I am using CM7 now, it is a nice rom, but the battery life is a huge problem.

It seems Vortex is a good candidate, can I flash Vortex directly on CM7 ?

Thanks for the help!

If you are on the unofficial release from rev... Then you can flash...
If you are on the official nightlies... You'll have to sbf first... because the official versions are on the froyo kernel... And vortex is on the ginger kernel

We have nothing to fear but running out of beer

Thanks. I have Cm7 from RevNumbers.

One more questions, do I have to do wipe data? Or just wipe cache, dalvik cache would be enough?

Wipe everything...I usually format data and cache from mounts/storage options in CWR plus a dalvic wipe just to be sure...

sent from my DX running whatever it is I'm running today.

Is this still true? Are the CM Nightlies still on the Froyo kernel? Or can you now (as of writing) flash from CM7 to Vortex?

Thanks.
