Dual Remap Dock

Starting with SWAG FLU H1N1 (v1., Swagged Out Stock has a sweet feature (thanks to tommytomatoe) that allows you to redirect or "remap" the the left and the right buttons on your dock. This is a really exciting because because SOS and The EVO Classic are the only two Sense 1.0 HTC EVO 4G ROMs to have this feature. Skip after the break to see the how-to.

By default, the HTC Sense dock looks something like this:
With an APPS | PHONE | PERSONALIZE button orientation.

Some users may have noticed that SWAG FLU contains a new dock that sports the PHONE | APPS | PERSONALIZE configuration. This is more practical because you are generally going to want to open your app drawer more than you are going to make phone calls.

Remapping allows you to change the left and the right buttons in this configuration. If you text more, replace the Phone button with Messages. Don't add widgets to your home screen all day? Switch the right button to your browser, Facebook, voice search... whatever!

Now, how do we remap these buttons? We'll go over that after the break.

A Quick Note on MetaMorph Themes

Just so ya know... When you download a MetaMorph theme... Don't rename it. Don't even let it get the swagged_out_theme (1).zip going. The file needs to have it's exact name or it won't work and give the error ".xml file missing or invalid."

Hopefully that helps ;)

Ads on the blog

Other the past few months, there have been a lot of ads on the side of the blog. Recently, you may have noticed that the ads disappeared. One day, I woke up and thought to myself... I f---in' hate ads, I bet you guys do too.

Unfortunately, since occasional donations and ads are the only things keeping Team Swag from starving, the ads remained.

However, in a move that has stopped money from flowing into Team Swag's offices... the ads have been removed.

To keep the ads removed I finally (which I truly, truly hate to do) am turning to ask for a little love from Swag Nation.

Whether you want to contribute $1, $2, $5, $20, or $1,000,000 feel free to give what you can.

If you cannot contribute, do not worry... Swagged Out Stock will continue to have updates and continue to be Swagged Out to the max ;)

The best way to contribute is to send a PayPal payment to this email address (just copy and paste the link to the left). If you want to contribute any other way, feel free to contact me at (but don't send payments here).

The latest update to Swagged Out Stock will be released in the next 24 hours. I cannot wait for this update and hope you cannot either!

In honor of the SOS blog reaching 100,000 page views, I have decided to release the SOS App for public release.

DOWNLOAD (no password necessary)

Remember, this app is 100% stable, but it is not 100% complete.

The app currently has four tabs: News (which gets its content from this blog), Themes (which gets its content from the Themes page on this blog - which is out of date BTW), Q&A (which hasn't really been touched yet), and BETA Themes - No DLs yet (which is what the final Themes section will look like - and yes, there are no downloads... yet).

The point of this app is simple, I'm not Sprint, I can't send you a text if something is wrong with your phone. However, I have been running this blog to keep you all updated with the latest Swagged Out news. Originally, this app was simply going to be a way for you all to stay up to date without having to search the internet to find this page first.

But then, PFCLand (who is MIA at the moment) and I sat down and thought up a really cool idea to provide an app that would allow SOS users a place on their EVO where they could download all of the add-ons that Team Swag provides to their users.

For months, I have had these ideas up in my head. I really wanted to release this sooner and am still hesitant to release this now (since it is still a bit away from completion). But I feel you guys can appreciate the app for what it's worth and hopefully you can enjoy the app in it's incomplete form.

In the next few weeks, I hope to provide you all with another great release for the ROM. At the same time, I will be providing the app with incremental updates. The app does not need to be re-downloaded; you simply need to hit the refresh button (lower left) for the app to reset its content (and update itself).

Last but not least: The SOS App is coming to the Android Market soon! More details to come!
