Noob Alert: Voodoo on (Unrooted)Official 2.2 Captivate
I have an unrooted Official 2.2 Captivate. I want to get rid of the lag. Alot of people recommend Voodoo to get rid of lag on Galaxy S phones.
Does my Cappy need to be rooted for me to put Voodoo on it?
Or can I just do this:
1. Put captivate-voodoo3.0_bln_v1.10.zip as "update.zip" on my internal SD card
2. 3 button startup thing.
3. Reinstall packages
4. Then BOOM CITY. You're lagfix'd
Will that work?

It's my understanding that as long as the kernel your flashing is rooted, and and has CWM included (almost all have both "out of the box") you can flash straight from stock 2e recovery as long as the file is named "update.zip" first.
I know Supercurio made a Voodoo kernel for stock KB1 2.2- if you intend to run the stock firmware I'd make sure the kernel is 100% compatible.

I am out of my element when talking about stock 2.2, however, I thought that the recovery included with 2.2, or one upgraded to 2.2, would be digitally signed. Or whatever. I don't think you can do the rename to update.zip.
That sticky mentioned above probably has an extra step for 2.2.

I could be wrong, and it might work, but I don't think it will.
