Re: HTC One X (Rogers) Custom Rom - Newbie Help.
First of all, XDA is the place to go. I was running ViperXL 3.2.8 with the newest Elemental kernel. It had tons of options and lots of eye candy, but as I started playing with it.. it began to glitch for me. Everytime I flashed a custom theme or something from the HUB, it got a little more funky on me. I'm sure I didn't help by constantly screwing with things, but that was kind of the point of the ROM anyways. It's a really cool ROM, but no longer supported with updates in the last several months so that ended my experiment. It's really neat and worth a try, but I wasn't satisfied.
I switched to MagioROM R4 with the Beastmode 3.5 kernel and it is INCREDIBLY stable, fast, and the battery lasts forever. It has alot of great customizations with this kernel, it offers OTA updates to newer versions, is still being actively updated, and BEST OF ALL it is Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5 which is the newest and greatest this phone has available at this time. If you prefer simple, streamlined, and clean then I can recommend this. The kernel still has all the tweaks for CPU and memory you could ever ask for and the kernel has the Aroma Installer which is nice and easy.
As far as the AOSP ROMs, I didn't care to go through the extra step of downgrading my touchscreen as they all require since I've taken the RUU update from AT&T and have the newest hboot (2.14) and so on. I liked Cyanogenmod on my old phone, but I prefer a fast and functional Sense rom at this point. Camera is one of the better aspects of a Sense ROM as well as the aforementioned keyboard thing. There is also a place on XDA where you can download the APN for your specific carrier to make sure everything runs smoothly on MagioROM. Everything on my phone works better and smoother than it did when I originally upgraded to the official AT&T JellyBean. It seems all the bugs have been worked out.. No broken WiFi or bad reception. Mine is actually improved. That's all the opinion I can offer. Feel free to ask more questions if I can help.
The AT&T version that I modded has the dual-core SnapDragon processor. You can search by device at XDA so you should have less issue finding a ROM that is compatible. Not sure what the Rogers one is, but I believe it's the same phone.
