    I bricked my Vibrant right after an all night no holds barred recovery using Odin. Long story.
    I then allowed the Froyo update and it completely bricked my phone dead! Tmo is sending a new unit but asked if I had used Voodoo Lag Fix. Odd thing to ask and I can only assume they were going to void my handset exchange.

    Word to the wise. Stay away from voodoo?

    They confirmed that phones are bricking with the Froyo ota update. I'm just saying!

    Always remove lag fixes before flashing. Always.

    Did you try Odining Eugene's Froyo no longer brick? Voodoo screwed up my phone till I used that.

    Voodoo is perfectly safe if used correctly.

    True...but it's not for total noobs! I've never had a single moment's problem with Voodoo. I love running it.

    Are you still running Fusion or did you jump on the Froyo wagon?
