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!

If anyone has twitter, htc opened the door for addressing this problem... Squeaky wheel and all that...
