    Ok im currently on the jt voodoo lagfix kernel. As of yesterday i keep getting the message to update my phone to EE4 update. If i want to keep voodoo and keep root privleges what options as far as kernels go do i have? Can I simply take the ota then just reflash the voodoo lagfix and still have the ee4 fixes? Or am I better off with a different kernel? What options do i have?

    DO NOT TAKE THE UPDATE UNTIL YOU HAVE DISABLED LAGFIX.

    Even then, I don't think it'll work (it didn't for me). I disabled the lagfix, downgrgaded to stock rooted ed1, accepted the OTA EE4, then applied jt's root/voodoo kernal, the red version of CWM, then peanut butta. I then flashed the sd card fix (which you should put on the sd card before you flash JT's kernel, along with the peanut butta kernel, since SD write is disabled after you root EE4). Everything is working well for me.

    How exactly did you disable lagfix? I've seen info that says you place a file called disable_lagfix in the voodoo folder, which I have done, but gotten no result from that.

    after the folder diasble-lagfix is created in sdcard/voodoo/ Then Reboot your device, it should now start to convert the ext4 back to rfs, be patient, it took me 10 minutes of waiting, also theirs a automated voice over to indicate its working.

    I never heard the automated voice, even during the first voodoo installation.

    to see what file system you have, type mount without quotes in terminal emulator

    I'm clearly doing something wrong- I'm hoping someone has some insight.

    I've placed the "disable-lagfix" folder (without the quotes) in the voodoo directory, restarted the phone, and it boots up completely normal with no changes. The disable-lagfix folder is gone.

    I guess my only question is: is rebooting different than restarting?

    I am running ED2 w/ the voodoo lagfix root. I have not installed CWM, but perhaps I need to? I just want to get the EE4 update and re-voodoo for the root. I've seen DXC's EE4 various package thread and I suspect that's really what I need, but his warning at the beginning is too scary for me. :-)

    First thing, download a terminal emulator, run it, and type mount. See if it saays ext4 for your file type. if not, you don't actually have the lagfix enabled.

    Sorry 'bout that, there is. The 4th line, I think, should list
    /dev/block/stl10 /system

    Right after that, it will tell you what file system your /system is running. It should say ext4 right there:
    /dev/block/stl10 /system ext4 (....a bunch of other stuff)
