GPS lock on google navigation

When I go to google maps - I can see my coordinates are being updated but when I hit navaigation for voice driving directions - the GPS won't engage. Gets stuck on Searching for GPS...is this a known problem?

Thanks for this ROM and looking forward to the 2.2 version :)

google map requires data to work. Have you tried this with data?

awesome!! new release... just got my Evo View about two weeks ago and really like it (size, price, pen ;)) so i shall be testing and reporting back aswell :)

I bought mine flashed to Boost (I don't know how to flash back!! haha) so i can report on it working on Boost? (although if you have reportings that the 3G radios work on Sprint, they should for Boost aswell)

I also have 4G in my area, anyway to test this functionality without having Sprint Service? Would love to help as much as possible!

CGROM RC2.2 Released

Link posted on OP and below. For those that were on RC 2.1, you could try not wipe data, but always wipe cache and davilk cache. If you run into issues with Google Play, then try wipe data and re-install.

http://www.nana-sushi.com/public/CGROM_JB_2.2.zip

For those that wants to help testing. please go ahead and report back your findings. But try not to report the same issues that others have already done. Thanks.

I believe google maps work offline now? However I tried it WIFI - indoor and also outdoors. I see "me" on the map and my location gets updated too...it looks like the gps is working. Its strange. So the map portion works and gives me correct driving direction routes. It's when I initiate directions for voice navigation where the problem lies...it gets stuck on "Searching for GPS".

I have waited to switch from CG ICS rom until some of the bugs were fixed in JB. The only bug no one has mentioned is the wonky scrolling. Is it better on the newest release?

Interesting. Not sure what changes you made, but now I am unable to install Netflix from Google Play or Amazon App Store.

Thoughts?

I didn't test with wipe since if I wipe I will lose netflix. So it's possible that the fix I thought fixes google play may not have done so. Have you tried the previous fixed someone posted?

If you're referring to the XML file swap and permission post, the original post was deleted, so I can't get the modified XML files.

I might just go your route and wipe -> flash 2.1 -> install my apps -> flash 2.2 without a wipe.

Nexus 7 ui is working great! Google Now with voice commands works.. and fast too!

One problem, the 5th icon in the phone ui dropdown toggles is pink? (Almost looks like a set of kissing lips) Anyone else's icon irregular?

(icons in order from left to right - wifi, bluetooth, gps location, tilt, -- ??? this is the errored 5th icon -- , vibrate, sync)

Thank you so much YNC! I'm so amazed you created a nearly fully functional JB Rom for our device that seemed doomed to remain on HTC's GB/HC updates. You saved the View.

EDIT: Strolling response seems improved too.

    I am naming this ROM with my wife's initials CG as a token of appreciation for her support of my work on this project.

    Also credit should be given to Chaosz-X, as part of our ROM was based on his work (mainly the vendor config files).

    We have moved to RC release which means it's fairly stable and with most functionality supported. But it doesn't mean it's fully working there are still some bugs and some functionality unsupported see below section to see what is not working.

    Also remember that this is not a ported rom it's build from scratch with official HTC HC kernel source modified to work with JB AOKP, so it's very stable but the progress is slower since the degree of difficulty is higher. So be patient.

    Release Candidate 2.1 [8/23]

    got the part yesterday install it. works like new. development resume

    Last release

    It's been a great 6+ months since I first started out on this ROM. It has been both fun and exhausting. I have been thinking about stepping away for a while now for those of you that follow my thread, I think now might be the best time as we have more dev/porters working on the device.

    Now regarding the last release, here is what I have so far. I really hope to get FFC camera to work before I bid farewell, but that may not happen.

    Android 4.1.2 based
    GPS much better signal
    UMS both sd card

    Now the downside
    Occasional graphic glitches that happens on all 4.1.2 ROM ATM
    11
    i think i am going to release 2.4 with cm9. thats ICS btw. the reason is that i dont think i can get anything else to work on jb. however on ics i think i can get camera and camcorder fully working.

    yncconsulting as you said about your to-do list can we see what is inside? ;)

    Sure, There big ticket items which requires a lot of development and testing time and there are few minor issues which should take less time but could turn into big ticket items once I start looking into it.

    Also remember that at this point the Rom is very functional and very stable. The next release will be RC1 and will not be call Alpha or Beta anymore. I think that the ROM at the current stage can satisfy most ppl's needs for daily driver. I hope to include microphone and maybe camera support as well as scrolling fix and squish button fix. At which point I will make a decision weather to continue with development as this has been taking a serious toll to my regular work and life for the past 2 months. I think I have delivery a lot in the short amount of time. So I hope you would understand if I were to take a break from this for while or even stop development as I am feeling a little burn out.

    Big ticket items (The time that I have already spent on each item)
    Microphone (1 week)
    Camera, (2 weeks)
    Pen, (few days)
    Bluetooth, (2 weeks)
    3g (none)

    Minor Items
    Scrolling issue, Squish buttons, battery improvement, Cpu OC...other bugs ppl brings up.
