    How to get GPS working?

    im operating 4.5.0.138,

    wondering as to which OS you need to operate to get the GPS to work?

    I used to have an OS that let it work, but forgot when I downgraded a while back.

    Can anyone give feedback, id be tremendously grateful.

    I believe it was 168 that was leaked that took care of that issue. I will see what I can come up with and see if we cant get ya going.

    hello,
    Great post.
    If you did step 1 or step2 and your GPS still can not lock onto satellites, then check the following settings.
    Settings>>Phone>>Services>>Location Settings
