Default Radio and GPS Issues

I recently flashed to nX1i v1.04 and installed iGo 8. Everything was working beautifully but I wanted to try out itje's Touch-IT X1-P.UC. After I flashed I went through the motions setting up the connection and reinstalled iGo. After I ran iGo I realized I was not connecting to any satellites. The satellites were showing up but there was no connection being made. I ensured that I had updated quickgps but it did nothing. I tried also using the gps function in google maps but it could not find any satellites. The baud rate in iGo was set to auto and the com at 4.

I checked my radio version and I had Radio 1.11.25.76. I thought that maybe if I changed my radio it might help. I tried flashing blackstone and raphael both modified for the X1 and after the utility said congratulations, the phone reset but in device information i was still at 1.11.25.76. I tried reflashing spl and then flashing the radios but still the same issue. I did however flash down to 1.10.25.18 and back up to 1.11.25.76 with no problem.

The underlying issue here is the GPS. I really need the gps up and running as it is my only gps! Anybody have any ideas?

About the radio update the number didn't change because your phone must be security locked...But if you use official xperia radios it does change the number...
And about the gps issues you shouldt try other rom i recommend you i prefer stock roms there have not such kind of issues or maybe light ones, i use one that i myself have take all videos and get more memory....
Trust me try other roms
Or use a tool call GPStool from HTC...
And make hot and cold start....

Thanks for the help Fulgore69! I tried flashing back to stock but no luck. Is the rom you are using available on xda? I have no idea where to go from here

Have you confirmed that your Regional settings and your timezone are correct?
These can affect the ability of the GPS to work.

I get that sometimes as well, it could be cloud cover etc. Try it again in about 5 to 10 minutes and see if you're still having the same problem.
