    so the question is:

    if i've installed something like gumbo and the flash update for fresh, do i need to then keep those zip files on the sd? or can i take them off and they'll still be active bc they're installed.

    sorry if that's a dumb question but i honestly don't know...

    You can dump them off the card if you want. At least I'm 90% sure you can...:)
    I deleted all the zips from the ROM and tweaks that I added, and don't have any problems.

    once they're installed, you can most certainly remove them from the card. I'd still suggest keeping them in a folder on your computer, just in case you have to re-do it lol

    I keep them on the card in case I want to go back to something else. My card is 16 gb so it's pretty negligible.
