Just received your gooapple and GPS just doesnt want to work? try the following...

Install fasterfix from market: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=825717
Make sure you are rooted (using superone click 2.3.3)-> Install fasterfix -> launch and select Europe (as ur in U.k) from the server list,save. just to confirm it worked-> using Root Explorer, make sure you have a gps.conf file sitting under system/etc after you have run fasterfix as the original gooapple roms put the gps.conf file in the wrong location (system/etc/firmware).
check permissions of gps.conf in root explorer 

Owner=read\write
Group=read
Others=read

Install "GPS Test" from market
Install "GPS Status & Toolbox"

on the phone goto Settings->location services-> turn on Use GPS Satellites & GPS EPO Assistance & A-GPS & Use wireless networks (wireless networks not needed but i do it anyway). Make sure data is enabled aswell to update google maps.

Go into "GPS Status & Toolbox" and reset A-GPS under settings then exit, go back into "GPS Status & Toolbox" and it should download new A-GPS data if not go back into settings and click download. exit.

Go into GPS Test and check you have Sats showing up and bars on the signal graph, bars should move up depending on signal.

If it looks good go into googlemaps and see if it finds your house within 10 meters (not 100 or 1000, as that just means its using cell towers or wifi to locate you. GPS chip should actually lock within a meter or so).

Hope it works for you. as I mentioned earlier my gps does not work at all at the moment. But in theory you should be able to see something in gps test app even without the correct info in gps.conf file, will just take longer to lock.

what are NTP servers?
sometimes there are drift errors and dilution in time precision in the time keeping in GPS receivers. Getting a proper GPS fix all depends on high precision of time keeping. That is why NTP servers are used to correct time errors. Read more about Time Synchronization using NTP here. Yes, using faster or server more local to you will result in a faster TTFF (this is why you can also manually add the NTP servers closer to you from http://www.pool.ntp.org/, but faster fix should still work fine).

this is a simple manual gps.conf file for europe..

NTP_SERVER=europe.pool.ntp.org
XTRA_SERVER_1=http://xtra1.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_2=http://xtra2.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_3=http://xtra3.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin

SUPL_NO_SECURE_PORT=3425

and this is a more local gps.conf for NZ.

NTP_SERVER=0.nz.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.oceania.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.oceania.pool.ntp.org
XTRA_SERVER_1=http://xtra1.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin

Ok so this is my first wroten tutorial on How to have more internal space on Gooapple V5/Goophone 4gs so for sure there will have some syntax errors.
What you need:
-Backup your rom!(very important)
-Flash_Tools.exe(in download links)
-A toothpick or sim card tool(to put in the headphones)
-Drivers(in download links)
-Net framework 3.0 or up
-Patience!


Plug the phone in your computer and close the phone
Extract and then run Flash_Tools.exe
Then click options and choose USB Mode(make sure there is a hook)

Then click Scatter-Loading and open "MT6573_Android_scatter.txt"

When that is done. Uncheck "PRELOADER" and "DSP_BL"

Now is the moment of truth lol! Prepare your phone and the toothpick or sim card tool.
Click Download, than you have 15 seconds to put the toothpick or sim card tool in the headphone jack
When that is done it will start downloading like this:
When it is succesfully done, this will appear:
After you click okay this: will also appear:

You can then click "x" and quit Flash_Tools.exe
To boot: Long-click then power button the booting time may be longer then usual.
Hope it helped!
