Usual disclaimer: we are not responsible for anything which might happen to your device.
Update via Rotate+Menu on boot, rename to update.zip and copy to sdcard. Should keep your existing settings, and you should be able to revert to stock if things are going wrong.
What does work:
1. All Standard Stock functionality
2. Reported safe. Does not break E-INK apps
3. Can Revert Safely to Stock
4. Nobody borked the device yet by using this rom.
5. Google Apps (except Market, yet), log in youtube app with your user name and password and the google account will be added to accounts.

v1.02
It includes browser updated by javese: browser can present txt files now.
Confirmed to work:
- Voice Search
- Gmail
- Google Maps
Some third-party apps, which used to fail to run or even be installed, can now be installed and run, e.g.,
- BofA
- e-trade pro.

Market fails to run as it requires to be provisioned by cell provider. Market fix as in forum can be applied.
Some apps or some functions of them which depends on cell connection, for speech recognition, are not going to run, e.g.,
- Flex T9 speech-to-text function does not work, all other functions do.
