all i can say is WOW, my epic runs smoothly on 1.6 GHZ kernel.
how fast is yours? :-)

Looks like this isn't 1.6GHz - from the dev's 1st post on XDA:
"It is missing a key component that is making Linpack give out bad readings, and we have a good idea to what the problem is. But, what's actually going on here is a lower clock speed acting like 1.6. This is why you are seeing frame-rate increases and overall performance increases. Once that code is put into place, you'll see it run even smoother for heavy processes. It has been stated, but actually running this at 1.6GHz would cause so much battery drain because it would require ridiculous voltage. So, we've met halfway. It is a 1600MHz step that DOES clock higher, but it's really closer to 1.4GHz."
I'm starting to doubt if it's even as high as 1.4GHz.

he may have actually done it!!!! team whiskey was fake and his first kernel was fake. but i am actually seeing better performance and better benches now!!!! looks like hes done some good stuff. gunna make a kernel with it and see if i can replicate the results!

The Dev's Explanation of Leaving Voodoo Color Out
"My current stance on VooDoo color:
I won't be adding it in anytime in the near future. While I see the benefit of it, it's something that I don't particularly like. I think the screen looks cleaner without it. Plus, I can't see how it could be affective across the board. All screen are different, so how can one fix work universally? Plus, those brightness tweaks that everyone talks about are included in here. They are part of an entirely different system. Voodoo was a color modification.
Now, in case anyone somehow missed it, v1.0.1 is posted. Here's a rundown:
-I've got 1.6GHz working. I added the code for it to properly step. It's running at 1.3v.
-I've stopped a process called Carrier IQ in the init.rc. This is, essentially, Sprint spyware used to gather data about your usage. TO ROM DEVS: You are going to want to remove the files from your ROM to make sure it doesn't start itself later. ACS has tested it and it doesn't seem to start again, but always on the safe side.
What's in the works:
-Adding a step/few steps between 1.2GHz and 1.6GHz. This should improve overall smoothness of the kernel.
-I'm going to up the voltage on 1.6GHz just a little. I *think* this is the cause of the vibration problem, but this is just a late-night theory.
I want to add that interactive seems to play well this kernel. I haven't played with it at all, but it doesn't seem to be ignoring mt minimum frequency settings like it was before. I don't know what's up with this. I suspect it has something to do with setting the defconfig minimum to 200MHz, but who knows. It doesn't drop to 100MHz, so it doesn't lock up... But that's just my experience. Because of this, I suggest interactive as your governor. I'll make it default for 1.0.4.
Thanks for your support and kind words, guys! It means a lot and keeps me going."
I have to go with his feelings on this, one thing I understand is how organic screens work and how an across the board tweak could not be consistent on all AMOLED screenes.

Have you ever tried it? When I hold my screen up next to my friend's vibrant or my brother's fascinate there is a noticeable improvement - their screens have a very blue tint and text is jagged in comparison.
But hey, maybe I just got lucky that it works wonders on my screen.

hmm i know what voodoo is and everything. but i just never noticed anything wrong with my screen looking blue or text being jagged.
i just opened up the app "places" cuz thats the only thing i can find with a white background - i just factory reset my phone because for some reason my clocks timing was off. i think it was an app because i wiped and then restored my apps and then it happened again. this time i wiped and am just installing apps one by one without restoring anything from titanium and its working fine.
But im holding it up to my computer screen - macbook pro - and i guess i see a little bit of a difference but not much. definitely not enough for me to notice and bug me
oh well to each his own

If that's how you feel then don't look at the before and after pictures on the voodoo site, cause if you do you may start noticing
I didn't notice the blue tint as much as I did the jagged text when I first got my Epic.

And yes, I know they are simulated but they are also pretty accurate. Maybe a better example was with an older version of Voodoo that I had, which only worked at 100% brightness. That was cool because you could toggle the brightness in settings and see the screen change from blue-ish whites to whites, and jagged text to smooth.

checked his forum. and it says "This kernel has a MixUp kernel base. I deviated once Interactive got working. I also removed the Voodoo color modification. So, there's that."
i think you might be talking about his original release maybe. idk but if you got a quote please let me know as im curious
