    Re-flash the voodoo kernal, boot up, disable voodoo, flash normal kernal, forget voodoo ever existed because it sucks anyway.

    Does a factory reset do anything for you? That's probably about all you can really do from stock recovery anyway.

    Yea. You need to convert the file system back to the stock file system type; which I believe has to be done while the voodoo kernel. I was going to check out those links and point out what exactly you should probably do but I'm still banned from xda lol.

    If something has replaced the custom recovery image with stock then you're probably out of luck.

    A tech in the store might be able to flash the stock software back onto your device. I don't know how it works with Samsung phones, though. There may not be an uber recovery device like with the HTC and Motorola devices.
