downloaded the update... it's nice that it came with GOOGLE NAVIGATION but it sucks that my GPS still doesn't work... WTH!?

i wonder if it's because I did the manual fix last week. now when i try to access the LBSTestMode menu it won't let me do it. is there a new passcode to access it again?

do you guys think it overrode the fix i did last week with this update?

the only time the it locks my location is when i turn the wireless mode on which won't help me if i'm outdoors.

comment?

Did anyone do a factory reset before installing the update? My GPS seems to be unchanged (6-8 satellites visible, no lock) after the update.

After initial install I got a lock with 8 satellites. Just tried it again after 6 hours and now I can' get a lock. Makes no sense. I didn't install anything or change anything. Just normal email, mms stuff....

No matter how much I try the update my phone always says "Communication Failed" I've tried it via wifi, I've tried it OTA, about every combination of settings imaginable...anybody have any idea?

BTW, I did see an improvement, usually when I did lock on (took a long time) the best I would get in Google Maps was 50 meters. I now lock on faster and have about 10 meters.

Before the update I never used the gps test app, but still I know I rarely got a gps lock. tried all the various fixes, but got a lock maybe once or twice the first week I had the phone.

I didn't undo the fix settings in lbstest before the update, but then I've been hearing those fixes did nothing.

after the fix I wasn't getting a lock so i downloaded gps test, I see about 2 satellites on average. saw 4 for a brief moment. No lock after 10+ minutes.

Oh well I guess wireless networks will be good enough for the next two years before i upgrade again
