GPS has been not working on my Meizu MX4 for a long time time now. Recently it
went back to life after the OTA 13 update but only for a couple of hours.
After I tried to connect to WIFI, the GPS dropped. And now, after reboot, or
delete the config file as advised in previous comments, I am back to the
It used to work sometimes when wifi was available but now it seems that the
phone is also recently having big problems connecting to WIFI (cannot connect

Status in location-service package in Ubuntu:

I can currently only get a location based on wifi / phone network. If
I disable this feature, I get no location at all. Not after reboot,
not sometimes, not ever.
Trying to do: Navigate using GPS and/or network
What I expect: Accuracy is high with all location services on. It
decreases slightly when network based location is switched off. It
decreases sharply when only GPS is switched off.
What happens: Accuracy is very low (30m - 2000m) with all location
services on. Location is impossible when network based location is
switched off. It doesn't make a difference if I switch the GPS on or
This may be a hardware issue, and I'll probably be sending in my phone
(MX4) for check/repair, but that would mean missing my phone. I'd much
rather troubleshoot myself.
I already have location test and sensorsstatus to monitor this, but I
want to know more about if the chip is functioning. Which logs are
relevant? I've thought about flashing android on and seeing if that
helps (which makes it a software issue), or doesn't (which makes it a
hardware issue). Is there an easier way to get an answer to the
