Forum member SteveS cooked up a custom kernel and ROM for the European version of the Galaxy S Wifi 4.0. Note that this won’t work on the American or Korean version of the Galaxy (yet), nor on the Galaxy S Wifi 5.0.
Besides gaining root/superuser access to the device and various interface tweaks, this ROM includes the Voodoo sound patch, effectively fixing Samsung’s botched audio output. Voodoo fixes the amplification gain for less background hiss and louder output, and – similar to Cowon players – adds a hardware parametric EQ and a hardware 3D spatialization effect for the Wolfson audio CODEC as well.
- Based on Original XXKPQ Kernel
- Added Voodoo sound patches
- Can work with XXKPN and XXKPQ stock Samsung ROM.
- To use Voodoo sound you need to install Voodoo Control or Voodoo Control Plus
- Contains the latest STeVE’s Kernel 1.0: you don’t need to flash separately
- Based on original XXKPQ Samsung stock ROM
- Contains root and superuser permissions
- Tweaked theme: Honeycomb status bar icons, transparent notification pane, ICS windows effects
- CRT screen off animation
- If you start from a XXKPN or XXKPQ you can skip wipe to keep your existing applications and settings
