    No idea but if it's available it;s worth a shot. With that said you need to consider NOT upgrading the OS if something isn't working correctly as it could get worse, not better.

    My G2 has NEVER been very good with GPS. It's the biggest reason I don't carry it very much. I've tried a variety of apps and the Malladus ROM (on it now) and it still is slow to lock and when it does it only locks on to about half of what my S4 and X do. The weird thing is that I've played with 2 other G2's and they lock just fine. I'm going to return mine to stock and hopefully an update comes down the pipe that helps it out some.

    This seemed to be a hardware issue for me. After literally my 7th G2 it is finally good. I've had tons of Motorola's and Samsung's and not experienced the lock issue.
