I've installed the smartlucky on my vodafone smart (italian) and works very well. I'm italian, i try to translate the instruction for the italian forum to install this rom
Prerequisite: the telephone must be rooted and the the recovery Clockworkmod 4.0.0.2 or above must be already installed (if you need instructions this steps I can translate it from the same forum)

Instructions:
1: Download the rom from the link in the italian forum (the latest build is 2.1.729, the 2.1.1 is only un update and must be installed after the main build)
2: Copy the file SmartLucky2.*.zip into the sd of your phone
3: Enter in recovery mode with colckworkmod (shutdown the phone and press and bring pressed volume-up + power on simultaneously till the load of the clockworkmod)
4: It is better to do a backup of your actual rom with the backup & restore menu (this step is optional but is better to do it in case of problem)
5: Go down with the key Volume down to the menu "Wipe data/factory reset" e confirm with the key power on. Select and confirm Yes -- delete all user data.
6: Go back to the main menu and choos "Install zip from sdcard".
7: Now choose the file "SmartLucky2.*" that you have previsuously insert to the sd card (point 2). Now the installation will start.
8: wait the end of the installation and go back to the main menu and choose "reboot system now".
9: now the phone will restart. The first restart is very very very long, please be patient!

For install the 2.1.1 update the procedure is the same, but you don't need to do the point 5

After the boot you need to launch no-frilld cpu to set the overclock of the cpu (if you want).
The differences from the stock rom are a lots, the principals (about me) are:
1: cpu overclock e underclock
2: photo-camera bring up to 3 Mpixel
3: multitouch enabled

Pay attention: the rom have a littel bug (actually unresolved, due to the multitouch): The back key of the phone is a bit moved to left respect the sign. It's not a problem to use, but is important to know that is necessary tap a bit to left respect the original.

If you need other info please ask me. I'm sorry for my error in the translation but I'm italian

Exclamation
you have to bring pressed VOLUME UP + POWER BUTTON also during the hourglass screen. Don't release buttons before the recovery mode is active.
