How-To Get GPS/Rev A on Sprint Touch

Since the other threads are full of posts, I thought I would create this sticky thread with all the steps needed to get Rev A and GPS on a Sprint Touch with the Alltel ROM.

Things to download:
- Newest Alltel ROM: http://216.139.227.226/alltel/RUU_Vo...SpecialNBH.exe
- ImCokeMan's 2.31 Unlocker: http://rapidshare.com/files/11019074...r_MFG_2.31.exe
- Unlocking Files: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...02&postcount=3
- GPS Files: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...87#post2143987

Now for the fun part....
1) Connect your phone to your computer and establish an ActiveSync connection.
2) Run the Vogue_unlocker_MFG_2.31.exe on your computer and follow all of the prompts (including when to disconnect the USB cable and reconnect).
3) After you get into Windows, do the Power-Camera-Reset to get into ImCokeMan's Bootloader (the rainbow screen).
4) Run the Alltel ROM exe file (follow all prompts).
5) DO A SOFT RESET BEFORE THE CUSTOMIZATIONS RUN or you will not have an internet connection.
6) Install the 3 unlocking files
7) Soft reset
8) Install the GPS cab (to the device if asked)
9) Soft reset

Now to check settings:
- Go to Start > Settings > Personal > Phone > Services > Location Settings > Make sure its set to ON.
- Start > Settings > System > GPS > GPS Program Port is 4, Hardware Port is None, Baud Rate is 4800, Access is set to automatically

Now there are a variety of programs out there to test GPS, so choose one, go outside and wait for up to 5-10 minutes for it to get its first lock. Sometimes it happens quick, sometimes it can take a while. Make sure your program is set to Com 4 for GPS.

Re: How-To Get GPS/Rev A on Sprint Touch

Quick question.. Is this using the a-gps built into the chipset? (Like what the Mogul is using)

Thanks.

I believe its a combination of both aGPS and real GPS, like the Mogul.

Re: How-To Get GPS/Rev A on Sprint Touch

Has there been confirmation yet of being able to go back to stock Sprint ROM or other custom ROMs?

Re: How-To Get GPS/Rev A on Sprint Touch

Thanks for that sticky but I have 2 lil questions :
- Would this work with telus mobility or it's only sprint?
- If it does indeed work with telus mobility, would this overwrite the rom it install when I usually hard reset (I mean the original telus rom)?
THanks to you and Cokeman
