Okay, im not sure if any of this has any real effect on the phone other than faster GPS lock but this is what I do after installing any stock based Rom like eXistenZ or PureXSP.

1. Make sure you are rooted with busybox installed
2. Download a build.prop editor from the Play Store, I used the one inside ROM Toolbox Pro
2. Look for the following lines and change their values to suit your home country/original firmware settings. I am using my UK settings as example.
- DD-mm-yyyy
- ro.product.locale.excluded: (remove any locales if you dont want them excluded)
- ro.product.locale.language: en
- ro.product.locale.region: GB
- ro.semc.version.cust: 1272-4687

3. Download FasterGPS from Play Store - change settings in the app to your nearest GPS server/location


If anyone knows any other ways or missed values, please let me know.

This may be common knowledge to most but it may help some new Sony users.
