    Finding Droid When GPS Is Disabled?

    How can I find my droid when my gps is disabled. Yea I know about Where's My Droid and how it can no longer enable gps. Just wondering with our rooted phones if some type of work around was found.

    thanks

    WaveSecure and MobileDefense can both be installed as system apps and can enable GPS automatically like you describe. I use WaveSecure and am pretty happy with it.
    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    IIRC you can use Tasker as well.
