New Mod Pack for 1.22 Update on the HTC EVO 4G LTE
When an OTA update is released for a device, rooted users and are running custom ROMs often have to wait a little longer to get the update. This is because developerss have to re-base the ROM, bringing it up to date with the most current firmware, and re-applying any tweaks, mods, or themes.
This is pretty standard, as anything from kernels to just a single mod might have to be reworked in order to make it compatible with the newest firmware. HTC EVO 4G LTE owners recently saw a firmware update, and now most tweaks have similarly been updated. XDA Senior Member O.M.J. has created a mod pack specifically designed to work with the 1.22 update, and quite a few things were updated, including:
SMS Secure Box
SMS Block List
MMS over Wifi
5M MMS size
While the list is already impressive, O.M.J. has stated that more mods will be added. There are also two versions—one is flashable in custom recovery, whereas the other contains the files for ROM developers to incorporate directly.
