    I just picked up a Fascinate and would like some input. I still have my Droid X and plan on keeping it but I'm planning on using the Fascinate also. I was wondering a couple of things. I'm planning on rooting but I was curious about the lag fix...is it worth it? Does it work? Also, any other suggestions on what I could do would be greatly appreciated. :D

    imo the voodoo lagfix helps...but is not worth the headache atm. root, install clockwork, get a new kernel and enjoy the mods/themes out there :)

    yeah im not saying it doesnt speed things up (and personally all things being equal ill use it) but the risk/reward atm balances against it.

    whenever jt1134 gets voodoo beta 5 properly integrated in a kernel (current version is very bugg) ill be all over that.

    dont know where we d be with out jt actually on the sf :eek:

    I say skip the voodoo, the speed difference is marginal at best in day to day use.
