I cnat seem to get GPS to lock on. It always says searching for GPS on maps, and on waze it just says it can't get a GPS signal.

I'm on liquid smooth 4/13, and quantum kernel 4/18.

I tried messing with some build.prop setting like the gprsclass and others and nothing will fix it. I even updated the gps with android tweaker 2 from the play store.

I can't even get gps to work when I'm on WiFi.

Both liquid smooth and the pacman rom won't lock onto a gps signal.


Anyone have any insight I need gps for my new job.

I actually figures it out last night thanks to this poster

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=52060467

A factory reset under settings fixed my GPS issue. Don't know how since I formatted my internal SD not to long ago. But hey it worked and that's all that matters.

Thank for a response though, I will check out the GPS stuff on s3rx, especially if I have any other problems.

1. Easiest and most reliable way. Try this first!

Enter the Samsung service mode by typing this code into the dial pad *#197328640#
Then go to Mainmenu>UMTS>Common>NV REBUILD>NV REBUILD> (Important: don't exit the menu yet!)
Wait 30+ sec
Long press power button and select "Restart / Reboot"
Now check your GPS from any software that may use GPS like "Maps" or "GPS Status"

They already solved the problem, but just so you know, you have to be running a stock based rom with a stock dialer to use the NV Rebuild method.
It won't work on AOSP/CM based roms like he was using.
