Gingerbread.GPS.zip
This is a flash for the GPS files pulled from the new XWJV1 Gingerbread I9000 Leak.
Rather a mix of GB GPS and Vibrant GPS.

Wipes Dalvik so it will take a minute longer to reboot after flashing it.

This took a little longer for me to lock indoors but I was still able to get 6 meters accuracy with 6 of 12 birds locked.

S.gps.zip
AKA Super GPS
This is the one you want to try!
Flash on 2.2.1 and under.

Great success has been had when combining this software fix with the hardware fix found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=878970

Tried to flash on cm7 and it said amended scripting no longer supported in gingerbread recovery or something like that. What a tease!

and how would one go about doing that?
Well, first off, you will be the first person to try these files on cm7 - that I know of.

Secondly, unzip the file and place the files on your sdcard and use root explorer to copy and paste them in to their respective folders using the folder structure I have them in as your guide.

I am trying on CM7. As a note, the /data/gps/ folder has some completely different looking files in there than the secgps.conf. /system/bin/ also did not contain agpsd, but /system/etc/ did contain gps.conf. I do not know what any of that means specifically.

3+ minutes so far in GPSTest (indoors), and it does not even pretend to be sniffing a satellite.

Those files don't already exist and that is why the gps does not work.
