      Hi.
      I've installed Phoenix ROM. And than done that stuff right away...
      When I change csc to BTU it makes the phone reboot... Is it normal?
      But I think it doesn´t changes the settings... I mean, after the I change it btu and the phone reboots, I have to set every thing again like country, my name and so on... If I go to csg changer again it says on the top XME... :(
      What do you recommend me to do?

      If you want GPS to work on 4.4.2 then this is the only way it worked for me I did a clean install of phoenix chanced with the build in phoenix csc app to btu then the phone will make a factory reset so you lose the things in internal memory after that gps will work on every 4.4.2 rom so it's up to you my friend
    • Re: Guide to solve GPS problems after install a 4.4.4 ROM

      By the way, does this issue occurs when I install every 4.4.4 Rom?
      Because I've had some installed and I think it didn't happen.
      With Dan GE Rom for example GPS was working ok.
    • Re: Guide to solve GPS problems after install a 4.4.4 ROM

      The gps problem for me has return and I don't know why.
      Installed Phoeix ROM, change csc to BTU.
      No I go to Samsung Info and I get this:

      CSC INFO:
      Original CSC Code:
      XME

      Firmware CSC Code:
      XME

      Active CSC Code:
      BTU/XME

      CSC Country:
      Malasya

      CSC Country ISO:
      MY

      Product Code:
      GT-I9505ZKABTU

      Is this ok? Because gps isn't locking...
      WHat should I have in those settings?

      (EDIT: I didn´t install any other 4.4.4 TW ROms. Only CM ROM)

      What i did was within phoenix settings you can change csc with csc changer app for example to btu then the phone does a factory reset and your csc has changed

      @hnegrao
      As i see BTU is already active, can you try to change to another CSC ? Do you have XME in the choice ? I read somwhere that it worked when changing to the own CSC. It's worth a try.

      What doyou mean, "...BTU is already active" ?
      What options should I expect in order to my GPS to work.

      I think it's working now... but it changed values to Slovakia... I don't don't why.
      Perhaps because I reinstalled Echo ROM...

      If it works that's great.
      Well how should i explain , i haven't fully understood that myself.
      But there seems to be a active CSC, maybe responsible for the CSC features, and there is a Phone CSC.
      Whe i bought my Phone i had DBT Phone, in Samsung Phone Info it shows Original CSC. This value never changed from DBT,
      regardless what CSC i used.

    • Hi I don't want to interface in some way but my fix for GPS problem was that;


      First, go back to stock 4.4.2 ROM and do that:

      On you dialer type in this USSD cod *#0011# (wait for a few second)
      Press menu key > press back
      Press menu key > press key input > Q
      Press menu key > press key input > 0000
      Wait for a few seconds (15s) and the screen options will change
      Press UE SETTINGS & INFO
      Press SETTINGS
      Press SYSTEM
      Press NV REBUILD
      Press ALL
      REBOOT PHONE

      Now flash stock Lollipop ROM (or what ever rom you want). GPS will be fix.

      PS. if it's not OK to post here, sorry and my post can be erase !
      It's not my credit ! found it some were and tested successfully !
