I recently asked a question on this site about how to stop my USB transfers from being so slow on my rooted Galaxy S2. It was suggested to me that I update my kernel and/or ROM. That seemed reasonable, so I did. I now have the latest kernel version and latest ROM.

And now, after doing so, my GPS is completely unresponsive.

So now I'm playing feature-whack-a-mole again. Something I was doing a while back when I could either have my compass or my WiFi, but not both.

How do I get out of this? How do I get my GPS back and not be juggling every other feature on my phone?

(... and I'm not even sure my USB problems are solved...)

    Sorry to see you struggling with issues. Have you seen the app called "GPS Aids" in Google Play Store? I stumbled on this app once and I believe this is the one for Samsung phones which has GPS related issues. Have try, with a pinch of salt ;-)

  • I also stumbled on an app in play store, that explains the issue. play.google.com/store/apps/…

The GPS was fixed by downloading a "tweak" script, whatever that is, from here. I originally found it on this thread on XDA-Developers.
