You're wasting your time. It's not even linked to the OS. It's linked to the firmware file which is the same throughout all the carriers (at least the instruction set to disable the GPS on VZW). If you really want to fix this issue find a way to change the Carrier ID the phone shows when you do #HELP* Send. If you can change this ID you can defeat the GPS lockout. Find my other posts on this, I'm getting tired of repeating myself.
