I'm a senior .NET developer with 13+ years programming experience, now studding Android for a couple of months now, also doing a two weeks Android course (this week and the next one). My goal is to start creating some ROMs for the device too, but my current knowledge is pretty basic and theoretical right now.
I'm also very experienced on testing ROMs (used to do it a lot on my old Xperia X10). tested many versions from Eclair 2.1 to GB 2.3, including MIUI and CyanogeMod too
Current devices: Nokia Lumia 1020 Black
Past devices: - Nokia Lumia 920 White - Samsung Galaxy Nexus GSM - Retired - Asus Eee Pad Transformer - Samsung Galaxy SII - Motorola Atrix 4G - Sony Xperia arc - Sony Xperia X10
To all of you posting, "pick me"
It's not going to help you at all. If you read the original post, it was mentioned that you needed to provide a sample bug report to be considered.
I don't have much free time on my hands lately, but if you need a backup let me know.
Phone: ATT Atrix
Radio: OTA Stock (N_01.77.30P)
Hacks/Mods used: Battery fix, webtop on HDMI, Gtalk on 3g
What is the expected behavior?
When the google navigation app is started the GPS should lock on within a reasonable amount of time and should remain locked on. Should it lose a lock, it should re-lock within a reasonable amount of time. The "maps" app should operate within the same limits.
What is the actual behavior?
When the GPS app is started, the initial lock takes anywhere between 3-5 minutes to get a lock. Once a lock occurs it will remain locked for a short while. It does not lose the lock at the same time intervals, it is sporadic. I've seen it take anywhere from 10-15 minutes. Once a lock is lost and you hear the audible warning... the phone will reboot itself every time. The same issue occurs if you use the "maps" app. You are able to get gps data, but once you lose a lock the phone reboots itself.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Make sure GPS radio is on.
- Initiate "navigation app" or "maps"
- Wait for a GPS lock
- Wait for GPS signal loss
