One question:
On the nightly bind CM7 (161) , I've only make following steps

Quote:

4)
Go to the GPSFix2 folder on your SD card, then go to /data/gps/ and copy secgps file

Now go to to your phones root directory, and go to /data/gps and paste the secgps file in there


5)Now there are two other files to copy:

Go to the GPSFIX2 folder, then go to /system/bin/ and copy the AGPSD file

Go to the phones root directory and go to /system/bin/ and paste the AGPSD file in that directory

Lastly, go back to the GPSFIX2 folder, and go into /system/etc/ and copy the GPS file

Go to the phones root directory again, and go to /system/etc/ and paste the GPS file in there!

6)Now we need to copy the file from GPSD.ZIP (Make sure to unzip the file!!)

Copy the file from the GPSD folder, into: \system\vendor\bin\ the same way you did the other GPS Fix files.


7)Download AngryGPS file located here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...3&d=1310879457

8) Install ANGRYGPS.APK, once installed go to your apps and open up AngryGPS. Go to:

Settings - General Settings - Change Operation Mode from MSBASED to STANDALONE. Once done, hit the home key.


Non of the add. files from the 2 zip files was available.
GPS is working (but its need time to found the Satellites and look to them)

For what does I need another kernel?

The phone I currently have is a refurbished replacement of one that I broke. The GPS on the broken one always worked well but the GPS on the refurb never worked worth a crap. The process in the OP totally fixed my GPS issues. I'm on CM7 and am having AWESOME GPS service!! Thank you so much for posting this!!
