    Do you get the same issue with e.g. google maps? If you would be on a much higher OS version, I could understand, since it was noted that with 5.0.0.46x there could be some issues with BB maps...but with .419?!

    Downloaded Google Maps again. It tells me that GPS is temporarily unavailable. I have a curve here too. It searches for a while but gets a lock using BB Maps.

    So it is google maps and BB maps? You don't have by incident another GPS app on your berry? To me it sounds like either an OS issue (maybe worth trying another OS version) or a real hardware issue with your berry (hope not, sorry!)

    It sounds like you already set Global GPS to enabled, but it might also be worth checking individual application permissions.

    If you are still getting the error about en_GB not being installed, use loader (just like you did to install maps) to remove & reinstall the en_GB language pack. (I think this can also be done using shrinkOS..)

    Beriti, No other GPS apps installed. Could an update cause a hardware issue? I know it worked fine minutes before I did the update.

    Travis, I have been looking for where the permissions can be set. I thought pressing the Berry key would give me an edit permissions but all I get is Switch App and Close.

    Edit: found where to set permissions. Set everything to allow. Still no gps lock. :no:

    I wouldn't expect a physical damage by the update, but why not a malfunction - well, you could further verify it by installing apps that are using GPS - e.g. Poynt, or Navigation, or to go back to your original OS, where everything was fine.

    How did you perform the update? Could you describe the process in a few words for me - maybe something went wrong there?!
