    if your updating from v6 to the new v7 then you boot into recovery do an advanced nandroid backup (make sure everything is checked) then go and do the update.zip method of updating your rom.

    -Place update.zip on the root of sdcard
    -Reboot into recovery
    -Install
    -Allow update.zip installation
    -Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)
    -Enjoy!

    make sure you renamed the the v7 to "update.zip" and put it on the root of your sd card.

    you dont need to do a nandroid restore at all UNLESS you have problems with the v7 in the case you would restore back to a nandroid thats more stable

    i hope that helped
