    Check out the solution from The Batman, which works perfectly. Same as xrmen, but with more detail.

    Don't know, but try The Batman's suggestion, which was not specific to the Evo Shift.

    Hi there. I've got the same problem but my HTC Desire is a GSM one so MSL reader doesn't work. Any idea?

    To be honest, GPS do work but ONLY if data is disconnected so Google Maps could never work ...
    Thank you.

    Probably a dumb question but where to find his solution? I'm on my phone so hard to find. I can't really understand xrmen.

    Hi. Yes I read the post and tried, but my GPS works perfectly: the only problem is that when I activate the GPS, the 3G DATA goes down and I can't have them activated simultaneously.

    Guys, another fix to try before flashing to a stock rom for the gps clr fix. I was having issues with my GPS today. First thing I check is my GPS drivers, as I want to make sure I've got the newest drivers for use with gingerbread. That was a go. However, I could not get a lock. This is what I did, hope it helps you. I did all three of these together to try and get a result, so some might not be needed, while others might, but my result was working gps.

    1. Settings>programs>dev settings>uncheck allow mock imitations (if it is checked)
    2. Settings>programs>manage applications. find maps, clear data.
    3. Settings>personal>my location. of course make sure gps is enabled, but also use wireless networks and assisted gps.
    4. Reboot. My result? Working GPS. Maybe this will help some of you out there.

    Edit /system/etc/gps.config file.
    Use GPS Status app to test.
