    Alright, I'm having an issue with a location task not working properly. I've tried a bunch of stuff to get it to work and I feel that it is likely a root issue, but not certain.

    Battery Level 0-5%


    Secure Settings: Configuration - GPS Enabled
    Net: Wifi - Set On
    Wait - 30 Seconds
    Get Location: Source - Any, Timeout 240 seconds
    Send SMS: To - (whoever)
    Message: "It is %DATE at %TIME. My phone is located at: %LOC Battery Level %BATT"

    Stop Location: Any
    Secure Settings: GPS Disabled
    Net: Wifi - Set Off

    The phone is rooted. It's a Razr Maxx. I have Helper installed with Secure Settings. I have GPS checked. The issue I get is the text that is sent looks like this:

    "It is 20-03-13 at 17.59. My phone is located at: %LOC Battery Level 5"

    Why isn't it getting a location with all that time available?

    What value is the %LOC returning? Look in your variables tan after you test the task

    I'm not getting any variables listed in the variable tab actually.

    Why not just use "phone>cell near"?

    Try testing with GPS enabled and without using Secure Settings- %LOC is the default value of the variable when not populated so it looks as though the enabling of GPS is what's failing.
