GPS fix files for ICS roms
This is not my work.
Found these cwm flashable files in the Experia ROM thread, and since I've tried about everything possible to fix the GPS death after deep sleep, I figured I'd try flashing these before going back to froyo and a consistently reliable GPS fix.
Well, they worked for me. I'm currently on slim 3.1, subzero's build 34 kernel as the stock kernel didn't work for me after deep sleep. It has worked for others, but even if it did work for me, I can't live without voodoo sound, and that doesn't work on stock kernels. Plus you can undervolt with something like subzero's kernels which extends battery life.
I was never even able to get a lock before on slim, but after flashing and rebooting I locked 10 birds in 20 seconds. After a 25 minute deep sleep (93% according to CPU spy) I was able to lock again albeit it took about 40 seconds.
Thought I'd post these since so many others have same issues.

- Experia Files
- ultimate cleaning script
UPDATE : Seems these work well on latest subzero kernels also - tested v26 and v34 and v80.. I'm using v80 with consistent results on AOKP 35. Initial lock is very fast under 10 seconds, subsequent locks after deep sleep is 40-60 seconds but will always find it, just a little more patience.
Best results when you flash the ultimate kernel cleaning script in recovery before installing a new kernel, then allow phone to boot normally before rebooting back to the recovery and flashing the GPS files. Yaggf2 first and then experia before rebooting phone normally.
