    I was wondering if there was a way to map your current location based on the cell tower info from the field test menu?

    yeah, that's a great question...

    It seemed to me that when i first turned on my phone and tried the Maps app for the first time, it somehow knew where i was. I was out of my billing zip code when i did this, so i was totally impressed that it loaded my local area. So i guessed that it used tower info.

    And ever since, i've been wondering how to make it do that on command. I did a restore recently, and i'm pretty sure it reset the maps app and did the same thing again.

    Anyone looking in the opened firmware see anything like this?
