    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

  15. Alan says:

    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.

    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?


  32. imran says:

    Hi Max,

    Bro , i had some issues with my HTC after rooting , so i re-locked and downloaded the RUU and flashed my mobile . it is working fine. But when i go into recovery mode it appears in pink relocked , i am worried HTC will not fix my phone even though it is in warranty. Any fix for this.

  33. Anders says:

    Hello everyone,
    I have tried to browse around this site a bit, but didn’t find the answer to my questions. I am the happy owner of a brand new HTC One X. Two questions really. I just checked and I have exactly the same problem as this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9CYqAqPLS4, trouble that is with audio/video sync going bad when a text message arrives. Is there a custom ROM that solves this problem, maybe they all do? If so, would this or these also allow for a more continuous video capture? As far as I have seen the video shoots for a given period, even if the phone is charging and there is plenty more space on the SD card, and then it stops. You can start a new recording if you want to, but you need to do it manually. I understand if the files get too big, but how about just continue capturing a new one when the first is written to the card unless I say stop. Is there such a thing?

  34. Jean says:

    Hey Max sorry to bother you i did a little research of how to fix my one x because i flashed a international version rom while on att i know stupid of me i didnt do the proper reading before flashing and my phone is hard bricked wont even turn on is there a place or someone that fixes these kind of phone when i connect to the computer i get a qhsusb_dload reading on the device manager but it doesnt recognize any help would be appreciated ? thanks in advance i dont want to send it to htc cause i got a new one through insurance saying that i lost mine

    • Max says:

      Do you have insurance? There’s usually way to unbrick that but it’s not out yet for AT&T One X.

      • Jean says:

        I do have insurance thats how i was able to get a new phone i said i lost the other one because i thought insurance wouldnt cover for it once they found out that i had a unlocked bootlaoder and a custom rom u know so yeah thanks for the info ill just wait for the method to fix it then……. do u think they will be able to fix it at a little local android iphone repair store ?

  35. jamel says:

    Can u enable T-Mobile 3G/4G HSPA+ on your AT&T One X unlocked

  36. Jose says:

    Hello Max, do i need to unlock the bootloader to install a CUSTOM ROM ? I really do not want to mess up with my warranty on at&t . Thanks!

  37. Cullen says:

    Hey max I rooted my att one x today, and then later my phone all of the sudden try’s to reboot but can’t get passed the beats audio and one start screen :(. It’s not getting passed it, and I didn’t unlock the bootloader yet so I’m not sure what to do. I’m new with rooting please help!

  38. Rob says:


    I Rooted my phone with the help of your videos. After that i installed the Leedroid Rom (the one u make a video about) and everything works good. But i want now a different rom on it because of the firmware update. the only problem is that my phone won’t go in the recovery mode. when I try to go in the recovery mode ( power and volume down bottom or the restart in recovery mode by leedroid. ) the HTC startup screen will appear and then a black android phone with a red triangle on it /_\ with a ! in it. and it stays on that till i restart it again. u now what to do?
    thnx a lot!



    • Max says:

      You have to reflash recovery just like you did when you rooted. And also enter recovery right away as new software updates will overwrite the recovery with stock android recovery, which is what you are seeing with the red triangle.

  39. Viktor says:

    Hi Max,

    Now I install JB 10 Preview 10 ROm from here. but now I just wanted to know what is the different JB Preview and Alpha ? now latest alpha is 8 ? so any update JB Rom from here ?


  45. Pepe Osorio says:

    Hi Max,
    I am a beginner in the world of ROMS and need help trying to fix a brand new HTC One X after I unsuccessfully attempted to flash a ROM and Bricked (on and off loop) the phone.

    Here are the steps that led to the bricked phone:
    1. I tried to flash the Android Revolution HD 9.4.2 Rom but neglected to first install C lockworkMod Recovery (stupid me).
    2. To flash the Android Revolution HD 9.4.2, I followed the instructions from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1562603. Everything went well until I realized during the first boot attempt that my phone was actually β€œlocked”—until then, I believed Amazon had sold me an unlocked device. When I entered β€œrecovery” the phone went black and eventually showed the small image of a phone and a red triangle with a red exclamation point. Instead of getting to the next phase of the flashing the phone just restarted. It still worked fine after this first attempt.
    3. On the second attempt (also without previously installing ClockworkMod Recovery) at flashing the ROM and after having successfully unlocked the phone (via htcdev.com), the phone did the same exact thing when I entered recovery (it showed the black screen with the small phone and the red triangle with the exclamation sign). But now, instead of just restarting, the phone began to restart and turn off in a loop (bricked?) without ever actually fully initiating.
    4. Now the phone just starts and turns off in a loop until the battery is completely discharged. I have been searching for a week how to fix the problem with no luck (I am really hoping that it is fixable as this is the nicest phone I have ever bought). The only thing that I can still do is to access the boot mode by pressing the power button and the down volume button at the same time.

