I really hope someone here can help me resolve a GPS issue with my Alltel Tour. I have posted on Crackberry but haven't been able to get an answer that would get my GPS working. This all started when I tried to do an update along with a hybrid install.
I have an in issue with my Alltel 9630 Tour. After reading about upgrading to the leaked .419 OS I decided to give it a try. This was my first attempt at an update of any kind. One of the reasons I updated was having read that I would be able to get a GPS lock using Google Maps which I have never been able to do with my Tour. I tried to load Driphter's DV4 hybrid while I was doing the .419 update. I downloaded the .419 update and the DV4 java folder twice. Both times I loaded .419 on my laptop then deleted the java folder in loader files and replaced it with the DV4 java folder. Each time I tried to update my Tour I got an error message.
The application "English UK" cannot be loaded,because it requires the following applications that are not available:
I then replaced the original Java folder and the update went through perfectly. Any idea why I was not able to load DV4 with the update?
The problem I have now is that not only can I not get a GPS lock with Google Maps I can't get it with BlackBerry Maps either. My Tour has never had an issue getting a lock with BB Maps. Now it gives an "Unable To Acquire" error after only about six seconds, which seems a little quick to me. It would search longer than that before. And of course Google Maps still shows GPS as unavailable.
I would go back to my original OS but I made a mistake in thinking that a backup would save my OS. I now know that was not the case nor can I find a link to the official Alltel version.
If anyone can give my any advice on getting my GPS functional again with either BB or Google maps I would really appreciate it. Be it with .419 or the official Alltel version really doesn't matter at this point. Thanks.
Okay, so now I have a problem. I deleted everything I could find on my laptop. I downloaded the .419 update again, loaded it and deleted the vendor file. I reinstalled Desktop Manager. I wiped my phone with BBSAK. When I connect my phone to the laptop DM does not show a device connected and therefore does not attempt to update it. My phone has and error message on a white screen that says Reload Software 507. Where do I go from here? Please tell me there is a way to get an OS back on my phone. Thanks again for any help here.
Thanks Breiti, managed to get the OS loaded. Problem now is I don't have BB Maps on my phone. I tried to download it but got a message saying my device does not meet the system requirements needed to support BB Maps. What now? Thanks again.
Got BB Maps installed with DM. Sorry I didn't try that before posting again. This is all new to me. Anyway. I am now back to my original issue. BB Maps will not get a lock. It gives an error after only about six seconds. Any ideas?
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 18.104.22.168x there could be some issues with BB maps...but with .419?!
