Another ppcwarez support for an unresolved official problem
I did again, as I did for Dell Axim x51v WM6 WPA fix n Sep 29, 2007
this archive contains a gpsidril.dll file from wm6.1 ii2 omnia rom, and 3 reduced cache settings of
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver
\Drivers\Samsung GPS Hardware\InputBufferSize: set from 4096 to 512
\Drivers\Samsung GPS Hardware\OutputBufferSize: set from 4096 to 512
\Multiplexer\MaxBufferSize: set from 16384 to 1024
Besides, I suggest you:
(1) Use COM4: for software port
(2) Do not forget to insert your simcard, and do not use use your phone as a standalone GPS device.
weird gps driver needs simcard (I don't mean internet connection, or Xtra).
(3) Use JB1 Radio ROM. It is possibly contain best wm6.5 code for gps fixes now (March 1 2010).
You have i8000 omnia II
gpgs fix was fast and reliable in wm6.1 but poor when you upgraded to wm6.5
Why? Did Samsung messed things up? Or is it Microsoft again?
Microsoft gives source code of gpsid.dll to manufacturers. And they makes their own drivers.
For example Omnia uses gpsidril.dll and htc uses GPSID_QCT.dll in their devices
Microsoft manages gps for better fixes, he makes drivers for it(gpsid.dll), right?
but sometimes bugs happen. They made mistakes in the past.
I think they did again!
Some Omnia and htc owners get better fix after reducing cache
How could it be possible? Weird.
Both HTC and Omnia owners suffers gps reception and are satisfied by a translating driver, GPS Mod Driver.
So the idea is: use wm6.1 gps driver on wm6.5 i8000's.
How to install?
Please make a back-up of your original \windows\gpsidril.dll
install my fix in auotomatic installation folder
if an error happens, you must manually copy gpsidril.dll in manual instal folder to \windows folder of your device
I extracted wm6.1 ii2's gpsidril.dll for you.
Just copy it to your \windows folder with force by using Resco explorer or something similar.
Don't forget to backup your original gpsidril.dll before doing this.
Until Microsoft finds the bug in gpsid.dll and Samsung makes a good gpsidril.dll this is the temporary fix.
It is your duty to make a good driver that doesn't need GPSModDriver or reducing cache.
We all paid for that devices.
