Default [Q] Help with GPS and ROMS

Hi, I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S 2 from Sprint. I have learned that on XDA this phone is called Samsung Galaxy S 4G. I am not a pro when it comes to rooting phones but I come from a EVO that I had rooted and flashed many roms. However my Galaxy S 2 has me stumped! I rooted it and it has not worked the way it should. I cant get my GPS to work on any ROM I have flashed. I have been through the forums, Google and anything else I could thing of. I Have tried every app or fix idea I could find and still nothing. I am now at the point where I would like to unroot my phone and start over. I feel as if maybe I have done something wrong. However I cant find a video or directions how to unroot my phone back to stock. I know my phone came with ICS and all the videos or directions I find are from 2.3. Can someone please help me with this?

Thanks!

If this is your phone, then it is a Samsung Galaxy S II, which is not a Samsung Galaxy S 4G. The SGS4G is mainly a T-Mobile product and is not firmware-compatible with the Galaxy S II.
Nexus 5, custom OmniROM builds (don't panic, it means I can brick my SGS4G without fear)
Samsung Galaxy S 4G -- Development version of OmniROM
Fromerly: Development version of Team Acid's CM9 source, Hefe Kernel of Darkness, KG4 modem.
Working on: Cleaning up the build tree for OmniROM and Samsung kernel sources


WiFi Performance, GB vs. ICS, and how to measure it yourself.

FreeBSD, Ubuntu, MacOS X, OpenWRT
Motorola Micro-TAC ("Micro" ) Nokia 2160, 8260, 6681, E70, N900, then had to move on

Default Thanks for your reply

Thanks for your reply!! I am sorry I meant to say XDA says my phone is Samsung Epic 4G Touch. XDA also says that its a sprint phone. The only S II phone I see on XDA is the Samsung Galaxy S II 19122 and it does not look like my phone in the picture. Even in the countless videos I have watched its not my phone. In fact I do not even think that the 19122 is not a Sprint phone. The Samsung Epic 4G Touch looks like my phone and its for Sprint. Which should I be using? What should I do??

Firmware for different Samsung phones is not interchangeable. I'd ask in the Epic 4G Touch forums to start
