Wow! What a difference. Before I installed this, my maps and sportstracker app had trouble with gps. I was kind of "jumpy" in maps and sportstracker had trouble setting a start position.

Can confirm that this is working on Desire. Installed Google Specific build as recommended, and it's working perfectly. GPS lock is definitely quicker and more accurate - I even managed to get a GPS lock from indoors, which my Desire never managed before.
I'm using Runnymede AIO v5.0.4 ROM, btw, in case anyone else using that ROM should want to try this out.
