Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Coming To HTC One X, One S, One XL Soon
Here’s some real good news for HTC smartphone users. The company has confirmed that it will update three of its flagship smartphone namely HTC One X, One S and One XL to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean soon, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.

Recently, a flurry of toolkits has popped up on the XDA Developers forum, thanks to rising demand from smartphone users. These toolkits integrate multiple features into a single frame, making them both powerful and helpful, particularly for novice users. In fact, smartphone users with little knowledge about rooting could still gain root access, flash a custom recovery or even unroot a device, thanks to the simple but powerful All-In-One (AIO) toolkits with Graphical User Interface (GUI).

Once rooted, the device is capable of installing third-party applications and tweaks and the latest smartphone to benefit from this is the HTC One X, thanks to the efforts of XDA senior member - thunder07.

The One X AIO toolkit features a range of common yet useful modules based on each version upgrade, as follows:

  • v1.0
    • Flash Kernels & Modules
    • Flash Recoveries
    • Reboot The Phone
    • Reboot Into Recovery/Bootloader
  • v1.1
    • Kernel Repack - Phone on Android with USB Debug Enabled - No Need For The Recovery
  • v1.2
    • MultiKernel Repack
    • Repacked output Format Kernel.Ramdisk.IMG
  • v1.3
    • One Click Root
  • v1.4
    • Reworked Module Flasher
    • Decreased/Removed some delays
    • Fixed Faux Module Unzipping Problem
  • v1.5
    • Added RUU Zip Flashing Ability - For Advanced Users

The One X toolkit supports regular functions such as one-click root and flash recoveries, besides adding advanced features like kernel and module flashing, as well as RUU zip flashing capability. The toolkit also adds bug-fixes for Module Unzipping Problem.

Installation Requirements

  • Unlocked Bootloader
  • CWM Recovery (Other recovery tools are still untested) - to perform rooting with CWM recovery follow the instructions given here.
  • USB Debug Enabled (Select Settings > Developers Tools > USB Debug)

Perform a Nandroid backup to avoid data loss before proceeding to the One-Click rooting procedure for your device. Some of the actions with the tool would require Recovery.IMG, which can be downloaded from here.
