Guys you should try Rumrunner S-OFF. There is a dedicated thread in Desire X Android development section.

Rumrunner S-OFF
Now that we have a working S-OFF for the Desire X, is this likely to help improve the development situation as far as getting a fully working CM 10.1/CM 10.2 goes?

No. S-off doesn't help in any development, but kernel & recovery flashing would become much easier as we can flash kernels & recoveries directly from recovery, no need of pc

And you can also change the size of partitions and bootup logo.

Like you can split an hdd in partitions and set them a size, name etc. also android has its partitions to work on: one for bootloader, one for kernel, one for system, etc.
Changing the size it means you can set to which partition you want custom size, for ex. you can change /system partition size to 1mb and you will not be never able to boot a rom, for example..

It has to be done outside the phone on a PC. You have to extract the hboot, modify the image, and flash it back to the phone. Back at my old phone, the HTC Aria, we got someone in our forums who wrote a tool for that. But I doubt that it'll be much use for us. For the HTC Aria, it was important to get CM greater or equal 9 running because system partition was too small.
