How did you manage to get the GPS working, at this stage I don't care about 3G&GPRS data this mostly APN problem and could be tackled latter.
I have no turbosim, I remove VF SIM card and jailbreak the iphone using iclarified tutorial with no luck, the GPS still not working, can't get satellite fix.
How did you get the GPS to work? Can you give steps?
is GPS chip removed or disabled???
i have the iphone 3G from vodafone also and jailbroken but with the sim card inserted while jailbreaking the GPS still not working any help will be apprechiated, i asked appleline in mohandesin and they said that the GPS chip is removed from the iphone.
J to the T. Shaken, not Stirred
The GPS chip is in every iPhone 3G, it is simply disabled in countries where consumer GPS is illegal.

There is a link to a patched locationd file for firmware 2.2. this will enable GPS in all countries where GPS is not allowed by the government. Only for factroy unlocked iPhone and those with a legit contract (from Egypt or other countries)

---------- iPhone 4 factory unlocked, iOS 4.3.1, jailbroken
iPad Wi-Fi + 3G (1G), iOS 4.3.1, jailbroken
LocationD patched but still not working
i am sure it is working for many of the iphone3G owners for now,
thanks go's to all hard work from volkspost and mellervin you really did great work i really did not expected that there is someone who care about doing this for egyptian iphone3G owners and all the GPS banned countries i guess there is tow or three!!!!
and hoped for the unlock to do the job for us, but here are good people like you, you really awesome
but unfortunately it is not working for me,
what i have here is:
legal iphone 3G 2.2 Vodafone sim activated during Jailbreaking and GPS patched.
i will try to restore again the FW2.2 and jailbreak the phone then activate and patch,
if i missed anything please advice.
3dwizard, how did you upload the modded locationd to your phone? Some methods (like WinSCP) screw up the permission of the file (it happened to me). The simplest solution is to download an explorer on ur iPhone (I had Mobile Finder) from Cydia. Then browse to /usr/libexec/ then check the permissions of locationd to make sure it has execute permissions for all users.
i used diskaid2.01
all location service is not running including cellular towers method
