cm7.2.0-RC0-Epic-WiMAX-signed.zip??? Wondering if I'm downloading the correct one.

Edit: Nevermind, lol.

Well you got to be careful because the updater-script in cm7 only copies the system folder and not mount or copy the data folder, I have a meta-inf folder that copies and mounts data, if you want to included it

IMO roms shouldn't use data...

Is the download fix script named "06mountdl" or is it "download fix script". Cant seem to find anything named download fix script in cm_epicmtd_full-6.
Or am I just wayyyy off the mark here?

Marcusant, you know, you never have to unzip a rom. You can drag and drop files from other roms, edit them by double clicking and saving and then confirming the save thru the extractor and delete them with the delete button. Also, you need to add all the scripts from cm7 like bmlovermtd and updater.sh and all the other stuff besides /system. And finally, you should probably say to use a TW kernel on a TW ROM and use the CM7 one on any AOSP/MIUI/CM7 ROM.

Certain apps like Maps, Street, Youtube, Voice, etc. are generally stored in System. Through regular updates, they also install a copy to Data, without removing the System copy. I prefer to move them so they only exist in one spot. This way they're also remove-able by the end user.
