HTC One X Kernel Installer Makes Switching Kernels Easy

Kernel

The most common way to install a kernel is to flash it in a custom recovery. There are a couple of notable exceptions, but otherwise the process is pretty straightforward. However, some users may fall to a common malady known as laziness. Now, HTC One X users have an easy way of switching kernels.

XDA Senior Member maseo has created an installer for Windows PCs that will install a kernel from the computer instead of from recovery. While it unfortunately means that you must be connected to a PC, this makes switching kernels even easier than it was before by automating the entire process. The installer will push the kernel to your One X, reboot, and install the kernel.

It is pretty easy to use. Maseo has created a Dro. . . READ ON »

Jelly Bean Ported to the International One X

slide-1-white

Developers these days are fast. Many flagship devices are rooted before they’re even released to the general public for consumption. In the spirit of speed (and being amazing), XDA Senior Member tgascoigne has ported an initial release of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the international version of the HTC One X!

This very alpha release is based off of the GSM Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean image, and so far:

Known issues
•Wifi
•Audio
•Camera
•Probably more

Remember this is an intial port, and there is a lot still to be done before this ROM is a daily driver. If you feel like you have what it takes to help out with this project, or you’re just looking to play with an intial port of Jelly Bean, head on over to the o. . . READ ON »

SmartSync for One X Fixes SmartSync Problem

SmartSync

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. Thi. . .

DSP Manager Brought to Galaxy S III and Possibly Many More

DSP

DSP Manager, the well known music equalizer application usually found in CyanogenMod ROMs, has made its way around as a standalone application for some time. While it’s been around for a while, it’s still one of the premier equalizer applications for Android and it’s a welcome addition to any device.

DSP Manager is now available on the Samsung Galaxy S III, and is possibly compatible with many, many other devices. Brought to the device by XDA Senior Member apascual89 from the HTC One X section, users may be alarmed when the installation process mentions HTC’s flagship phone. However, this is normal because the recovery-flashable update.zip contains all the required lib. . . READ ON »

HTC One X Gets Root for 1.85 While Supplies Last

One X rooted

The HTC One X has had its share of problems with some hardware issues and lawsuits. Along with the rough debut and hardware issues, another problem facing HTC One X users is rooting the latest firmware. The current method requires users to downgrade their firmware, then root. This process can take some time and can be potentially dangerous if something flashes incorrectly. The One X now has a root method for the 1.85 firmware, but users are advised to use it quickly because the door could be closed at any minute.

The exploit was posted by XDA Senior Member beaups and is only usable for the AT&T and Rogers version of the One X. As stated, the root method will likely not last forever, as beaups states:

Hardware Fault Found in the HTC One X Causes Bad Signal

HTC

Following the release of HTC’s flagship One series, owners have begun to notice some early inconveniences—things not working quite like they should, and the phone having issues with things that shouldn’t be an issue. With the quality control of HTC already in question, XDA Senior Member bigoliver has decided to showcase one of the biggest hardware faults of the HTC One X. It’s a pretty bad one too.

Some One X users have been struggling with signal strength, particularly WiFi signal strength, where a few have even experienced complete signal drops. Sadly this results froman issue with the antenna of the HTC One X. As bigoliver explains:

How to Remove HTCLinkify Easily

htc rezound

For the unaware, HTCLinkify is an application on some HTC devices implemented to  bypass a US Customs import ban. Essentially, it changes the way HTC phones handle alphanumeric entries on-devices.

Since then, developers and users alike have been dancing around whether or not to remove HTCLinkify. While it hasn’t been removed in many ROMs yet, many users have requested its removal. With that in mind, XDA Senior Member AshtonTS posted a simple guide for the HTC Rezound to completely remove HTCLinkify. As luck would have it, the guide is actually compatible with any HTC device with HTCLinkify.

The guide itself is simple. The first step is removing the HTCLinkify apk file using your favorite root ex. . . READ ON »

Mac-Based Bootloader Unlock and SuperCID Script for the AT&T and Rogers One X

Mac Android

Unfortunately, Mac users sometimes don’t get the same amount of love as Windows and Linux fans when it comes to Android development. Tool kits, root methods, and other tweaks almost always start out as Windows- or Linux-based, leaving Mac users waiting, using virtual machines, or using their friends’ computers. Fortunately, the most important methods and tools eventually see Mac releases.

This is now the case for the AT&T and Rogers HTC One X, where the popular bootloader unlock and SuperCID script has been ported to Mac. Released by XDA Senior Member jnichols959, the script is identical to the Windows and Linux versions. The only real difference being that it’s now compatibl. . . READ ON »

EVO 4G LTE Dual Core Tweak Ported to One S, AT&T / Rogers One X

homepage-image-02

We recently brought you coverage of dual-core tweaks  for the HTC EVO 4G LTE. For those who don’t remember, the modification boosted performance by forcing the device’s second core to remain on at all times. Given the performance increases seen in certain situations, you would assume that this would be ported to its sibling devices featuring the same SoC.

XDA Recognized Developer -viperboy- has done exactly this for users of the HTC One S. Once the One S users got in the action, it couldn’t possibly be long before AT&T and Rogers One X owners wanted in as well. Worry not, as -viperboy- explains:

Hello everybody, I was asked to bring this mod over from the EVO 4G LTE section and since th
