You may want to try this method instead, it's worked for me every time I flash CM9 or CM7.
- Make sure to have Calk's_FORMAT_ALL script on the SD along with the ROM and gapps package.
- After flashing the stock EL26CWM kernel boot into recovery.
- Flash Calk's_FORMAT_ALL script.
- Flash the ROM.
- Flash the gapps package.
Again I apologize if this is all common knowledge for you. It works perfectly for me every time though so I thought I would share.
finally got back to CM9w/GPS lock!!!!!
After numerous boot loops from auto root, one touch odin, and regular odin, I finally went back into recovery, factory wipe, then installed gunslinger, then install unammed ROM, then got a lock in google maps, power off, then followed the CM9 flash instructions again. Now I'm all good, but wasted 3 hours that I could have been working (which is my loss since I'm self-employed) However, now I have GPS on CM9, so I'm content. Thanks to everyone who helped I really appreciate it.
