I am a newbie to this site. I have currently got the UK version of the HTC One X with the single speaker at the top of the phone

Android Version 4.2.2

HTC Sense version 5.0

Software number 4.18.401.4

HTC SDK API level 5.41

I am trying to root the phone so i can access my angry birds game data and utilise an android app to upload it to the cloud. I don't want to go the route of unlocking the bootloader as this will wipe all the data on the phone and i have spent so long setting this phone up to the way i like it. I have tried several methods on different websites with no success. Is there any method or technique that someone could recommend to root my phone without unlocking the bootloader.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply. Is this because HTC patched the exploit. If that is the case can you recommend a site where i can follow a tutorial to unlock bootloader and root my phone.

Many Thanks
