Scroll down to post #2 for changelog, post #3 for installation guide, and post #4 for download links.

Please read entire document before flashing. According to CyanogenMod rules, I am required to tell you all that this is an unofficial port of CyanogenMod, and you all are supposed to read the whole document under this:

CyanogenMod is a free, community built distribution of Android which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.
While this port is in the alpha stage, users will experience key issues. I am aware of the issue. The arrow keys on the QWERTY keyboard is used in recovery.

#Standard CM Disclaimer;
* Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up or hard bricking your device, I will laugh at you.

Please do NOT post bug reports on any issue tracker for these builds. These are UNOFFICIAL Nightly Builds of CWM5 for the Sharp FX Plus (ADS1). I repeat this is an unofficial port. If you post issues on the official CyanogenMod bug tracker, they will laugh, and delete it. Post all issues in THIS THREAD.

Installation Guide:
WARNING: It is very important that the recovery image that you use MY recovery image. If you use someone elses, there is a VERY HIGH RISK that you WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE.

Download flash_image and extract it from the zip file to a location on your computer.
Copy the recovery image for your phone to a convenient location on your computer, preferably with a short path.
I will be placing it on the C Drive directly (not in any folder) and using that in the next steps.
Note: The recovery image should have .img extension. If it is in a zip file, extract the .img file from it.
Enable USB debugging mode on your device from Menu > Settings > Applications > Development.
Connect your device to your computer via USB.
Open a Command Prompt window on your computer and enter the following commands:
adb push c:\flash_image /sdcard/
adb push c:\recovery.img /sdcard/
adb shell
mount -o remount, rw /system
cp /sdcard/flash_image /system/bin
cd /system/bin
chmod 777 flash_image
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
This will first transfer flash_image and recovery.img to your phone. Then it will copy flash_image to the /system/bin folder of your Android device and make it executable. Finally, it will flash the custom recovery image to your device using flash_image.
Note that we used c:\flash_image and c:\recovery.img in the first two lines as we had these files extracted at the root of our C drive. If you extracted the files elsewhere, use the appropriate paths and if your recovery image has a different name, use the appropriate name.

Reboot your device once the process is finished and you

Noob here, this is the first time I've worked in a unix/linux/android environment. I had a little trouble at first, the cp command needed busybox in front of it, then it worked fine. Ok so I have cwm 5028 installed, I'm trying to figure out what my next step is. I used z4root to root as superoneclick 2.3.3 would just hang and I can't find a copy of superoneclick 2.2 that doesn't require downloading a download manager (which seems shady), anyway I still can't remove the bloatware. Also I'm pulling my hair out trying to find a rom. Good job with the instructions though, anyone slightly familiar with the dos shell could follow it easily enough.
