no GPS reception after opening the phone
I have my iPhone 4s a couple of years now.
It has been jailbroken as soon as i could with the iOS on it and I never had any problems with the phone.
A couple of months ago the battery became worse and worse and i replace it. Went off without a hitch and it worked fine with the new battery.
A few days ago I got into bad weather an a lot of raindrops splashed onto the phone. That never was a problem before so I thought nothing of it, but a few hours later when I tried calling someone I realized that the earpiece did not work anymore and I could not hear the person I called. When I switched to loudspeaker it worked, but I wanted to fix the earpiece.
So i opened up the phone and searched for water drops or signs of water and found none. I sucked air out of the front hole for the earpiece in order to get water out of it which I suspected inside, but at first that brought no change and the earpiece did not work.
I decided to power the phone off over night and let it dry (even though I did not find water or any signs of water inside the phone).
The next morning I switched on the phone and I was glad to see (or hear) that the earpiece worked.
So I was happy with myself and went to work, the phone did everything it should (good cell reception, wifi worked perfect and the 3G connection was fast).
What I realized later in the evening was that the GPS was extremely inacurate. (best case 65meters, worst case 1,6 kilometers). With that accuracy its my opinion that the GPS doesnt work at all and the Position is just determined by the cell towers in my proximity. So my GPS is completely broken now.
And now the bad part. There is no guide her on iFixit for any GPS problem. I cant fix my phone if I dont know which part to swap out or which connections to check or to clean.
Can someone help bring my GPS back? I use it daily and really need it. The phone is pretty useless to me without its GPS capabilities.
I need to know where the parts sit that are responsible for the GPS and I would appreciate any help.
I hope this little text is not too long, just wanted to have all relevant details in it.
Is this a good question?
