Thanks. Worked awesomely fine on ATT HOX 4.2.2 after some initial hiccups.

Just to help other people:

1. Weaksauce seems to be replaced by Sunshine. Link remains the same.
2. Sunshine helped in temp root but after running rumrunner, needed to regain root each time rumrunner was waiting for adb. Disconnecting the device on startup, regaining root from sunshine and connecting at least 20 sec before the 120 sec marker was the key.
3. Sunshine also caused some instability at times, device crashed soon after regaining root. Started all over again in that case.

3 pourings of stinky rum and bootloader was unlocked. Cheers!

Sunshine will give you s off by itself. If you paid for sunshine,why didn't you just run that and let it do its thing?

Sunshine was crashing on my device. It tried to gain temp root so that it can run a test to see if it will work or not. Payment step would have came later if the test results were positive. Sunshine was crashing during the test and could never reach the test results stage.

So did you use weaksauce or Sunshine in the end? Looks like weaksauce should still work for 4.2.2 since its so old

Edit- Does Rumrunner install a recovery kernel or no? I'm curious if this just roots it and gets S-OFF at the end at which point you can boot to recovery and flash CWM/TWRP like normal

I used Sunshine. No idea about Weaksauce. It was some time ago so I do not remember exactly, but I think you are correct about Rumrunner only unlocking the bootloader. I remember pushing the CWM recovery through ADB on my phone.

Just breaking it down in case a newbie (like i was 3 days ago) can make his/her life simpler.
1. rumrunner works in most cases for HTC ONE X (AT&T , USA) version for getting S-OFF. But it needs root access. One way to try and do this is to get WeakSauce installed on your phone (i also installed SuperSU from the app store) .
2. Now once u start executing rumrunner , make sure you use weaksauce to get super user access . Rumrunner will reboot ur machine ,and sometimes weaksauce did not work on my phone after a reboot , and in such cases i manually ran the app on the phone (though rum-runner says no). This lets rumrunner continue and get your phone to S-OFF successfully.
3. Once rumrunner reports that its done (pouring..followed by something that suggests its done, cant remember what , right now), you will get S-OFF on your device ( reboot into bootloader by pressing vol down +power) and check the status.
4. After this you can do anything you want ! like install cyanogenmod (cyanogenmod evita , i run cm11 snapshot 10)

And these developers are awesome ! Also @grigoriisii , sorry if this looks like im hijacking the thread , just trying to give a bit more details for the lazy one/newbie checking the last post :P

Dr_Drache - lots of testing
AND THE RUMMRUNNER TEAM.

This worked on my never been rooted AT&T HTC One X stock version 5.18 Software and Android 4.2.2
Cheers,
