Thanks for the patch. By applying it I think Google maps located quicker on my phone.
As to the Network Time Protocol Server part, It's better for UK users to use following setting:

NTP_SERVER=uk.pool.ntp.org
People from other countries can find NTP server in your own country.


thanks for the tip
the patch had no effect as far as i can tell
but maybe now after editing NTP to my country it will help

This is part of reason why I was enquiring as to what the patch does in a previous post... most advice I have read on GPS speedup seems to be about adding something like:

server 0.europe.pool.ntp.org
server 1.europe.pool.ntp.org
server 2.europe.pool.ntp.org
server 3.europe.pool.ntp.org

server 0.uk.pool.ntp.org
server 1.uk.pool.ntp.org
server 2.uk.pool.ntp.org
server 3.uk.pool.ntp.org

to /etc/gps.config - obviously with appropriate region and country codes.

I am curious if the patch adds a fixed set of codes (and if so what? - can anyone who has run the patch check?) - or are the codes added in some smart way that determines region automatically? Or does it replace the whole file?

I think also apps such as GPS Status may overwrite the gps.config file (via Manage A-GPS State option) so probably not a good idea to use both?

Hi guys. I'm new to this community, so I wanted to do something for the community. :D

So, am presenting you a little A-Gps mod / patch for faster satellite acquiring. I think you all familiar with this mod, but no one did put it on a ROM or a single patch, so let me be the first guy to do this. (my excuse to all of You if I'm ain't the first)

It's a simple installation ZIP archive for your Clockwork Mod recovery , Boot, install, enjoy (You all now that ;), right). You could do a backup, just in case. You never know....



DOWNLOAD

Please put some comments if it's working? I'm using a iGO ver.8.4.2.139242 and in open space (outside) acquire gps signal in 2 seconds, in close space (house) in 6-8 seconds.



Don't forget to say thanks! ;)

Greeting from Serbia!


Is this safe? I've done similar to my blade and had to backup rom because GPS stopped working :D

BTW: Hvala drugar

Don't know - I would say why not try editing the file and try, but... I have tried editing the file via root browser and I can't save changes. I don't know why - tried adding file permissions to original rw-r--r-- but that didn't help.

Anyone able to suggest why I would not be able to save edits on this file?

Also still would be interested to know what the OP's patch does to /etc/gps.conf?

Today i changed The values to "de" again . IT works! But i dont think faster.

You can edit the zip-file in PC and flash it to your device. Thats how i do that.

Have you wipe it all? (data,dalvik & partition cache and battery stats) This is no System important file. System can run without this. Something other is a problem.
