Default Rooting problem

I tried using windroid but i get "Device: not found" when my phone is plugged into the USB cable, i have HTC sync installed and it fins my phone, USB debugging is also enabled but still "Device: not found", why?!


I have a HTC one X(from Sweden) with Android 4.2.2 installed on it and i want to root it to upgrade to 4.4. I downloaded "OneXRootOneClick" but when i run the file to root as administrator in windows 7 i get "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command "

i then got the newest Android SDK and unpacked it @ > C:\temp\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140321\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140321\sdk\platform-tools

i then ran the following in CMD

set ANDROID_PLATFORM_TOOLS="C:\temp\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140321\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140321\sdk\platform-tools"

set ANDROID_TOOLS="C:\temp\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140321\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140321\sdk\tools"


but when i run the file in OneXRootOneClick again i get the very same thing once more, do anyone know why or how i could another way root my android(possibly without a reset)?

Open a command window inside the platform tools folders and place the phone in the bootloader, you should see fastboot USB in red text. Type this in the command window :

Fastboot devices

Tell me what happens.

And don't use a tool, let's do this the old fashioned way with straight commands.
