    First manual is not working. After download m44 toolbox there is no engeneermode for mtk. Only android. If you try to click in m44 in menupower gps search it needs rooted phone. I payed 3 usd for root byt ejhle doprdel is not rooted! So do something please its like chinees is very bad and shit goods and products

    Why it cant work? GPS fucked up! Put here some e a s y way not for programmers! I want to use my phone not debuge or programm it! GPS is so simple and is not working! Ist really disaster! even my old nokia for 2 USD can navigate!

  3. Eamonn

    None of these fixes, will let you use the phone as a SatNav, they merely give you a quick intial fix, once you start driving it has to try find the position constantly, which the phones just don’t do well enough to use as a SatNav.

    Fixes are only a waste of time.

    GPS WON’T WORK even if u do whatever fix the say, i think is a gps cheap antena, this is one downside of the mtk phones, other than that, they are great.

    I did everythink like in suggestions. Tried methos 1 – satellites never became green. Than downloaded and ovewrited gps.conf – gpas satellites in m44 – never became green. What should I do? As I see only AGPS is working in my phone (HTC ONE M7 clone).

  7. Didel

    When i use the engineer mode (MTK), and click “location based Service” and then enable GPS ON, then view i see satellites, which become green after few seconds, but when i leave “location based service” and enter agian, GPS is again OFF, but i expected to be ON.
    This can not work, correct??

        Ciao,
        ha forse risolto il problema che il gps si attiva veramente solo in engineer mode GPS(ON) ? io ho un tel con mtk 6589 da oggi e non riesco a risolvere. anche se attivato da menu non aggancia alcun satellite
        grazie andrea

    I do All but satellites never became green.NEVER

    1. rahul

      did you manage to get your gps going ? i too have the same problem – i see ZERO signal, even though all the satellites are showing (in red) – i’m not even gettiing a tiny bit of signal on any satellite. if yours is working, what did you do to fix this ?

    Do you know how to activate service mode (or engineer mode) at the Samsung GTN-7102 (Dual SIM Galaxy note 2) it does not work dialing in the phone pad the code *#*#197328640#*#*, not even downloading from play store the program “Samsung Service” it outcomes errors for the codes *#0011#, *#2263# y *#*#197328640#*#*. The software provider said it does not work because the chip is Exinos instead of Qualcom. Only works the code for Testing *#*#4636#*#*, but from there I cannot activate the de GSM and WCDMA/UTMS network bands
