bhundven, finally got finished customizing my cm7 install. So far I'm loving it. Even got some custom lockscreens set up.

Thanks for the work, and also huge thanks to Max and hampster.

Of course you did something!

@FBis251 I'm having trouble getting CM7 on my phone so I wasn't able to try out your zip. There are a lot of things involved that I have no experience with so I have a lot more reading/searching to do to get it going. Just wanted to give you a heads-up. Working on installing a Linux VM right now to see if that will make it easier.

EDIT

Removed. The CWM zips aren't ready for prime time yet apparently. I'll post them once I have verified a good, working method.

It ain't isn't not no working yet!!! Don't flash them. I went into a reboot to recovery loop. I think I know how to fix it, but I'll repost everything once I make sure it works 100% of the time.

Okay, finally got around to making the CWM zips for making the installs easier on the users.
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Download both zip files, plus the latest update.zip and boot.img from the downloads post on this thread
  2. Transfer all 3 zips to your phone
  3. Reboot to recovery (RED CWM)
  4. Do a nandroid backup of your current ROM
  5. Flash cm7-efs-backup.zip
  6. Put your phone into download mode
  7. Flash the latest boot.img from bryan's OP using HEIMDALL
  8. You should now be in the BLUE CWM menu
  9. Do a factory reset (Main Menu > wipe data/factory reset, you might get a format volume error. It's normal, continue)
  10. Format and mount /system (Main Menu > format /system & mount /system)
  11. Flash cm7-efs-restore.zip
  12. Flash the cm7 rom zip you downloaded, and the gapps zip if you want
  13. Reboot and enjoy CM7.

DOWNLOADS
cm7-efs-backup.zip
cm7-efs-restore.zip

EXPLANATION
The problem was that the phone won't like it if you flash the kernel via CWM, so you have to do it via heimdall or it won't work for you.
For the curious ones. I just made a few scripts that get run through CWM that do a lot of the steps in Bryan's OP for you. It'll do all the efs backup and restore for you, which will make flashing CM7 a little more trivial

Where's the link to the gapps? The OP says it's at the bottom of the first page but I don't see them.
