Very nice improvement. Thanks a lot! :)

Vagus, by the way, is there any skin or hack mode to iGO2006 to run it at 400x800? :roll:

Hi Vagus,

You are my hero. I have got my new Samsung Omnia II two months ago. I am happy with most of it except the GPS performance. But after installed your gpsfix, the GPS sensitivity is greatly improved. The tracking of GPS is now seconds instead minutes.

Thanks very much for your work and sharing.

Is it possible to upgrade only the phone part and keep the others (PDA part, CSC and bin)

I had patched dll and other mods, after changing phone part to JF5 I experience serious problems with GPS, some hangups, freeze and bad accuracy. I don't say you will have the same but I'm changing ROM, doing HR and will test this new phone part on newest builds.

Hi - Would u be king enough to give me some step by step instructions on uploading this file onto my i8000. Wut of done so far is used Winrar to decompress the file. I got an automatic install folder with GPSfix.cab. Wuts the next step. Do i use a device like Resco Explorer to upload to the unit? Is it a simple copy paste to the windows directory of the i8000? Can i leave or rename the original file? Any info will help.

it is said that, Galaxy S (Android) has gps problems. Look
Thank you vagus for your contributions to WM community.

Samsung makes me angry because they are using unknown or low quality gps chips in their phones. If software (driver) fails, don't expect to be a fix from them.
We know the name of the gps chip in iphone4 (Broadcom BCM4750), but not in i8000 (Maybe one of These )
There is a speculation that S Galaxy S (SGS) uses new Broadcom 20751: Link
I wish Samsung use dedicated gps chips such as latest sirf or mtk (low power) chips as Asus did in Asus P535.
I think they use combined chips which may also doing FM radio or even GSM operations. Cheap method but quality depends on manufacturers software or hardware accomplishment.
There is even the possibility that, some of the gps chips are defective, or have different brand names. You know, some i8000 users aren't complaining about pgs performance, strange.

I onwned a P535 before I bought my I8000. And I can tell you, my GPS is working as good as in my P535! Only after 5 or 6 hours of driving somtimes the GPS-chip crashens and Omnia needs to reeboot to find GPS again. P535 never did anything like that.

It seems to be a "good-chip" in my Omnia.

But I can tell you: GPS-chip in P750 was REALLY nice!

Regards

Please make a back-up of your original windows\\gpsidril.dll
install my fix in "automatic install" folder
if an error happens, you must manually copy gpsidril.dll in "manual install folder" to windows folder of your device

Until Microsoft finds the bug in gpsid.dll and Samsung makes a good gpsidril.dll this is the temporary fix.
It is their duty to make a good driver that doesn't need GPSModDriver or reducing cache. We are the customers, and paid for those devices instead of iPhOnE


Hi guys.

in my Omnia 2 i8000 the gpsidril.dll is stored in the rom, so its no chance to replace, without flashing a new ROM / Firmware right?

You cannot delete rom files, but make them hidden.
You can force copying files over rom files by resco explorer. rom files don't deleted by hides.
if you want to revert back to rom file, to unhide it, just rename gpsidril.dll to gpsidrilx.dll, and then delete gpsidrilx.dll
now hiding rom file, shows up.

hint for users having problems with gps, and want to hard-reset device.
do-not hard reset ! Just copy a new radio (phone) rom with octans. check "preserve memory". do not select any other rom file or csc. Only select radio rom (16,384 kb) file.

I was playing with nogarder gps, to show something to my friend. I forget it, amd nogarder left running in the background for hours.
I then forced it to close with Samsung Taskswitcher. Then my gps port dis-appeared.

igo8 cannot find gps port, and nogarder gps doesn't show any gps information.

I wrote Phone_I8000XXJF1.bin with octans (without hardresetting), and now my gps port appeared again. I will now check, if that radio rom really doesn't need vagus fix. I will inform you later.
