    Default [HOW TO] Root your One X!

    Proceed at your OWN Risk

    I have compiled a simple and comprehensive guide on how to achieve root, or SuperUser permissions, on almost any ROM on the international One X, granted your bootloader is unlocked.

    (This may also work on the AT&T and/or Rogers One XL, but I haven't tried it)

    So considering your bootloader is unlocked, and you have a custom recovery, (steps for custom recovery here) along with fastboot files on your computer (used when unlocking bootloader) proceed with these steps:

    1) Download the flashable SuperSU zip file (by Chainfire) from here:

    http://download.chainfire.eu/204/Sup...erSU-v0.94.zip

    And keep a copy of it in your phone.

    2) When your phone is on, press and hold the power and volume down button, till it boots into the hboot screen (white screen with some text near the top), don't worry if it takes a screenshot, just keep on holding the buttons.

    3) Select 'Recovery' from there.

    4) In recovery, wipe cache partition, then go to advanced, and clear dalvik cache.

    5) Choose install Zip from SDCard, choose zip from SDCard, go to the folder where the SuperSU zip is located, and flash that.

    6) After its successfully flashed, reboot your phone.

    7) You will find an app called 'SuperSU.'

    8) Now, when you launch an app that requires root permissions, like Titanium Backup and Go Backup, a dialog box will pop up, and if you allow it, the app will be granted root permissions!


    Congratulations, you are now rooted

    Lastly, enjoy, and do let me know If it works for you, ask me any question in this thread and I will do my best to reply to it ASAP, also, do hit Thanks

    I always thought you had to be rooted before getting unlocked and install recovery

    Nope. Once you unlock the bootloader, you can root it. Root can't be achieved on the Int'l One X without unlocking. And you don't 'need' to root to unlocl

    Your welcome Chema!

    Sure

    First of all, go to htcdev.com, and sign up there. For the unlocking process you will need 3 files, which i'll send you when I get home, or you could download the entire Android SDK of like 1 gb. But forget that, I'll send you the files, they are small, less than an MB. Meanwhile signup on htcdev.com

    EDIT

    Almost forgot, go to htc.com, go to support, go to the htc one x section, and go the downloads tab, and download htc sync.

    So heres what you do till I get home.

    1) Signup on htcdev.com

    2) download and install HTC Sync, and conect your phone to it in HTC sync mode. This installs drivers.

    If your bootloader is unlocked, I'm 99% sure it'll work.

    The AT&T One X's bootloader can be unlocked. Try it and then flash the SuperSU Zip, but make a nandroid backup before doing so

    ROM
    Stock

    If you are already rooted it might be easier to flash a boot.img and a custom Rom based on the update.

    If your downloader is unlocked, yes it will!

    Yes I do. To unroot, and return to a stock ROM, and relock your bootloader, follow these steps (For the international Quad Core One X)

    1) Download the corresponding RUU for your device (Google it) Maske Sure it's the Correct RUU, the wrong one could ruin your device!

    2) Run this fastboot command:
    Code:
    fastboot oem lock

    3) Run the RUU

    4) Be patient, though If the RUU is stuck at 'sending' for more than 20 mins, disconnect your phone, reboot into fastboot mode, and then re run the RUU (ROM Update utility).

    *Disclaimer* I do not take responsibility for anything that happens, though I have tried this method (including the RUU re run) and it worked for me!

    Hey,
    I'd love to help, but I have an HTC, no Motorola device

    But as Far as I know, you can't downgrade (I.e, go from ICS-GB) but you can return to stock ICS.

    However, since I'm experienced in this, I could do a but of research, and tell you how to do it

    Message me on Google Talk, I PM'd you my email ID, we can discuss it in GTalk
