    Samsung used a shitty proprietary RFS filesystem that is compiled as shitty fat, an extremely slow filesystem. Ext4 is what it should have shipped with, and it makes the I/O much faster. It's not necessarily and overall lag fix, although it does do that, it's more for making apps that read/write to the filesystem work faster.

    jt really is the man. First his OC kernel was always was the most stable; now this [admittedly we lose OC temporarily]. But I have to imagine within a week we'll be back at least 1.2Ghz and ext4 lag fixed. I'm paypal-ing the lad some $$

    BTW, I like that female droid voice. Step 1, Step2, pure coolness. Let's get her on the bootscreen

    I'm sure we will. He built the OC kernal and he built this [with a lot of help I know]. Any day we'll have the both combined and complied together

    I know. We all want. But, we also have to appreciate what we just got too.
    BTW and for once I didnt bother with a ShootMe shot but my Quadrant score is 1733. Which is right in line with what we were total to expect from this real lag fix.
    I can confirm that former slow spots are now much snappier. Specifically, the Gallery is notably faster. Settings>Applications>Manage Applications [a notorious one for me]. Actually it seems everything is just snappier. Task Manager, Handcent, geez you name it, it feels faster to me. This lag fix actually makes the device feel faster than the 1.2Ghz did [combine them and Im in heaven].

    Do you need to be rooted to get this working? I know it doesnt require a root for the other phones.

    so to uninstall 0.1...

    -open root explorer
    -navigate to sdcard\Voodoo
    -create folder "disable lagfix"
    -reboot

    That's it?

    looks like using my method is working...

    I flashed .01, with a 4 minute first boot.

    then I created the folder, and the reboot is taking another 4 or so minutes...

    Hmm not looking good... my uninstall is taking forever at the Samsung screen... sigh

    It's not a folder, it's file. That's probably why you're getting FC's.
