Yes, that is the idea but here's a Clockwork installable zip file that does the job for you.

OK. Nightly 57 did not fix the problem for me. Then I flashed this zip and since then no crashes. Tried maps again and again, a few more GPS dependent applications and then tried again after I restarted the phone. So far so good.

The GPS reboots weren't as frequent after 7.0.2 & n57, it wasn't every time, but it still crashed sometimes & it could be slow. This fix seems to clear up all the gps issues.

I'm noticing other crashes after using this fix, lots of screen freezes, I'm not sure that it doesn't cause other stability problems. It seems to fix the GPS reboot problem & it speeds up GPS fixes, but I think it might be less stable overall.

I'm not having any issues like that but I'm running a build that was built together with that gps.blade.so and not N57 with the new libs injected. I don't think it should matter but perhaps it does?

I'm currently running this build (I think): http://www.mediafire...c98rne48p7s7c0e

It is NOT an official build so DO NOT REPORT ANY BUGS if you use it.
Basicly it's CM7 pretty much at the same level as N57 or perhaps just a bit "newer" like 57 and a half. It uses GPSSHIM and the old libloc libs (GPSSHIM is a "fake" gps.blade.so that makes it possible to use the old libs with Gingerbread). It also has a kernel that has changes that isn't present in N57 and also the kernel has some touchsceen tweaks. It also has the proximity.init readded but that didn't help anyone but it doesn't break anything asfaik so it doesn't matter. Other than that it should work like N57.

n57 & 7.0.2 have some gps fixes in anyway, the reboot problem wasn't far off being fixed, it was only sometimes. with your libs injected into n57, it's as if the old gen1 gps causing screen freezes & crashes when waking from sleep bug is back. i turned gps off & it hasn't crashed again since, so it's definitely gps triggering the bug.

I've been using your lib wrappers for a while. GPS wasn't causing trouble anyway.

Yesterday google maps kept crashing almost as soon as it started. It eventually stayed up.

I don't know if the cause can be put to your wrappers or not, I merely mention it in case it is helpful.

Sunday 1 May I upgraded to Gen2 and installed CM7 N57. Monday 2 May, running AllSport GPS my phone rebooted 3 times whilst out on a bike ride.
Today, saw this post so installed the GPS fix and running AllSport GPS my phone rebooted after 31 minutes. I'll try another app and see how I get on but I'm not going for another bike ride now.

On Monday the first time phone reboot was also around 31 minutes, then an hour and then 18 minutes, after which I gave up. I didn't see that it had rebooted tonight until I got home so didn't get a chance to restart AllSport GPS

I'll report back when I have some more results...

I forgot I was going to test this again, sorry about that. I flashed N59 last night as I forgot. This morning I've ran AllSport GPS for 49 minutes and it didn't reboot, this is obviously too early to tell. I'll run some more tests when I get chance

I see N60 is out, so my question is do I keep with N59 and run more tests with that or do I keep up to date with the nightly builds? Not sure what to do, for now I think I'll stick with N59 until the weekend and see how I get on.

Last night (04 May) ran for 48 minutes without reboot; this morning got to 57 minutes and it rebooted. This is N59 without the GPS fix. Does anyone know if the GPS fix will work with later nightly builds?

Installed N61 this morning (5 May) and went for a walk at lunchtime; rebooted after 28 minutes :mellow:
I then installed the GPS over N61 and tried Endomondo on the way home from work in the car; reboot after 28 minutes. Haven't done a full wipe yet so might give that a go and see what happens

I'm running CM7 N95 and I'm having the crashes with Google Maps.
Is this fix still usable for me or can I get into trouble when I apply it?

Thanx

installed the patch zip on top of cm7 and now I am enjoying no reboots, thanks! only strange behavior is wake-up from sleep can take a few persistent jabs on the power button but this is a small price to pay.
