Swagged Out Stock v1.9.0.8*Swag Flu

IntroductionThis ROM was originally based on the 4.53.651.1 OTA update for the HTC EVO 4G and has included all of the parts of the 4.54.651.1 OTA update (except the boot.img) into it. The ROM is rooted and has had as much bloatware removed as possible. The goal of this ROM is to give those that enjoy the stock ROM a clean environment to work in. While at the same time, giving the ability to add some tweaks and swagger to keep the ROM competitive.

Swagged Out:
When your swag is so great that the second you walk into a room b_tches be on your d_ck.

Team Swag
My name is Sam Sarsten. I am a contributing editor for the EVO-loving site Good and EVO. Feel free to call me swagstr. This is the first ROM I have ever written. I would like to thank dsixda for his HTC Android Kitchen. I would also like to thank NinjaWolf for compiling the base rooted, deodexed ROM. None of this would have been possible without those two people.

I'd also like to thank HTC and Sprint for the awesome phone. Also, Jenn K. Lee for running the great site, Good and EVO!

My name is Tyler Land you can call me PFC or PFC Land. I am currently in college going for my major in graphics. I am also in the Army National Guard. I have been using Android phones for two years and have been rooted since about the beginning. I would like to thank swagstr for letting me be part of this awsome ROM and also to all the devs that help make these roms and guides that I have used and helped me learn how to use my rooted phone the right way.
