I've been having constant problems with the gps on my phone. If I TOT back to 11a, gps is ok. Nothing stellar but seems to get a fix after a spell.
If I take the OTA 12b my GPS goes to hell. Fix takes 1 min + sometimes. Looking through the threads I've tried and attacked the gps issue with everything everyone had to offer.... In one fix found from the Samsung Galaxy SIII forum, by editing the gps.conf file to focus the search to only US and North America servers you can speed up the fix. Makes sense to me.
In reading the code for my stock GPS.conf I see ntp_servers for Korea, Europe, asia, Japan, and North america.
For each server there is a description enclosed in hashtags: #Asia# #Korea# #Europe#
For my limited coding experience I'd assume the hashtags prevent that content from being read, allowing the coder to leave a comment or descriptor within the hashtags.
That being said, why doesn't the north america title have a second hashtag?
Mine reads like this from OTA 12b:
What language is being used here? Does the hashtag matter or is it unneeded? Because if it does matter, then the correct north america server isn't being read. It's being obscured by the hashtags and being read wrong.
I went into the file using file explorer, "open in text editor", and added just a hashtag after the north america. I went from sitting and watching the gps status and toolbox endlessly look for a fix to grabbing satellites after a few seconds.
Am I crazy?
