Hey at least HTC can get the GPS to lock on sometimes. Asus designed a metal case that shields the Transformer prime GPS antenna so it can't receive a signal. Asus has a solution for the $500 + tablet. They removed GPS from the feature specs. LOL

I have upgraded my WIFI 16GB Flyer to HC using this guide:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1358758

Now I have:
HBOOT 6.11.1111
RADIO 3822.10.08.07_M

I was nable to get GPS working on official ROM 3.55.1114.31, so I decided to try
flashing LeeDroid 4.3 and after that Cool3D Honey v4. Also with no result

I have tried using FasterFix app and next AGPS patch from this thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1287941 (google no ssl version)

I've installed GPS Test app, go outside and have it on for 1 hour. Always 0 satelites in view, and all timers and clocks in this app also shows 00:00:00, only compass (heading) works.

Is my GPS broken for good? I have read here that problem is not holding fix, but I can't get it. My GPS even dont see any satelite :/

I've tried reseting and redownloading AGPS data few times, but no change in sattelite visibility - always 0. Tried using 2 apps for that - GPS TEST and GPS STATUS & TWEAKS with and without AGPS patch

Very weird. I think I have tried all the ROMs and GPS always finds lock , but after a few minutes it will lose it, but quickly re-acquire.

I like to use my Flyer for GPS so a ROM that works with GPS is a must, I have tried the new ICS and Leedroid HC with little success, will work for about 15min then lose signal and takes forever to lock back on...Only rom I found that GPS works on is Leedroid 2.2.0 GB. GPS seems to work perfect on it...I hope it will work on these new ICS roms!
