I too am "frantically patiently waiting" and would also like to show some appreciation for making my phone more enjoyable. Thanks guys, I really mean it!

And if it takes a donation to somebody's beer fund to get lagfix kernel then so be it. More than happy to oblige.

Is this the kernel source?
Yup. Those that would know what to do with it already have it. There's not a lot of kernel devs left that support this phone or the fascinate. It could be a while before you see anything TW based.

Hopefully we'll see something soon, I miss my voodoo kernel features. I am torn between starting or going back to froyo. The interface is so much better in GB but the lagfix, voodoo sound and bln are big for me.

I am with you. I want to upgrade to gb but don't want to lose the same voodoo goodness. Not big on roms though I see the appeal, I just need something completely reliable (sans the bugs) for my work needs. I prefer to root and debloat myself. I know the devs that are left have moved on to bigger and better things, but at the same time there are many of us looking for something as menial as a tw voodoo kernel. The work on heinz and the others is awesome, don't get me wrong, just hoping to be thrown a bone (or kernel to be specific).

Does anybody know if JT is even working on a GB voodoo kernel?
Not that I'm aware of and considering he's developing CM7 for a number of devices I doubt he plans on it anytime soon, if at all. Obviously, I can't speak for him though.

Saw JT posted and for a brief moment thought we had our voodoo back, but no joy. Patience is a virtue or so they say, glad to hear people are on it though.

I'm very thankful our phones get any attention by these talented folks. Personally, I think it's great we have as many choices as we have

A) Very nice Voodoo'd Froyo ROMs (still remember the first time I got myself the Voodoo it was like upgrading)
Just no Gingerbread (and no future updates)

B) MTD CM7/MIUI/AOSP Roms
Fast, lean and mean - just with a few missing features and minor bugs
Impressive and flexible - only thing missing is some bug squashing

C) TW Gingerbread ROMS
No frills no thrills - stock performance, but stuff works. Only missing the voodoo to be fantastic.

At this point I'm most interested in B and just jumped back to PWGB as I was getting a bit obsessive in trying new kernels, releases and configurations. Very excited that Pool Party may get the TW camera working. I think that would be my perfect and ultimate ROM. As soon as I hear things are working smooth I'll be very motivated to give it a go. I only wish I had the skills to be on the other side of the screen, but for now I'll play my role as the whiny fan-boy who can't be happy with the juicy steak I'm being served.
