You don't need S-Off for this rooting. He wrote a bootscript, that (I think so), reroots you phone every time.
Should I give it a look how he made it?

The phone he got was already S-Off.

This was developer[d] for a user with a S-OFF test phone."

Won't be close to AMOLED. It can't be - LCD works by shifting the colour of a constant light. You can't selectively turn it off*.

There is some confusion about the display, though - I've seen several sources refer to it as an IPS display, but S-LCD is historically a brand name that applies to *VA screens. I believe it's a Samsung-Sony venture, and their TVs all have *VA panels.
If it's a VA panel, expect better blacks and contrast ratio when compared against the iPhone (or any other IPS display), but inferior viewing angles and colour accuracy. The difference should mostly be negligible tho.

Thems the cliff notes.

*well, technically, you can, via LED backlighting. But not on a pixel-level.

I wish the black on the LCD 2 will be like the amoled one!

Actually you do need s-off / HTCdev unlocked bootloader

This superboot image is created after a user request for 'testing' One X devices. It should work on any retail One X device with S-OFF or a HTCdev unlocked bootloader. I will update it for retail devices (if required) in due course.

mate the article on gsmarena showed the exact same grid as the LG IPs panel, also obvious in all photos view angles are perfect
