Hi,

I finally gave in and flash a new kernel last weekend in order to get an ext4 filesystem. Having a i9000m model plagued with the motherboard/sd card failure back in December, it took me some time before deciding to do some mod. For exemple, I rooted my phone only 2 weeks ago more than 7 months after I bought it. While when I had my HTC Touch, I flash my first ROM within the first week.

I'm fine with stock at the moment, however, I did wanted to upgrade my Kernel to something better with which I could implement an ext4 filesystem. I flashed SpeedMod K13e last friday, implemented the new filesystem and enjoy the new speed my phone was giving me.

My question to you, because I upgraded my filesystem to ext4, will I have to revert back to RFS when android gingerbread will be available through Kies before I upgrade?

Thanks

Absolutely, since the update will overwrite your kernel with the stock GB kernel which will not support Ext4.

Kies should recognize your phone and provide an update with the lagfix and kernel in place as long as the PDA/Modem and CSC are what it expect to see (that is, stock for your carrier). However, before updating, go into recovery and disable lagfix.

As "rschenck" said, you have no other choice but to disable lagfix before going to stock 2.3.3. That's because Samsung's stock kernel does not support ext4, as a file system. The only way to have ext4 is by having a kernel that supports this format. So, go back to RFS, flash stock GB, then replace its kernel with one supporting ext4.
