Just curious about GPS and AOSP
Hello, my name is Andy, and I'm a flashaholic...
Been unlocking my phones and flashing ROMs since my xv6800 (HTC titan). Recently activated my One, even managed to get fastboot and adb working on my windows 8.1 laptop, got s-off, and thought I was pretty clever... I flashed my favorite ROM (liquid smooth, the unofficial one). Thought everything was great until I found that my GPS wouldn't even fix on one satellite. Luckily, I remembered the old trick of flashing a Sense ROM, getting a GPS fix, then restoring a backup of the AOSP ROM. Worked like a charm... Instant lock on 11+ satellites.
So my question is: why does this work? Not an urgent question, and it's no sweat off my back if the only responses I get are immature flaming of an experienced flasher with an innocent question. Can anyone who is more android savvy shed some light on this?
