I recently purchased a rooted HTC One X, the phone is currently running 4.2.2 Liquid Smooth and hasn't been updated in probably a year. Do I need to update TWRP recovery first then install whatever rom I want to use?

More information needed. Please post your bootloader details and your current recovery version.

You have some work to do. First thing you need to do is get s-off, try the Facepalm S-off method. Then you'll need to update your firmware, go to the How-To Guide For Beginners thread in my signature for download and instructions. Then you need to flash the latest TWRP, you'll find that here.

So I've gone ahead and followed all of your steps, have s-off, updated firmware and an updated version of TWRP. Is it safe to say I'm good to go and can flash the rom of my choice?
