Default [KERNEL][I9000] Voodoo Galaxy S Gingerbread Kernel - JVY/JVZ/JW1/JW4/JW5/JW6/JW7/JW8

Supercurio indicated he wished to concentrate on other projects he's been working on and so I have his approval to continue maintaining the Gingerbread kernels he started initially in this thread.

These are stock kernels with hacks and is not a kernel rebuilt from sources at this stage. Tested flashing from stock ROM/stock kernel only.

A change log can be found in the FAQ section (post #2).

PLEASE READ THE FAQ SECTION IN POST #2 BEFORE POSTING A QUESTION.

Features:

- Voodoo Lagfix
- su binary installed in /system/xbin
- Chainfire's SuperSU v0.98 installed in /data/app
- Clockworkmod Recovery 5.0.2.6 with Voodoo Lagfix menu
- CIFS support, loadable with insmod
- Tuned low memory killer
- adb in recovery mode
- adb running as root by default
- busybox 1.18.5 installed in /bin
- tun.ko support built in by Samsung
- Optional zip align script for /system/app and /data/app
- 364MB RAM for XXJW4, XWJW5, XWJW6, DVJW1, XWJW7 and XWJW8 builds

Models Supported:

I9000 - Supported
I9000T - Supported
I9000M - Supported

Frequently Asked Questions

The kernel build for my stock ROM isn't listed, which one do I use?

Use the build that is the closest match to your current build. If you look at the kernel version in Settings -> About Phone you will see a number after the letters 'CL' eg. CL123456. This is a change list version number.

Use this number to find the closest matching build using the lists below, without going outside your Android version. That means if your Android version is 2.3.3, ignore all the 2.3.4 and 2.3.5 kernels. If your Android version is 2.3.4, ignore all the 2.3.3 and 2.3.5 kernels. Lists for European and Australian builds can be found below to make it easier to determine which build you should use.

Example: Android version 2.3.3, change list number CL380123. The closest match would be the XWJVN kernel.

How do I enable or disable Voodoo Lagfix?

Method 1: To control the status of lagfix, download Voodoo Control Plus.

Method 2: Use Recovery mode to disable and enable Voodoo Lagfix.

Method 3: On your internal sdcard is a folder called "Voodoo". Inside this folder, create a blank file called "enable-lagfix" to enable lagfix. Create a blank file called "disable lagfix" to disable lagfix.

I want to stay on the RFS filesystem with the Voodoo kernel, how do I do this?

Create a folder on your internal sdcard called "Voodoo" then create a blank file called "disable lagfix" inside this folder BEFORE flashing the kernel.

How do I obtain root with this kernel?

The su binary is already included and Superuser.apk is pre-installed. You don't need to install anything extra.

Root is also available by default for adb and in recovery mode also.

Is there Voodoo Color in this kernel?

Voodoo Color is not available in this kernel as Voodoo Color requires the kernel to be built from sources.

Is there Voodoo Sound in this kernel?

Voodoo Sound is not directly included, however Voodoo Sound can be added by installing Voodoo Control Plus. If you wish to use PayPal you can grab it from YAAM.

By purchasing Voodoo Control Plus you are supporting supercurio's brilliant work.

How do I make use of the CIFS support?

To use CIFS, install CIFS Manager.

Open CIFS Manager and go to Settings.

Tick Load CIFS Module
Tick Load via insmod
Tap on Path to cifs.ko and enter exactly the following:

/lib/modules/slow-work.ko:/lib/modules/cifs.ko

Exit the app and re-open it. You can start adding your shares.

How do I make use of the app zip aligner?

You need to be running at least version 1.1 of the Voodoo kernel.

On your internal sdcard is a folder called "Voodoo". Inside this folder, create a blank files accordingly:

"enable-zipalign-system" to enable zipalign on next boot for /system/app
"enable-zipalign-data" to enable zipalign on next boot for /data/app

These files are automatically removed by the zipalign script once the script has finished running so that it does not run on every boot, which would result in a slow boot for users with a large number of apps.

What are the MD5 hashes for and how do I check my download against the provided hash?

Download and install HashTab which is a shell extension that will tell you the hash of a file. Simply right click the file, go to Properties and then the File Hashes tab.

I'm coming from another custom kernel. Are there any catches I need to be aware of?

The general rule is, if you have any other lagfixes enabled, you need to disable them first before flashing the Voodoo kernel.

What are the limitations of the nandroid backup/restore functionality in CWM?

- Do NOT restore nandroid backups created using CWM 2.x, 3.x or 4.x. The format is different.
- You MUST disable Voodoo Lagfix (convert back to rfs filesystem) before creating a nandroid backup or restoring a nandroid backup. Do NOT backup/restore with lagfix on.
- Nandroid backups of the /system partition where the backed up partition had less than 15MB of free space will not restore completely, due to the way the rfs filesystem works. This should only affect restoring a backup of a stock ROM.

I would suspect there is an incompatibility here - these kernels have been tested on stock ROMs coming from stock kernels.

Are you able to get into CWM? If you can, use adb to pull the /voodoo/logs folder, zip it up and attach it to your post so I can take a look into it.

Do you have anything in /system/etc/init.d ?

Edit: re-download the kernel, I fixed something very minor

JFS isn't all that popular- I may look at it later down the track but for the time being this is strictly a continuation of supercurio's work.

Revert back to RFS filesystem before flashing to this kernel. This is working on my personalised odexed and deodexed roms.

Yes I could go to CWM, and I dont have init.d folder at all
Now it's ok
Could you add voodoo color so that user can calibrate color, thanks.
It's buttery smooth, on pair with Semaphore kernel.
