Yes, this image should work. I downloaded it and started it in QEmu to test
it and found that, initially, it was stuck at a black screen. However, it
eventually showed the lock screen - it may take a minute or so.

The instructions for running the image should work reasonably, but the amount
of memory allocated to the emulator could be increased to 2G or 3G (as much as
the phone itself):


I'll update the documentation to reflect this. Let me know if you still have
issue with it.
