Not a dig on lionclaw. I was trying to do this exactly as shown in the directions, but as the others have said here, we get permissions errors. I found it was easier to use root explorer to navigate to the path: (This is assuming your device has already been rooted, if not you will need to accomplish this before proceeding)
1. create a copy and save it in a different folder. (it won't allow you to save in the same location). Rename the new copy to settings.bak Then move the settings.db back to the originating folder.
I used SQL Lite Editor (download from Android Market or web) to manipulate the settings:
navigate to Settings Storage (com.android.providers.settings)
tap on settings.db
tap on secure
tap on the menu button
tap new record
enter the "mock_location" for the name (no quotes)
enter "1" for value
You will need to reboot the Kindle Fire to allow it to take effect. Good luck to all!
I am running Kindle Fire with gedeROM v1.35 and while i have mock locations enabled in the ROM's settings, the tetherGPS client running, i am not receiving the location from my Droid4 which has a clear gps signal... Any ideas if this app even works on an ICS rom on kindle?
