    Just fyi it appears that GPS doesn't work on the latest update M11.

    It does work on M10 as discussed here

    http://androidforums.com/virgin-mob...-root/871850-no-gps-after-cm11-installed.html

    I was using nightlies post M10 and at some point the GPS got broken in them so I had to go back to M10. Alas it seems it's still broken in M11 :/ unless there's just something weird about my phone.

    For me the symptons are it'll lock if holding completely still, but as soon as you move it can't lock to save its life.

    Not sure about your phone. But I went from M10 to M11 with no GPS issues. I did perform a dirty flash.

    OP did you dirty flash over a nightly or do a clean install?

    I'm also having GPS issues after a dirty flash. And the updater will not allow me to download any other version of CM so I can go back and try a clean install

    Have you tried one of the M11 nightlies? There have been five releases since the snapshot I think.

    Is GPS Confirmed working with an m11 dirty flash over m10?

    My phone is still functional with GPS. I dirty flashed M11 on top M10. I used it today.

    The only other mod I have is Xposed running two modules NFC LockScreenOff and XBlast Tools for the changing of carrier text.

    no but it's been broken in nightlies for me since back in Sept I've tried many. I'll give it another month and maybe try again.

    I'm fine with M10 just hoping this gets fixed at some point before it gets too far along.

    My impression is we're considered a bastard child in effect and not really supported in official CM for d2lte, or I'd try to submit a bug report.

    From my understanding GPS broke right around when the Boost/Credo/FreedomPop/Ting/Virgin apn's were added to cm.

    I just saw someone said when they flashed m11, GPS worked but of course no data. Then when flashing the APN fix, got data but that's when GPS stopped. Not sure if its true but it sounded interesting.

    I have also read this over in the apn fix thread. From my experience of being lost with broken gps, I could get a signal but would loose it instantly when I started driving. I would do a back up and play around but I don't feel like leaving the house to test it.
