Couldn't it be that just like the EVO 3D you need to intentionally brick your device to gain S-Off because otherwise you can't get into eMMC mode (Evo) or APX mode (One X)?

I don't know how to do this, since you can't just pull the battery on the One X. The trick is that you somehow disrupt the hboot upgrading process, but how, that's beyond me. But my main point is, maybe there is no other way to enter APX mode than on a bricked device.

So the recovery/reset finished successfully?

If not, this could be worth a try. Maybe let battery run out, such that it only has little to get into hboot. Run recovery and "hope" that battery runs out meanwhile. Anyone brave enough to try? ^^

Until we have a method to flash from apx mode then it might not be advisable. You could be bricked for a while

Holding power button for 10 secs supposedly simulates battery pull
