The future of Swagged Out Stock [UPDATED – 8.23]

Hello Swag Nation,

It’s swagstr reporting back in the United States. My internship in Japan is over and I wanted to address somethings before we get developing.

First of all, I want to introduce everyone to DJarkIV, he is the newest member of Team Swag. If you use SOS M for the HTC EVO 3D, you can actually personally thank him for the last two releases of SOS M (2.4.5 and the forthcoming 2.6). 99.9% of those updates were his work and they were truly BAD ASS! I look forward to working with him and I hope you all welcome him with warm arms.

Another big announcement, mickeyXDA, creator of MeanROM ICS the base of SOS M for the HTC EVO 3D, has given me the green light to create a Sense-less ROM for the HTC EVO 4G LTE based on his ROM for the aforementioned smartphone. Unfortunately because no one at Team Swag owns this phone, Swag Nation will have to be patient as this ROM develops slowly.

Moving back to the HTC EVO 4G (I haven’t forgotten). There will be some minor and major changes with the next release First is that the package ROM will be renamed from SOS X/S/N (ugly name!) to SOS+. Next, for the sake of keeping things nice and tidy across devices, SOS N has been renamed to SOS M and the default launcher is now Holo Launcher (which is based off of the ICS Launcher). This makes the newly-named SOS M for the HTC EVO 4G look more like its big brother(s?). The rest of the updates are fairly minor for this release and I hope it prepares us for the upcoming final release of SOS+, this will most likely be in three updates.

Finally, SOS V’s development is – yep, you guessed it – dead. It was a small project that I did for fun but other people do a better job of maintaining stock ROMs than me. Oh well, the ROM is still available for anyone that wants it.

For a reminder of the differences in the different versions of SOS for the EVO 4G and the original post from way back when… keep reading!
