What is the process for updating....
I currently, have KA7+Voodoo running and since I'm a noob not sure what the upgrade process is to upgrade to the latest KB1+Voodoo?

If the kernel dev does not say anything about the update process, you are supposed to flash the new kernel.

Btw: new version available:

v1.5.6:
added: java implementation of tar
added: proper detection of supported flashtypes (only bml, at the moment)
added: more detailed error messages

And there is another version available:

v1.5.9:
added: Auto-reboot text clickable
added: flash verify
added: more error messages
fixed: bml blocksize detection on eclair

The 1.5.6 did not work on eclair - please update to 1.5.9.

Hi there.

Just downloaded this app, but wanted to be certain:

As you'll see with my specs in my sig, I've got Speedmod Kernel 13a and lagfix enabled, on Doc's Rom.

If I wanted to flash another kernel - maybe voodoo - I don't really know:
Would I have to disable the lagfix first and then flash the new kernel?

I've read the entire thread and have come across posts saying that it's not necessary to disable lagfixes, others say the converse.

So I'd appreciate some clarity on the matter please.

Please excuse the noobile question - still relatively new to all the tweaking and flashing

if you want to flash a kernel from an other family then you should disable all lagfix and tweaks. if you use kernel from the same family you do not often have to disable lagfix or tweaks.
the best is to ask in the tread on the kernel you wish to use.

If you're going to flash a kernel which can also read & write ext4, you're safe. So if you want to move from speedmod to voodoo, or vice versa, there is no need to undo lagfix first. But if you want to revert to the original kernel for example, which can NOT read ext4, ext3, ext2 or jfs, then you need to undo the lagfix first and restore the rfs filesystem. If you accidentally mess up, you can always use odin to flash back your previous kernel (make sure you can access download mode). Hope this is helpful.

Absolutly the best! Thank you for making kernel backing up and updating (on the fly) easy and convenient.

One request: when backing up a kernel, could you add a txtbox for the option of naming the backup file instead of just saving it as a date format?