    Original Software: ICS (4.0.3) Sense (4.0). One X: the International version of the phone with quad processor and 32 gb ram.

    Do you think you could help me with this or direct me to a page that explains step by step how to reach a solution (provided that there is actually one). I am way over my head with this but I am willing to learn. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this.
    Thank You.

    • Max says:

      You can put it in fastboot mode and do:
      fastboot erase cache

      Then enter recovery.

      The HTC One X devices get into this corrupt cache mode where you cannot enter recovery and end up in bootloop unless you do clear cache using the fastboot command mentioned above.

      Once in recovery, re-install another ROM and you should be good to go.

  46. Anaz Ashraff says:

    I love the review you keep on the custom roms. I would like to say good job and keep it up!

    I like the ViperXROM. And am considering rooting my One X with it, what I would like to know is,
    1. Is the HTC Sense on the ViperROM the same as the original?
    2. Do the beats option work on Viper?

          I really need your advice cus i dont want to do anything wrong.

            • Emil says:


              i succeeded to root my htc and im really happy. im fucking high on android now because of you man.

              Its really fast and tried to play games and no lag at all, so fucking happy. With quadrant i got 5100 score, in stock i got over 6000.

              But the score really dosnt show the real power. with stock everything was laggy with high score.. shouldent be so!

              I had to flash the boot img to make it work because I stuck in boot loop.

              with this kernel could not overclock the HOX, but you dont have to cus it is all ready so powerfull.

              My last quastion to you Max, are there any ways to put my HTC in stock mode for warrany ? Or are there way to do it today?

              Thank you Max for everything and you epic videos. You are so high on android ! πŸ™‚

  66. Rafael says:

    Hi Max !
    I just bought an HTC One X on the AT&T version. Where i can found the HTC One X international Rom (OEM) hehe .. I do not want to loose the sense … If it is not possible which rom do you recomend ? Thanks in advance Rafael

    • Chanaka says:

      Hey Rafael,
      i dont think this is possible man…coz system config is too deffrent in those tow devices (international and AT&T) way dont you try out custom rom like CM 10…its awesome. u will never turn for the SENSE again πŸ˜‰

  67. chris says:

    do you do repairs i have loaded the wrong kernel and cannot mount my htc one x
    my computer just will not see the one x at all. Meaning i cant follow a lot of the fix proceedures

  68. Gabriel says:

    Hi Max,

    I am a HTC One X user and found that the bty life and wireless on my phone pretty sluggish. Am thinking of trying out one of the roms. Which one do you recommend since there are pretty on your website?

    My phone is rooted but it is not in factory mode, meaning it had things like contact list, notes, calender, etc. If I install a custom rom, will all this be wipe out.

    Thank you.

    Hi Max,
    I updated my Phone from ICS to JB, When i connect my mobile to PC it says MTP (Media transfer protocol) driver not found. I installed latest HTC sync manager and while installing it says HTC device driver installer didn’t install properly and it wsd unsuccesfull. I also tried installing using HTC_Driver_64.zip as in video, but that also didn’t work and one more query should i backup my apps before rooting my phone , please reply as i am new to this since titanium backup shows root failed and i cannot back up my apps.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hey, just wondering are u going to make a tutorial for rooting htc one x+ and installing the recovery and custom roms?

  71. Barton Karel says:

    Hi Maxi at step 44 when I have a data recovery so when I put it as my screen goes black and appears to me on it over the mobile phone and a red triangle and a red exclamation mark and can not alone is what will help you restart your phone (I have followed the steps of the masses on the Web) do not know what should I do with my phone rootnul? Thank you for your answer

  72. Fahad says:

    Max can you tell the way to recover our stock ROM before rooting or a way to extract our stock RUU from ONE X because my last ONE X got bricked because I messed up its kernel and I didn’t have its stock ROM backup and couldn’t find its RUU on any site..So If you can tell me how to secure my ROM so if I messed during the custom ROM I have a backup..After that I will root my new ONE X…

  73. Chanaka says:

    Hey Max, cant we unlock HTC ONE X (AT&T) bootloader from directly HTC Developer guide? if cant can u plz tel me wat is the reason…

