Hi,
Thanks for your advice.
I had it already, as well i downloaded GPS Status (seems to be a bit better than sensor tester). I went out today and GPS Status caught 5 satellites, but couldn't determine my position , after that i've switched to g.maps and after a while, my position on the map was ... my home's address (that's were i used internet for the last time) - two streets from where I was standing, so after that I've switched again to GPS Status and within next 15 minutes couldn't catch any satellites. Have no idea how to fix it....

Hi lads,
So...i fixed it
I'm kinda ashamed after posting so much stuff earlier on, as the problem was with the hardware (had nothing to do with ROM/Kernel/RIL whatsoever), i only realized today (mostly cause I wanted to 'boost' the antenna) but the pin connectors with antenna were bent...yeah....really....i just stuck a small piece of an aluminium foil.
Below is screenshot form GPS Status - form inside my gaff - phone is placed against the window.
