    So where is the how-to for applying this kernel? The webpage states that Fascinate and Epic4G builds are not yet available but planned.

    Just download rename to update.zip and install with CW as you normally would. Works perfectly for me.

    no no no no dont ever rename it to update.zip when you root your fascinate and put cw mod on it the update.zip is how you get into cw mod. You dont have to change the name just go into cw mod find the file and install it it will take a while for the changes so be patient if you have any questions write me on gmail lkhafra@gmail.com. The voodoo page wont put it up officily untill beta 5 but the other link still has the file and everyone on xda are freindly and will help you if you need it.

    I just read this thread. I just want to make sure I understand this correctly. I just rooted my phone yesterday because I want to use Orbot. I am having some lag issues and I heard about this lag fix. I'm still on 2.1 and would like to update to 2.2 when it comes out (who knows when). So the question is this, if I install CW and run the voodoo_kernel_0.1.zip to install lagfix, what would I have to do to get the 2.2 update when it finally comes?

    its easy to undo the voodoo kernal as for the 2.2 update I dont know its not out not even a leak. Install the kernal Im telling you i thought it was a lil bs untill I installed it. I have the DX D1 and Fascinate in my house and the Droid phones cant touch the Fascinate right now. I almost forgot to mention think of how it will be when we get 2.2 witgh the voodoo kernal. Ive seen kernals on XDA that overclock to 1.2 ghz and experimental ones up to 1.6 so you know that soon the voodoo kernal should be able to oc too.

    I don't want to get my phone up to a point where I will have all kinds of issues updating it to 2.2! I was trying to hold off rooting my phone until 2.2 comes out but I wanted to use Orbot which requires the phone to be rooted. So I rooted. Now that I'm rooted, I just want to get lagfix and I'll be good til whenever 2.2 arrives for us.

    From what I've read so far, adding the disable-lagfix within the /sdcard/voodoo folder is all I needed. Then do adb shell ">/sdcard/Voodoo/disable-lagfix". Is this all I need to undo lagfix?

    trust me get the voodoo kernal you will be able to get 2.2 easy by removing it thats even if you have to. I promise it will make a big difference with your phone. Theres an app in the market place that will turn it off for you now it doesnt get any easier than that. Oops just looked at the bottom part of your post and the answer is yes with all of the friendly people on Droidforums and XDA nothing is difficult If you run into problems id even give you my Gtalk name or Google Voice number so i could help you.

    New devlopment...

    My phone had been working great the first time I did the voodoo lagfix but after a few days, my phone started to lag and even freeze up badly. Prior to the lagfix, I was running this app called Lookout, its a virus protection/backup/ recovery app. I'm also running an app called Widget Locker which has not given me any ssues whatsoever. I thought that maybe Lookout was causing the phone to be unresponsive when its scanning but it only scans for apps while being installed. During the times when my phone would freeze up badly, Lookout wasn't scanning because I wasn't installing an app. Anyhow, I removed Lookout but the phone would still freeze up the same way. The only way I can get the phone to work snappily again is by rebooting. I don't kill tasks all the time, I just close out of apps that I'm done with and I don't keep over 4 apps running at any given time Any suggestions??

    BTW, I have ran Quadrant several times, at different intervals since the lagfix, I got the following: 1309, 1651, 1532, and 1810!! After my phone had been freezing up badly I get 1810 ts baffling to me
