AT&T HTC One X Acquires Root

All hail root! Recently, it was announced that HTC would not be supporting the AT&T version of the HTC One X (known internationally as the One XL) through the HTCDev website. The reasoning was shaky at best, as HTC mentioned having restrictions. Hopefully this doesn’t signal the slow reversion back to the locked bootloader days. Thankfully, however, the device was rooted anyway.

XDA Forum Moderator and Recognized Developer kennethpenn released a root method for the AT&T One X. Using this method, which is an exploit by XDA Senior Member sparkym3, users can obtain root access. This means being able to do things like install BusyBox, Titanium Backup, and other root-only apps. But so far, we don’t have a custom recovery, and the bootloader remains locked, so we can’t expect truly custom ROMs or kernels just yet. Still, this is a great progress over not being able to unlock the device at all. And hopefully, we won’t have to wait long for even more customization.

To get started, head over to the original thread. To prevent problems problems, it’s highly recommended to read through the entire thread, as posters have been very helpful in providing tips for those having issues.
