Default GPS Not Available

I just noticed that my GPS is not working, and when I try to use Maps, it says I don't have GPS hardware. I installed GPS Status and it says Gps: Not available. I used TopNTP like others have said and no luck. I am rooted and unlocked using Codefires Experiment nightlies, I'm not sure when it stopped working, I think it was the 11-18 build. I do remember the last few times I updated it said something about the EFS files were missing, I assume those are for the GPS. I'd post in the Codefires Experiment developer thread but I don't have enough post yet. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried flashing an alternate ROM?
Did you back up your EFS partition?
Is there and EFS folder on your card? I think freegee makes a copy and maybe twrp. They're saved as .img files. If so, you can restore vids the command line.

Yes I have.

I did finally get GPS to work again. I installed Houstonn's AOSP Andriod Kikkat 4.4 Geeb and it got my GPS working again. I will back it up for now on though, not going to go through that hassle again.
