    Any Android 1.6 ROM which I installed, GPS not working.
    I've tried all ROMs found:
    I7500XEFJB2, EJC1, EJC2, EJC4, EJC5, EJC6.
    With GPS test program I have 0 satellite in view, 0 in use

    With 1.5 ROMs GPS works perfectly
    I do not know what's wrong

    Your GPS test program isn't compatible with Android 1.6 perhaps?

    Ah, you didn't say that.

    Have you tried going back to 1.5 at any point after you went to 1.6? What I'm getting at is, are you sure that it still works with 1.5 now, or did it just stop working and you're attributing that to a 1.6 upgrade when it's simply broken?

    Now if I roll back to 1.5 ROM, gps works perfect. With 1.5 if I upgrade to galaxo or simple 1.6 ROM my gps is broken. gps icon blink in status bar, but no satellite in view.

    Right now if I install any 1.5 ROM, gps is work

    I just finished installing i7500XXII5 1.5 . I test gps and works perfectly. I found 6 satellites in 10 seconds.

    Now if I install again 1.6 ROM, I can put my phone in clear sky, after 2 hour no satellite found.

    I install again galaxo one weeks ago and my gps is working :|
    I think I found the problem, disable Use wireless networks and Share with Google. I'm not sure that's the problem but my gps goes well.
    I don`t install geolocalisation fix.
    Instead battery consume very fast, maybe is "no sleep" bug ?

    I check battery history:
    Running: 92.0 %
    Screen on: 16 %
    Phone on: 0.5 %
    Wifi on: 5.9 %

    So ....is no sleep bug ?

    That means I must install Geolocalisation fix.
    I hope my gps will be ok after install this fix.
    I guess after fixing no sleep bug, Running percentage must be more little.

    DaSchmarotzer Blame it on me

    Of course it is, your phone has been running for 92% of the time, whilst its screen was on only 20% of the time. When the screen isn't on, the phone should be sleeping most of the time.

    I suggest waiting a few days, Galaxo will be released soon and the no sleep bug is fixed in it.
