    I just got the update this morning. The screen was different when my alarm was going off. Is this update going to stop my phone from freezing all the time and me having to pull my battery 2-3 times a day? I would like that.

    I don't know unless he's talking about the update.zip. Contact the guy and see if he can post just that GPS file for you since he's already extracted it.

    In Froyo, a lot of our phones got the pitch axis upside down (I don't know if all of them were, maybe they were and the ones who didn't complain never knew they had the problem). What this caused was VERY EXTREMELY erractic compass, and things like Google Skymaps would never point within 30 degrees. What you had to do was go into settings/display/horizontal calibration and lay the phone upsidedown on a table with the calibrate button visible, press it while phone was upside down and this would correct the orientation of the pitch axis, so compass apps would work. Now you don't have to do this.

    Not too sure about the GPS...when I first updated I would get 6-7 out of 10, yesterday it was 4 of 10, this morning it is only 2 of 10. I restarted the phone and got same result. If it continues, I'm considering applying the EI22 GPS fix. I'll copy the gpsd file from the system vendor bin folder first in case it doesn't work.

    This is getting slightly off topic but useful for those of us who want to stay as close to stock as possible without rooting.

    I used Odin & CWM to install the GPS fix to EI22 without rooting. But now we've learned that the EL30 update will fail as long as we have the gpsd file from the gps fix, so we need to get the original gpsd file in there.

    Is it possible to copy the original gpsd file into the gps update zip file and re-apply the zip? Wouldn't that put the original gpsd file back in there without rooting and enable us to apply the EL30 update?

    If that won't work, how about reapplying EI22? Or will that fail, just like EL30, due to the gpsd file?

    Definitely worth a shot.... CWM will overwrite the modded GPS fix and replace it with the stock file. Then you should be able to update.. Sounds good in theory... Lets see how real world goes... Report back on this...

    I proposed two solutions...

    Are you suggesting I reinstall EI22 or modding the GPS fix zip file with the original gpsd file and reapplying it?

    If running the GPS fix with the original gpsd file is advised, does anyone know where I can get the original gpsd file? If you have it handy please post it

    Can I just say that as someone who has random fits of OCD that the fact that the Icons for asphalt and qik still show under apps really ticks me off?

    Just closing the loop for now. Factory reset resolved the issue of not able to receive voice call (force close of com.android.com), and for me not able to listen to voice mail, also. I am not happy that I had to do that because of course all my apps data are wiped along with everything.

    Prior to doing the factory reset, what I noticed is whenever a voice call comes and after selecting force close of the com.android.com app (volume button prior to the force close does not stop the ringing) the radio does a reset. If I happen to have WiFi on, then after the radio resets, both WiFi and 3G icons remain in the notification bar. If I togger the WiFi setting, then the 3G go away after WiFi is connected.

    Same here. I know it'll affect anyone that switches to this new upgrade but I'm disappointed that I can't see my entire wallpaper anymore. Why change something that wasn't even broken?

    Were there a whole bunch of users complaining about the wallpaper moving and I just missed that along the way?

    My guess is that it wasn't a fix but a new bug introduced. Fix one thing break 3 others... It's the never-ending story.
    Just my $2 worth.

    It used to be my 2 cents worth but things have gone up a bit because of inflation.

    OK, I have been away from quirking my device for about 2 months. Please refresh my memory.
    I'm on EI22, and rooted & haven't gotten the update yet.
    So correct me if I'm wrong, but if I wanted to manually update:
    I would have to Odin and reinstall EI22 (to unroot) then apply the update.zip file posted in the 1st post. correct?

    Also, someone mentioned early in the thread that they were having problems receiving calls (FCs). Has anyone else had this problem? I want to know if this is a major problem before I attempt to install.

    Thx.

    Yes, you need to ODIN back to EC05, apply the update to EI22 and then go ahead and apply the update to EL30 (it's already out and you don't have to wait for the OTA). Then you will want to flash the new kernel, CWM 5.2.0.7, Superuser, and the EI22 GPS Fix.

