So, after 24 hours outside, i can get a fix with accuracy between 25-50meters.. it's not enough but why not. After a reboot, i try get a fix with gps test, after 10min 24 in view but no one in use... GPS is definitively broken.. I'm so sad cause your rom brings a lot of things (volte, nav with "gest", AOD, dark mode... ) but without gps i can't use it.

Okay now wait for a day and try again.. don't stress GPS so much

And after lots of trying if GPS is still bad.. which means it's hardware issue.. your GPS chip is weak or broken..

Does someone have a XZ1Compact with a functionnal GPS please ? Ni Co bought at least 6 XZ1C and since April 2019. All of them have GPS who fail he lost hope. Can somebody could send a pic or a video ? :D
Moreover, we are in Europe (France) - Is it possible that a calibration of the GPS fix you used is needed ?

No one complained about GPS because it's fixed.. and I already told (you can also see in forums) that few xz1c came with broken GPS..

Since you want a proof of fix here you go

The pictures above are from gps test.

I really have no idea.. when it's all working for almost everyone.. I think it's hardware. You can verify it by going back to stock and see if GPS is still bad.

So... i flash stock, redboot, flash twrp, reboot, flash october pack and Google Play are still not certified. The same with google play also doesn't work?

Google play certified takes time and it's glitched. You can clear data and reboot and it will automatically be certified after a while. But safetynet should pass before it gets certified.

If it's not certified, please use some magisk module.

But I posted this october build after testing clean flash and it was passing.. not sure what happened :(

Hi !

I come back with a fix for my "gps problem", after buy so many XZ1c with this problem, i try buy another one last week..... (i don't like the color "blue coral").. I just test GPStest and ... 40sat in view and fix without sim card in my house with 6or 7 sat, outside it fix with 20sats.. I'm so happy !!

So, u were right, it was hardware... But so many XZ1c have this problem. The XZ1c with problem come from Thailand (Rev 2 on the box), the XZ1c okay come from Malaysia ( Rev3).

So i will instal (Clads will instal :D) twrp and i will stay with your rly great rom !

I pay you a juice 2 weeks ago, and will continue support you all the time you will support this great phone ! :)

    • May
      - May security patch { RU }
      - Added Sony Music { MU }

      - Face unlock is removed due to copyright issues with Motorola, and is only available in Official ROM { RU }

      Important Safetynet update:
      . Safetynet has now got a bit stronger. Allow me to elaborate...
      . In the april versions of this PE, magisk was not required to pass safetynet (cts and basic integrity), but now with May version
      it is required.
      . From the magisk app, under settings, make sure "Magisk Hide" switch is enabled (althought it is enabled by default, but still, just make sure), because now, that "Magisk Hide" should be enabled in-order to pass safetynet (cts and basic integrity).

      - Kernel updated to 4.4.223 { HU }
      WARNING....
      Please Backup before updating.
      If you experience any weird glitches, kindly clean flash by the steps refreshed for May above, as the ROM developers have re-base some stuffs.
