you can try this patch based on http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-nexus/development/patch-agps-patch-3-1-2-2-to-rapid-gps-t1563226



ps: the "NTP_SERVER " is set to europe, if you want to change it ,first install the patch then use root explorer and edit the line for your continent by "add" or " "removing" "#" from the line
here is an example ...


# Europe =========================================
NTP_SERVER=europe.pool.ntp.org


# United States of America =======================
# NTP_SERVER=us.pool.ntp.org

# Asia ===========================================
# NTP_SERVER=asia.pool.ntp.org

# China ==========================================
# NTP_SERVER=china.pool.ntp.org

# Africa =========================================
# NTP_SERVER=africa.pool.ntp.org

# Russia =========================================
# NTP_SERVER=russia.pool.ntp.org

# North America ==================================
# NTP_SERVER=north-america.pool.ntp.org

# South America ==================================
# NTP_SERVER=south-america.pool.ntp.org

Here in Indonesia. I feel the gps no quite fast.
Hmm.. I need some suggestion, when i'm running Path application why my network data couldn't find my position? But other phone with same carrier immedietly found the position.
What could be wrong with my MI2s??

My Mi2S has a pretty good GPS sensor, the basic GPS antenna (with A-GPS and other network based localization systems DISABLED) usually takes less than a minute for the first cold fix and the accuracy is good. Usually it can get the fix also indoor.
My previous phones (two high-end samsung) took up to 15 minutes or even more to obtain the first fix without A-GPS and they never worked indoor.
With A-GPS enabled, it's a matter of a few seconds to get the first fix if you are in a place with a stable network signal.

With an internet connection active, also your old PC without a GPS antenna can be localized in 1 second with a good accuracy (depending on your urban area). Try eg. to open with your browser an html5 geolocation demo ;)

Tomorow I try. Rest Chinese phones wich I have, don't find satelits when I'm in house.
GPS sensor of Mi2S is great and sometimes works also indoor. You should try it without A-GPS in offline mode. With home's wifi network with internet access, its a matter of milliseconds to obtain your approximative position from your IP number/table assigned by your provider, then with some other milliseconds your position is refined by querying your data packets statistics (like a traceroute), at this point once the phone has a position (usually with an accuracy of 150/200m) it knows where are all the satellites over your head and can use the GPS antenna to refine again the correct position. By using the WiFi of your home network the first cold fix is not performed by the Mi2S GPS sensor, that's why it happened instantly ;).
