    check your iPhone; if you are on 5.14 or 5.15 baseband with 5.08 bootrom you can downgrade to 5.13, which is unlocked. download fuzzyboard from Cydia and It will tell you if you are able to downgrade and f you can you will be able to do it right there on your device.

    It's hard to say. I have seen more success than failure, but there were quite a handful with GPS loss

    Thanks for the input Annie, guess it's a lottery.

    Did you notice any correlation between which phones still had GPS afterwards and which ones didn't?

    I don't think even the devs have figured that one out yet. Like you said, it's a lottery basically. Take your chances or don't....

    I'm guessing it throws the real gps off on all of them. It probably still works for some because of cell and wifi triangulation.

    that's my thought as well. The only reason the iPad BB works is because the BB processors are the same in the devices. However the GPS is entirely different, no surprise it doesn't work.

    Mine works but is 500 meters off from my actual location on average. It's closer sometimes but doesn't do turn by turn directions at all. I pretty much use maps to just get a map of the area I am in and figure it out.

    The chances of losing GPS are 100 percent. Those that claim to have it working successfully when investigated further are invariably using triangulation on Wifi or cell Towers.
