did you test before kernel change. My mistake when you said binary I thought you meant the kernel not the Bin4ry script which I seen is updated to v18.

@Putbinoot thanks for all the wonderful work you have done here, I'm definitely gonna try and grab a Jiayu g3 now :D

P.s. do you have a Huawei ascend g300? If you do, could you do a side by side comparison of the G300 and the Jiayu. Maybe just post some images or even a video if you have the time. Thanks :lol:

Yeh mate I did test it before I updated the phone but it didnt get a lock. I'm going to run a better test when I get a chance and give it plenty of time to lock onto any sat's with a clear view of the sky. I'll try that app as well.

Ok, I've just tried faster GPS which I thought was actually a good program as the ntp server wasnt set but I've still not managed to get a lock on any sats even with the assisted gps active. I'm indoors near a window at the moment so that may be the issue but my old nokia x6 would get a lock in the same conditions.

G3 was struggling to get locked.

I tried this:
  • installed Faster GPS and added UK server
  • enabled and updated EPO and AGPS
  • ran mobileuncle - YGPS (information tab, pressed cold than full)

faster fix alters gps.conf but the g3 does not have this file so not sure how it sets the agps info, can't remember if you are root but if you are then start mobileuncle/engineer mode MTK/YGPRS and see if it picks up satellites. If not we can compare settings in and around here to see if something has been changed by mistake in here. Make sure you are outside when you try this.

There are one or two unofficial JB ROMs for G3. Still unstable though.

I wont bother touching any of the unofficial ones. Better to wait for the official update. I think it wont be for at least a month yet though.

Not sure what more JB would bring to the phone, ICS does everything I need.
