Disaster Recovery for the HTC One X
One of the first things any device forum needs is a guide or tutorial to help get users back on track who have messed up their phone in some way. With so many ways to mess up a phone, there’s no way to make a guide that can handle any situation. That said, it never hurts to cover the most common problems.
It is with this in mind that XDA Forum Member Setsuna666 has written up a tutorial based on the individual tutorials of other XDA users for the HTC One X. Dubbed Disaster Recovery, it’ll help users who have the most common problems get back on track. The tutorial covers many of the basics, such as what to do when users bootloop, when they’re stuck at the HTC splash screen or even providing the link for if users need to re-lock their bootloaders. It also provides important tools like a RUU for restoring the HTC One X to the stock ROM. Moreover, it gives users quick links to the #htc-one-x channel on Freenode for immediately help and to the XDA HTC One X Q&A forum in case a user has a problem that is not listed in this already extensive FAQ.
For more information and all the help you could ever need, hit up the original thread and get your phone fixed.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
