It seems like the Samsung Galaxy S is notorious for its occasional lag. Various lag fixes are out, but most of them require me to root my phone.

I am reluctant to void the warranty on my phone, so I would like to avoid rooting it if possible.

Are there any lag fixes out there that don't require me to root the phone?

You can lagfix without rooting by flashing a kernel like Voodoo through Odin.


This will void your warranty anyways.

If it helps, the SGS phones are very easy to unroot and revert to stock to hide what you did.

  • So the question should be if there are any lagfixes out that won't void my warranty, right? Jun 24, 2011 at 19:37
  • @Nathan Anything that goes beyond what is possible for regular non-root apps voids your warranty, in most cases. And I doubt a regular app can do a real lagfix. The problem on the SGS is the filesystem; changing that is pretty heavy-duty. Jun 24, 2011 at 19:59
