Ext2 Z4mod on Obsidian V2 Tested and working.
Here are the Steps I took to convert the data folder to ext 2. I'm sure we can do more folders but I'm unable to write (anyone?) the update scripts.
Note: When I tryed to use the ext2 update zip file without renaming to update.zip it did not work. I continuously recieved SD mount errors.
- Start with a fresh install of Team Whiskey's Rom
- Goto to the I9000 thread and follow the instruction on uploading a kernel to be repacked.
- I selected all the check marks before re packing and downloaded the new kernel.
- Download the ext2 update zip from the thread. Rename the zip file to update.zip.
- Grab the kernel(tar file) you downloaded from the site and use odin to install.
- After booting back up rename the z4mod.ext2.update zip file to update.zip.
- Reboot into clockwork and apply update.zip
- After booting back up your data file should now be ext2.
- To check use terminal emulator our adb and type mount. The data line should now say ext2 instead of rfs.
I can't stress enough to read the topic in the I9000 development thread titled z4mod breaking free from rfs(link below) so you understand what you are doing and the process that is required.
My instruction does not detail that whole process. I'm not responsible for you or what you do by following this brief instruction.
Very Snappy after this mod. Absolutely no issues for me.

Files I used to get this to work.
(The Zimage I used to repack was taken out of Obsidian V2. (DO NOT USE THIS FOR IMAGE FOR ANY OTHER ROM THAN OBSIDIAN V2)
Also, XDA does not allow uploads of tar files so I compressed the tar into a zip format. Make sure you extract this file and use the .tar file within Odin.
- This file was downloaded from the I9000 Z4Mod Thread entitled z4mod.ext2.update.zip. All I did was renamed to update.zip which for some reason allows this conversion process to take place.
