[FIX] Timzeone Incorrect GMT Universal Fix (2.1/2.2)
This patch will fix GMT information for countries where GMT is set incorrectly. The fix can be applied to any HTC Android based phone from 1.5 to 2.2 ROMs. It may work for other vendors but I have only tested this on HTC devices.
I am located in Karachi, Pakistan GMT +5 but HTC Desire shows it as GMT +6. I emailed HTC about this issue last month and was expecting it to be fixed in Froyo release but sadly the GMT still displays incorrect GMT information.
This issue was too frustrating as I travel a lot and even if I manually set correct local time then the world clock will still show incorrect time for other locations.
I have created this patch which will fix the incorrect GMT problem.
Reboot into recovery and apply the patch
Note: Only for rooted devices
gmt-fix.zip will fix the timezone issue
gmt-restore.zip will restore the old timezone file
