Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

I have some problem.

The solution is change in file /etc/gps.conf line SUPL_HOST=supl.sonyericsson.com with SUPL_HOST=supl.google.com.
You need root for this.

@Mezozoy

You saved my phone.

Your work is brilliant.

 

@fabiofabio

I just changed the SUPL_HOST line then reboot and left the SUPL_PORT line alone.

Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

Hi Mezozoy,

 

That was terrific, my Sony XPeria ION usefulness reduced a lot after the GPS started to crash the phone. Your solution gave back the original productivity to my phone.

 

Kudos to you!!

 

But I had still few issues in getting my GPS to lock and therefore installed the Faster GPS app and that did the trick for me.

 

Thanks again.

Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

Any other solution,people? 
I've actually gone crazy over the past few weeks,thinking something was wrong with just my phone, but seeing so many people face the same problem gives me a lot of hope Grinning Face 
i've already done factory reset(more than once), used PC Companion to repair the phone, hard reset too, but nothing has worked.

Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

Hi Gurleen,

 

Yes, many people have this problem, this got to do with a faulty web services from Sony.

 

Mezozoy found this problem and also has provided us with a solution.

 

For this you need to root your mobile. (You can google, for steps to root your phone). After rooting you can apply the changes recommended by Mezozoy. I have quoted below Mezozoy's post.

 

"The solution is change in file /etc/gps.conf line SUPL_HOST=supl.sonyericsson.com with SUPL_HOST=supl.google.com."

Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

I have the same problem,

but I think is not correct that I must boot my phone, when the problem is due to a sony error.

they must solve the problem, not me hacking my phone...

I paid a sony phone also to have a good service.
