That's going to depend on how much customizing you've done to your phone.
It's easier to take the OTAs to go from ME7 to MI1 then from MI1 to MJ7, as you don't need to hassle with ODIN.
If the phone has been modified, you may not be able to use the OTAs. In that case, flashing the no-wipe MJ7 will get you to where you need to go with less hassle.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.
VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
