This kitchen is NOT for Windows Mobile phones
Basic requirements and setup
You need an Android device that can boot to the rooted recovery menu.
This kitchen mainly supports HTC Android devices. I am not sure about the extent of success with non-HTC devices, but it may be possible to create a working ROM. Windows Mobile phones running Android are currently not supported.
Plus you need one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu Linux, Mac OS X, or Windows (using Cygwin, or virtual machine containing Ubuntu)
You must read the FAQ in the 3rd post of this thread for information about setup and using the kitchen. Tutorial videos are also provided!
RELEASE NOTES are in Post #2
