Downloads
Before downloading, you should really read this. It's short, I promise :)

Last download link: Mediafire

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

WARNING: If you have already installed a 4.67 OTA-based SOS ROM (i.e. Swag = OFF v2.0.1), with a full wipe, then you can simply flash this ROM over v2.0.1. If you are using v1.9.0.9 PR or lower, this update requires a full wipe This wipe is required for full functiontionality. This will (hopefully) be the only wipe needed for 4.67 OTA-based SOS ROMs. This ROM is still based off of the 4.54 OTA, but v1.9.0.9 will prepare you for future updates (i.e. this will save you from having to wipe later). MyBackup Root is a great (free) tool to backup your app data as well as texts and call logs.

Team Swag HIGHLY recommends a full wipe when updating. But, if you decide not to do a full wipe - the ROM will still work. It just be missing a few under the hood tweaks (which you probably wouldn't even notice).

Themes & Add-Ons
All working themes can be found here: SOS Themes Blog

A few add-ons can be found here: Swag = ON Add-Ons

Please report all bugs to Team Swag (swagstr | pfcland | torzak) via the XDA thread, Twitter or email.

Swagification
These are either MetaMorph themes or flashable .zips - the instructions will state which type of file you are downloading. For detailed instructions on how to flash a .zip, head over to the installation page.

The MetaMorph Theme: Explained - for anyone having issues with MetaMorph themes

Swagification:
"The natural ability, or the art of having swagger." So let's get your EVO even more Swagged Out already!

Themes
Full Themes section can be found in the SOS App (now included with ROM). Or at the link: here.

Some themes not included in the SOS App have been included below.

Keyboards
These are installable .apks. This will modify the keyboards that come with Swag = ON.

To install: Uninstall your current HTC_IME Mod and then install the new one you want. Easy as that.

"Stock" | Blue | Dark Blue | Green | Orange | Pink | Purple | Red | Yellow [Coming in the next few days]

Status Bar/Notification Pulldown Modifications
These are MetaMorph themes. Status bar themes.

To install: Go to MetaMorph > Unzip/extract new theme (if you've used the theme before, still select this option, but then hit Update) > hit Close > hit "Apply all!" > wait till it's done > (tricky part) hold power button > Nothing happens but a light vibrate > Hold power button again > nothing happens for a sec, then EVO will hot restart on its own > Enjoy colorful joy!

Battery Icons
Swagged Out Battery

Stock Battery

Transition Animations
These are MetaMorph themes. These animations were originally made for MikFroyo, but they still work on our Swaggalicious EVOs! These made menus just a bit cooler by flying and zipping all over the place... be sure to check 'em out below.


Requests are more than welcome :)

Add-Ons
NOTE: These are all flashable .zips unless otherwise stated. These are not MetaMorph themes.

All the stuff you need to make your EVO running Swagged Out Stock awesome (or bring it back to stock). This section also provides you with removed apps, essential apps, and misc. add-ons. Enjoy! :D

Kernels
lithid-cm's Freedom (with undervolt choices - latest version includes TeamWin's HDMI mirroring): Flashable .zip choices here
barnacles10's ChopSuey Beta (includes TeamWin's HDMI mirroring): Flashable .zip
barnacles10's ChopSuey Stable: Flashable .zip
Netarchy's Golden Monkey: Flashable .zip
Stock with N fix: Right here :) Thanks to github for providing that

Android Lock Screen
Sometimes, you want to be able to slide left-to-right instead of up-and-down. For those interested, here is the Android Lock Screen. Just flash this puppy and you are good to go!

Android Lock Screen: Multiupload | Mediafire

To return to the HTC Lock Screen you must flash the .zip below. Note: this is only for Swag = ON. If you are using Swag = OFF, reflash the Unswagification Pack, this will UNDO any other modifications (themes, kernels, etc.) you have made to SOS, though.

HTC Lock Screen (Swag = ON only): Multiupload | Mediafire

Classic Android Market
The latest update for the Android Market is pretty slick, but I've heard some people wishing for the old guy back. Here he is!

Classic Android Market: Multiupload | Mediafire

To return to the latest Android Market, you simply need to reflash the ROM, this will UNDO any other modifications (themes, kernels, etc.) you have made to SOS, though.

Fonts
Stock HTC EVO 4G font (Swag = OFF default): Flashable .zip
Roboto font pack (Swag = ON default): LINK
Comfortaa font pack (Nostalgic Swag = ON default): Flashable .zip - thanks to aajohan
Hundreds more fonts found at this thread!

App Packs
Legend:
' = uninstallable system app
* = easily uninstallable non-system app

Bloatware Pack (formerly the Removed App Pack):
All the system apps removed during Swagification.

