I had a similar experience with my Freerunner. I initially installed
only gpsd and tangogps. I reliably got a fix within about 7 minutes
at least half a dozen times. It never failed completely. Then I
installed and ran openmoko-agpsui. My unit has not managed to sync
up with even a single satellite since then, dispite my sitting around with
it for several hours in an open area. In desperation, I re-flashed the
kernel and rootfs, and again installed only gpsd and tangogps for
GPS software. No joy. The GPS init now seems completely nonfunctional.
