    I managed to install the 5.0.0.230 leak on my 8230. GPS does not work (does not find satellites) in Google Maps, BlackBerry Maps, nor GPS Logger. On previous OS, 4.6.1.309, GPS did not work in Google maps, but worked just fine in BlackBerry Maps. Anybody have any solutions, or information??? I would really like to be able to find My Location, at least in BlackBerry Maps.

    Yeah, I already know that answer. I was just wondering of anyone using .230 was successful with the GPS. You have a good point, but I like to play on the edge.

    I had the .230 leak installed on my 8230 and put lyricidal's .238 hybrid I downloaded from BBHybrids over the top of it. This .230/.238 setup I've had for 3 months has worked great including the GPS. Unsure why your GPS isn't working. Had a quick question on the .348 part of your OS I saw on your ID info, where did you find that and any benefits to adding that to .230/.238 setup. Thanks.

    The .348 is part of the hybrid I am using. It's also got some .344 files. Got it from the V.I.P. section of bbhybrids.It's been there for quite a while. Maybe you could convince them to move it to the public section. I have no idea what the .344 and .348 files add, as I have not used the straight .238 version.

    GPS does not work at all. BB Maps goes into a perpetual "searching for satellites". Never finds any. The upload/download "data" arrows in the upper right corner of the screen never appear. I guess I'll wipe and reinstall and see if it works, now that I know the GPS works for you. I doubt that the .344 and .348 files could be affecting it, but who knows?

    Thanks for your response. That is what I was hoping to hear! I'll report back after reinstalling the OS.

    OK, so I wiped the phone; reloaded 4.6.1.309. GPS works fine on BB Maps, but nothing else.

    Loaded 5.0.0.230 and restored data & apps. NO GPS at all.

    Wiped & reloaded 4.6.1.309. GPS works on BB Maps & nothing else.

    Wiped & loaded 5.0.0.230_.344_.348 hybrid. NO GPS.

    Wiped & reloaded 4.6.1.309. Installed all my apps & address book, etc. Fine tuned all my phone settings. GPS works on BB Maps & nothing else. At least it works on BB Maps. I guess I'll stick with this until a higher build of 5.0 is released or leaked.

    May the leak gods be generous to us poor mortals!
