VZW AGPS Fixed at XDA

GC14 over at XDA came up with a fix for Verizon GPS Locks.

Link Here to original post

I was looking at 5,10, 15 minute locks if I got any at all. I applied his newest QPST settings and am currently getting 10-15 sec locks every time. I took the battery out several times to start cold and it worked great every time.

Chef 3.02
Radio 3.42.30
PRI 1.37_002

No. The fix isn't actually done just on the phone. Other software is required. It's not just as simple as putting some registry changes into a cab file.

He's right. It's done over usb with QPST. The phone has to be put in programming mode to do it. Not even the custom roms or radio roms even touch this area when flashing, so it will most likely hold no matter how many times you flash radios and roms.

Re: VZW AGPS Fixed at XDA

I have to recommend this fix for anyone on Verizon using GPS. Worked and amazing I now have 5-10 second locks with at least 7 satellites. Awesome - oh and he created a detailed VZW Wiki so just read that and there should be no confusion:
