QuickGPS fix!!!

If you can't get QuickGPS to properly update on your device, use the attached mortscript and you should be fine. Well, it may only work for USA only, not certain about that maybe someone in another location can try it out, otherwise maybe someone can modify it for another location? Also you need to make sure it runs at least once a week for the data to be current, you could put it in your start up folder, that way it would run every time you rebooted your phone

In order for this file to work on your phone you need to download and install MortScript.

You can download MortScript here
http://www.sto-helit.de/index.php?mo...=list&entry=18


EDIT: updated the file so that you can edit it to change the servers, here is the contents of this file:

Code:
Download( "http://www.htcusainc.com/clm/packedEphemeris.ee", "\Windows\xtra.bin" )




#Download( "http://xtra1.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin", "\Windows\xtra.bin" )

#Download( "http://xtra2.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin", "\Windows\xtra.bin" )

#Download( "http://xtra3.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin", "\Windows\xtra.bin" )
You can just open it with notepad and uncomment whichever server you want to download the data from, but remember to comment the rest otherwise it will run all lines without comments and the last one will the the file you have. Hope this helps anyone! I did this cuz I couldn't get QuickGPS working on my wife's Vogue at all, it would run, but not successfully download the file to the windows folder and "hacked" versions for some reason where this issue is "fixed", would not run, give me the "QuickGPS is missing come of its components" or something like that.

So two issues this can solve:
#1. If you can run quickGPS but it keeps giving you the download error, it will not fix QuickGPS, but it WILL download the same data and place it in the correct location, then if you open QuickGPS again it will show that the data has been updated.

#2 If you CAN run QuickGPS, get the download error, but CANNOT run the "Fixed" version of QuickGPS due to the error I mentioned above.


EDIT: I just uploaded another MortScript file "QuickGPS4.mscr", I did not make this one. It basically does what QuickGPS is supposed to do. I found it here:http://www.sto-helit.de/forum/viewto...60df6466f1fbf3

It downloades the agps data from another server, with another filename, then renames it to the filename used by QuickGPS and properly places it in the windows dir. Remember, this is for those who already have QuickGPS installed, but are getting errors when trying to update the data. Works for me, please post back your results. Hopefully it will work for others having the QuickGPS problem.
