Never ask people to test, that's a choice.

I tried all mine CFW. now i'm on 1.01 and all fine.

fyi, your first version 1.00 also has a lot of bug, I don't know the 1.02 version has bug or not, NEVER try it.

Please do not ask people to test your CFW, because you're still a newbie for making this, Test it by yourself for a month in 6 hours/day,

that's my suggestion, StevenTj.

1.02 will cause some bug, for your good, just use earlier version

Btw 1.00 and 1.01 is stable (for your pov)

And I just removed 1.02 since many people ain't like. Also Habib (changing 1.01 to 1.01Basic)

I have added v1.02 to the main article as well.

There doesn't seem to be that much interest as there are only a few replies, so we will just mainpage every few updates vs them all for the time being.
