    Currently running an asp rom.. I have not kept up aon all the info lately as I was waiting for the root process for the latest update.. I have since rooted my phone and played around with different roms and again find asop to be the way to go for myself..

    Previously you had to do the gps trick of restoring to a sense rom and then restoring back to an asop rom to get your gps working. But now there is the gapps file which does this for you.. However while running an asop rom my gps is not working. I.E. while driving and using a navagation app my phone constantly searches for a gps signal.. I have checked to ensure that I am picking up a signal using the app "gps test". And sure enough I pick up 10 to 13 satellites with a location accuracy with in 10 feet but while driving I never seem to pick up the signal.. Any ideas

    there is a new fix that seems to work well. you will need to download and flash the qualcomm drivers. you can get it here:[FIX][AOSP][MIUI] All GPS fixes! - xda-developers

    Just to make sure this Zip file is just simply a flashable zip done in recovery while running an ASOP rom

    Yep, good to see you back! And that is (I think) the file that fix'd gps for me. The updated qualcomm driver or whatever.... I was getting GPS locks right away. Even when I was just screwing around in GMaps ;) :D

    LOL i've been busy i guess.

    i have seen akazabam pop in from time to time. he just posted a few like 3 weeks ago. i have not seen him since. and evomatt i have not seen him here at all. most likely switched carriers by now.( i could be wrong). i know he was playing with his tablet quite a bit.

    Yeah, last I heard he didn't get kicked off (that was quite a while ago). He said he was at only 2GB roaming and then his cycle restarted... something like that.. I have the message somewhere...

    Well I Flashed the gps Zip.. Ill test it tomorrow..that is too easy if it works.

    Have you been running any roms that compare to the snap of any asop roms. ( I am not to sure but the size of the rom seems to greatly affect the responsiveness ) .. The version I am running now is so fast and never glitches...... I mean fast... My girlfriend just got a iphone. and it is quick but the OS is very ******ed. I am on the cusp of "jail braking" it. and to say the least the iphone "market" is a pain in the ass

    Unfortunitly Mr Ed was to late and although he did get me in the right direction most of the process was trial and error figured out by dooooooofusssss and I..... I just wish I had the original video I created as it was my first time and it was to say the least dope as hell
