Lets just make this a general thread, because I've put some work in to this for a couple months and I wasn't too sure what to do with it over in /w/, but here it will get a good following and might be able to do the same at WPCentral.

Feel free to post yours, as I've not done this yet, but it's on my to-do list!

Anyways, I'll start by linking my pastebin and attaching a picture that sums everything else up.
Please note this also includes WP7 for people who might have gotten one as a hand-me-down/free phone.

Also If you have an ATIV S, ATIV S NEO, or an ATIV Odyssey, you can set your own custom accent colors by using SamWP8 Tools and flipping over to the tweak tab. (You must be InteropUnlocked for this to work!)

Hey I was able to install UCBrowser from

@thal1992
http://pastebin.com/LGrYGGzz :UC Browser - Jailbreak edition - This app is actually an external web browser that works like Opera Mini, but you can install xaps with it.
http://www.ucweb.com/index.html

on my 928. The browser is fully functional and when downloading a .xap file instead of the enterprise apps error I get the trust UCBrowser in WP7 RootTools. No interop cap in the WMAppManifest (not my doing, downloaded this way)yet there is a separate InteropManifest. If only we could put to use the ComXapHandler and WP7RootToolsSDK .dll's contained in the app in the manner they were created for... Any ideas?
