[GUIDE] Fix for no GPS lock after Froyo flash
 
[FIX][GPS][CONFIRMED] Fix for no GPS lock after Froyo flash

This is based on the post by SINN, as well as the method I, and many others have used to get mine working. Okay, Let's go do this...

Method 1 (Do First):
1) Start from a DI18 ROM/Modem with WORKING GPS
2) ODIN in DK28 Modem
3) Restart and verify GPS lock in DI18 ROM + DK28 Modem - It could take a minute or two
3a) If this step fails go to method 2
4) Flash a DK28 ROM, verify GPS lock

Method 2 (Long Way Home):
1) Start with stock DI18 + working GPS
2) ODIN in modem
3) Restart and verify GPS functionality with DI18 ROM + DK28 GPS
2) ODIN in DK28 full
3) Restart and reverify gps lock
3a) If this step fails, take a nap, and return to step 1)
4) Reroot and flash in new DK28 based ROM
5) Reverify GPS lock

I found another way of doing this too. I can confirm that this works.

"Fixing the GPS no fix issue on the Samsung Epic 4g requires you to do a manufacturer's reset by obtaining the MSL code from Sprint. Once you get the MSL Code, remove the SD Card and Enter ##786# on the dialer keypad. You will see two options: View and Reset. Tap on the Reset option and you will get a prompt to enter the MSL code. At this point you will be asked if you want to do a manufacter's reset, enter yes. The phone will shut down and reset itself after a few seconds. Once the process is complete, the phone will go through a hands free activation. After the activation process, updates may be downloaded and installed. Now that all updates have been performed, you may check to see if your GPS is working by going to Google Maps. You should be able to lock in GPS signal in under 10 seconds. Thats it. Your GPS woes are over."


Actually it didn't automatically activate for me, I went into SprintZone and it did it from there.
