am I missing another setting?

    Is there anything it could be software wise? Or is the GPS on my phone physically knackered?

    I've now got everything just how I want it but no GPS (which I would like to use).

    Thats normal for that update to kill wifi on orange branded phones, not got that problem with gps myself or seen any others with it either. Try doing a factory reset & see if that clears the problem

    Thanks Anoniemouse, tried that last night and no difference.

    Does anyone know is there a seperate ROM for the GPS that I can push to the phone?
