GPS chip Fix possible?
My Gps doesn't work at all. I've tried every possible software related fix including flashing a new stock firmware and Formatting. Could my antenna be damaged when I got it wet ?Anyways is there a way to just change the Gps chip or module ??? :(
Well , this phone, as advertised is supposed to be water resistant for 30 minutes under water 1.5 meters. And in the commercials and showcases , they showcase the phone in a little pile of water. Anyways I wanted to give it a try for 2 minutes under 30 cm of water and took some shots inside a pool. Everything seemed ok till it got moisture and fog like little droplets inside the two camera lenses after about an hour. And after 3 hours camera stopped functioning at all . So much for water resistancy :( I used the rice drying method after 2 days and it helped for the main camera to clear out and work again but front cam was still foggy. after a week or so it got cleared by itself and everything seems working flawlessly apart from the GPS.
I happened to try the Gps on a road with google maps and it didnt even got a signal. I used to app called GPS Test to see if it was a satellite fixing issue but I found out it looked like the GPS chip wasn't even turning on . It cannot find even one satellite on the radar screen. And funny thing is there are no error messages regarding GPS malfunction. Either my antenna got fried or the circuit got damaged I suppose :(
