I've been reading up a bit on how to flash a recovery on this thing, and I'm getting the impression that the method that is used by the CWMR installers posted on XDA is a bit of a hack.. They seem to just replace or insert chargemon as a shellscript under the main (non-recovery) system that just sets up a seperate environment (loaded from an included .tar file) when it detects the back button is pressed during boot. But you're still basically booting the 'normal' kernel if I understand correctly.
It seems that to actually flash a kernel and everything you have to unlock the bootloader using a Windows tool called 's1tool' (a post covering this can be found here: http://forum.xda-dev...177&postcount=3), after which you can flash to your heart's content using Flashtool (http://androxyde.github.com/Flashtool).
I haven't done that last part yet, but I just needed to dump this here before my brain explodes, hopefully others can comment on wether I got this right. I may attempt to unlock my bootloader and flash CM on it, and I'll update this post if I succeed

For the SuperOneClick thing, I'm going to host a copy for the time being. So if you want to download it, you can quickly grab it from: http://sambull.org/d...1-ShortFuse.zip
Some additional instructions for people not familiar with how to use ADB, these are the commands for the steps mentioned in the guide.
On my machine I have extracted the zip file on the desktop:

Edit: Tried the latest nightly release (20), and it gives the same error when trying to install again. Is there any chance we'll actually get a release that can be installed?

I've just tried the MiniCM rom (the pro one is unavailable, because it's on multiupload). It installed successfully, no problem there, until you reboot. When I try to reboot or power off, I get a warning about needing to recover CWM or something. If I select not to recover, then my phone is bricked, and I have to use the Update Service Setup to reset the phone. If I allow it to recover, it still won't boot, but I can access CWM still.
Would anybody else like to try it out, and see if they can get any better results?
