GPS & Sensors Patch Updated by itasoulas (April 2nd, 2012)
:: Updated system\bin\gpsd from XXKPT
:: Updated system\etc\gps.conf from XXKPT
:: Updated system\lib\hw from XXKPT
:: I think now with updated files locks faster
+ All credits go to lagloose, I just updated the files on his original zip with latest sources from XXKPT
+ If you have original patch, just boot in recovery, mount system and install this. It will overwrite old files and wipe your /data/gps directory to remove old xtra.bin files as original file. So if you start your GPS is like using it for the first time.
+ Please backup your current rom before flashing this. It is highly unlikely that this will do any harm to your phone but you never know, sometimes sh*t happens!
NOTE: The updated gps.conf file does not specify a pool server, e.g. Europe, Asia, etc.. in contrast with lagloose's file that has been edited to specify Europe server. That's good for European users cause even at first use they'll get a faster lock. But users in other continents won't! But after first use all users should lock fast (or faster) as with lagloose's patch. I could have done different versions for each pool server but just would be a pain in the a*s. The bottom line is that after first use you get fast lock as with stock
In order for you to get fastest gps lock ever, do this:
1. Go to my zip, system\etc and open the gps.conf with notepad or wordpad
2. Before the following
NTP_SERVER=YOURCOUNTRY.pool.ntp.org (if you don't know how exactly your country must be written visit this http://www.pool.ntp.org/zone/@)
3. Save file
4. Now your gps is locked to your country.
5. Flash, reboot and enjoy!!! Updated sources from XXKPT with your configuration=SPEED!
Just flash the ZIP in CWM, you don't need the old patch. Exactly the same files as the original lagloose patch are changed.
I've tested this, works perfectly, edited gps.conf for the UK and got lock in about 10 seconds in Maps 6.5 and in central London, very good accuracy...
