Never tried disabling it. Not sure why you'd want to.

What mounts?

Here's what I did:
Superoneclick root the device
Load modified recovery file with super manager
Put CWM update.zip in sd card
Restart into CWM
Flash modem and this rom
Restart then it TALKS TO ME!

I did this TWICE, amazing rom, wish I could get it to work
Mounts are parts of the system that need to be written to, and so must be set as mount or unmount depending on the value.

Code:
Instructions - NOTHING NEW, if you know the drill then go ahead and install.

- Put zip file in your /sdcard
- Reboot into cwm recovery
- Wipe Data/Factory Reset
- Wipe Cache Partition
(Optional but recommended to prevent any minor issues)-Wipe Dalvik Cache from advanced menu in CWM

    *Now before you Flash, Only if you are on the orange CWM, (Not RED voodoo CWM from Bali) if on red CWM ignore the mounts/unmount part*
    MAKE SURE YOUR MOUNTS LOOK LIKE THIS: (Go to mounts and storage from CWM recovery)

    UNMOUNT CACHE
    MOUNT DATA
    MOUNT SDCARD
    UNMOUNT SYSTEM - this is the ONLY mount you pay mind to, not Sdcard or anything else

- Now its safe to Flash the .zip
Above was taken from ayoteddy's thread.

yeah, disabling the lagfix doesn't seem to work. I did do it successfully way back on KD1 or something.

I haven't been running the lagfix just because I am wondering if ext4 tends to be a bit more glitchy on this device. that's definitely not for sure, but it's a theory of mine. like sometimes my notification sounds wouldn't ring, or I would reboot to a flurry of force closes(on most of the KG2 custom ROMs). stock RFS file system seems more stable, to me anyway.

ah yeah, I loved the G2 a lot. the lagfix, or voodoo, I believe is just the conversion on Samsung phones from the stock file system over to ext4, which seems to be snappier. it isn't as big a deal on HTC phones, because they seem to ship with say, ext3, so going to ext4 is easy.

but Samsung uses it's own proprietary file system, RFS, which some people say sucks, lol, but I think they've improved it quite a bit. but I believe all the SK4G custom ROMs use the conversion to ext4.

Trust us as ROM devs...ext4 is snappier. Its the official file system for newest up to date Linux systems. And its open source, so anyone can make it better. RFS is proprietary so its closed off to people who want to make it even better. There should be no point or any part of time that you should feel the need to disable Voodoo Lagfix. If you get weird problems going, you need to clear your cache and dalvik cache partitions, and fix permissions and then reboot.

Yes, it happens all the time, anyone have problems with the camera taking 3 minutes to load, or failing to load?

Not me. Sorry. You could try fixing your permissions in CWM.

Damn, that seems like a pretty heavy issue. If its still doing that even on stock, something is seriously wrong. Is the Sidekick still under warranty?
