First I'd like to say thanks for any help the community can provide. Secondly, I'm not yet entirely comfortable flashing ROMs and such however I have done so, successfully so far. Anyway, I may ask a stupid question along the way so please bear with me.

After the botched Verizon / HTC upgrade last month my phone started a downward spiral until I realized I was missing calls and voicemails. Out of frustration I decided to bite the bullet and root a little more than a week following the install of the pulled update.

I rooted using Revolutionary and all was working flawlessly until last week. My phone spontaneously rebooted and froze within a minute on the the home screen then eventually rebooted. It did this a second time and then on the third reboot it hit the screen just fine without freezing.

As far as I could tell everything was OK and I chalked it up to "one of those things" however Monday morning I discovered that the GPS was no longer working. I have tried, as time has allowed, to remedy the issue but to no avail. As of this afternoon I re-flashed both the CDMA and LTE radios (2.11.605.3) but as you see by my post here, that didn't work.

Does anyone have anything to suggest? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Heck if I know and that's the frustrating part. I was of the impression that Revolutionary downloaded direct to the phone as part of the process but I never saw a PG05IMG.zip file. I can't seem to re-apply using the same method as the installer chokes after seeing that I already have s-off.

I know that doesn't help a lot but that's all I have. Prior to applying Rev. I was on the failed Verizon OTA GB 2.11.605.5. Is there anything else I can provide that might be helpful?

Did you ONLY root or did you root AND install a new ROM? If you installed a new ROM, then you would have used Recovery and browsed for a .zip file and installed it.

No, I didn't install a new ROM when I rooted but I thought maybe that's what was happening with the Rev process. Whatever it does happens via a command window in Windows with minimal visibility as to what is really happening.

Anyway, I guess that's the answer then. Since I didn't install a new ROM then I'd be on Verizon's next to last OTA for GB.

Any ROM you particularly recommend? In the meantime, I'll start looking around. I've got a good (minus the GSP) backup to restore to if need be.

Thanks for hangin' in there with me.

OK, so I never found a "true" fix however I've since discovered that flashing a new ROM, anything other than what I already had, seems to fix the GPS problem nicely. Anyway, thanks to all that tried to help.

FWIW, I've tried a few ROMs and have, for now, landed on Liquid Smooth 3.1 and liking it quite a bit. Tried MIUI but I have so many apps I exceeded the number of screens.
I could get around it using a different launcher but doing that just seems wrong for that clean interface.

Yeah, the GPS works like a charm. I didn't have to do a thing to get it to work other than flash the ROM in the first place - "right out of the box" it just worked.
Glad to hear it worked out for you. I as well am running 3.1 and love it. I love all liquids work. He's great. Even if you want a sense rom you should try gingersense. Also excellent. If you have any issues you could pm me and ill try to help out.
