VZW GPS Discussion Thread
I finally got it.

VZW AGPS INSTANT LOCKS.

Tested to work on any custom GPS rom/radio pair. Now also working with the MR1 update thanks to Skywing.

Persists through all flashes of the OS Rom and Radio. Works with both PRI 1.35_002 and 2.03_002, though it does NOT persist through a PRI change. It will have to be re-applied after, and Location On will have to be reset.


Complete tutorial can now be found in the wiki here:

Well done!

What is the default IP for Verizon? I changed that IP so many times

Edit: Instant lock 6 - 8 satellites in a building where I would never get any. Outside my phone connected fine after 15 - 20 seconds. No I am getting instant locks. Excellent GC, very good work on this one!

Quick Question
For the less then patient of us who were dumb enough to flash the new update with the PRI from hell, what is the best prep path for this long awaited aGPS update.

I have waited to see what the best cure is and I am less then convinced which method to use.

GC Rules!!!!

I am humbled by your wisdom.

For those needing the stock info look to the GPS FAQ on this site.

A lil bit of an acknowledgement would have been nice unless you got the PDE addressing information from someone else :)

That being said, can you verify for certain that there is a difference from using the nvram-supplied PDE data? My testing on the MR1 firmware has not yielded any differences yet on the standard interface. I suspect that it might be worth a try putting on the GPS intermediate driver module from that ROM instead of the one with the challenge/handshake obfuscation built into it.

Before I poke around with that, however, it would be nice to verify that the PDE I gave you does indeed have an effect that cannot be written off as warm-start standalone GPS, and that it doesn't require a VZ Navigator provisioning.

Edit:
You may be able to test this by putting the phone on Wi-Fi and seeing if there's any change, as the PDE is not accessible out of Verizon IP ranges (furthermore, VZ Navigator chokes if you put it on Wi-Fi).
