Open up the Browser, and type in "about:debug" (minus the quotes of course)
This will enable debug settings and the Java Console. This wont survive a
restart of the app/phone, so you will have to re-enable it next time.
Goto Settings -> About Phone, and click repeatedly on
Android version and you will see what happens. :-D

1: Make a backup! (never hurts, ever)
2: Either wipe everything EXCEPT DATA manually, or flash the ROM directly.
3: Flash the ROM (a given I would think)
4: Reboot and WAIT....

When you reboot for the first time after flashing the ROM, it may take anywhere from 30 seconds to 10 minutes to boot up. Dont be alarmed! Just wait patiently. All my testers have been successful in booting this up, even though their bootup times varied quite a bit. Just let it sit.

Also, when you get into the ROM, and get stuff set up, let it SETTLE for a bit. Scripts have to run, and things need to install. It will be choppy at first, but a few minutes of use will smooth is out. After that, even after a reboot, it will be smooth right from boot up!

Here are my thanks, in no particular order:

Google (Android OS!)
VanirAOSP (for an excellent base to build from)
SonicXML (For amazing GIT help and code support)
Sparkyman (Help with testing and ideas)
PrimeDirective (Help with testing, code, and ideas)
Hashcode (Help with random issues and questions)
JBirdVegas (Help with random issues and questions)
Im sure theres more, but this is the top of the list....
