I have success!!
The rain finally stopped so I could leave the prime outside for a while.
I first left it off for about 15 mins then went outside and turned it on with the wifi off ...
after about 5 mins it had 1 satellite in view but no fixes...
after about 10 mins it had 2 satellites in view but no fixes
it stayed like that for a while but I thought let me leave it...
after 20 mins with still 2 satellites I thought let me turn wifi on, it connected to the wifi and I left it again...
came back after 15 mins and BOOM 12 in view and 10 fixed so amazed and happy .
so after all that I tried it indoors after a little while and it worked as well .. got a fix within 15 seconds indoors 10 of 11 sats... really happy with that.
First pic is outdoors, second is indoors.
I applied the patch on my DHD and it seems to be worse off now.. was getting fixes within 10 - 13 seconds but now it takes about 30 - 50 seconds hopefully it settles down soon like the prime did after a while.
I really cant thank you enough for all the time and effort and the patch... dont think I would need a dongle now as it seems to be quicker and seeing more satellites then the DHD now.. but hopefully I can get to the bottom of that.
Update: I thought let me try reboot and see if it all still works and its now not as good as above after the boot... taking about 1.5 to 2 mins to get a fix outdoors and not really locking on indoors well it locks for about 1 seconds then drops *sigh* what is happening :S could it be that im in Australia and need diff settings in your patch? also would it matter if wifi is on or off?
