    are you actually running it saps? when i jumped onto irc this morning it looked like a war zone of people stuck and unable to boot into cwr and saying to stay away? :eek:

    for once i may hold off and see what develops...later today at least :)

    Be mindful apparently cwm is still non functioning after flashing a few peeps tried the old disable_lagfix and got problems :(
    supercurio did stop in and Im sure jt will resolve any issues today
    kinds sucks for those guys who adopted earlier though since jt dropped it and then went to sleep
    I feel worse because a few guys were sitting on the fence and they asked me what I was going to do and I said jump but then I DL'd it and made some late night food and came back to install and problems were everywhere so I didnt
    On top of that geeknik then sends me the best stupidfast kernel ever so Im still waiting myself.

    No not yet :(. I feel bad too because humbly speaking based on reputation when I said I was going to like 3 guys sitting on the fence did too. Only I hit DL and then walked away to make some noodles and stuff ending up watching sportscenter for a bit and then came back to the mess. supercurio seems to think its a quick fix in clockwork and thus I imagine by tomorrow things should be rosy again

    yeah im sure its only a few lines of code jt has to fix, but my concern is for the people who cant mount on the computer or get into recovery...but im sure people smarter than me will figure it out :)

    for once glad i didnt jump the gun :eek:

    Me too sometimes I'm like this sucks most of the stuff happens when I'm asleep because I live on east coast...but this time it looks to have paid off. I hate it for the ones that did jump right in though

    Is voodoo5 helping performance *that much* ?

    Are you talking about SF v 1.5? I loaded it up last night, and its damn nice. I thought I read it was UV and it makes sense...even with full outlook sync on all night I only dropped 1%/hr.

    yeah voodoo (well in its current forms) is the source of most borks with this phone.

    id get the hang of flashing kernels, themes, roms completely down before considering it :)

    When I download a rom in rom manager...say jts super clean...it prompts with glossy mod then stock sms...that means it will be already themed correct? Why do kernells flash and reboot in like 3 mins compared to roms that never load for me? lol

    So what's the scoop on this hawtness? Can I flash over my old Voodoo? Can one now flash ROMs and non-Voodoo kernels without disabling?

    apparently with what is out you need to manually flash something to get cwr to work right. so until its fixed to do that automatically id stay away as its pretty complicated...im not gonna attempt it yet

    Oh dude you definitely dont have to worry about that, im always late to the party for fear of problems.

    I did desecrate my beauteous computer and installed Winblows, so at least I have Odin to fall back on now.

    considering past voodoo experiences.....i may never touch it, especially when the non-voodoo kernels like JT super clean and geekniks stupid fast work so well with no relative risk

    This is all DJ05, I assume? Is BLN working on it yet?

    Nice to know a revert modem is out... I think I'll be flashing when I get home.

    how are voodoo kernals different from non-voodoo kernals and what are the risks and benefits of voodoo kernals?

    bln works with voodoo 5, or at least it does for me. im sure you can run it with DJ05 but its a modified DJ05 kernel so all wont be well

    voodoo kernels change your file system from rfs (crappy) to ext4. the latest voodoo 5 is supposed to be a leap forward as jts most recent rfs kernels had caught up to old vooodoo imo.

    our systems have terrible write speeds with rfs (apparently read is ok though) and this compensates for that.

    my advice before going for voodoo, read up all you can on it...have the android sdk installed, and be prepared for a bork.
