[FIX] Time sync without a connection
Like all our other Android devices, we lose time sync when we do not have a data connection. This could be either cellular, BT or WiFi. The cause of this is because our devices use a time server to adjust our devices time. For those that plan to use their x201 as a completely standalone device without a data connection this can get frustration. Even the Gear has this issue.
One solution is to use GPS satellite time to sync our devices. I have found two apps that do exactly this.
So for truly standalone x201 folks, properly root or apply the patch, install either app and get a GPS lock.
Also in Setting/System/Date and Time if you tap on the "Automatic Date and Time" you have the option to enable GPS Time Sync. I have not tested this but it is reported as working.
