GPS not working on *ANY* ROM

    I don't know if this issue is linked to rooting, but it has occured since I rooted...

    As of this morning, it seems that none of my apps that would usually use GPS are using it (Aloqa, Trapster, GPS Speedo, and of course Google Maps). Over the course of the morning I've been rolling back on nandroid backups, even as far as going back to the stock ROM, where I definitely know it was working before. I've also tried rebooting with GPS set on or off, reflashing ROMs, but to no avail.

    (I'm basing this on the lack of a GPS symbol in the notifications bar when the apps are running. Settings claims GPS is on)

    When I first noticed this morning, I was running MoDaCo 3.2

    Any help/ideas would be much appreciated!

    Have you tried re-flashing the "RADIO" ROM?

    I haven't, given the risks of bricking my phone, but by the looks of it I might have to.

    Does anyone know, would a soft- or hard-reset help? How do I go about those (or have I done so when I installed ROMs etc.)?

    I went from 2.1 to Madaco3.2. I needed to reflash the latest radio ( even though it already had it ) and it started working absolutely fine again. Good ROM that Modaco

    EDIT: With regard bricking your phone by redoing the radio, just make sure there's plenty of battery power beforehand.

    And it doesn't behave exactly like flashing a ROM. I think it will reboot before it flashes. So don't be tempted to pull the battery out if it appears to be taking a while to boot.

    Yeah, this very nearly got me. I had my heart in my mouth when I saw a logo of a box with an arrow coming out of it, next to a phone.

    All fixed now though! Radio update was just right Still curious as to why it suddenly decided to drop out on me though, any theories?
