i have an edited gps.conf file thats meant for the epic touch but even without it i get instant locks within 5 meters. To each his own. Like i said if it works for you go for it. Those drivers arent for this phone so its confusing though...

Got my Epic a few days ago, rooted via one-click on fp sticky, and realized GPS is screwy so tried to replace gps.conf but I can't do anything to do it

Anyone got a clue?

Flashed it through clockwork but the GPS is still taking forever to lock on

after flashing this, if your GPS isn't seeing any improvements, then try clearing your GPS:

in dialer (stock dialer), type: ##CLRGPSX#. it'll ask you if you want to clear gps data; hit Yes. it'll sit there with a blank window open. after a minute just reboot.

OP= Might want to also add the edited gps.conf because with this, plus the Drivers flashed through CWM, has been wonderful!
