    Came from BB v1.1 and am wanting to go back. Don't like that the auto update in Market got yanked.

    Back to GPS issue-

    I wiped 3 x's(as always) and no new kernel installed.

    Can't access GPS. It's turned on, but ANY app(including maps) says "waiting for location". Indefinitely.

    What the crap happened? This is (obviously) a big one for me :)

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Have you tried any ROMs beside BB?

    not in MONTHS. It has got to be something with this new version. I went back to a nandroid backup of v1.1 and worked right as rain.

    Another attempt, whilst trying a few different kernels- no dice, still.

    Try going into your system settings into the location&security section and making sure the 'Use GPS satellites' option is checked.

    I had a similar issue earlier.
