HTC One X for AT&T and Rogers rooted

May 10, 2012

Well, it didn’t take long for the folks at XDA-developers to come up with a permanent rooting solution for the HTC One X on AT&T. You can head to the thread right now if you can’t wait to remove some bloatware from your shiny new phone. Of course, that’s just one of the benefits that root access can provide you.

For now, the rooting method seems to be working for the HTC One X versions offered by AT&T and Rogers. The one-click process is super simple – all you have to do is follow six simple steps. Therefore, you might want to leave your preconceptions aside and enter the wonderful world of customizing Android.

Nevertheless, since we are talking about a device that has probably cost you hundreds of dollars, here are some mandatory warnings. Rooting your HTC One X using this method will apparently bring out the “tampered” flag on the phone’s hboot. We’re not sure if there’s a way to remove the tampered flag. Anyway, that tampered flag may render your warranty void, so proceed only if you’re willing to accept this risk. While, for the well informed, the rooting method is easy enough to complete in a couple of minutes, that may not be the case for the more inexperienced ones.

The point is – please make sure you know all the risks associated with rooting the HTC One X before going through with it. Alternatively, you can just disable the bloatware if you can’t stand seeing those pesky preloaded apps in your app drawer.

As for the rest, enjoy your rooted HTC One X! This will hopefully remove some of the bitterness that HTC has caused by not providing an official bootloader unlocking tool for AT&T’s HTC One X.
