  • Right button remappable via SOS Tweaks, some themes included in SOS/MetaMorph_Themes (install with ZipThemer)
  • Advanced Power Menu and Volume Rocker Mod (to change songs)
  • All Google Play apps updated (as of release)

  • MMS compression fix
  • Quick Settings, Recent Apps, Swiping Notificiations, 1X/3G icon fix, GPS icon removed in status bar
  • OTA Updates via ROM Manager Premium
  • Stock Font

First thing to do after installation:

Direct Download: DEODEX | ODEX
Mediafire: DEODEX | ODEX

Update file for those using RLS 4 (no wipe necessary): DEODEX

Installation/Update Instructions
General ROM installation instructions can be found here: SOS Blog - Installation Page

WARNING: If you are coming from SOS v2.0.1 or lower, a full wipe is required. If you are running any of the RLSs from the Soak Test, no wipes are necessary (but download the entire ROM). These wipes are required for full functiontionality. This will (hopefully) be the only wipe needed for 4.67 OTA-based SOS ROMs. MyBackup Root is a great (free) tool to backup your app data as well as texts and call logs.

None of the themes for SOS based off of the 4.54/4.53 OTAs will work for this update (i.e. ICE CREAM SWAG, SWAG FLU, SNAP BACK SWAG, etc)

Remappable icons can be found: HERE

MOD | Lock Screen Bars

Removed Apps (this is just a .zip with the removed apps - don't flash): Here

Swagged Out Window Animations (MetaMorph Themes install with ZipThemer):
Stock | Blur | Bounce | CM7 | Derp | Eternity | Flip | Fly Fold | Fly In | Fold | MIUI | Mix | Myn | Photon | Riptide | Rudolph | Slide | Twist | Up Down

Swagged Out Smiles (MetaMorph Themes install with ZipThemer):
Stock | ICS

Thanks to: dean_fx

Other Add-Ons
Dark Tremor's A2SD Flashable Add-On - Thread | Download - You may have to flash this file twice and give it some time to boot after install - took 10+ mins for me.
RockoDev's Beats Audio - Thread | Download
XxXPachaXxX's xLOUD Audio Engine - Thread | Download
Hacked Pandora App - [Blog only]

SOS S/X Stock Kernel: mjhuffer's Stock Kernel w/Wireless-N Fix - Thread | Download

The following kernels will cause an error that will flip the front facing camera 180 degrees. Simply turn your phone sideways when video chatting with the front facing camera... but there kernels are bad ass:
Please report all bugs to Team Swag (swagstr | pfcland | torzak) via the XDA thread, Twitter or email.

FC when dialing *2 for customer service - to fix, navigate to the SOS/Useful Apps folder on your SD card and install SprintZone.apk.
