My question is, I have S7500T.

To flash custom ROMS I have been replacing the boot.img with my phones original and it works no problem..

I've tried flashing cyanogen mod but only get blank screen, I'm assuming the only way to get it working on the S7500T is if official update ever comes out and I once again use stock boot.img, or is there another way?

Please don't try Gingerbread boot.img in CM10. You will SUPER HARD BRICK your device. You will have to wait for Official Release and no other method is there for making it work. And CM10 requires CM10 kernel only.

Re: [IMP]FAQ's All ROMS, MODS
One question is, why isn't it possible to simply restore a nandroid GB backup over CM10? Why is it that only a zip should be flashed? Both nandroid backup and flashable zip have the GB kernel after all..
I tried to do that, but only got an error. Thankfully I had an inspiration ROM zip and I flashed it over CM10.
