If HTC’s One X is your high-end smartphone of choice these days, but you’re not very comfortable with that Android ICS/Sense 4 UI software combination, there’s only one thing to do. Yes, I’m talking about flashing one of the cool and functional custom ROMs available around the web. But before doing that you’ll need to unlock the bootloader.
Up until now, to do that, you were forced to use a Windows or Linux-based computer, and, as usual, Mac users were left hanging for a solution for their favorite platform. That’s all in the past, however, thanks to XDA Senior Member jnichols959, who has come up with a bootloader SuperCID unlock script made to work on Apple’s Macs and designed for Rogers and AT&T’s HTC One X.
The new unlock tool is identical to the Windows and Linux-based one-click SuperCID script made available back in May and, exactly like that one, it works like a charm, without any bug or glitch reported just yet.
Before getting down to business, you’ll have to root your HTC One X by downloading the file and following the instructions at this link here, enable USB debugging on your device, and disable fast boot. From here on out, the installation process should be smooth, but if there’s something you don’t understand, or, if God forbid, that doesn’t work, you should check out jnichols959’s XDA forum thread here.
How about it, guys? Have you taken the new unlocking script for a spin on your Mac? Does the installation work as smoothly as promised? Have you flashed a custom ROM on your HTC One X? Hit us with a comment and let us know!
