Guys,

I think I find the solution for the weak GPS lock for Gingerbread leak ROMs. Flash this zip in Clockworkmod and let me know if it works for you. For me, I can get 9 out of 9 sats. See screen shots.

NOTE: For those who have Google Framework Force Close, do this:

In Titanium Backup, find Google Services Framework and hit clear data. (thanks kennyglass123 for this tip)

so a total noob question. how do you used these fixes? I have clockwork installed and i am running gingerbread bamboozled ROM. dont know if that is relevant. Thank you.

This should be working for all Gingerbread based ROMs. All you have to do is booting to cwm recovery then select install update from zip or something like that. I don't remember exact name.

Very nice!! I am in my basement and getting a lock on one sat. I have never gotten a lock on a satellite in my basement before. Looking forward to going upstairs. :D

    Nice work hienkhieu. I'll advise anyone who flashed my zip to delete the libgps.so from system/lib.

    No problem bro. We're all trying to contribute something back to our community.
