    Samsung Omnia i910 GPS unlocked

    The new Samsung Omnia ROM brings with it the power to free your Omnia to use the integrated GPS hardware with third-party mapping applications like Live Search and Google (NSDQ: GOOG) Maps. This “unofficial” ROM beats Verizon to its own punch. As you might recall, Verizon had promised to unlock GPS receivers in the Omnia, Saga and Touch Pro in the first half of 2009. But waiting for Verizon to launch anything these days is like watching mold grow.




    In addition to the GPS unlock, this unofficial Omnia ROM offers:
    • 5% battery increments!
    • Smart Memo
    • Opera Mobile 9.5 build 15679
    • Favorite Settings, now known as Easy Settings
    • Windows Live
    • Dialer Touch Lock Settings-Off, 2s, 5s, 10s.
    • Disable Threaded Text Messaging via System Settings
    • iPhone-esque popup keyboard keys
    • Better kinetic scrolling in Samsung apps
    • Samsung Volume Control


    If you’re brave enough to flash your Samsung Omnia with unofficial firmware, head on over to MoDaCo for the ROM download and flashing instructions. Make sure you back up all your data before hand, because it’s not going to be there after your ROM flash. Remember, this ROM is only intended to be used with the Samsung i910 Omnia - the one with the Verizon logo.

    hi,
    I was pretty disappointed to see Verizon lock their GPS chip to only work with a subscription to their P.O.S navigator. Hope to see the unlock come asap.

    I've flashed my phone successfully, and I haven't run into any problems. I haven't noticed a significant performance increase though. I guess it's worth it if you want to learn how to flash your phone or something, but that's it.

    hi,
    GPS unlock means unlock. you won’t have to use vznavigator. it may be a battery killer though, haven’t heard. I am much more excited about getting custom Roms made from this. like win 6.5 theme.
