      ...also be civilized and harmonious.
    I recently installed AreaRom 3.5 from stock Froyo. Everything functions but have noticed that the GPS is 180 degrees out of sync. It did sync correctly before upgrade to 3.5.

    I have tried the figure 8 and flipping the phone through all three axis as suggested for calibration. This does calibrate and zeros in direction better but remains 180 degrees off.

    If I hold the phone backwards it will register correct direction or if forward it will tell me to go backwards ???

    Is there a fix for this?

    try this build.prop file that I modded to make GPS work on cyogenmod7 for this device.

    be sure you make a backup first before replacing your build.prop file

    also keep an original copy by renaming your build.prop to something like "_bk_build.prop" bk for backup this will make the system not look at it as the build.prop file.

    This fix was somewhat hit and miss and I would have it work on fresh ROM installs and sometimes not and need to totally re-flash and then do it again.

    The build.prop file is in the root directory in the system folder.
