Here’s another “fail-proof” method to install ROMs on your rooted HTC One X.

Why another installation method?

Well, some ROMs require you to flash boot.img separately, otherwise your new custom ROM may not boot. This is due to AROMA installers not flashing boot image or that the developer left out boot image flashing in their zip files. But no worries, this will get your new custom ROM booting fully.

    max need help i went into recovery after planning to flash in a new rom (the current alpha 7) i’m still on p10.

    I only have 1 option available in recovery, HBOOT. underneath it says “checking SD card update…”

    The only thing I did before doing this was to reset (factory) to wipe everything off of the phone. how should i proceed?
