HTC One X Completely Stock ROM and Rooting Tools Available Before Release
In preparation for the launch of the HTC One X, XDA Recognized Developer mike1986. has released a purely stock ROM based on the previously leaked RUU. The release consists of simply extracting the system image and repacking it as a recovery flashable file, which may help those lucky enough to be rocking demo devices.
Since the ROM is purely stock, it is not rooted, but it comes with the possibility to root thanks to an optional secondary download, which adds superuser and busybox. The build information is as follows:
HTC update build 0.96.401.2
Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3
HTC Sense 4.0
Release status: userdebug
The developer mentions that this is userdebug version, so an odexed version is not available yet.
This is the latest *stock* Ice Cream Sandwich & HTC Sense 4.0 UI build 0.96.401.2 for HTC One X (codename: Endeavor)
Latest SuperUser with su binary
BusyBox with installation command
For both odexed and deodexed variants
For all ROMs posted in this thread
Continue on to the ROM thread for more details.
