    Nice find! But, like you, I'm going to wait at least a day or two before I do anything with it.

    Well he says all it does is create the disable_lagfix file on the sdcard and the reboot reboots so its the same difference just is faster for some

    I prefer the zip, for disabling voodoo, no worries with that thing. The disable_voodoo caused the 0.00mb internal storage for me.

    The app worked for me. I used it, and installed Birdman's kernel. Smooth as butter.

    Okay, I just used the toggle app to disable voodoo and when my phone rebooted it just went to a black screen and kept force closing launcher pro...any suggestions?

    Edit: Used CWM Recovery and everything booted fine...too bad my last backup was three weeks ago :-/

    the issues arent so much with the voodoo kernels themselves but 90 % of problems seem to be in removing it improperly or not removing before trying to odin restore. A lot of people are making a new folder disable_lagfix instead of a new FILE disable_lagfix in the sdcard/voodoo folder when trying to disable it and then flashing stuff on top of that.

    Others (like myself) ran into issues when flashing a voodoo kernel that we were getting bombed with fc's on the next boot and forgot to uninstall voodoo before flashing odin. When that happens the phones partition has not been put back to stock so then you are unable to read internal memory and issues arise.

    The fc hell seems to be a big one, and many have fixed simply by batt pull, clockwork, fix permissions. While others have had to manually uninstall voodoo and odin back to stock.

    Adrynlyne put out a voodoo uninstaller to flash in recovery but is still recommending that people manually uinstall voodoo in recovery with adb by pushing the original mbr.

    I tend to think that at some point (although I'm not wishing it on anyone) everyone will run into a similar issue either by making a simple mistake or just bad luck. Once you have ithappen though and you fix its reassuring knowing that what seems like a totally f-ed up phone can be completely fixed by taking a deep breath and repeating your steps to see what you did wrong.

    You're a pretty knowledgable user Piiman, so you may easily learn from our mistakes and not have an issue :cool:

    Thanks for the quick reply and thanks for the heads up. Are these Voodoo kernels worth it? and also noticed they had like three so can you load them all or do you have to pick one?

    There is s Voodo lagfix Toggle app in the Market, but no Button Reboot. The Voodoo toggle app is by a Ryan Conrad. Is this the same app here? or is it different?

    It's different. Mine isn't on the market yet, but here's the URL:

    http://www.zennmaster.com/Android/RebootButton.apk

    Mine's also free...

    I also updated a couple of things. In the first version, I think it might have been possible to click the toggle and then reboot before the disable_lagfix file was completely written, so I slowed it down a bit. Might be a case of suspenders and a belt, but better safe than sorry!
