I am using the latest update (update-kernel-system-cm-7.2.0-RC5.5 ; update-second-kernel-system-cm-7.2.0-RC5.5) for galaxy mini, and I have created the patch from update-cm-7.2.0-RC5.5-GalaxyMini-Release-signed. I followed the steps above,  but when I execute Pdroid a message indicate that my system is not patched. Please help me to patch it (sorry for my bad English)
