EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
Menu -> Info
Click "Update cache now"
Cache is updated. Cache refreshed date changes to current time, acquiring gps
lock is fast(er).
Cache is not refreshed. Achieving GPS lock is very difficult.
At some point Nokia changed the supl.nokia.com to a pool of servers, based on
geodns. Some of the servers offered work with supld/supllistenerd, others do
For me, supl.nokia.com (which the agps connects to) resolves to 184.108.40.206,
which does not work (as described above).
Example of a working server is 220.127.116.11.
It is unclear whether this is a bug of agps, or whether it's a server bug. In
any case, it'd be nice if things didn't suddenly stop working :-)
I have no idea who maintained and if anybody still maintains agps-ui
Quim, any idea?
agps-ui for N810 is currently not maintained, sorry.
Who maintains the servers then? Would it be possible to ensure that all servers
in the pool support supld/supllistenerd?
Is there a workaround so those of us affected can switch to a server that
*** This bug has been confirmed by popular vote. ***
Found a workaround myself. Gconf to the rescue :) The address supl.nokia.com is
stored at two locations in the gconf tree:
$ gconftool --get /system/osso/supl/agps_srv_address
$ gconftool --get /system/osso/supl/slp_address
Can be changed to a working server:
$ gconftool --type string --set /system/osso/supl/agps_srv_address
$ gconftool --type string --set /system/osso/supl/slp_address "18.104.22.168"
Now agps-ui works as expected.
