Everything is working nicely now! Thanks scotsman and others to help get this working!
Just to clarify, I will nicely display the steps.
1) Take the two files from the gps fix and put them on the root of your sd card (or wherever is easier to locate for you).
2) use Root Explorer to copy these files to their respective destinations
2.5) libgps.so goes to system/lib/ and gps.bravo.so goes to system/lib/hw/
3) go into your system/etc folder and edit the gps.conf file to whatever your gps zone that is closest to you is.
4) chmod 777 the two files by long pressing the files, selecting permissions and ticking all boxes.
5) I rebooted and voila, it works!

Can you change permissions before moving them to their respective folders? Just sounds like it might be a little easier to me.

I don't see why not. The files should keep their permissions when you move them. Also, the MDJ gingerbread thread has a copy of the_scotsman's instructions posted and it seems to be working for everyone.

i see something named "XTRA_SERVER_" so i place the remaining servers in their place or leave them as is?

Which to use? "0.north-america.pool.ntp.org" or "us.pool.ntp.org"

The only line I edited was for NTP server, which was set for Europe and I changed it to "0.us.pool.ntp.org" for United States. Hope that answered your question.

lol sorry bro, i used "0.north-america.pool.ntp.org" if it helps. it took me a reset and waiting about 5 mins for GPS to kick in after pressing the GPS button in Google Maps for it to find me. Hope i helped bro.


EDIT: i left the rest "XTRA" lines untouched.
