This kernel is based on the original Bali Kernel for Vibrant 3G. I'm not into OC/UV and will try to keep this as close to stock as possible but with balanced performance and good battery life.

- BLN (download BLN app from market to enable it)
- Built in voodoo "red" cwm [3.0]
- Voodoo lagfix [3.0]
- Voodoo sound v9 (download voodoo app or voodoo plus from market)
- Adjusted HZ value to improve smoothness
- no FPS cap
- TinyRCU for better speed and efficiency
- lowmemorykiller patch for compatibility with Tiny RCU
- ext4 patch
- jhash3 for smoothness and responsiveness
- BFQ I/O scheduler to improve I/O throughput
- TUN (VPN support) [1.1]
- CIFS (Samba support) [1.1]
- Added UV version, -25UV across all freq [UV version only]

NOTE: this kernel will work with any 2.2.x based ROM. Also if your screen flickers ... please let me know and I'll release the capped version.

If you still have BLN issue, install a fix by chadster214. (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=13832654&postcount=25) .. Thanks Chadster214

supercurio - for wonderful work on voodoo

DISCLAIMER:

As always, I'm not responsible with any damage cause to your phone.

INSTALL INSTRUCTION:
1. Upload kernel to your sdcard
2. Reboot to CWM
3. Flash the kernel using CWM

VOODOO INSTALLATION
1. Follow the above instruction to flash the kernel, then reboot your phone.
2. First boot will auto convert your /data, /cache, and /system from RFS filesystem to EXT4. You will hear female voice (linda) during conversion process.
3. Once your phone is boot up, check using voodoo control app or 'adb shell mount' command .. to make sure all three partition (/data,/cache,and /system) are using ext4.
4. You can manage voodoo lagfix from either CWM or Voodoo Control App.

NOTE FOR KD1 based ROM users:
There is a possibility your /system partition doesn't get converted to ext4 due to dirty /system partition from the original KD1 stock ROM. If this happen, please follow the instruction below:

- Download rfs_format.zip and upload it to your /sdcard
- Reboot to recovery
- Do full backup
- Flash rfs_format.zip
- Do full restore
- Reboot
- Voodoo will do its conversion process again on boot

NONE .. everything should be functional

Just flashed. My first time ever using CWM to flash something. Went smoothly, no problems!

Booted up fine at least. ;)

And voodoo sound control app loads up and works fine, indicates v8 like it should.

Thanks OP!!

Thank You drhonk! Just donated. If you are at all able to, I hope you will. We need to support what few dev's we have. It's totally understood if you can't... but if you can, thank you.

    Bln (pro and free) doesnt seem.to.work for me. Using whitehawks kd5 deoxed.

    Sent from my SGH-T959 using XDA Premium App

    unzip and push this file to this directory \system\lib\hw

    Update with BLN fixes and more tweaks is posted. This kernel is now 99% identical with its vibrant 3G version minus the voodoo lagfix. If you guys don't see any battery life improvement, download battery calibration app from the market and follow its instruction to calibrate your battery. In some cases, it takes 2 -3 days for your ROM to adjust ..

    Enjoy!

    This is just an initial release guys ... I didn't have time to add all of Bali's tweaks, so expect another release tonight or tomorrow. :)
