My GPS was not fast to sync no matter what I did.. In 4.1.2 TW.

I tightened the screws, tweaked the config, etc.. But Waze and other GPS apps would eventually lock and everything would be fine.. Just had to be patient..

I upgraded to Old&Slow 4.3, which is great; but my GPS now never gets a lock.

All the options are set in settings -> Iocations.. But Waze doesn't even detect the GPS anymore..

And GPS Status (from play store) also never got a lock after an hour of changing ntp servers and rebooting..
Also Phone Info Tool no longer works in 4.3 so I am now stuck with 4G, as I can no longer force 3G..

I would be open to suggestions on either problem..

Thanks in advance.

I use GPS test and have reset the AGPS once to resolve a GPS issue that occurred for me once before. Have you done this through any app? Usually tightening the screws has helped folks or you could go the Odin route.
