- CWM w/ PBJT (Voodoo)
Please help advise me in recovery. I was attempting to load a swype.apk using quickboot (recommended from you). When I selected recovery in quickboot, the phone when to the bootscreen with SAMSUNG and I am stuck there. I am rooted with Voodoo Lagfix kernel flashed. Gunner suggested that I use ODIN and re-flash the voodoo kernel. Any other suggestions from you? Unfortunately I will not be able to do this until later tonight. Thanks in advance. Sorry to be a pain in the *** noob.

Thanks DX did it. One problem I cannot download from market. I neeed to go where I get a solid 4g signal. If memory serves me right it seems that in my apt my phone would go between 4g and 3g now it is just solid 3g gonna check some settings. But any suggestions.
Will be getting that Machiato to uAKA TrendyProfessional1

I finally got around to rooting my replacement today, and Odin works, the phone shows up, I clicked start on the Voodoo kernel it says Pass, then Reset. My charge goes dark and then nothing. I know on my original phone it worked without issue, but this time it won't root. Very odd. I know I'm not missing anything, battery out, open Odin, press vol. down until D/L mod shows up. Select the kernel (even tried a fresh d/l) still no go.
I did restore using the Rooted Stock ED1, then updated and restart/install update. It still says ED1 in the about phone section. Odd.

Only reason I would like to do this is to root to get rid of bloatware, wifi tether app, and OC eventually. Also really want to switch over to ext4 to get rid of this darn lag. Other than that i like my phone the way it is, i dont want/need a different rom and would like my phone to still be reliable. Is this right for me? Or should I wait for more stable kernels?

The problem is I have been having nothing but issue after issue after issue trying to get Voodoo and CWM to work with a deodexed ED2 ROM or a few others. Its funny, I know what I am doing, I can get it to work but it hangs here or there. I was going to try one more thing tonight and that was to install CWM, flash the Voodoo Lagfix kernel, install a ED2 Deodexed (remove bloat from there myself) and if it hangs flash the Voodoo Lagfix kernel one more time as suggested.
If this still fails me, again, then I will hop on the AB wagon. DroidXcon's work is excellent.

I will be attempting this tommorow, but have a few more quick questions.
1. What happens if there is an OTA update?
1a) Is it automatically blocked or does one have to not update and wait for an update to this kernel?
2. Also is there a way to create a backup of my stuff before attempting this in case anything goes haywire?
3. Is there an easy way to uroot/turn off voodoo in case phone has to go back to verizon for anything?

I just updated to this and it works great! thanks!
one question... I lost my email notification icon... it doesn't have the # of unread messages next to the badge. Not sure if this is from the flash or, if it's from LauncherPro Plus. Any input from anyone would be greatly appreciated!
