Remember before we even start talking here that this is a WORK IN PROGRESS and that the whole kitchen should be up shortly, so says the fellow doing all the hard work on this ROM, a guy named Paul. Also right away know that you've GOT TO wipe your entire device (ALL of it) before flashing this ROM. Paul notes that this is because of the resigning of key components with the AOSP platform key, for facilitating skinning, customizing, and etcetera. And since we're just going to end up going to the cut before any of the other details anyway, I must remind you that hacking, although seemingly encouraged by Android and Google, should be done with caution as it could wreck your whole device. Have fun below!

Take a peek at all the lovely features you'll have when you install this fancy ROM:

Features at this time:
• Packaged for ClockworkMod
• Rebuilt using the MoDaCo MCR optimisation scripts
• Full up to date Google experience + additional apps (including new look Market)
• UK English for Voice Dialler
• HSPA icon differentiation ('H' icon when transferring data via HSPA)
• Insecure boot image
• su / Superuser.apk root
• Support for running scripts from /etc/init.d at startup
• Terminfo support (for nano etc)
• Busybox 1.18.1
• framework-res and core libraries / apks are signed with the 'platform' certificate from AOSP, aiding those who wish to edit the framework-res / SystemUI.apk to theme. Simply extract, edit, resign with the platform certificate and push the file. Tidy.
• A bunch of other stuff that i've [Paul has] forgotten
Installation is recommended via ClockworkMod recovery, ENSURE YOU HAVE A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING!

To do all this you'll have to do some downloading. One for the prebake: r1 WIP (default options) - [DOWNLOAD] (ROMraid Load Balancing) - MD5: 2335053de6849b7effb49baf590e41d8. And the other once the kitchen is ready. To get this, you'll have to head over to MoDaCo to see what's up.

If you're reading this post in the future and you've already got this ROM working, please tell us below how it's working out, if it's working, what's going on, how much it rocks, etc!
