Yes. There used to be separate zips for defy(+) and bravo -- now it's one zip.

Defy is my "daily driver" with CM7 but since this guide was posted in May I am very tempted to try CM11 as performance is lagging compared to the dual core 1.2ghz phones I've tried.

How has stability faired since then? Hoping all my apps can just backup and restore and still run.

Thanks for the amazing guide.

I found my Defy hanging in a drawer this weekend and it was still running CM7.

Thanks to your guide I've updated it to SlimKat and I'm happy to say that performance is pretty solid so far.

Resize partition?

I've followed the instructions to the letter, and when I get to installing CM11 I get:
Please resize partition before installing CM11
Then it fails to install.

Any ideas?
