    quick question, are adamZ kernels the same as the ones posted for 7.5 and 7.0??

    because if they are, that would be nice to know.. less d/ling, less bandwidth usage.

    I was just getting the "nerve" to try to do the v7.5 sitting on my computer desktop now this one. Which should I load? Just go straight to v7.8. Same install drop in nandroid folder and load like I did with the DM 1.0? Also, to do the Adamz kernel, do I load v7.8 then go back in and put the kernal in the root (not nandroid) and re-load?
