Normally, cooked Android ROM for HTC HD2 does not have your location data in gps.conf (unless you live in the same place as the ROM chef). It was set to his region. Therefore, it is hard for you to get a fast GPS signal lock on at your place…
How to fix slow GPS signal lock-on issue on Android HTC HD2?
Open gps.conf file (located at /system/etc) with Root Explorer. Get your nearest NTP server name from NTP Pool website. Like my case in Malaysia, my.pool.ntp.org is the server name. So I just replace the existing one (pt.pool.ntp.org) in gps.conf with my.pool.ntp.org. Then reboot my phone. That’s all.
I tested with Google Maps and PAPAGO!. GPS signal lock on speed is far better than before…
Awesome tip! Thanks, and keep up the good work!
Whats a root explorer?
Root Explorer is the ultimate file manager for root users. Access the whole of android’s file system (including the elusive data folder!).
Dude how do u edit?..im using root explorer v2.5
and i can just only open the file as text but how to actually edit the text?
Hold on the file until option window pop up. Then select ‘Open in Text Editor’ to edit.
marvelous!!!!..gud tips…as mine default pool is us.pool.ntp.org, 1st time trying to lock signal take about 4-5 minutes(outside), then after change to my.pool.ntp.org, the signal can lock on just 30 sec…imagine that..furthermore i’ll test it inside the building near open window..
I tried and it said it’s a “read-only file”?

You hold down the file, scroll to the bottom and click, open text editor or something.
I just tried this after my gps not working at all, and my gps is still not working……….
