Took the voodoo plunge...

Well I finally did it last night. I had tried many ROM/kernel combinations to get the best performance with the longest battery life. I love the looks of the Super Dark DJ05 ROM but I couldn't get a kernel to go with it to give me great battery life. I'd take it off charge about 6:30 am and it would get down to 30% usually by 12:00. I have been rooted for about a month and have been reading about voodoo alot. I finally downloaded a StupidFast voodoo kernel. It went perfectly and the battery life seems to be better. My question is should I run SetCPU and if so what settings should I try? Any other kernels I should try also? Can I just flash a new voodoo kernel over the current one? I've read that you can and I've read you've got to disable the lagfix before reflashing a kernel.

you can flash any voodoo kernel over a voodoo kernel. if you flash a non-voodoo kernel over a voodoo kernel, you're asking for trouble.

as for setcpu, I've been running it under conservative and 200mhz min and 1ghz max

I have found a combination for my phone, may not work on all phones. I am rooted, running voodoo, running jt's 1134 voodoo kernel on the Super Dark ROM. I was looking for performance with long bettery life. I flashed the kernel about 5 hours ago and I had 62% battery. Now I'm only down to 48% after internet, recording video at a birthday party, and a few calls. That's much better than any other setup, voodoo or not. I'm also running SetCPU set at 1000/200 with screen off profile set at 400/200 to hopefully save bettery life when it's asleep. FWIW it's scoring 1688 quadrant. What does everyone think? Thanks for the insight.
