I take no credit on this Fix. I just happened to find it and was astounded in the change in performance and thought I would share it here. After applying Mitch0115 Fix I was getting 11/11 sat indoors with 5 M accuracy. YMMV

Original thread is hear http://rootzwiki.com/topic/21453-opt...xy-nexus-cdma/

Not this is different than the AGPS patch already posted here on XDA. I had tried that one and did not get anywhere near as good of results.

Please give Thanks to Mitch0115 and also let's hear your results.

My Results this morning indoors:


EDIT: This FIX is mainly for US users. However it may work for you. Some users have reported it working in other areas. YMMV Not sure if the file can be edited to use other country servers or not.

It adds more info onto the GPS.conf

Makes a good difference , and some people like to use apps that require Google location services.

I want to try how my gps status is. I have installed the gps status app but dont understand anything. What results are good what results are bad? Can you teach me please? For example it says in fix/sats section 0/7 and i think this is bad?
