MultiROM Port Brings Multiboot Functionality to the HTC One X

Untitled1

One of the most popular methods of booting multiple ROMs on an Android device we’ve seen in the past few years is through MultiROM, a program originally developed by XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar for the Nexus 7. With a number of unofficial ports to multiple other devices such as the Sony Xperia M and the HTC Droid DNA, it’s with no surprise that we see another device has followed suit.

This time, an unofficial port arrives to to the HTC One X courtesy of XDA Recognized Developer and Contributor Thunder07. This port allows owners of the One X to load multiple ROMs without with the need to backup, wipe, and restore previous ROMs. It also allows you to restore backups of individual ROMs you’ve . . .

2012 HTC One X and One X+ Won’t Receive KitKat—Seriously!?

Capture

We’ve been talking about Android 4.4 updates, both official and unofficial, ever since KitKat was released alongside the Google Nexus 5 back in October of last year. And thankfully, the number of devices with official KitKat firmware releases is finally starting to gain some momentum. Despite this KitKat growth, many other devices have just recently received official Android 4.3 updates and/or leaks. While this isn’t ideal, at least some progress is being made towards relatively new firmwares.

However, there are some notable former flagships that are stuck in Android 4.2 land, and will never see any newer releases in official capacity. This unfortunately includes the HTC One X and One . . . READ ON »

Easily Dim the Capacitive Buttons on Many HTC Devices

Sceenshot-CapButnBrightnessPro-1.0.11-1

Hardware capacitive buttons seem to be a love-it-or-hate-it affair. While many of us seem to prefer the versatility of the on-screen buttons most commonly seen on modern Nexus devices, others instead favor the increased usable screen real estate made possible by having dedicated keys outside of the display.

If you happen to own an HTC device, you are probably a fan of dedicated hardware buttons. But that’s not to say that you can’t tweak them to make them work better for you. XDA Senior Member denversc created an app called Capacitive Buttons Brightness, which does… Well, you guessed it. It allows you to change the brightness of your capacitive buttons.

Currently, the app official. . . READ ON »

Do you consider yourself a die hard HTC fan? If so, we can’t blame you. Their latest flagship, the HTC One, has been a great success, combining great build quality, snappy internals, and a remarkable screen.

XDA Forum Member Sgt-Obst created and shared a collection of HTC-loving banners. Stylish and sleek, these 500 x 100 images are perfectly sized for use in your forum signature. Images for the HTC One, HTC One X, HTC One S, HTC One Mini, and HTC Sensation XE . . . READ ON »

Kernel Lighter Loads Kernels on Tegra 3 One X Away from PC

slide-1-white

Up until recently, loading kernels onto the Tegra 3-powered HTC One X has been a relatively difficult affair. This was due to the fact that unlike its Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered cousin (originally called the HTC One XL), the Tegra 3 variant has not received S-Off. While not everyone would be bothered by needing to be stationed at a traditional computer in order to proceed with kernel flashing via fastboot, it can’t hurt to have these restrictions lifted.

In order to get around the issue, XDA Recognized Developer Thunder07 first looked to kexec. The name should sound familiar, as it has been used countless times to bypass various security measures or add additional functionality to unlock. . . READ ON »

Make Games More Playable on the HTC One X with Game Modder

apkgamemodder

Over the last few months, we have been bringing news about the ongoing battle between users and gaming on the HTC One X. In short, the HTC One X seems to have issues with lackluster performance on games that should be a breeze for such a powerful device. One such solution, as linked above, was a CPU booster app. Now, there is a mod that will change the games themselves to work better on the One X.

XDA Recognized Contributor thunder07 released the mod, which is entitled APK Game Modder. It isn’t as its name may imply. There isn’t any game hacking to unlock infinite credits or special items early in the game. This mod is more for performance purposes only. As thunder07 explains:

HTC One X+ Receives Vanilla, CM10.1, and AOKP Android 4.2 Builds

onexplus

In most cases, users are just happy to get an AOSP-based ROM on their devices. Which flavor of AOSP is usually inconsequential, as just having a vanilla experience is more important than which specific vanilla experience. After all, most people consider true Android to be far better than any OEM skin. The HTC One X+ now has not only Android 4.2 AOSP, but also CyanogenMod 10.1, and Android 4.2-based AOKP.

XDA Recognized Contributor and Developer Lloir has released the CM10.1 and pure AOSP ROMs for the One X+. Presumably because much of the same source and proprietary binaries are shared between these releases, the number of things wrong with both ROMs is pretty much the same. As Lloir states:
