    I don't see WRT54G-TM in the list of supported routers, and didn't find anything definitive by searching the forum. Is it possible to install Tomato on one of those? Any special considerations? It's basically WRT54GL with double the memory, but for some reason DD-WRT only supports it starting with a specific build, so I don't want to brick the router by trying to install Tomato on it.

    As instructed to in the thread, I used the GS version and it worked fine. Version 1.23 for the WRT54GS.

    Yes, but you need a JTAG cable to reflash the bootloader. Otherwise you'll be unable to load anything other then T-Mobile firmware on the router.

    I've got a couple WRT54G-TMs running great for six months now without issue.

    It worked - thanks! Installed version 1.23 for GS v1-3. It was already flashed it to DD-WRT so it was simple. Did the password trick to log in as root (as described in Tomato FAQ).

    They should really add TM to the list of supported devices!

    Actually, you don't need the JTAG cable to reflash. See the post above yours for details.
