Default [APP][ROOT] FasterFix [V1.5]

Does getting a GPS-fix take ages?

The answer to all (or at least one) of your problems:
FasterFix
Root and busybox required


Market Link
Download APK

The app improves the GPS NTP time settings in your gps.conf file and adds a gps suppliant host.

Simply download and run the app. SHOULD work on all devices. Tested on Galaxy S and HTC Desire (S-OFF).
Root and busybox are needed, modern HTC phones need to be S-OFF!


Changelog:
V1.5.0
- UX improvemens
- Added more regions to the list.
- support for small screen devices.
- Dropped android 1.5 support.

V1.1.7
-Bugfixes

V1.1.5
-Ads to earn back those 25 bucks for the developer account.
-Removed gradients, Gingerbreadified
-No more crashes when using without root.

V1.1
- Added Germany, France and Japan
- Move to SD support.

V1.0
- Over 15000 users, no bugreports since RC3. appears to be stable.

RC3
-Fixed problems caused by titanium backup busybox.
-Slight UI enhancement.

If it just gives a black screen:
It appears to happen because of problems with busybox.
If you have a black screen, try these steps:
1. Restart the app (use back key to exit it)
2. Download the busybox installer app in the market, this version is confirmed working.
3. send me a bug report.

If it helped you, , click on the ads or just Thank me ->

Unhappy didn't work on my Galaxy S

I installed and run it, and it didn't do nothing.
Just blanked the screen and back to the app menu in less than 1 sec.

it was obviously uninstalled immediately after

What device do you have?
You probably don't have root or busybox installed...
I added some better error handeling.

Try to use search, or restart your launcher. Apps don't uninstall themselves

I have downloaded the zip but what do I do from here? I have Busybox installed but no app to install a zip. I tried to boot into Recovery Mode & install the Fasterfix.Zip but it hangs. Found it!!! Rename to apk & installed but didn't change my Galaxy S very poor lock time.
