Previously, loading the US WiFi rom gave me working GPS. I've since flashed a bunch of other roms multiple times. Yesterday I reloaded the US WiFi rom via the ARU Wizard. GPS is not working now. It's just as bad as on any other rom based off the non-us base.

Then I tried wiping everything I could via recovery (data, cache, etc). Installed the US WiFi again. Same problem. Weird...

Tried that tonight -still no solid GPS. Keeps dropping like it did before.

edit: realized all my testing had been on battery, so I plugged it in. Still no improvement

Working fine here.
USA BB Wifi only Flyer.


Flashed from GB to HC using Globatron's guide.
S-OFF, originally upgraded with the WIFI package. Software number 3.55.405.1. I believe it was built from 3G package. Used PG41IMG-WIFI-B09.zip file for upgrade.

Hope this helps.

So, as far as I can tell, this issue still has not been resolved?

I'll take the lack of response in the past week to be a "No."
