    Baseband: 190000UGJK3
    Kernel: 2.6.32.9 SetiroNKernel_128_ver#142

    Doesn't look like the modem/kernel is backed up with rom manager so they stick, if you reflash cog2.3 it should revert to the cog modem/kernel.

    Any rom posted can have many parts, the build (the system, graphics and tweaks), the kernel (coding for main system), the modem (how the phone communicates to the outside world) and maybe even a lag fix. When you flash a rom or install from zip using Rom Manager, it installs everything that is included in the Rom, which may or may not include a kernel, modem and/or lag fix. The one click Odin restore for example installs the build, kernel and modem that the phone came with.

    The issue is when Rom Manager does a rom backup, it only creates the backup of the build, it does not create a backup of the kernel, modem or lag fix. So if you have a backup of your stock JH7. Then install, say Cog 3b6, which includes everything and replaces what was on the phone, you no longer have the same modem, kernel or lag fix as the stock rom. Well say you are not too happy with cog so you disable voodoo (make sure you always disable a lag fix when flashing) and restore your old JH7 backup, it may crash, or do woth wierd things. The reason, the modem and kernel no longer match the setup required by JH7 build.

    So in your case, you have the modem and kernel from P5, but the build from Cog. Best option, flash a new/clean version of cog (if you want cog), so you have the correct everything for your backup then restore the cog backup. BTY if you did not disable the lag fix when you created the backup, chances are the backup will never restore correctly, no matter what you do.

    I exactly did that. But i have one question...Cog2.3be comes with voodoo lag fix, so when I flash it to stock rom using Odin, does my ophone still have voodoo lag fix?

    If you flash to stock you do not have voodoo.
