Android Location Update not returning

I am trying to get android location , I have this piece of code yet location is never returned. I have searched on stack overflow.

I found this bug : https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=57707
But there is no fix till now, or i couldnt find one.
This is the code. Any help would be much appreciated

Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
criteria.setCostAllowed(true);
criteria.setAccuracy(Criteria.ACCURACY_COARSE);
final LocationManager lm = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
String provider = lm.getBestProvider(criteria, true);
Location l = lm.getLastKnownLocation(provider);
final String date = fmtForPresenter.print(dt);
if(l==null) {
lm.requestLocationUpdates(provider, 100, 200,
new android.location.LocationListener() {
@Override
public void onStatusChanged(String provider, int status,
Bundle extras) {
}

@Override
public void onProviderEnabled(String provider) {
Log.e("PROVIDER", "PRO: " + provider);
}

@Override
public void onProviderDisabled(String provider) {
Log.e("PROVIDER", "PRO: " + provider);
}

@Override
public void onLocationChanged(final Location location) {

lat = location.getLatitude();
lng = location.getLongitude();
presenter.getFoot(userProfile.getToken(),"public",lat,lng,date);
if ((ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(getApplicationContext(), android.Manifest.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION) ==
PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED &&
ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(getApplicationContext(), android.Manifest.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION) ==
PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED)) {
lm.removeUpdates(this);
}
}
});
}
else {
lat = l.getLatitude();
lng = l.getLongitude();
presenter.getFoot(userProfile.getToken(),"public",lat,lng,date);
}


EDIT:

If i restart the phone location works again but i dont take this as a solution since i cant tell all my clients to restart their phones everytime there is a problem

Answer

Use this class: (To use it:

FindGPSLocation gps;
                    gps = new FindGPSLocation(ClientsActivity.this);
                    if(gps.canGetLocation()){

                        latitude = String.valueOf(gps.getLatitude());
                        longitude = String.valueOf(gps.getLongitude());

                    }
                    else
                    {

                        gps.showSettingsAlert();
                    }

)

public class FindGPSLocation extends Service implements LocationListener {

private final Context mContext;

// flag for GPS status
boolean isGPSEnabled = false;

// flag for network status
boolean isNetworkEnabled = false;

// flag for GPS status
boolean canGetLocation = false;

Location location; // location

// The minimum distance to change Updates in meters
private static final long MIN_DISTANCE_CHANGE_FOR_UPDATES = 10; // 10 meters
