SmartSync for One X Fixes SmartSync Problem

By now everyone is aware of the HTC One X signal issues. What started as a grassroots movement here on XDA has blown up into users finding that they have an issue and coming together to do something about it. However, the hardware is not the only issue causing WiFi signal problems. There is also a software version causing much the same malady for HTC One X that is killing WiFi and data signal and not letting it come back.

The problem is that between the hours of midnight and 7AM, the phone goes into what is called SmartSync Mode. This mode disables the WiFi and Data connections after 15 minutes of inactivity to save the user battery. The issue is that it doesn’t turn back on until a user physically uses the device. This can cause a number of issues through the night, as users won’t receive emails or updates on any applications during this time frame if SmartSync has kicked on. For users who depend on their smartphones to be always available for communication, this can be a serious problem.

XDA Recognized Developer j4n87 has developed an application that will turn this feature off entirely. It’s very simple and easy to use. The best part? It works for non-rooted and bootloader locked phones. So no one needs to break warranty in order to fix this problem. Furthermore, some users may mistakenly believe they have the hardware problem when they actually have this software issue instead, which can be easily fixed without performing difficult hardware modifications.
