[Q] [SemiRant] Why does.....
GPS not work on the custom roms?
Now before you flame me about "searching the forums". Don't worry, I have. I know the fix (ie Flash back to DI18, get lock then flash to latest). Which from a not quite a dev but not a noob stand point doesnt make the least bit of sense to me.
Why does locking in an older rom make it work in a new rom.
More importantly, Ive flashed the leaked stock DK28 rom and GPS worked out of the box. If the stock rom works fine, why are the custom roms not. I haven't found a custom rom yet that has a working GPS and having moved to the EXT4 filesystem, I REALLY dont want to try flashing DI18... Im not even sure it would work. What is being tweaked or not tweaked in the custom roms to create this problem, and instead of making a rediculous work-around to make it work, how come it hasnt been fixed.
Im not implying that people arent trying to fix it, I just want to understand this.
