Here is my own aGPS settings cab.
Created originally for my Raphael, but works perfectly fine on my Rhodium (Touch Pro 2) and should work on any other WM6.1/5 aGPS capable device.
This replaces the default aGPS server to the one GOOGLE aGPS server. This has been found to dramaticaly
increase GPS lock speed! After applying this cab i get cold Locks in about 20 seconds and warm gps lock in under 15!
Don't be scared to try it out as its easy to revert to defualt settings!
Try it out and report your results!
I created this so I can just add it to my UC list making life easier in setting up a rom after flashing and thought others might benefit from it.
Feel free to comment, hate, or appreciate
If there is a demand, i can easily delete the At&t bit and so its more generic, also if you want this adapted for your provider, reply with your APN and GPRSConnection and i can create the cab for you
It sets the following in the [HKLM\Software\HTC\SUPL aGPS\] Registry
(searched on the internet and many people claim much faster locks than the default h-slp.mnc410.mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org
(so aGPS is enabled in settings)
Unchecks "Enable AGPS loation information to network services. Operator can get your location information." From the Privacy tab of the AGPS Settings
Decided to just make a Generic
one that sets the nokia aGPS server, enables aGPS, disables Location info and no network configuration.
[UPDATE: The cabs are the SAME as the previous ones titled FF ATT/Fido/Generic Nokia aGPS Settings, I just changed Nokia to Ultimate because I was getting PMs on how to install them on nokia devices]
update 3/30/10: updated the cabs to use the google supl which is provided on android devices!
There is no need for carrier specific settings, they should automaticly fill in from info already on your device. If you go to HKLM\Software\HTC\SUPL aGPS\ and APN, Network, and GPRSConnection are empty after you've installed the cab and soft reseted, then post here and i will make carrier specific cabs.
[06/08/2010] Re-attached the supl.nokia cab as requested. Please test and compare to the newly attached "FF Ultimate aGPS Tweak_supl.google_Generic.cab" and report your results.
When i ping supl.nokia.com requests time out leading me to believe nokia's servers are down, or they changed them to something else.
With FF Ultimate aGPS Tweak_suple.google_Generic.cab i get a lock in under 15seconds, even after hard reset!!
