Get your MTK6589 GPS Working - Method B
#31
I got tired out with this EPO crap, and never got it to work. It just keep saying "EPO download error", tried all the guides nothing works... It's weired, because it used to work, and then out of the blue it doesn't...This sucks

So I flashed another ROM today, from needrom.com. Here GPS Works ok, but no EPO option for some reason Dunno, although it's for the Star S5 MTK6589 - but hey, GPS works...Thumbs Up
So maybe the problem lies in the ROM's...

Hi

My question is:

Having made these changes, does your phone keep a fix on your position when using Google Navigation in a car? Most of the fixes on this forum help to get an initial position lock. My problem is not that. The initial lock is fine. My iNew V3 loses the lock about 25 - 50 % of the time while driving, whereas other phones can easily maintain the position lock and thus keep Google Navigation contantly updated with the car's position. My iNew V3 can't the blue arrow in Google Navigation stands still for miinutes at a time, while I am driving.

Thanks

I get very good locked GPS in 15s for outdoor and 40s for indoor.

Your phone must be root. Use Root Explorer to edit file root/etc/gps.conf
You need to go to pool.ntp.org to find your own country active servers. For my example as for Australia, replace the content with the following:

NTP_SERVER=0.oceania.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.oceania.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=2.oceania.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.oceania.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=0.au.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.au.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=2.au.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.au.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=au.pool.ntp.org

XTRA_SERVER_1=http://gllto.glpals.com/4day/glo/v2/latest/lto2.dat
XTRA_SERVER_2=http://gllto.glpals.com/4day/glo/v2/latest/lto2.dat
XTRA_SERVER_3=http://gllto.glpals.com/4day/glo/v2/latest/lto2.dat

# DEBUG LEVELS: 0 - none, 1 - Error, 2 - Warning, 3 - Info
# 4 - Debug, 5 - Verbose
DEBUG_LEVEL =0

# Intermediate position report, 1=enable, 0=disable
INTERMEDIATE_POS=0

# Accuracy threshold for intermediate positions
# less accurate positions are ignored, 0 for passing all positions
ACCURACY_THRES=0

# Report supl ref location as position, 1=enable, 0=disable
REPORT_POSITION_USE_SUPL_REFLOC=1

# Wiper (wifi positioning), 1=enable, 0=disable
ENABLE_WIPER=1

################################
##### AGPS server settings #####
################################

# FOR SUPL SUPPORT, set the following
SUPL_HOST=supl.google.com
SUPL_PORT=7276
SUPL_NO_SECURE_PORT=3425
SUPL_SECURE_PORT=7275
SUPL_TLS_HOST=FQDN
SUPL_TLS_CERT=/etc/SuplRootCert

# FOR C2K PDE SUPPORT, set the following
C2K_HOST=c2k.pde.com
C2K_PORT=1234

CURRENT_CARRIER=common
DEFAULT_AGPS_ENABLE=TRUE
DEFAULT_SSL_ENABLE=FALSE

# TRUE for "User Plane", FALSE for "Control Plane"
DEFAULT_USER_PLANE=TRUE

Then save the file and set permission to rw-r-r--
Restart your phone then your done.

Hi Everyone.

Im Jose from Mexico City.

I have one zopo zp998, and there is no EPO. and have very bad GPS signal. almost is useless. i rooted my phone and and some line in the system file, and also tried almost all the app thats must fix the GPS, no one did the job well. (even i created one little antena to help to fix the sattelites). so my question is if there is any chance to get the GPS working, or i have to buy another external GPS or another branded phone with good GPS like the sony xperia.

Thanks everyone for your quick opinions and help

Yes, GPS in MTK phones is often not so great, but tricks like the one in the OP usually makes it work all right. If you for some reason can't do what the OP suggests, here is another (and slightly easier) way of getting your GPS sorted:

You Need:
1. Rooted Phone
2. FasterGPS (from Google Play)
3. MT GPS (from Google Play)
4. Mobileuncle Tools (from Google Play)

How to:
1. Run "FasterGPS", select your continent and country; exit app
2. Run "MT GPS" and let it do it's thing; exit app
3. Restart phone
4. Run Mobileuncle
5. Select: Engineer Mode > Engineer Mode (MTK) > Location > YGPS > Information
6. Tap: "hot", "full" and "AGPS restart" (in this order; wait some 30 seconds between each tap)
7. Exit Mobileuncle

Your phone should now get a fix in 10-20 seconds.

Cheers,
Oioioi

I created an app that will download the EPO files from a faster, non-ftp mediatek location as well as help you by giving you a one-click fix option.

So just in case it is of use to any of you:
EPO Tools Free