  74. Matt Mace says:

    Hi Max,
    Thanks for your video showing how to unlock bootloader on my htc one x using a mac, the instructions were so easy to follow it was great especially for me as i am not particularly technically minded. I was wondering if you have a similar video showing how to install cyanogenmod 10 preview with jelly bean for htc one x again using a mac, as all instructions out there are 1, difficult to follow and 2, require windows.
    Thanks in advance

    just got the HTC one X for christmas and i was playing around with it and following your steps to root it..after differents techniques found that the your newist post was the one… the onexattnew.. ok so went through all the steps right, and have now have a rooted phone, with the bootloader unlocked.. wanted to go to the next step and install a dif rom,, the CM10.. for android 4.2 found the nightly build evita? for this model of their website… i tried following your other tutorial on how to install new roms.. but at the steps where you install the cmclockwork bootloader it doesnt seem to want to work. it just traps my phone on a boot buckel..
    so i went back to the other bootloader that comes with your att new zip.. and restores the phone back to rooted vanilla version.. i also tried installing the rom from that .. and seems to work ok.. at least says success! but when i reboot the cyanogenmod splash screen pops up .. it just gets stuck booting.. so again recovered to the default rooted system… but is there a way.. to get cyanogen10 working on the htc one x? can you point me the right mod?.. i am a bit lost on this..

    Hi Max,
    As an update to my previous post, I managed to get the phone working, after restarting into TWRP, then clean Cashe and Dalvik yet again. This did it for me, thanks! Now, I discover a problem with the Camera. I t doesn’t seem to work at all. Sometimes it snaps photos, but 9/10 tries, it locks/freezes up the phone. The only way I could get it back on is after a reset. Any ideas or an update? If this is the status right now, I will have to (unfortunately), go back to a stock ROM. Using my camera is vital for me.
    Thanks and great job otherwise!

    Hello Max,

    Please advise me because Im stuck due to the unable to flash .img on windows 8. Please give me some idea how to solve this as currently my HOX is not bootable.

  81. Chris says:

    Hi Max –

    I’m a complete noob for Android, I’ve been an Apple fanboy for years and decided to branch out to the Android world world with the One X on ICS and AT&T.

    I can’t seem to find anywhere a guide on rooting the HOX running 1.85 on a mac. Could you point me in the right direction? I’m not a terminal champion either. I need help :).

    Many thanks in advance.

    – Chris

  82. Droidliner says:


    I would like to know, are methods the same for rooting One X+ ? I can’t find any guidelines πŸ™

  83. Chris says:

    Howdy Max .

    Used your OneX root video to root and flash CM10 on my OneX and it worked perfectly. Curious to know if you have a tutorial on Rooting a HTC Incredible S device? Not going to get confused following other tutorials. Yours are the easiest and cleanest .

  84. grace says:

    Hey Max. Amazing work on your website. Top notch!! I have a dilema.I have a HTC OneXL (firmware 2.20)with CM10.1 nightly build 03/07/13 JB on it and it was working great.

  86. Gustavo says:

    So.. I let my phone get the at&t jelly bean update and yeah it was super buttery smooth thanks to project butter but i still want to root my one xl because i just love the stock nexus 4 android theme look. I tried using the 2.20 firmware way to root but i couldnt change the CID… Is there any other way to root my device? I know there’s quite a few people out there that are wondering the same thing.

    when I submitted my code on htcdev.com site then I can see this message

    We’re sorry, but it appears your attempt to unlock the bootloader on
    this device has failed. This could be caused by several factors
    including simple errors in the entry of the unlock token, problems
    with your device, or a lack of manufacturer support for the unlocking
    process. Please see the specific error code listed below, and try
    again if necessary.

    Hi there

    Im trying to update my hboot but im having trouble doing so. Ive followed your vid on how to update your hboot but i keep getting stuck at the point where the firmware is supposed to flash. it reads error: can not find firmware.zip.

The problem now is that it has no rom so it will not boot or allow me to recognize it in windows to load a new rom. How can I possibly connect it to windows when their is no rom on the htc? It will go into fast boot but doesn’t recognize in dos under ads devices. Do you have a tutorial?

    Hi. I have a question. I recently installed the SlimBean rom for my international One X. Everything is working just fine. But when I try to change to another rom, my phone would not detect any signal. The service state would be ‘off’ or something. I did the reset factory, boot img and stuffs but still it didn’t work. Hope you can help me. Thanks
