    Anybody have experience using Odin to flash roms? Apparently I need to do that to properly flash the voodoo lag fix to my vibrant since I had used a different fix prior. I'm used to flashing zips from recovery but I hadn't been able to get adb going on my win 7 machine to use terminal commands. Nor am I well versed in that. Any assistance or knowledge dropping would be appreciated.

    don't use Voodoo


    Download "RyanZA's OCLF 2.0" from the market

    it has a couple of lagfixes that don't involve messing with EXT4 (which voodoo does) and you can't brick your phone doing it.

    Stay away from Odin unless you absolutely have to....some Vibrants are hardware key locked from getting into the bootloader/download mode too, so you could run into issues if Odin freezes on you (which it seems to do a lot).

      I see, I actually was using his version like 1.2 or something, didn't see it had been updated. That's good news tho. I'll check into it, thanks for the heads up.

        why do you want to use the Voodoo fix?

        I personally never had a ton of lag without any fixes....the ryanza 2.0 fix in the market version is more than adequate though


        I understand the need to want to use the voodoo fix, but it's really unnecessary and unsafe if you don't even know your way around ADB

          Well I had just read that it completely replaced the RFS system Samsung uses everywhere, didn't know if OCLF did it everywhere or not... anyway, I just thought that it was a good option from reading xda and such online. As it gets older it gets laggier it seems, and frankly for some reason my google maps has always just been a total piece of shit. I never had to pull the battery on my Nexus and I've done it regularly with the Vibrant, almost exclusively in google maps. It'll just lag out so bad that it stalls and won't go anywhere.

          I had Ryanza's fix awhile back and had just finally gotten some new roms flashed on the thing and supposedly the Bionix 1.3 rom came with Voodoo, but it wouldn't run on mine as a result of having the previous lag fix installed, but not removed by flashing the other roms.

          Upon trying OCLF 2.0, I couldn't install it because of everything else I'd gotten previously, so I ended up having to use Odin to flash back to o.g. stock anyway... guess we will start it all over again
