Thanks Scott for your Help !

I have been looking for a fix for international Roms So I can run them on my Note II from Verizon
Several Roms out there for the Note II but not a lot of them unless they are Verizon Versions on the Software Some of the VZW Apps Don't work properly This should Fix the GPS Issue you might ran into.

It does two things, moves the VZW lib files over for GPS and it also should fix the volume levels in some apps that are low...

I have used Scott's Roms the entire time I had my SIII, but since having my Note, I can not get GPS to work. I would love to return, but Meanbean is working flawless.

Have you tried getting a gps lock on another ROM, done a nandroid, re flashed desired ROM? Usually this fixes it. Or if you toggle between LTE/CDMA and Global under the Wireless & Networks this too sometimes helps.

So does this mean that an International ROM could be flashed followed by this and then the modem plus kernel?

If it Doesn't I Flash Beans then use root uninstaller to back up the maps apk and stick it on your EXTSDCARD and go to recovery and wipe everything flash International Rom and the go to ES File Explorer and hit the menu button and go to tools/root explorer/Mount R/W and mount all RW NOT RO then go into the ES Explorer and go to Local and EXTSDCARD Then restore the Gmaps and it will ask to overwrite and say yes to all. Then reboot the Phone. When the Note II reboots then go to the Google Store and pick up GPS test its free and you can reset the AGPS and Update the AGPS Signals GO out side and get your Signal. If this doesn't work Try to Flash the Scotts GPS test Patch and should help. FYI I have had issues with the Global Mode popping up a lot and I went into the settings/more settings/Mobile Networks/Network Mode and change to LTE/CDMA and then if you get Updating Sim Card info a lot at the bottom of the Screen Set it back to Global and should fix but you will still get the Switch to Global mode Message More I am still stuck how to fix that issue.

So that's awesome. Pretty much we are fair game to flash international roms? That great! Definitely will try it out.


Edit: Sounds funny but where is the International thread here at xda? Or is there one?

FOUND IT! :banghead:

Maybe Try it but most of the time I believe it would work but could need some other Verizon Libs.etc to work properly

Think this fix will work on the minitabinternational ROM? I believe its base is still the same am I wrong. Mini tab is the only ROM I've ever had that GPS doesn't lock.

This worked on Novella rom but the lock is really slow

Edit: the lock was slow only at first try but almost instant lock after that.

    Thanks for posting this thread. I'm sure it will benefit many who suffer. I haven't had any GPS issues on any rom I flashed. Is it possible Samsung used GPS chips from different vendors?
