I can't get any GPS lock at all with my phone. I downloaded SatStat from F-Droid and it can't get any satellite lock.

Is anybody else having GPS problems with stock or custom ROMs on this phone?

If stock users aren't having problems, then I know it's a software issue with LineageOS and can report it.

Unfortunately, I didn't test the GPS function before I unlocked, and rooted my phone. (so stupid I know!)

I posted in XDA Developer forum to see if anybody has issues too: (can't post a link)
