Sprint PRI UPDATE - 5 sec locks - A Must for quick GPS on the Vogue!

found this post by holo in the titan forum, but tried it on my Vogue and worked spectacularly!

I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH - Verified working with sprint - all others try at your own risk!!!!

Background info:
This updates your PRI, allowing access to sprints GPS assistance server.
It is taken from the 3.49 beta customizations from the titan

Steps:
1. Unzip cab file from:
ftp://ppcgeeks.com/Vogue/Users/No1USTAD/PPST.zip

2. Go to the Windows Folder and click PPST.exe it will run, then automatically soft reset.


The ppst thread here for the vogue did not help me (couldn't find the ppst.exe file in windows with the normal file explorer (using show all files), however, after running this i was getting consistent locks at about 5 seconds COLD START, and locking on to 3-4 more sats than usual, up to 8-9 at a time.

Re: Sprint PRI UPDATE - 5 sec locks - A Must for quick GPS on the Vogue!

odd. locks before were so bad i stopped using my internal receiver altogether, with some locks maybe occurring after 2 min. and i've never had one at my computer desk before, where i now can grab 4 sats in <10 sec.

Well. either way, I'm happy

In my case, I am certainly _NOT_ questioning your experience. I too have seen the full specturm of results with the same PPST and Radio combination.

On my way to work today it took me two tries, a soft-reset and eight minutes to get a lock on 3 ... While at work, I did a hard-reset, installed the same ROM, ran PPST and when I walked out the door (for lunch), I had locked on 8 in about 125 yards of walking.

Best regards,

I'm already getting 10 second locks with the leaked Sprint rom and running PPST.

Sounds like a cool fix for people that are still having problems.

I will probably end up going with the official sprint update when it comes out due to the battery drain issue. Although, if I soft reset after using GPS, I don't have the crazy battery drain.

Finally, it works!!!! Since I didn't use the leaked rom, but a cooked one, I didn't have the ppst file. I didn't want to have to flash twice and reinstall everything again.

Many thanks!!!
