I did this hack, and it indeed fixed all the GPS issues!!
It was a little harder than it should have been. First, the built in file browser wouldn't even look in the root directory. So I installed my favorite file app (Asto); it would look there, but wouldn't right. So I tired Root File Manager, but it kept crashing. Finaly I tried Root Browser, and that one suscessfully copied the config file to the required directory.
Thanks agian Titanic_Fanatic!
