Now I have a noob question. I've been reading that rooting can cause GPS to malfunction or not function as well as it would have on an unrooted phone. Is there any truth to this? It would be unfortunate for me b/c I use the GPS on my phone nearly everyday.
Rooting by itself shouldn't affect it in any way, it's normally when someone is loading custom roms that issues like that start to appear.
I've rooted my tab with no issues when using GPS, but it's not tied to a carrier so YMMV, post the question in XDA for a more definitive answer.
