Thanks for the help with headphones. Happy to wait for your report NZTF.

Not for exercise. Just me and my thoughts on those long hours.

More than you want to know but relevant. The opening to my ears is small & most ear bud types are too big & won't stay in. I do have a Sony pair of ear buds with the loop over the ear. They are the best I've found so far (but still occassionally the buds fall out). Thanks.

If running 2.2 Voodoo is still the best lag fix.

If running 2.2 on Doc rom they seem to recommend a non voodoo lagfix.  However they don't seem to specifically compare No-RFS Advanced ext4 'vs' the non built in voodoo lagfix.

11. After the phone boots up, shutdown phone again, and then boot into recovery. The phone will boot DIRECTLY into Clockworkmod. From there, select "advanced ULK features", then "Lagfix options". You can select any of the lagfix schemes (description here). I recommend NO-RFS advanced EXT4 (others are known to have issues and may cause loss of data)

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=8789391&postcount=3


There are also 8 included pre-defined schemes:

* OCLF: /data stays at rfs, but has an ext2 loop device on top of it
* Voodoo: /data is ext4, all others are kept at rfs
* JFS Voodoo: /data is jfs, all others are still rfs
* No-RFS Standard: /data is rfs+ext2, all other partitions are ext4
* No-RFS Advanced: all partitions are ext4
* No-RFS Advanced JFS: all partitions are jfs
* No-RFS Overkill: turns on all options: everything is ext4+ext2 and /data/data is bound to /dbdata
* No-RFS Overkill JFS: turns on all options: everything is jfs+ext2 and /data/data is bound to /dbdata

(If using the overkill scheme using the bind option is dangerous if using too much apps, so you should disable it in the advanced menu.)

Although I used the names OCLF and Voodoo, the ROM is not compatible with any of them, it's just a naming convention I used. Hope RyanZA and supercurio won't mind

Which one should I use?
You decide. OCLF or Voodoo might seem simple but they are actually working great (but for those you can actually use the originals, they are probably much more stable), while NO-RFS Overkill might seem cool, it is clearly an overkill.

The benefit of the speedmod kernel (one in the Doc_Kalpik rom) is that it also has a tonne of other tweaks to go along with the array of lag fix choices.

the speedmod kernel has:
-CWM and 2e recovery compatibility
-bunch of io and speed tweaks
-like 8 different lagfix options
-Backlight Notifications
-341mb ram vs 306mb
-choice of hz value (affects battery life vs smooth performance)
-compiled with optimised flags
-sharpness and colour fix

kiwijunglist:

Froyo 2.2 is available via kies for most but not all versions of the i9000.  It depends on the country / registration code of the device.  Your phone should hopefully eventually also have the option to update to 2.2 over the air (OTA) (eg. update sent directly from telecom to your phone without using the PC).  I would advice you to install kies on to your PC and then plug in your phone to see if an update is available.  It will either say "update available" or "your phone is running latest firmware".

i9000T is i9000 from telecom right?  I don't know if this version has update via kies to froyo 2.2 yet.  Connect the phone with kies and findout.

If it's not available officially (kies / OTA update) you can flash ("hack") the device using odin to get 2.2 onto your phone earlier, which will void your warranty. People running "custom roms" or with "roooted/root access phones" have hacked their device.

2.2 fixes some issues, and helps with the lag but doesn't eliminate the lag.  To eliminate the lag you need to install a lagfix, if running 2.1 voodoo is the best lagfix (this will void your warranty)


Cool thanks heaps for the comprehensive explanation. Yes I was referring to the Telecom version (didn't realise there were different versions). So just to clarify, in order to find out whether or not the update is available via Kies/OTA, you have to connect your phone to the PC? (so you have to have the phone). You can't just download and install Kies on your PC and "browse" for applications?

It's just that I'm thinking of holding off buying one until the official update is available from Telecom.

Cheers.

Same issue with my ears and regular buds.

A lot of peeps dislike the in-ear type buds, although I have no probs with 'em. The standard SGS ones, I use for hands free operation in the car, but I also have a pair of SkullCandy in-ear ones which I prefer when just listening to my music. They were really cheap yet deliver a sound that I find suits me and my musical tastes. Which probably means they would be crap for others, of course.

One thing about in-ear type buds is that they don't fall out easily and definitely attenuate ambient noise. Laughing

Cheers,

I should stop flashing new kernels and different modems. My phone wouldn't reboot after a battery change at work today - forgot that I flashed the JPM modem and the K series of speedmod kernel last night :/

The telecom model doesn't have 2.2 yet, I just picked one up a couple days ago.

Use appbrain.com

Use your Gmail account to login. Others might share their app list. Just to give an idea of what are some of the most popular apps.

Def get Titanium backup, APN backup, astro (file manager app). I'll see if I can grab my list. Currently on mobile data making such things a bit more tiresome ;)

I'm not entirely sure although I did flash a different kernel last night and a different modem (of which the file may have been corrupt). It could also have been because I drained the battery to 2% before turning it off as I was downloading a podcast over terrible Edge reception (which killed the battery more)

 I managed to restore from a 2 day old backup so not much lost. I'm now backup up after each successful change. I'm also trying EXT4 instead of JFS for a bit.
