This section is for advanced users
Think twice before you do!

Works on N900.
Get the latest version of INSTEAD deb-package for MAEMO platform from http://code.google.com
Save it somewhere on your device e.g. /home/user/MyDocs/instead_1.6.1_armel.deb. Then open X-terminal and become root, for activation root shell you need to install rootsh first.

Some example of code:

sudo gainroot
cd /home/user/MyDocs/
dpkg -i instead_1.6.1_armel.deb

For sucsessfull installation of INSTEAD you need to solve some dependencies:
sdl, sdl-mixer, sdl-image, sdl-ttf, lua5.1

To download those packages (*.deb) from the official repository: http://repository.maemo.org/, branches Extras and Extras-devel.
You may also add repos to source list. Then install with APT utilities. Some code:

sudo gainroot
echo "deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel/ fremantle free non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hildon-application-manager.list
echo "deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras/ fremantle free non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hildon-application-manager.list
apt-get install liblua5.1-0 libsdl-mixer1.2 libsdl1.2 libsdl-image1.2 libsdl-ttf2.0-0
