Where to download images
You can grab the image from here and following the steps described on the wiki page to test the image.

This release comes with PowerVR SGX from Texas Instruments. If you try both two images with SGX and without SGX, you would tell how amazing it displays photos in Gallery 3D application. Like ususal, it also comes with a happy Installer and it would bring you an Android Eclair system in few seconds. If you are looking for more details about the integration, you could reference to this wiki page.
