    Default How to activate n97 (mini) GPS?

    Hello,
    I bought a N97mini of ebay. The seller stated that it comes from Syria and has the inbuilt GPS deactivated, but it can easily be reactivated by an 'expert'.
    Well, what I did was to change the productcode and flashed the phone with Phoenix. But nothing changed! In the positioning methods menu there is only 'bluetooth gps' not gps or a-gps. Also tried different productcodes and also flashing with JAF didn't help either.
    So I wondered if any of you guys could help me. Perhaps I also need to change 'HW Version' or i don't know what.
    Please help me if you know anything.
    Thanks

    yes, that's what I tried... didn't do the job. Maybe the Gps-chip is missing but it is RM-555 and 'Made in Finland'

    The N97 has the GPS antenna directly behind his back cover (no need to screw it open)

    Not sure about the MINI, but maybe you can look if it's there..

    No, it's different from the n97. The cover only covers the battery not the section around the camera. Is there a software methode to determine if the gps chip is missing? Perhaps the Phoenix testing stuff, but I don't know how to do that.
