All-In-One Toolkit for the HTC One X
Toolkits have been popping up left and right on XDA recently, and for good reason. They are generally very helpful and give users the ability to use a plethora of tools within the confines of a single application. Typically, most toolkits include basic features such as gaining root access, flashing a custom recovery, and unrooting. Some, however, include much more than that.
Now, the HTC One X has such a toolkit. The toolkit features range from common to unique and, based on version, include:
Flash Kernels & Modules
Reboot The Phone
Reboot Into Recovery/Bootloader
Kernel Repack – Phone on Android with USB Debug Enabled – No Need For The Recovery
Repacked output Format Kernel.Ramdisk.IMG
One Click Root
Reworked Module Flasher
Decreased/Removed some delays
Fixed Faux Module Unzipping Problem
Added RUU Zip Flashing Ability – For Advanced Users
Developed by XDA Senior Member thunder07, the toolkit fills the usual niche of having one-click root and flashing recoveries. It also contains some unique features, such as kernel and module flashing and an RUU zip flashing utility. The broad utility of this toolkit makes it a must have for One X owners.
