Smooth and Ultra Smooth Rosie Ported to AT&T HTC One X
It’s been a little while since we last visited with the smooth and ultra smooth Rosie mods originally released for the International One X. Since then, the modification has been included in recent releases of Leedroid tweaks. This means that it’s available for pretty much any HTC device with access to Leedroid tweaks.
For those who don’t know what Smooth and Ultra Smooth Rosie is, it is a method of flattening the images on your home screens. As a result, fewer system resources are used drawing it and this gives users a faster, more responsive launcher experience. While it may be better suited for older HTC devices that suffer from lag, users of the One X—both International and AT&T—have reported performance improvements immediately after installing.
Having made its way around the forums, it was a little bit of a surprise that one of the first ports wasn’t to the AT&T and Rogers HTC One X. This has been rectified, however. Ported to the AT&T One X by XDA Senior Member sk806, the mod comes in two versions—standard and landscape-capable. The system app is easy to install, and just requires a simple flash from a custom recovery.

But it'll be a long time...
