    if it is a verizon 8830 it will only expose cellids. in other words googlemaps is the only way to get a location. you should find a blackberry forum. this is a wm area. im not familiar with other carriers versions of the 8830 but it does have a gps.

    Saga`s Gps Files

    Hey Guys , i don`t if this thread already has been terminated or you guys are still working on the hack for q9c but i got my hand on a Samsung Saga from verizon with updated open gps and extracted some files off of it . i`m still not giving up on this and am in the process of replacing some of the files in the verizon`s Q9c with these open gps files . here are the files if somebody else would like to look at it .

    Please let us know how they worked out for you. I have Q9M that I've been trying to unlock the GPS for, for awhile. Unfortunately, I have been unsuccessful up to this point, and I hope they might work for me.

    Oh the memories. This thread brought me to EQ. My new Eris is charging now. I can keep this USCC Q9c activated for a day or two if there are any break throughs but have to port my number soon.

    Guys I don`t know if this would be of any help to anyone here but The Easiest Way i Found for extracting the rom files is a program called ROM EXTRACTOR .It works perfectly on my both SAGA and Q9C . All you have to do is type in the path for The ROM file and Full path for your output file . so no ROM DUMPING to get your hands on those DLL files . i`m posting the program . just copy it off anywhere to you phone start it and type in the full path for both input and output file and within seconds you`ll have the copy of it . Also Vieweing DLL files is easily done by a program named PE EXPLORER . it does a perfect job . Cheers

    I have never needed to post in this or any other cell phone forum before. Google is my friend and I don't like to waste other's time. I have learned tons and friends bring me projects to tackle for them. Google is a powerful friend.
    That said I just hate to see this thing die. Verizon users are moving on, that makes sense. I use cricket and for the likes of me yesterdays news is pretty much all I can afford. I'll keep playing with it for some time now. Still haven't taped the full potential of my q9c. I just wonder how much harder it would be to get some more functionality out of Sprint's roms instead of patching up verizon roms. How hard would this approach be? Isn't possible to get a sprint rom to work with verizon/cricket with only the loss of mms. I can live with that, but can we put it back in with less effort than sorting out all of the GPS driver issues and the like in verizon roms? My experience is limited but I usually figure it out in the end. I have read most of this thread. I really don't want to waste space here.
