Nice to have

Haven't had time to read through the document yet, so there might actually be something already but:

Something that would be nice to have here is some feedback from people who tried it out for different phones. Knowing things like:
Did the instruction work? Was it unclear in any places? Did it work for others with the same handset as me? Was it worth the effort?

That could help convince people to try it out if there is some assurance that others managed it before them.

Well, hopefully, you can eventually just go to XDA and download ready-made builds. XDA members do and maintain stuff that's a hell of a lot more obscure than this, so I'm guessing that within a few weeks and months, we see builds appearing for popular devices.

Then again, that just may be wishful thinking.
