    Storm and Curve GPS Fix

    i take no responsibility for anything that happens to your phone.



    its a collabo from tobeychris's gps settings for the HTC diamond and rolandj's "how to get the MSL code"

    first off you will need:

    hexworkshop
    uniCDMA
    BB DM
    QPST

    ok first we need to get the MSL code
    credit to rolandj

    1. install uniCDMA
    2. install Hexworkshop

    1. Install your blackberry desktop manager. (Im using version 4.7 and it hasnt given me any problems.) Plug In blackberry.

    2. Run desktop manager

    3. Minimize DM and run uniCDMA

    4. Select "Qualcomm" under the mode drop menu

    5. Click setup and change the port to com4

    6. Click Read all and it should fill in the boxes on the left with your blackberry information

    8. Click memory and change the starting address to 0x17c455be and length to 524288. Click read and save to file.

    9. Now open Hexworkshop and open the file you just created.

    10. In the right box you will see a 6 digit number. That is your MSL password.

    13. Press Menu then close and it will reset your phone and you are good to go. Im not totally sure if your MSL code will be in the same area as mine so maybe rolandj (crackberry) might be able to help with the address adjustment

    this is what the msl number should look like





    now for the QPST part
    credit goes to tobeychris

    4. Install QPST if you haven't already.
    5. Run the Service Programming program under the QPST start menu.
    6. Double click on the little globe at the bottom right of your screen.
    7. Click on Add New Port, and add COM# - surf*** (########)
    8. Close the QPST Configuration window, and go back to the QPST Service Programming window.
    9. The ######## from step 7, which is the same number in the ESN column, is your ESN! (in hex format). If you have your SPC already, keep going. Otherwise, scroll down and read the SPC section.
    10. Click on your phone, and then click OK.
    11. Your phone should now be automatically detected. If not select it to match the picture below, then click OK.


    12. Click on Read From Phone and then enter your SPC and click OK.

    13. Goto the gpsOne tab (you'll have to scroll to the right) and make your screen identical to this one, choosing the settings for your proper carrier below:



    Telus:
    PDE IP Address = 216.198.139.92
    PDE Port Number = 8889
    PDE Transport = IP
    Position Calculation = Mobile



    i have done this to my phone and the lock is under a second every time and about 3 seconds after power off and on

    what exactly is this fixing? My GPS works fine (except for google maps) I tested it on another 3rd party app (GPSed) and it works fine.

    Awesome!

    Thank you for a definitive answer... I wasn't sure where to go from installing QPST, as I have never used it before.

    Just wondering if there are others out there who have used QPST and uniCDMA as a fix and what kind of results people have obtained through a long term period. As I mentioned in a previous post, my Storm's GPS is great 85% of the time, but there's moments where it gets stuck searching for satellites. I haven't applied this fix yet, but if there's another failure to accquire a sat fix, I may give this a whirl.

    your post inspired me and made me remember when i had to do the same thing with my diamond when i had it.

    when i looked at the gpsOne settings before i changed it, the ip said 1.0.0.0 and the rest of the stuff was blank so that lead me to believe that there was no chance in hell the gps was ever gonna work on my phone.

    I hope RIM see this. Could this be the problem on the curve ?

    Using UniCDMA read MSL/SPC from the following:
    Blackberry Pearl Address: 0x106c9e79 Length: 1703936
    Blackberry 8703e Address: 0x10050000 Length: 1703936 (updated address)
    Blackberry 8830 WE Address: 0x10057700 Length: 524288
    Blackberry 8130 Address: 0x10129990 Length: 25000
    Blackberry 8800 Address: 0x10630000 Length: 1703936

    This is from my 8130



    So the settings are the same except for the Position Calculation my BB is blank.

    I'll take wild guess and say that they should be the same for all BB's

    0x106c9e79 Length: 1703936 is the correct address for the 8130

    If your GPS works no.
    If it does not work then yes.

    Damn I wish this I had all this information when I had my curve. I probably would've stuck with it had I known there was a real fix for it.
