[Q] GPS stopped working
RAZR XT710 EU
I've had spotty GPS functionality ever since I've switched to the CM10.1 roms which means I had to sometimes restart the phone to get the blinking status icon. But once it was blinking I knew it took a few seconds to lock and I would get some satellites even indoors.
Two weeks ago the GPS stopped working completely, ever since I removed the SIM card. I've tried reinstalling the same ROM, installing other ROMs, doing a clean install on another slot (4.1.2. SPREM) but it just does not want to find any satellites.
I've used GPS Toolbox, Faster GPS and NMEA Decoder to see what it's outputting. On one ROM I was getting some strings with $PMOTO but no NMEA position strings.
The libgps shows an error code which could be either 9 on one ROM or 12 on another:

AFAIK the GPS functionality is on the same chip with WiFi and Bluetooth, both of which work perfectly. Is there any antenna connector that might have come loose? I didn't see any in the ifixit teardown.
Can Matt's utility be used to reset a phone that's non-Verizon? Or should I use RSD?
