It's based on a hybrid of SHOLS_U2_02.36.0 for central Europe, and SHOLS_U2_03.11.0 for Telus, with North American frequencies enabled. Uses LauncherPro as the default, and only bundled launcher, includes the Dalvik cache hack, and will overclock the CPU to 1100MHz. To some, this may be excessive, but the Cortex A8 is an extremely capable CPU, which, I've found, has absolutely no trouble running at even 1250MHz while being absolutely stable. At 1100MHz, the device remains cool to the touch, aside from when there's heavy 3G activity - something that occurs even at stock speeds. That said, battery life continues to be as good, if not better, than a stock firmware.
The overclock is automatically adjusted based on the load of the CPU. If you rarely do intensive tasks with your device, it will rarely reach its max clock speed. This helps to ensure cool, reliable operation while being completely unnoticeable by the end-user.
If you would like to change, or disable overclocking, you can do so with GOT's OpenRecovery. It will override the default settings.
JIT is NOT installed. If you'd like JIT, it can be installed via OpenRecovery.
What you can expect from V4:
-Improved battery life
-Considerably snappier performance all-around
-More reliable data connection
-Automatic APN configuration nearly worldwide
-Unbeatable stability (weeks upon weeks of uptime)
-A new theme
-Interactive Governor added (backport by nadlabak)
-Updated Messaging icon
-Uses Google DNS for faster host resolves
-Plenty of performance enhancements
-Updated Market (thanks antonyfl)
-Switched to ADW Launcher
-Other stuff I can't remember.
-Modified Phone.apk (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?p=8120125)
-Additional scheduler improvements
-Fixed setup page glitch
You'll notice the power menu has an entry labeled "Yearly". It's reboot. I'm too lazy to find the reboot string. Yeah, it looks weird, but it works. If you don't like it, just swap out android.policy.jar with one from an earlier version.

I'd like to thank Jedipottsy for the base theme design. The post can be found here.
When upgrading from version 3.0 or earlier, or coming from a different "rom" entirely, I very strongly suggest you wipe your device prior to flashing. You don't have to, but you wont receive many of the performance gains without doing so.
Future versions will not necessitate, or recommend, a wipe. Including 4.0 to 4.1.
For those who require 900/1800/2100 frequencies, they can be enabled by applying the update.zip below. Be sure you've already installed the backup before you run the update.zip, however. Further localization, such as keyboard layout, can be accomplished using OpenRecovery.
Big thanks to peterdelara for the mirrors.
