Like you, 6 months ago, I hackes my PS51D550 and tried to copy various settings, my PQ was always un satisfactory.
For example, with warm2 settings, my white were clearly too yellow.
Now I have a meter and my results are completely differents for others here, each panel is really different.
Here are my settings for example for my dark theater room, if you want to try :
Cell light 10
black tone off
flesh tone 0
edge enhance off
motion lighting off
color tone warm2
digital noise off
mpeg noise off
You can see on my panel, there was too much blue in my white balance, with this settings, my white is nearly perfect, using warm2 to have the correct temp
So without a meter, IMHO the D7000 hack is useless.
But without it, you can achieve a good results by eye, using a 10 steps pattern from black to white for example.
You can use the wonderfull AVS709 HD for that, brightness and contrast settings
