Discuss [SOLVED for firmware 2.2] GPS Banned in Egypt at the iPhone 3G - Hackint0sh.org; Gps working without patching on the new iphone 3.0 fw (confirmed) and by the way ...
Gps working without patching on the new iphone 3.0 fw (confirmed) and by the way the arabic keyborad also is available.
thanks alot for all people how worked on the previous firmware to enable the gps modem.
Great to hearing that you guys in Egypt can enjoy GPS now without hacking. I had noticed that the respective law changed in your country and seems that Apple got it ;-)

Fix GPS iPhone Claro Paraguay
Hey Guys. I think this affects users from CLARO in Paraguay as well. My iphone GPS stopped working when I upgraded from 2.1 to 2.2. I tried everything. Disabling 3G, deleting settings, restoring without jailbreaking, with jailbreaking. I then upgraded 2.2.1 and the GPS still did not work. I thought that it was definitely a hardware problem. But then I saw this thread which I know is only for Egyptians iPhones. But I decided to give it a try anyway. I replaced the locationd file with the patched one. Restarted and voila! The GPS was working again!. Super happy. I am now downloading os 3.0 and will upgrade it and see if the GPS keeps working after that.
This is really weird as I know users from CLARO in Paraguay and their GPS work perfectly. But somehow mine got blocked. If someone has a clue how this might have happened please let me know. I posted this so other people googling for the same GPS problem with CLARO might find it. Thanks a lot my egyptians friends your work helped someone here in Paraguay as well.

I upgraded to firmware 3.0 last night and I could not make the GPS work again. It now shows the blue ball but with a big circle around many blocks. I tried it outside with a clear sky. Obviously from cell phone towers. One thing to note. Right after I upgraded to OS 3.0 it asked me to download new carrier bundle settings for Claro Paraguay. I downloaded and updated the carrier settings before trying if the GPS worked on firmware 3.0
Can someone please post a working locationd file for firmware 3.0 for testing purposes? I am almost sure that this will fix it as it worked with firmware 2.2.1 after having my gps not working for months. Please help!. Thanks a lot
In the meantime I will try restoring firmware 3.0 from scratch.
It did not work after restoring 3.0. I am sure that the locationd file is the problem as I was able to fix and get a working GPS when using the egyptian patched locationd file under firmware 2.2.1. Can someone please patch or help me patch the locationd file on firmware 3.0?? Please help guys!! Thanks a lot
Need the pstch for v 3 too.GPS fail after upgarding.
work or no work gps at iPhone 3g os 3.0 in Egypt?
Its my first post here. I live in Egypt the last years but I am Greek.
I wait a new iPhone 3g unlocked from my country the next days.
From mobinil and Vodafone eg, I can't have serius informations about my question.
I want to know if I must use for first time my iphone with a greek sim card or with my mobinil card.
I am afraid that if I use mobinil maybe i_tunes block the gps of my device.
I can't understand what they make here?
I know very well that now egyptian Govermant allow gps and all symbians and windows mobiles work weel with gps.
I have also an HTC HD PPC and I use gps with real navigator programs (mireo black and iGO8 3x).
What is the reality in Egypt after the new OS 3.0 update. Work or don' t work gps at the iphone?
If no what is the reason from the moment Efyptian Govermatt allow gps?
I try to learn the reason why until now mobinil and Vodafone keep banned the gps.
Like we know Egyptian Govermant allow gps for mobiles.
All mobiles with gps they make navigation 2 months now. NOKIA, HTC.
Vodafone sell HTC Diamond2 with gift the Mireo Black Navigator.
Only iPhone continue banned.
So I made a call at customers service, I told them all these and because I am not Egyptian they tried to give me an answer.
They told me that gps will be allow when start to sell the new iPhone 3gs.
I asked why? at all the world it is ok after OS 3.0 and i-Tunes sell Navigon program. They had not answer.
But every one can understand they do this because they try to have more sells at the new Iphone.
I can't understand this logic.
So I didn't buy iphone from Egypt. I order it from my country and will be unlocked because in my country the low don't accept locked devices.
I will have gps and I will can use internet like I want without stupid data plan.
You know mobinil data plan cost 125EGP and give you only 100MB and 500 free minutes.
I don't need the free minutes, I need more MB so as to have my mails at any where.
So I will continue with my business acount, whitch it is free from my company and I will use the 5MB/day they give with 1 EGP for web or wap browsing. It's meaning I will have 5X30days=150MB per month for 30EGP.
I need just my mail and updates for weather. I have wifi at my office and my home. Also all cafe they have internet.
I can do it because my iphone it is unlocked so it will take the APN automatic like made before my HTC HD.
I think Egypt it isn't ready for the new generation of mobiles. Of course the cost talk/minute it is chipper than every other cauntry but they don't want to give real good data plan like in america or europe.
Can anyone help us with the blocked GPS on our 3.0 iphones??? Please help unlock the GPS in firmware 3.0 hacking locationd. I would be willing to make a small contribution or donation for an unlock and I guess a lot of people with blocked GPS will want to contribute as well.
