Some iPhones In Egypt Still Have GPS Hardware, Can Be Hacked Back To Life

As you might remember, the Egyptian government required Apple to disable the GPS functionality in iPhone 3G handsets sold in the country. We assumed this meant that the GPS hardware would be permanently crippled or removed entirely, but it turns out that at least the iPhones sold in Pyramid Park still have the GPS hardware installed, and it’s possible to hack it to get it working again. Instructions can be found here.