Multiupload | Mediafire

Includes:
Amazon MP3'
App Sharing '
Blockbuster'
Checkin Provider' (was removed to block OTA updates)
Flickr'
Footprints + widget'
Genie Widget'
HTC Car Panel'
HTC IQ Agent (this is a CIQ app)'
HTC Mobile Guide'
IQRD (this is a CIQ app)'
Kindle'
Stocks + widget'
Teeter'

Sprint Pack
It is recommended you use the CIQ Adder, listed below to ensure that Sprint Apps work properly
Multiupload | Mediafire

Includes:
NOVA'
Qik Video Chat* (from Market)
Sprint Mobile Alerts* (from Market)
Telenav Navigator* (from Market)
Sprint Radio* (from Market)
Sprint TV + widget'
Sprint Zone'

Sports Pack
Including the two Sprint Sport Apps (I hope to get updated versions soon), this also may require CIQ to be added back

Multiupload | Mediafire

Includes:
NASCAR Sprint Cup Mobile'
Sprint Football Live'

Live Wallpaper Pack
Includes all those cool live wallpapers removed during Swagification

Multiupload | Mediafire

Includes:
HTC Weather Wallpaper' (which is included in the ROM)
Live Wallpapers' (random LWP)
Magic Smoke Wallpapers'
Mode 10 Wallpapers' (Sense LWP)
Visualization Wallpapers'

Instructions on how to send back select apps (i.e. not every app included in a pack) are found on the Installation page.

Essential App Pack
Normally, ROMs come with a lot of apps that many users will use often, but I know that everybody won't use them. Due to that reason, I try to include as few apps as possible (and make them fully uninstallable). For those that do like to have some extra apps added in easily, this is the right place for you! The instructions are the same as the other App Packs, except the apps are located in /data/app.

[Will be updated in the coming weeks]

CIQ Adder
If you are a fan of Sprint apps, you may need this. CIQ is explained here, and the reason it is not included in this ROM can be found here. However, according to this, you shouldn't worry too much about CIQ. If you are having problems running Sprint apps, try flashing this.

Swag = ON: Multiupload | Mediafire
Swag = OFF: Multiupload | Mediafire

To re-strip CIQ, you simply need to reflash the ROM (Swag = ON) or Unswagification Pack (Swag = OFF), this will UNDO any other modifications (themes, kernels, etc.) you have made to SOS, though.

Other Add-Ons
These are some other files I use that I had no part in making (like kernels and fonts), but they are flippin' awesome!

Latest Radio Update (2.15.00.08.08)
Recently a new radio update was release for the HTC EVO 4G, be sure to update to it to receive the latest updates for your EVO!

Flashable .zip

When flashing this file, recovery will tell you to reboot. Do this by going back to recovery's main screen and selection Reboot (at the top). Then a weird updating phone thingy will pop up. Then it will go back to recovery and you can reboot again and you'll be good to go. Warning: Do not pull your battery or perform a radio update on a low battery. Let the installation complete. Failure to do so could result in you bricking your EVO (you have been warned). Also: It is a good idea to back up your WiMAX keys. This G&E article should help you out.

Splash Screen
This is NOT a flashable .zip, follow the instructions below. White-on-black Splash Screen (looks great with the boot animation for SOS):

PC36IMG.zip

Place this file on the root of your SD card, use the 4-in-1 reboot mod to reboot into the bootloader, select BOOTLOADER, press volume up to confirm install, then volume up again to reboot, enjoy! Make sure the file is name "PC36IMG.zip" and not something like "PC36IMG (1).zip" or it won't flash. Thanks to JSZESZE for the splash screen and thepiecesfit for making this PC36IMG.zip

Amon RA Recovery
Using ROM Manager, an app included with SOS, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the in-app options. The first-to-last option (under "More Recoveries") will read "Flash Alternative Recovery." Use this to flash Amon RA Recovery.

swagstr personally recommends manually downloading SOS and using Amon's recovery over ClockworkMod. However, ROM Manager is so damn easy! So the choice is really up to you ;)

Q&A, Changes, and Work-in-progress

Q&A

Full Q&A can be found in the SOS App (now included with ROM). Or at the link: here.

Updated changelog can be found: here.

Hope y'all enjoy! And, @eVoKINGS Thanks for the welcome :D

If any developer wants help porting any of this junk to their ROM (*cough* native screenshots *cough*), give me a holler. More than willing to spread the knowledge I've gained while building this ROM.

There's some themes and add-ons I want to put up... but I'm too sleepy, there is a sneak peek at the blog. Until then... good night ;)

Hey man, this is sweet, I might have to use this as a base for the red hot ota! Lol it's in high demand although I cringe at the thought of having to flash back to sense 1.0 o_O

I don't want to confuse users. We are not associated in anyway so I'm not sure why the kernel I have been working on is included. I was never approached about my work being incorporated into your "swag". If you enjoy the kernel, direct users to it, would be much more easier for me to maintain, much apprecited.

@mpitcher225 Thanks, I'd have no problem with this being used as a base (hopefully I haven't caused any bugs ;)) And I thought Sense 2.1/3.0 was the best, but man, Sense 1.0 still got it!

@lithid-cm I don't wanna start my dev life pissin' people off lol I sent you a PM :)

@vplug Definitely not, but the Rosie is themed to look like Sense 2.0+ (lets face it, it looks cooler :p)

@ItsDon m20120 is correct, the ROM is deodexed. This and many other details are fully laid out in the blog (link in my sig). And I don't have a clean install running right now, but I don't have any extra apps installed beyond the base. I have 251MB free and Darktremor's Apps2SD is enabled for this ROM, JSYK ;)

To everyone else, thanks for the positive support! I hope we can keep this up so you guys (and gals ;)) can have a great ROM to run (and me too, I use this ROM lol).

Is this rom odexed? Can you tell me how much storage space is left (on Swagged version) after a clean install?
I just did a clean install of this rom - swagged version - and I have 387 MB of available space with about 10 extra apps that loaded up after the install. Very fast and responsive thus far.

Great job on the ROM swagstr - thanks button has been hit!
