    Not sure if this is the right place to put it, but in anycase:

    i just installed the new BuglessBeast rom, and i got my contacts back and my apps etc, have all my screens set up the way i want them. and well gps for google maps and my weatherbug will not work, it cannot find me even if i manual turn on gps. is this a known issue that can't be fixed or is there something i can do, i use google maps alot and it makes it faster if it can just locate me... any and all help would be greatly appreciated, the people on the forums here have been extremely helpful in the past :)

    Bugless Beast 2.1 or 0.7.5?
    I've tried them both and had working GPS with both, but on 2.1 I did have to download and install GoogleMaps again from the market. You might try reading the corresponding thread here:

    to see if anyone else is having your same issue.

    What version is "the new"? If it is the one based on Android 2.1, that has a number of bugs, including issues with the GPS. If it is the normal Bugless Beast, GPS should be working fine - I am running 0.7.4 with no problems.

    Not a lot of difference between 0.7.4 and 0.7.5, and GPS should be working in 0.7.5, have you tried rebooting or reinstalling?
