right i dunno if anyone can help me here.... i have an ibanez rg7420 7 string and its tuned down a whole step..... i want to take it back up to standard pitch.... should this involve any truss rod adjustments or can this be done simply by adjusting the floyd rose bridge to the correct position??????

No, it shouldn't require any truss rod adjustment at all, just adjust the tension of the trem with the trem claw screws, and change the guage of the strings to something higher. So if you've got 10's on it now, and you tune up, put 9's on it. That should avoid any need to adjust the truss rod.
