I usually use netboot, others use hd-media from USB sticks etc.

There are daily installer images at
http://d-i.debian.org/daily-images/armhf/ but these are built from the
kernel etc in sid not from svn, i.e. don't yet include the changes to
enable uEVM, so until the kernel is next uploaded you would indeed need
to build d-i yourself.

That's not too hard: Take all the udebs from your kernel build (e.g.
from dcmd --udeb linux_..._armhf.changes) and put them in the
build/localudebs directory of the debian-installer.git. Then:
         make -C build build_netboot
etc. It doesn't (easily?) cross compile, so you will need an armhf host.
