    I have a tethered jailbroken iPhone 3GS iOS 5.0.1 baseband 05.16.05 which was jailbroken with redsn0w 0.9.9b8. The GPS does not work. I downloaded GPS Status from the App Store and it shows the GPS is off by 1000 meters.

    Is there a way to fix the GPS?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Not unless you remove and replace the faulty chip somehow.

    i have a bigger question, Why are you on a 5.0.1 tethered jailbreak? There is an untethered jailbreak for 5.0.1

    After I did the jailbreak I didn't pay much attention to new developments. And I never had to do a reboot so being tethered was not a big deal.

    With the GPS problem I figured it was time to look into things but this seems to be a unique problem to me and not to jailbreaking.

    Haha yeah its definitely a weird problem I've never heard of before. Usually when people's GPS malfuctions/fails, it can't detect the location at all.
