How to fix slow GPS signal lock-on issue on rooted Android?

Thanks Nima for reminding me to post this ~ FasterFix. It is an Android application that helps you to set the GPS NTP time settings in your gps.conf file. Therefore, you don’t need to edit it by yourself with Root Explorer.


Head to NTP Pool website to get specific NTP setting for your country like mine in Malaysia ~ is the server name (custom setting). Note – Root and busybox are needed, modern HTC phones need to be S-OFF!

Download FasterFix at Google Play Store here.


  1. Thanks for sharing. but im getting force closed everything i pressed the “go” button. It showed me can’t get root message after open the application. 🙁

  2. it works for me but some how it screwed up the 3G mobile data. (i.e could not access internet via 3G or Wifi). So I had to reboot everytime I use this fix.

    anyone encounter same issue & manage to fix? pls share, thanks!

      • dunno some it wasn’t permanently (I’m still using Froyo RAM dual boot WM6.5), after reboot it revert back to 🙁

        anyway, pretty happy with android so far, so finally plan to use the NAND version soon 🙂

Androis 2.21 basebans kernel 206.32.15rafpigna build cmylxgo stock desire hd leo 1024 software # v1.1.12n. One works fine with Gps the other gets no signal… I have no idea what the difference is one I’ve has since last year and the screen cracked….the other I just got a month ago and they both have the yellow reset button. The gps is the only thing not working…any help would be much appreciated
