Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise.

Fastboot Automation Tool for the International One X
Fastboot is one of the most powerful tools on any Android device. With it and ADB, you can literally flash, push, or pull anything from your rooted device. It is even useful for obtaining information that is otherwise difficult to get. Combine this functionality into the convenience of a one-click tool, and you’ve got a pretty solid piece of work that anyone should have. International HTC One X owners now have such a tool.
XDA Forum Member TeAm HeX has released the Automated Fastboot Commands tool for the HTC One X. The purpose of the tool is to allow users to flash things and obtain information using Fastboot commands quickly and easily. The features include:
Flash CWM Recovery
Flash CWM Recovery – USB/ADB Working
Boot CWM Recovery
Flash TWRP Recovery 2.1.2
Flash TWRP Recovery 2.1.6
Flash HTC Stock Recovery 1.28
Flash HTC Stock Recovery 1.29
Flash Interim Recovery
Flash Doom Recovery – Sort Of
Reboot – Normal
Reboot – Bootloader
This is something that every HTC One X owner can use. This is especially true for obtaining CID and MID info, as well as relocking the bootloader, as these are often required for other procedures.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
