    Lightbulb [MOD] GPS Fix by Country and Continent

    GPS Fix by Country and Continent (Requires Root)

    These files are gps.conf files with servers for many areas. If you are having problems with GPS locks or slow locks, please try this fix. Find your country from the list of files. If your country is not listed, then select what continent you are on. Please backup your current gps.conf file. It is located in the /system/etc directory. To install the new gps.conf file, do the following:
    1. Reboot into ClockWorkMod recovery.
    2. Copy the zip file to your sd card (DO NOT UNZIP THE FILE).
    3. Select INSTALL ZIP FROM SD CARD.
    4. Select EXTERNAL.
    5. Select YES.
    Once you have this loaded, reboot your system. The first lock may take a while as the GPS learns the new servers. Once it has done this, your locks should be very quick and solid.

    Guess I should have waited a little while longer. No, since I was adding the USA settings to my ROM, I thought I would go ahead and make zip files for the rest of the world since it seems people from all over are loading the ROM. The USA settings wouldn't be to good for the other side of the world.
