HTC One X for AT&T and Rogers gets rooted in one click


Even though AT&T has restricted the bootloader on the HTC One X and prevented the source code from being release so far, developers have still found a way to root the device, along with the version that Rogers is selling in Canada.

Although the directions given by kennethpenn seem simple enough, you should know that root is not necessarily for the faint of heart, and you take responsibility if you do anything that messes up your phone. Now that that’s out of the way, all you really have to do is download the HTC drivers, along with a small script, plug your phone into your computer, and double-click the script to run it.

Even though we can’t quite flash custom ROMs yet, root has its advantages: you can download root-only apps like WiFi Tether or Titanium Backup. You can finally completely remove all the bloat that carriers like to install, instead of just disabling it. Basically, you have full control over your device.

Full instructions can be found at the link below. Good luck, and happy rooting!