    Here's my story. After my OTA failed this morning because of the GPS fix I installed, I looked around for other users with the problem and found this post as well.

    xda-developers - View Single Post - Direct google link to download EL30 update here!

    The only thing was that after trying the remove zip the update failed as well so I took the above original GPS file from EL22 posted in the quote and replaced it in the original GPS fix zip script.

    Then took the official EL22 to EL30 update file, renamed it to update.zip threw it on the root of my SD card and used the stock android recovery to manually update (because no matter what I did I coult not get the OTA to push again).

    Worked like a charm for me (did not get the dreaded error 7 failing on the original gps file check) and the GPS seems to work in Telenav without a lockup at least that I tested and i can see 12 gps sats! If anyone wants to try I've attached my version here.

    I just did the exact same thing. I used the oldgps.zip file from the previous post rather than the one posted at xda.

    Everything seemed to go smoothly. Now the only question is if the GPS works well enough for me or if I'll need to reapply the GPS fix.

    I'm most nervouse about this because after some initial GPS pains with EI22 my GPS suddenly became ROCK SOLID. If it wasn't for some major, unfixable calendar sync issues I wouldn't have even bothered with EL30. Unfortunately, the update did not resolve this problem so I factory reset may very well be in my future... I really wanted to avoid that!

    I experienced another problem after installing EL30 that pissed me off. I couldn't access any of the apps installed on my SD card. They were all grayed out and when I tried to open them I got an error to the effect of "this application is not installed." I thought I was going to have to reinstall all those apps along with possibly losing all their settings and data. Fortunately, after about five minutes all these apps came back and everything is back to normal.

    Only thing left is to give the GPS a spin and see how it works and confirm that the keyboard skipping is finally gone.

    Hi all! Just saw this on XDA, this is ONLY for users running MTD ROMs that do not want to wipe back to stock:

    It's a new recovery created by CM dev wtogami for those that do not want to install the full EL30 ROM............ this allows MTD ROMs to flash MODEM deltas ONLY, including the EI22-to-EL30 update.zip, without having to ODIN to EC05......you must have kexec, so all CM7 Nightlies, #12 + above are set.......here is the link:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1463400

    ALSO, once you're on EL30: for more advanced users, wtogami swiftly created an Unusual ROM (you'll see!) that allows you to go back to Stock EL30 just long enough to Update Profile + Update PRL, then *presto* you're back to your MTD set-up......excellent for those of us on CM7!! Here is the link:

    [MTD][EL30][KEXEC][CM7] Boot EL30 stock from sdcard - xda-developers

    It just keeps getting better guys!

    *Hope this is the right place to announce this, could be helpful to users on MTD that are unsure whether to upgrade.........mods, please move if you wish *
    Don't forget to CLICK THANK YOU IF SOMEONE WAS HELPFUL IN ENHANCING YOUR DEVICE!

    I use my phone in a corporate environment and have no issues with exchange calendar sync and email. My GPS seems to be working okay, no lockups with Telenav. Your SD issue could be because you didn't give the phone enough time to scan the SD card after removing either a USB cable or boot?

    Just a thought.

    Thanks! That one (oldgps.zip) worked for me, whereas Remove_GPS_Fix.zip from xda-developers did not. For what it's worth, here are my early impressions of EL30:

    • When I reverted back to the EI22 gpsd, I would lock to 4 or 5 satellites. With EL30, I got 5 (though it did lock pretty quickly). For comparison sake: I got 10 or 11 satellites when I had applied GPS_Fix on EI22, in that same spot in front of my house earlier tonight. So I don't see any improvement. I'll monitor it as time goes on, hoping for no freezes/restarts. I may just re-apply GPS_Fix at some point.
    • Consider me lucky, I have not had any issues with incoming calls.
    • I see that EL30 STILL doesn't include the ability to video chat in Google Talk, as was supposed to be available in Android 2.3.4 and above.

    I think you'll find that you will want to reapply the EI22 GPS fix. I did on both our phones and am very pleased with the results.
