Not too long ago, we reported on the AT&T and Rogers One X receiving a one-click root and bootloader unlock courtesy of XDA Forum Moderator and Recognized Developer kennethpenn. What do users inevitably want next? A nice, touch-based recovery, of course!
The vast majority of our readers have either heard of or are currently using Team Win Recovery Project. For those who aren’t familiar, please refer to our previous article covering the release of the touch-based version 2.1. In short, TWRP 2.1 delivers a completely touch-based and extremely user-friendly recovery experience that is as feature packed as it is fun to use.

In many cases, getting tethering to work on a device requires someone to hack the original, carrier-supplied tethering app, re-releasing it for users to install and use. While this works, it often takes a while for the hacks to pop up and sometimes they can be a bit finicky. Thankfully, AT&T and Rogers HTC One X users now have a simple one-clock solution that restores the original Android tethering functionality that was originally introduced in Froyo, rather than relying on a modified version of the carrier-supplied app.

With the resurgence of HTC development around XDA due in no small part to S-Off being achieved, HTC devices are enjoying more freedom and users are having more fun than they have in a long time. With some devices already getting their rounds of SuperCID, it was only a matter of time before newer HTC devices got the same. And now for users of the AT&T and Rogers HTC One X, you can now share in the SuperCID glory.
For those who are unfamiliar, SuperCID gives you some pretty fun freedoms—not the smallest of which is being able to flash any ROM by any carrier onto your device. This is thus quite useful for ROM porting and, if you’re careful, it can be fun to see what works and what doesn’t work from other s. . . READ ON »

One of the most frustrating things when owning a phone as powerful as the HTC One X is playing a game the phone should be able to handle with ease, and ending up with nothing but lag. The experience, while frustrating, is one phone users know all too well, as this can even happen to dual core devices. While mobile phones aren’t bought primarily as gaming consoles, that doesn’t mean people don’t want them to act like one sometimes.
Thankfully, there’s a fix. XDA Recognized Contributor hamdir has written up a tutorial for users to explain why the One X occasionally stutters on games it should easily run and how to fix it. The process is simple and requires basically no knowledge of anything. . . READ ON »

Users rocking the AT&T variant of the HTC One X may be feeling a little left out of the HTCDev party right about now, given that the device cannot be unlocked using officially endorsed methods. Luckily, however, the developers here on XDA hate being locked down just about as much as they hate stifled innovation. To that end, XDA Senior Member grankin01 has come up with an easy-to-follow guide that will take you through the steps required to obtain HTCDev unlock on your AT&T One X.
The gist of the workaround is that you first dump an image of your /dev/block/mmcblk0p4 partition. After that is done, simply open the file in a hex editor, look for a certain offset, and modify the CID to read as the Rogers var. . . READ ON »

It feels as thought the quest for better GPS reception and faster GPS locks has been ongoing for a very long time. However, Android users can actually do something about it, as fixes and tweaks to improve GPS have been forthcoming on virtually every rooted Android plagued by GPS woes. While not strictly having any GPS issues to begin with, the HTC One S now joins the fray with a few tweaks to help improve GPS for users.
The tweak, originally seen on the Desire HD and One X, comes from XDA Senior Member MacroHD. It is available in the form of an easily recovery-flashable update.zip. Users who use this may not see an immediate improvement to their GPS, but MacroHD assures users that it is, in fact, faster. One . . . READ ON »

For those unfamiliar with the popular Super and Ultra Smooth Rosie mods, they are modified rosie.apk files that flatten the images of HTC Sense to improve battery life and performance. For those running newer versions of HTC Sense, keep your finger on the screen as you switch screens, and do it slowly. You’ll notice that HTC Widgets will kind of pop out. While it is very cool—when you notice it’s there—it does contribute to that bloat that many Sense fans complain about. And with the images flattened, it does help lighten the load up a little bit and may be enough to reduce any lag you are experiencing.
The big difference between Super and Ultra is that Ultra Smooth flattens the images com. . . READ ON »

Sometime in December of last year, the US Court and the ITC (International Trade Commission) made a monumentally bad call by granting Apple a victory—a major one at that—in the so-called “patent wars” that have been raging for the last couple of years between smartphone giants HTC and Apple. Essentially, the victory from Apple involved the ability of a browser to be able to recognize alphanumeric entries in a webpage and link them for other purposes.
One of the most common uses of this functionality is the phone number recognition, where if you select text containing a phone number and tap it, the browser will automatically launch the phone application with the number you are trying . . . READ ON »

While some users enjoy Beats Audio, many others enjoy having more control over their music. OEM music settings like Beats Audio and Sony XLoud have made many users happy, but others still believe that they should have more control over the equalizer.
Unfortunately, on devices such as the popular HTC One X, popular equalizer apps such as Volume+ don’t work as they should—until now, that is. XDA Senior Member Meltus has identified the problem as some coding issues with the One X’s audio_effects.conf. Meltus then created a modified audio_effects.conf that fixes the problems with Volume+ compatibility, and perhaps other equalizers as well. Says Meltus:
