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:

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
