    Default [ROOT] [KERNEL] [Repost of jt1134] Root,ANY build w/ Voodoo lagfix!*updated*

    [WARN]Android Central, jt1134, nor myself are responsible for modification done to your phone. This includes, bricking, exploding, spontaneous combustion, or it running away with your significant other!!!
    [/WARN]
    [INFO]
    THIS IS REPOSTED I AM IN NO WAY INVOLVED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS KERNEL. ALL CREDIT GOES TO PLEASE THANK HIM I HEAR HE LIKES BEER.[/INFO]

    [NOTE]XDA original post: [/NOTE]

    This kernel will work on any current sw version for the Charge.

    Please find below a kernel package hacked for the following:

    permanent adb root
    installs Superuser and su binary automatically on boot
    includes Voodoo ext4 lagfix - CREDIT TO SUPERCURIO!
    lowmemorykiller tweaks
    sdcard readahead cache speed tweak


    If you are using Odin to flash, simply flash the below package. If you are using Heimdall, remove the zImage file from the below package and flash it.

    After flashing the first time, you will hear a voice from the phone telling you what is occurring. The conversion to ext4 will take a few minutes. BE PATIENT. Once it boots, Superuser should be installed, and your phone's filesystem will be converted from rfs to ext4. To disable Voodoo lagfix and convert back to rfs, simply create a file on your sdcard inside the Voodoo folder, named "disable-lagfix". Then reboot your phone and listen for the voices again. This will also take a few minutes.

    Please familiarize yourself with using Odin or Heimdall and have backup images on-hand if you are going to use this kernel. If you screw up, you will need them

    I DO NOT have a Charge, these files have been tested by other users. As always I assume absolutely NO liability for anything that happens if you use this kernel. Phone blows up? It's on you to fix it

    If you find this software helpful please click the "Thanks" or the "Donate" button. Either is fine by me. If you would like to investigate the changes that were made, please feel free to find them .

    Enjoy.


    EDIT
    Uploaded 2nd version

    EDIT
    Uploaded 3rd version
    changed the install scripts around
    should copy files more efficiently
    fix file ownership and permissions
    UNTESTED!

    EDIT
    Uploaded 4th version
    Confirmed root from independent user!
    rewrote install process to preserve file path and permissions
    will look into the bootanimation graphics issue



    if you do not have root:
    * check adb shell and see if you get a '#' prompt. If so, you *have* root on adb, and you may install whatever you want in /system
    * check to see if Superuser app is installed
    * check to see if /system/xbin/su exists on your phone.
    If you have problems, please post the results of those checks. Thanks.[/.

    do i have to unzip this file before i flash it with odin...?

    I did using winzip and i thought it was supposed to unzip as a .tar.md5, but all I'm getting is a zImage file...

    I've only used odin once before when i used the downgrade to ed1 so i could root... i feel like this is my new catch phrase but please excuse the noobery.

    I'm still a bit new to Android and I'm not planning on making these modifications until I understand the process a lot better, but I had one quick question.

    From the post above: "This kernel will work on any current sw version for the Charge."

    So does that mean that someone with ED2 can use this kernel and do you maintain root access afterwards? Sorry for the noobishness of my question.

    I have flashed different Roms to my TB and DX but this for the Charge are confusing me somewhat... If I use this "fix" will I stilll have Touchwiz on my phone ? I'm kinda leaning towards sticking with the Touchwiz for a bit longer.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like the V4 has been testing well enough to give it a roll, going to do it now.

    Well before I could get into V4, I made a fateful error and now I am stuck in the Samsung Recovery screen with this on the screen.

    Android system recover <3e>

    (choices)
    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    format internal sd-card

    -- bootmode=7 from cmdline...

    -- Movi_check Start..!!
    checksum confirmation need_checksum[0]
    Not need checksum confirmation

    -- MOvi_check already executed!!..

    -- movi_checking done!..
    # MANUAL MODE #

    Once I get the d/l completed (which will take a while to do) I will give it a shot.

    I have tried several options and suggestions from the folks over at XDA-Developers but so far Odin has not been agreeing with me and it hasn't restored my phone. Now I admit it was my error and resulted from not paying attention.

    So has anyone successfully recovered from this over here at AC? If so what did you do to get yours back to stock rfs system?

    First, thanks to all the experienced users for patience with noobs. I am currently rooted w/ ED1. Can I simply install this kernel to solve the factory lag issues on my Charge? I am happy with everything on this phone except the lag. I already have superuser and terminal emulator installed. Do I need to remove these apps prior to install of this kernel? I am running SBD 3D shell app and want to keep it. Thanks for the help.
