    Anyone know which voodoo is included in the SC2.1v?

    Is the Voodoo 5.4.1 Stable for Froyo 2.2.1 the same one installed, or is it a different one? will it work or is it not newer or better than the one included in the package?

    jt is probably the only one who can answer this question. Its my understanding at our voodoo is not a direct copy and paste of the i9000 voodoo. With .29 kernels jt had to do some degree of modification, e.g. he/we had our own branch/tree. Without kernel source I think we're even more removed from the direct voodoo source itself.
    People can bash quad but if you look at the I/O numbers from the current .32kernels and the .29 voodoo kernels you will see that .29 voodoo has higher I/O numbers. Likely once jt gets kernel source he will be able to dial voodoo in even more efficiently.

    Also for the causal reader, never try to flash any of the voodoo files directly from the voodoo website. The i9000 stuff wont work on our SF and will bork you.

    Yeah I only caught it cause I knew 5.4.1 was the latest official build. Plus there are a lot of people asking what is voodoo so in addition to my short answer interpretation I often link the website. However, a disclaimer might need to be given for some newer SF owners who might unknowingly try to odin some of those files on or whatnot
