I have created a flashable zip based on galandy's Qualcomm Vision GPS Driver v1.1 that will survive a cm9 upgrade. It works the same exact way gapps does. Simply flash this once and every time you flash a new cm9 rom the gps driver will be backed up and then restored after flashing.

The actually GPS fix is not mine and all thanks goes to galandy.

Shouldn't be necessary but doesn't hurt either.

Changing my battery cover to the original made my GPS work.

I'm having quite a bit of trouble getting accurate reads on my gps. Does this need to be re-flashed after each nightly? My gps works.. but it tracks about 10 yards off of where I actually am, and cuts corners. Kind of a drag when you're using the running apps to track your distance.

After the last two nightlies I'm having GPS problems as well. I know you have been having issues for awhile now but after a clean install of jmz's latest GPS is completely inaccurate. The old fix makes it worse and this one doesn't seem to be working either. Very strange.
