Re: [GUIDE] Fix for no GPS lock after Froyo flash

first thing, GPS works fine as far as acquiring a signal lock, BUT does any1 else notice this:
when epic is stock(never rooted or anything) compass mode in street view on google maps works perfect.(also tried it on an Evo, worked fine) meaning when u search for a location(address) u can tap the address and in compass mode u can spin 360 degrees and what u see will rotate with u perfectly.
ever since i went custom, compass mode in street view on google maps always shows the camera view straight into the sky and can never get it to view straight in front of me. is this sumthin new?? can it be corrected?? i reported the image to google, but jus got the regular BS email, "thank you for telling us.....we're looking into this.....thank you, come again" is this sumthin new?? or can it be corrected?? TIA

add-on: tested on Epic experience rom/supernova rom/nebula rom...same result unfortunately

Re: [GUIDE] Fix for no GPS lock after Froyo flash

Just about all of the rooted custom GB rom options have the GPS fix baked in. Plus lots of other cool stuff that will keep your Epic from getting old. Might be worth looking into. If I could do it with my geekless DNA, probably anybody can.

Re: [GUIDE] Fix for no GPS lock after Froyo flash

Can you still use Z4Root??? or does this not work in gingerbread? Does this break the warranty?

Re: [GUIDE] Fix for no GPS lock after Froyo flash

Z4Root was never updated after Froyo. NG for GB.
Yes, rooting breaks the warranty. But you have the option of reverting back to stock (if you learn how) if you ever need a warranty replacement for a hardware issue.
Don't know if there's a no-root fix or not.
For more info on rooting, etc, check out QBKing's how-to videos: [ACS] [HOW TO] Root, Flash Roms/Kernels/Themes, CWM, and update! (67 videos) 8/7/11 - xda-developers
