Default [Q] Installing CM/Kitkat based roms

With an AT&T branded HTC One X on 4.1, should i root it now and flash basebands+kitkat roms, or should I flash 4.2.2 first?

also, are there prerequisites to update to 4.2 roms coming from 4.1?

If you take the update you won't be able to unlock the bootloader afterwards so you should do it now. There are prerequisites, check out the Evita FAQ thread in my signature.

sigh...can someone post (or guide) me to complete procedures to go from stock AT&T 4.1.1 to this rom: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1562603

It's so irritating when one gets used to another brand (LG) and comes to HTC with completely different file names/programs

edit: nevermind. Can i get s-off without root? + still locked to AT&T. i wanted to follow this : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2628920

You can't get s-off without root. Did you read the threads I told you to read?

You're not gonna get anywhere if you don't read and educate yourself. Plus, the rules of XDA state that a user must search thoroughly before asking for help, so I'm much less inclined to assist someone who is attempting to take the easy way out by just asking instead of searching. I even gave you a specific thread to check out, it doesn't get much easier than that.

Like I said though, if you ever want to unlock the bootloader and root your phone, you do not want to take that update.
