Bootloader Unlock and Root Tutorial for the HTC One X+

Update: This method is causing many bricked devices. We strongly encourage holding off for the time being. As such, the link has been removed from this article.

HTC’s newest flagship phone, the HTC One X+ is a beast. It has a 4.7″ HD screen, and it packs a 1.7GHz quad-core processor. Word is that it cooks bacon too. There is a lot to like about it, and there is a lot to dislike about it, like the non-removable battery. However, one thing no one can say is that it doesn’t have root and bootloader unlock tutorials.

XDA Recognized Contributor shubhamchamaria (good luck pronouncing that one, Jordan!) has released a tutorial that helps users get their One X+ rooted and bootloader unlocked. Unfortunately, it’s the HTCDev unlock method and not S-Off, but it’s still better than locked.

The HTCDev unlock method is the usual method—using the official website, getting the unlock token, and using it to unlock the bootloader. For root, there is a script that applies the proper root files and SuperSU for all your root needs.

Unfortunately, there is no custom recovery yet. That’s likely the next step on the development to-do list. Then, it’ll be time for ROM flashing and more modding fun. For those who just want some root access for now, check out the root thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
