I agreed Haze. When I went over there and then I saw they said they stop using the t7z support. They said t7z will corrupt the ROM's and too slow to repack. I never had a problem using t7z at all. I don't even repack the whole set unless I have to split the sets up or merge the sets. I still use the t7z.

If they told you guys the size of those zips too big then tell them to blame PD on that.
