    Hey Max, I’ve been watching you on YT for a while and now I have a problem with a device I’m hoping you can help me with.I just got an HTC Vivid and I unlocked the bootloaders and flashed a recovery then rooted it. I then tried to flash an ICS update which had a conflict with either the kernel or the recovery I was running. Now when I turn it on it flashes the white HTC screen and then goes black and doesn’t do anything else. Ive since learned the right way to fix it. I relocked it to update the hboot which worked fine then I go to unlock it again and it freezes on the unlock screen. On my phone I choose yes to unlock the bootloaders then press the power button and nothing happens. It doesn’t reboot like its should. Ive tried it about 6 times and it never gets passed that screen. Any help would be great. Thanks

    Hi Max,

    I just bought a T-Mobile HTC One (US Version – dual core), and want to root. Do you think this information will be released soon?

    I also use a MAC. Is there a way for MAC users to unlock and root phones without having to borrow a PC for this?

    Love your site and thanks for your help!

      Did you make a backup of your ROM? If not, I will have another instruction on unrooting with firmware soon.

  12. hassan says:

    i cant install new updates on my rooted htc one x.

    • admin says:

      Do you have unlocked bootloader? That might be why, you have to relock it I think to get OTA updates.

    Hi Max,

    I have a Canadian One X and when I followed your instructions to unlock the bootloader, my bootloader says “tampered” on top of the “unlocked” and I think it won’t allow me to flash anything because of it. I can’t load clockwork recovery touch no matter what. What can I do? I can’t flash anything even though I unlocked the bootloader….please help.

    btw, your video says to type in ./fastboot-mac flash recovery r (tab) but since there are two clockwork img files, the mac just leaves (file name version – 5. -blank- and doesn’t fill in the rest of the filename and I think you should clear it up in your video.

  16. Eduardo says:

    Hey man, I was looking around trying to find out if any of the ROMs out there for the HOX have USB OTG Host mode enabled. Do you know of any? Or a way to enable on my rooted stock One X.

    Hey Max !
    I´m goingt to buy a HTC ONE X in a few Days and of course i want to root it and use costum roms
    But I read there are some problems with the one click method !
    I read on some website there is another method, you have to unlock your bootloader first and then root it !
    I am going to buy it in Autria, it´s not branded, and it´s the european version i think ! [Austria is a small country next to Germany ;D]

    Thanks for your help !

  19. Mr.5106411 says:

    Hello Max,
    I ‘m a Fan of you. I need help, my HTC One X was rooted before doing the update. After that lost the Root, but still installed the SU. I have tried to re-root but I have not succeeded, I get a message like this:

    * deamon not runnig. starting it now *
    *deamon stared successfully *

    And it left frizzy… What I can do?

    Thanks pal,


  30. Gagandeep says:

    tell me one thing … some site says that after unlocking from htcdev , the warranty of phone is no more left ….
    plz reply soon
    thanks in advance

    • Max says:

      there’s a way to un-void the warranty by use of RUU but it’s a complicated process and I am trying to simplify it soon.

  31. Adgar Marks says:

    Hi to all,

    i just bought a new HTC One X and the battery life time is unfortently too short. Is it possible to extend it by flashing new rom to it(hopfully the new roms do some bugfix)? Is it possible to reinstall the original rom of HTC One X, in case of a problem (like in iPhone)? Which rom is consider a good one (concerning batter life time)?

    Max said in his videos something about international HTC One X, how do i know if my HTC One X is international or not?
