Swag = OFF

This ROM is based on the last two OTA updates for the HTC EVO 4G: 4.54.651.1 and 4.24.651.1. 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. The look of this version is 100% stock.
