One question in general: sometimes my GPS will drop out completely while in use and won't lock onto any satellites until I reboot the phone. I've had this happen to me on my Nexus One and G2x with CM7 and CM9, possibly even stock too (but I never used stock for very long on either phone).

In your opinion, is this a hardware error where GPS simply stops working, or is it more related to the connection or GPS data?
I'd suspect rom or gps internal configuración. I'd like to know results from a close to stock rom with this patch on top.

There are two other methods of installation listed on the first post.

It isn't the patch with an issue, rather your recovery doesn't support the update binary used in the flashable versions.

I cannot make and maintain 100+ variations for all 24 supported devices.

There was a bug in CM7 since end of October(!) that prevented using A-GPS altogether. That's why getting a lock took ages, also with this. I complained the slowness here and now I apologize.

It is now fixed in latest nightly. GPS's now blazingly fast even with gps.conf shipped with CM7.

No worries. The Notes Section discussed this since October 2011, though.

Today, AGPS Patch has reached a total number of 28 officially supported devices.

Support was added for the Asus Transformer TF101, Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, Samsung's Galaxy S I9000, and HTC's One X.

I predicted that companies would get wiser and start providing properly built stock ROM's for GPS usage. That was incorrect. I'm willing to research and work with people to bring more devices into the fold.

There have been millions of downloads of my personal xtra.bin data and tens of millions of queries submitted through the DNS pool I maintain for Stratum II time servers. I lost track of the number of ROM's that have incorporated this patch. In fact, v3.x began 11 months ago and has brought worldwide help to the masses.

And remember, I don't have to release new versions of this patch locally because it has been so fine-tuned. But, I'm always working on the xtra.bin data almanac and the Stratum II time servers to keep this thing going strong.

To the few that have donated to support the many, thank you very much. If anyone would like to continue to support this project for growth in more devices and continual data provisioning, please consider donating as well.

It DOES work on Jellybean. Please elaborate how you reached this conclusion in your OWN environment.
