HD2 Finally Gets AGPS Support on Gingerbread

The best part about ports in our wonderful devices comes about when stuff becomes functional. At this point, you can normally start considering the port to be a “daily” as you can use most things that you are used to from either more stable (but older) roms, or even from stock. It is very hard to argue with this, but the HD2 is the device that, by far, has undergone the most face lifts when it comes to trying to find a new OS that suits it. Most of these ports are currently either fully functional or in the correct path for getting there. Android’s latest “released” incarnation also known as Gingerbread is an almost fully functional port on this device with only a few things missing, one of them being AGPS. At least that was the case until XDA Recognized Developer tytung started tinkering with this. After several months of hard work and cooperation with other developers, the developer finally got AGPS to work. As trying to get the HD2 gps libs to work was not yielding good results, the dev decided to try and use gps libs from other devices, finishing with the ones from the HTC Magic. The libs were hex edited for them to work on the HD2 and thanks to a tip from XDA member qwerty_7564, the libs which were crashing upon trying to get a fix, seem to be fully working.

If you still have this wonderful device and would like to get your AGPS going, make sure that you read all the instructions just in case. Please leave some feedback for the developer.

This implementation is based on GPS Library in HTC-HD2 Android Libraries. (Thanks to dan1j3l.)
You can find my modified source code and AGPS development info in the second post.
