Verizon Wireless rolls out new GPS-unlocked ROM for the Samsung Saga

Thus far, Verizon Wireless has made good on 66 percent of its promise to unlock GPS on its latest Windows Mobile handsets. First we had an update for the HTC Touch Pro and today we have an update for the Samsung Saga. Left behind and still waiting for GPS freedom, for the time being, is the Samsung Omnia. Samsung Saga owners, though, should take a closer look at the newly-posted CE07 Software Upgrade which includes “Open Standalone LBS Supported and Performance Enhanced. (This may support 3rd party applications)” as part of its change log. Users who have updated their Sagas are initially reporting that the GPS is now unlocked on COM 9 and ROM cookers are already in the process of extracting the new ROM in order to embed the GPS unlock into custom ROMS. Interested parties can obtain the software update directly from Verizon’s support page for the Samsung Saga. Happy GPS-ing!
