We have a new tool you can try on the HTC One X running Android 4.1.5 Jelly Bean. This tool is free to use, you only have to download it and then use it. If you want something that’s easy to use, this method is the one for you.
If you have no clue what a rooting is all about, we’ll present you with its advantages. First off, the phone has access to customization options and root-only applications. The procedure will also deliver custom ROMs and new features. Not to mention battery improvement and superior performance on all accounts. No bloatware will annoy you while using your phone.
Build ID for this procedure and handset is this one: ALPS.ICS2.MP.V1.20. However, you can use this tool for different Build IDs as well.
Your device sports this CPU: quad-core 1.5 GHz. After the rooting, this processor will be loads improved. That and the other pros are delivered via SRSRoot tool. This is a great method, as we already mentioned. Not only because of the novelties it brings, but also because it combines many advantages. It comes already powered by a SRS Server and there are many Android versions it offers support for (from 1,5 to Jelly Bean 4.2).
The SRSR Server mention means that you can root the HTC One X without flashing the phone. The manufacturers this tool is compatible with are many. You can also use the SRSRoot method if you plan on unrooting the device; the unrooting happens through one-click.
The procedures of this kind are also responsible for bricked devices. The smartphone you currently use will, as always, gain superuser and admin level permission. And use the goodies we told you about before. But the rooting will also mess with the handset if the wrong model is used with this software. Then there’s the fact that the phone’s warranty is going to be deleted from it. Be careful and use this guide if you want a rooted HTC One X.
After you know what you’re getting into, there’s one more thing to consider. And that is the following: perform the rooting after your smartphone’s ready. To get it ready, do this:

- make several backups to save your phone’s data from harm during or after the rooting;
- a full NANDroid backup has to be created;
- USB Debugging must be enabled on the smartphone;
- install USB drivers on your notebook for the HTC One X;
- your notebook’s security programs have to be disabled;
- your handset’s security programs must also be turned off;

Step by step instructions
When you’re done with these necessary pre-requisites, you should begin the rooting.
