Downloaded the Norway.zip and...
Love it! Made my position accuracy go from 2000 meters down to 100!
I really recomend this!

Quick question th0, is it possible to use two of these at the same time? Because i travel to my neighbour country Sweeden very often and it could be usefull to have the same accuracy over there.

Hi,

Nice list but isn't there a file for Austria?

Thanx :)

Sent from my Desire HD

Something went wrong when signing the .zips, I've added the Austria one.
Downloaded the Norway.zip and...

I'm affraid you can't but since Sweden and Norway are in the same time zone (right?) it should improve there too. Otherwise I'm affraid you'll have to flash them

Ok!
Thanks alot! I'll just try the norwegian one when i get to sweden, if it dont work I will just flash the swedish one.

I opened the zip files and found that the only difference is the "NTP_SERVER" line.
for Norway it is: no.pool.ntp.org
and for Sweden: se.pool.ntp.org

I will update this post when I have tested it=)

Sorry for noobing around :) --> should I just extract the zip file and copy the inserted gps.conf to the etc folder? What (quality)difference does it make using the europe zip instead of the switzerland zip alone?

Quality difference isn't noticable I think, but if you travel a lot I would just go for Europe.

You can extract it and place the gps.conf in /system/etc but you can also flash the file with Clockworkmod.

Doesn't FasterFix (from the Market) do the same? I used this with several ROM's on both my SGS1 and SGS2.

/edit
just did a small test. I opened FasterFix and it was set to europe.pool.ntp.org
Then I flashed Netherlands.zip using CWM.
Booted my phone and opened FasterFix. Setting was changed to nl.pool.ntp.org
Only difference with FasterFix is that less countries are available then provided in this topic

A more important difference is that you can flash these while updating. I myself update and switch ROM's quite a lot, so having this in my sd card root and not having to bother about changing it in fasterfix everytime is quite convenient.

If you use MIUI it's even easier to change the NTP server. (CM7 may also have this feature)

Go to "Settings"-->"Personal"-->"My Location"-->"GPS configuration" and change the address.

I know, but on my version (Galaxy S II) the settings and file aren't linked correctly. So changing the file won't change gps.conf. Don't know whether it's device related or not...

Yeah, i don't know how it works with other ROMs than MIUI, but i just type in the address and it's done.
Sorry, I ment that on the Galaxy S II version of MIUI the GPS server setting isn't correctly linked to the gps.conf file. Can you check if it does work on your device?

    Hi.

    Sorry about my noobiness, I forgot that.

    But it failed anyway with "status 0"

    I've then toggled signature verification on an retried, and it says "signature verification failed" and " Installation aborted"

    Is it normal to fail the signature verification if on?
    Hmm, not too sure. Just move this file to /system/etc and replace with Rootexplorer will do the same.
