Last Friday I decided I wanted to change my rom from the sluggish ICJ (Ice Cold Jelly) 4.2.2 to the AICP (Android Ice Cold Project) Kit Kat for HTC One X.
I made the very nooby mistake of not putting the rom onto my phone before flashing the boot.img, kernel etc. via fastboot, so I was stuck with nothing but a bootloader and CWM Recovery 188.8.131.52 (which would not allow me to mount USB storage!!!)
So with no way to put the rom onto the phone, I was stuck with a phone that could not run the currently installed rom = bricked.
Somewhere amongst all this I wiped the rom that was currently installed altogether, leaving no way to go back to it.
Using fastboot I flashed stock boot.img, recovery.img, and relocked bootloader, and tried 3 different stock RUU's to restore my phone, but then later found out that I cannot use an RUU for ICS when my bootloader is version-main: 3.14.980.27 (JB) and a JB RUU for AUS Optus001 does not exist!
I cannot use nandroid backup to restore my phone because I cannot access the sdcard because it will not mount.
Here are the RUU's I tried, for my International HTC One X (CID: Optus001)
If I start the phone normally it stops at HTC Quietly Brilliant.
I can flash a recovery at any time, but I have tried multiple CWM Recoveries to try to mount USB Storage so I can install a ROM but USB storage would not successfully mount, it would just say sdcard0 shared-unmounted.
If helpful, my bootloader reads:
ENDEAVORU PVT SHIP S-ON RL
CPU-bootmode : disabled
HW Secure boot: enabled
MODEM PATH : OFF

I ran 'fastboot getvar version-main' and it came back with
finished. total time: 0.009s
If someone could point me in the right directions to unbricking my phone, and getting ANY rom working on it again, I would be eternally grateful.
I know I have at least 2 options but I can't seem to figure this out by myself;
1. Find a way to mount USB storage on my phone so I can then install a rom.
2. Downgrade the bootloader so I can install the stock ICS RUU.
Any help at all would be much appreciated as I need my phone working again ASAP.
