Counting down the hours until I can actually try anything and see what happens. Do you think it would be worth installing something like Cyanogenmod 7? From what I've read on this thread
, it looks like Cyanogen 7 is compatible with the free version of Voodoo Sound.
Cyanogenmod is great. Tons of cool features and yes, the kernel does support voodoo sound. Your device is officially suported by cyanogenmod. I would advice you to only try out only the "stable builds". The official page is here
. and the install guide they've provided here
is detailed enough.
One thing to be weary about is choosing the right radio(in case the default one doesn't work). They have a list of radios on the main page.
PS: On the page you linked they have this

Q: Do I really need to be on Froyo to install this ROM?
Q: I'm already on Gingerbread from Samsung, why do I have to downgrade before installing?
A: Samsung included new bootloaders in the Gingerbread updates that are incompatible with CyanogenMod 7. They break a number of things including, but not limited to, graphical distortion at boot time and broken external SD card. To fix this would require reworking the entire kernel to be based off of Samsung's code drop instead of the far more open (and better written) Nexus S source code. If you don't like it, complain to Samsung for introducing new bootloaders.
And on the guide says this "The install guide assumes the Samsung Captivate already has Android 2.3 build UCKK4 (AT&T) or UXKH2 (Rogers) installed on it.
My guess : Maybe the issue is with cm7 and not cm9, cm10, cm10.1 which most people will install. Or maybe they've fixed the issue since that was written. You may have to comb the thread or hit the IRC to confirm. This
guy had to downgrade to install cm7.1
It's also possible that stock 2.3 is now required for the install.
Cyanogenmod have sound enhancements in the form of DSP. But i believe it shuts down once voodoo sound is installed, so that shouldn't be an issue.
