Hi all,
this is my first XDA post
My gps doesn't work anymore on my HTC Sensation 4G: after 15 minutes it still doesn't get the position.
Tried different navigators (maps, osmand) and specific tools (GPS status & toolbox) -- I've flashed different roms (CM 10.2/11 with Sultan Kernel, Miui V5) but the problem is still there. Location is (obviously) active both for google and in generic settings.

What would you do to understand if the gps module is broken?

Here are some info about current configuration

Android 4.3.1 @sultan ION 50.5
Baseband 11.68.3504.00P_11.21.3504.13_2

Thanks for any help

Which ROm did you use,
Try this agps.patch.google.build.nossl.v3.1.zip

This is a flashable zip onto Recovery

I discovered that GPS is dependent on the Gapps that you have flashed. Please chose the correct gapps package relevant to your ROM and it will lock like a breeze.

It worked! I honestly didn't think since I flashed 3 different Roms without success (always with full wipe). With both maps and tuttocittanav (italian free offline nav) it took the signal in less than 20 seconds! The only problem I'm having is with OsmAnd navigator but It is the app.

I flashed the cm 10.2 and cm 11 both of jan 4 from Android1234567 (with ION mm). I also flashed 2 different MIUI versions (3.12.20 and 3.12.27).
As far as the GAPPS version I always download the one linked in the Rom thread post.

Thanks a lot!

Done couple of times
Since I'm a new user I can't put links in my posts (neither quoting urls from post I'm answering) -- in the Dev section you linked to my post but here people won't find the url, you'd better link to your solution post. I answer you there cause I can't write in Dev area

cheers
