It’s hard to remember a time when there was such excitement over a new device as now with the newly launched HTC One X. The section is on fire, and many lucky members already have their devices in hand. Others, such as yours truly, are still waiting for the mailman to knock on our doors.
For those lucky enough to already have the device in hand, we now have root, recovery, and custom ROM. According to XDA Forum Member paulobrien, there is no official ClockworkMod recovery available, so in the meantime, he created an interim unofficial CWM Touch release that allows one to aquire permanent root. It is important to note that for this process, one must be unlocked via htcdev. Custom ROMs have also shown up, with XDA Forum Member Adjust bringing us the first, which includes a stock ROM (0.96.401.2) with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, of course HTC Sense 4.0, tweaked BBDA (BeatsByDreAudio), no USB debugging in pull-down, Bravia Engine, xLoud, modified Signal, and modified WiFi.
