Samsung Omnia i910 update

It has come to my attention that the Samsung Omnia i910 from Verizon will be getting a flash update soon (supposedly). The new update is supposed to improve performance and unlock the GPS so it will work with Google Maps. I am anxiously awaiting this update.

It has also come to my attention that someone over at Modaco.com
has come up with a way to flash the phone before Verizon releases their update.
For more info try this link http://www.modaco.com/content-page/286526/new-rom-for-omnia-i910/page/520/.

Here is a list of some of the items that are supposed to be addressed
*Overall performance increase.
* 5% battery increments!
*Smart Memo
*Dice
*Favorite Settings, now known as easy settings
*New widgets. Easier to move around, can remove from list. Weatherbug, WL search.
*Windows Live
*Text Message Retry?
*Dialer Touch Lock Settings-Off, 2s, 5s, 10s
*Disable Threaded Text Messaging via System Settings
*Sharper fonts.
*iPhone-esque popup keyboard keys. Much improved!
*Better kinetic scrolling in Samsung apps.
*Samsung Volume Control
Please note that using the steps mentioned may void your phones warranty. So proceed at your own risk.

I have not decided to take the leap and try this on my own phone yet but I would be curious if anyone else has tried it. If you have tried this yet please post your results.
