    Running nicely here too, hopefully won't see the slow downs when the device has been on for a day, which I did get with the OCLF.

    Not great, benchmark results are worse than OCLF and it seems to effect brightness level on lowest, really dull with red tint... Not cool ..

    Removing as I type this.

    From the code, it's writing stuff to your sdcard with it's own code.
    For me, that's not too comfortable. The other OCLF just copies your existing stuff.

    I wonder what if I unmount my /sdcard (say like when I connect to my laptop). Anyone care to try?

    I have not felt the need for any lag fix at all, I like the thought of my SGS not being tempered by unofficial and intrusive patch fixes.

    Bottom line is though I just never felt the need for it, also I just dont know what the patch actually do and you dont know if it is actually harmful.

    Unless i can see the codes and understand what each line does, nothing unofficial will ever reach my device.

    I held this believe all the way from WM devices, back in the days all the changes were reg entries and you can see and make sense of what they are, but these I just dont know.

    This is soooo much better than the OCLF imo, benchmarks dont often reflect real use, and the fix imrpoves everyday use by a huge amount

    Maybe, but I didnt see any note of the lag fix screwing around with screen brightness when using lowest setting, it looks horrible now and I can't live with this.

    To make matters worse theres no way to remove the changes the brightness so I'm going to have to re-flash.

    Avoid this one guys, it's not just a lag fix.

    I wonder Voodoo would come up with a version that has just the lag fix and not mess around with the firmware.

    Despite the benchmarks this lagfix is indeed much better than the OCLF (which was getting falsely elevated benchmarks).

    The brightness is OK for me, the lowest setting here is much lower than it used to be, its intended only for night time use (because before even at the dimmest setting the screen burned the eyes when viewed in a dark room). At one step up from the lowest its like the old dim setting, and just fine for colour tone.

    I do agree they should be offered seperately.

    No, it only disabled the lagfix and even then it does not remove all the files, you try deleting the voodoo folder and update file and the next time to reboot the phone it will apply the ext4 file system again...

    You NEED to re-flash to completely remove this, they even told me so on their irc channel, I recommend you visit it and ask some questions about what you've installed.

    The lag fix is great, but colour fix looks worse on my phone than original settings. But in next version you will be able to turn on/off this feature which will be ideal.

    What's with the ridiculously (and obviously) sped up video demo? That just negates the whole point of a demonstration video and makes it worthless for comparison o_o
