Doesn't work for me in the Navigation app either. I just get the "Waiting for Location" wheel spinning indefinitely.

Before anyone asks...

I have the "Use GPS satellites" option checked in Location & security settings.

I would think the radio firmware is tied to GPS so maybe flash a new radio?
Edit- I don't know if it will help but try updating to the latest rootfs, make sure you rename it to just rootfs.img after you unzip it and swap it with your old one. Being that its a fresh install and GPS works in WM.

My GPS also works after flashing to Energy Titanium July 6th Build (no Sense) and then installing (copying) FRX07.1 to my SD card. I did this just this morning too.

I have FRX07.1 on my TP2, but my 98% battery drained within 5 hours without any usage, on Windows, it lasts 1.5 days, any suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Turn off auto sync for apps, extend refresh rate sync time for email and/or Gmail. Exit out of apps correctly so they aren't running in the background. Turn off GPS when not in use.

I turned off Auto Sync, thanks. I don't check email/gmail, so how do I turn this off?

I am very new to Android, how do I exit/close out apps and GPS?

Also, I have to press very hard on my PP2, it was very light tough on Windows side. Thanks in advance.

For email in the app press your windows hard key, then touch account settings, then set email check frequency.
For Gmail open app then windows hard key, then touch accounts, windows hard key press again, account settings, uncheck auto sync.
Back hard key while in apps will exit correctly, GPS is in settings> location&security.
FRX is slightly less sensitive than WM but you shouldn't need to press "hard", you can ruin your digitizer that way, try using one of the posted calibration files and see if that helps.
You're welcome
