This has been updated to be deodexed+root+busybox only (though it still supports JAC kernel out of the box). At this point there are so many different lag fixes that it's hard to keep up with them all.
What it does have:
ROOT
No .odex files (deodexed)
Newest Busybox
ext manipulation files and libs, so it makes it easier to e2fsck or tune2fsck if you want ext4.

Also thanks to eugene373 for his work in establishing a baseline update.zip without which this would have taken a great deal more work.

Should work in clockwork, doesn't seem to need a wipe. If you have problems, use regular recovery, just rename it to "update.zip" on the root of your sdcard and it should flash just fine.

WARNING:
This should be completely safe. Nonetheless, should loss of job/loss of fertility/nuclear war ensue, I am not responsible.

Instructions:
1. Load the .zip file onto the root of your internal SD card (/sdcard)

2. Using Clockwork recovery, do "Install zip from SD card", then "Choose zip from sdcard", choose the VibrantDeodexed.zip, and choose "Yes"

2b.(ONLY If you don't have Clockwork) rename the download to "update.zip" and place it on the root of your sdcard. Then reboot into recovery and choose "Update packages".

3. (Optional) Flash JAC's kernel with ODIN using the directions specified HERE It is more stable and gets better benchmarks but there do seem to be some issues with the screen taking a while to wake up.

NOTE: The first boot takes a long time because it has to dexopt stuff.

Version 1.0:
Just stock and rooted w/busybox

Version 1.1:
Uses the latest version of busybox and comes with support for JAC kernel out of the box (no need to flash the init.d update.zip and supersedes my method if his kernel is flashed.)

Version 1.2:
Updated busybox, added ext tools. Removed all lag fixes, though it will still work with the JAC kernels.
There are so many lag fixes out there at the moment that I didn't want to "lock in" people to a particular one.

Part of the high quadrant score is the 90 million triangles/sec. The data script boosts the data score.

the ext hack puts the data and dalvik cache on the sdcard on an ext2/3 partition...

it brought my quadrant score from 850-950 up to 1400-1500

its like apps2sd but the apps part is still on the phones internal memory...
original link is here for the hack--http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=739647

anomalous, thanks for all your hard work...
so if we get a good deodexed rom, someone could compile JIT for our 2.1 right?

why does the phone run faster with the data stored externaly? or is it because of the partition type?

im not quite sure, I would have figured our internal mem had a faster transfer rate than an sdcard, but Im on a class 2 and still getting better results... so it cant be a faster transfer rate...

@freedom: put simply, EXT formats run way faster than Fat32, which is what the rest of the storage is.
wiki: EXT3 (common format) and ext4 (latest)
edit: better explanation here

However, I'd most love to see either one of the internal storage (app storage or the other internal) finding a way to be put into EXT3, as that would probably run better than any sdcard.

Just so everyone Knows, the Format via the update script don't work, still trying to find the correct command for it....

But, in clockworkmod, just format the system / data / cache partition's before flashing.

Er, the internal storage is "rfs", samsung's proprietary fs. (And the read/write speed of fat32 tends to be a little faster than ext2, and TONS faster than ext3/4 - journals slow it down in exchange for stability after crashes)

The increase in speed is just that - faster underlying hardware. The onboard "sd card" (same "disk" that /data is partitioned out of) is heartbreakingly slow.
