Say goodbye to locked HTC bootloaders as the folks at the XDA Developers Forum have once again made the impossible a reality. HTC owners have already witnessed firsthand how hard it is to crack HTC bootloaders, most especially those devices that are coming from mobile carriers. The AT&T One X may be one of the first phones to sport a quad-core processor, but it’s also one of the many HTC devices that sport a locked bootloader.
Having an unlocked bootloader is necessary for users to install custom ROMs and other modified hacks on your device. If you have been addicted to flashing custom ROMs in the past, then certainly a locked bootloader will spoil all your fun. Thanks to the hard work of XDA member grankin01, users of the AT&T One X will never have to worry about locked bootloaders ever again.
The method of unlocking the HTC One X’s bootloader involves using the HTCdev.com website and familiarity of ADB commands. However, the process of unlocking your phone’s bootloader involves a complicated procedure and is recommended only for advanced users who already have experienced modifying their phones.
If you are brave enough to take the risk, then check out our step-by-step guide on how to root your HTC One X.
