I wouldnt recommend disabling voodoo on this device. Its a known issue that attempting to convert the partitions back sets the device in a bootloop. I actually tried it myself once, before I knew it was an issue. When I realized it was in a bootloop, I removed and reinserted the battery, booted into recovery and re-enabled voodoo. The device booted normally again after that. I cant say everyone would be that lucky though.

Thank you for the compliment. I am gonna have to humble myself though. The developers are far more experienced than I am. I just know a couple of tricks. A lot more people would know what I know if they simply did some research and some trial and error. Half of what I know, I learned by screwing something up. The other half I was lucky enough to pick up here in the forums. I read somewhere that 40 per cent of all Android devices are returned. A lot of people wont take the time to work on a device and get it running smoothly. For most people, its either returning a device or switching roms till they find one with the least problems, rather than find the problems and eliminate them. i know what most of the problems are with this device, but not every sidekick has all the same problems. so it takes time to test drive the device and track down every single problem. Its really just a matter of taking that time and doing a little homework. Because no matter what you do to this device, I guarantee it will still have problems, unless you know the real source of all the problems.
Strictly for my ninjas
