All-in-One Toolkit for the HTC One X+
It’s always helpful when an all-in-one toolkit gets released. Not only do they make a number of tasks much easier, but they enable those who aren’t so technologically savvy to have some fun with their devices.

- Unlock Bootloader (Must place Unlock_code.bin in the folder)
– Install Recoveries

– Link to the One X+ Development thread
– Boot Into Recovery
– Boot into Bootloader
– Relock Bootloader (must be in fastboot)
– APK Batch Installer (Credits to hamsteyr)
– Install HTC Drivers
Most users who have used it have had only good things to say. However, there are some early issues. If you’re running Windows 8, the toolkit won’t be able to install the device drivers. Additionally, this will not work for the AT&T One X+ due to some issues with the bundled recovery. So if you have the AT&T version, stay off this toolkit for right now.
For additional info, check out the toolkit thread.
The toolkit has been updated to work with AT&T and Telus devices now.
