HTC One X - Root or not?
I've had an HOX for like two months now. At first, it was great and at one point it was giving me like up to 5½ hours of screen time from 100%-10%, if I wanted to finish a season of some show or whatever, straight from full charge. Then, suddenly, it fell to like 2 hours per 100%..
I'm trying to fix it with 30%-80% cycles.
Anyways, I heard that rooting can let you sleep 3 out of 4 cores when you're not using them, and other tweaks like that which help battery life.
I don't play games or do any hardcore processing-required-things. I just want a better battery life and more screen time.
Should I root?
[Could you please tell me if there are any big risks other than voiding the warranty?]

Re: HTC One X - Root or not?
What your talking about doing sounds like it involves running a custom kernel and tweaking your kernel settings.
However if you previously were obtaining good battery states/screen on times and now its dropped then I'm going to point to something that has changed in your system/setup.Paul
