it was hard for me to convince people the importance of my wpa fix 2 years ago:
Then, every Dell Axim x51v, or HP HX4700 or HTC Universal ROM cooker included my wpa fix in wm6.x cooked ROMs.
I hope, this time microsoft or Samsung corrects the driver, and we don't need older ones.
I suppose, there is nothing wrong with i8000 gps hardware. If people having problems, it must be software related.
JB1 Radio ROM, COM4: software port, reduced size buffers and ii2 version gpsidril.dll gave best fixes for me, so for the other i8000 wm6.5 users.
Thanks a lot, vagus. For so many things: this fix and explaining (and all your other work ).
Had no time, but will test this tonight and come back with details. I'm on 6.5, UK firmware II9 and won't update to JB1 but will tell you how it goes for me.
Just curious.... do you think it's possible that on some operator-branded rom the issue has been solved?
I ask 'cause on the very first gps cold fix on my O2 (WM 6.5 rom branded by the italian operator "Wind") I was indoor (close to a window, but indoor nonetheless), cloud covered sky, and it got 7 satellites in 2 minutes max, while on my Omnia 1 (no brand wm 6.1 rom) the first cold fix took me about 15 minutes in the open under a 100% clear sky
Vostradamus, in your case it's very possible that XTRA data helped...
My O2 takes over 4 mins to get a fix from cold start without XTRA, and that's about what others have confirmed too.
