Thanks for this and @crispy1
for inadvertently bringing this up by recommending the 3/4 build.
I to had been running the 3/4 build for a while without noticing battery drain, but I had location on battery saving always and manually switched if we needed navigation
After this comment I decided to give the newest build a try, so first I simply clean flashed. I know it said to do stock first, but I'm hard headed. No rotation, no GPS
Off to micromod's debloated stock (using xdabbeb's 39a boot stack both times). Rotation works and GPS lock
Now clean flash JPC's cm12 and gapps. No rotation, no GPS
Thanks to whomever said dirty flashing from micromod's stock fixed the issue for them, because it did for me too. Clean flashed micromod's stock once more, got proximity, rotation, and GPS. Then dirty flashed JPCs cm12
Lots of Google play services crash this way, because I didn't think a gapps package was needed coming from stock. Back to recovery, flashed gapps, then booted without issue
Now I'm on JPC's 39a cm12 with everything working (don't use/have Bluetooth, so can't say). Rotation and proximity sensors were deal breakers for me
Strangely the play app "GPS status and toolbox" picked up a lock and #of SATs on stock, but shows no SATs locking on cm12.
I'll try the one recommended earlier in this thread again, but I'm not too concerned because I opened Google maps, left location on device only, ignored Google's request to change that setting, and got a lock. Then to test it further, I drove to the store (was going there anyway) with airplane mode turned on, and my location (device only) still kept updating for a mile before I switched it back out of airplane.
That just tells me the other app is amiss, but GPS has always worked for me. I've been a happy, lucky G2 owner
Much happier thanks to @xdabbeb
. I surely wouldn't have used the phone this long if it weren't for the great support
Some new battery stats for me
