Ugh ... why? So far so good.

If not, it's quite hassle to install Android SDK when I only to use "fastboot".

Yes.

Tested and definitely the GPS is now MUCH BETTER!!

I was panicked at first because after flashed, the power button didn't work.

Rebooted, still didn't work. I cannot put the phone to sleep using the power button.

But, after awhile it fixed itself.

Lot of reasons, but :
  • You can't see what they're doing
  • Causes lot sof support threads from people thinking they bricked
  • You don't learn the essential methods and tools needed to get you out of trouble
  • Promotes a lack of knowledge and takes a toll on this forum

There is a "rant" about it linked in the same thread of my signature if you want to see what 99% of those of us posting here, regularly helping think.

You don't need the SDK to use fastboot. Fastboot is very easy to use. You can simply install fastboot using the 15 second installer. Please have a read of my "adb and fastboot. What is it?" thread.

I know you only went in my thread to find the radios, but do have a look at the other info a guide threads there. Your world will open up.

Wow ... indeed ... that's easy installation.

I have done the trouble in the past with installing the whole SDK, then maintaining it.

It was too much hassle.

Not anymore with the info from your signature.

Thanks! big thanks!

No problem. Any time.

We definitely like to help people who are willing to learn, so respect to you for that!

It's much easier to help someone in trouble who is configured ahead of time and understand than it is to help someone in trouble who doesn't understand basic commands - this is why we (almost everyone) recommend fastboot (and adb in some cases) over toolkits.

Any adb or fastboot questions, please feel free to ask them in that thread.

Good good! And yea, you'll find sometimes the power button does that straight after boot up. I think it's just not finished completely booting yet
