HI guys ( devs, users surfers alike),

I have an S4 i337 AT&T, with locked MK2 bootloader, been on Android 4.3 since i bought this phone online, and everything was working perfectly.
I had it SIM unlocked, rooted, SafeStrap-ed, custom ROMs running perfect on t...NO ISSUES!
Ever since I upgraded to Android 4.4.2 with Deadly Venom's Magic KitKat Tool,(installed the 4.4.2 Cutsom ROM, flashed the mldmodules.zip, flashed the superuser 2.00 zip, ODIN'd the AP, BL, CP tar files right away ...everything on any 4.4.2 ROM works perfect, except 1 major THING: ==> NO GPS fix, ever! ON any of the 4.4.2 ROMs...and I tried like 8 so far....
ANybody knows how to fix this issue? I mean, I travel a lot, I need to be able to use Google Maps, Sygic, CoPilot, OSMand+, and none of them get a GPS fix!!!!
I will attach pics one is with HyperDrive RLS15 ROM (Android 4.3) showing full GPS signals, the other is with SHOstock -i v7.0 ROM, no GPS signals at all...
There will be a screenshot of the "About Device" as well ... notice I am on the MLD baseband, since I have the MK2 locked bootloader...
What should I do, folks? Flash a different modem, module? WHICH exactly, is there any fix for the GPS signal on the 4.4.2 ROMs, because without it, being on 4.4.2 is useless... rather go back to Android 4.3 ...
Im sure lots of you guys on the i337 AT&T, rooted, SS'd, with the locked MK2 bootloader have figured out a solution to get a good GPS fix (signal) on the 4.4.2 ROMs ... somebody please send me a flashable zip solution, for us who have this issue.
BTW, I live in the heart of Budapest, Hungary, and not on some remote island, so I MUST HAVE tons of GPS signals coming in and floating around me, that "Location" is NOT the issue here ...as you could very well see from the screenshot where I do get lots of GPS signals when I am on Android 4.3....

THX in advance for any of you folks out there, who can provide us with a viable solution for this tiny, but MAJOR GPS issue on the 4.4.2 ROMs.
I await your kind replies.

\\// Peace out
