Tutorial [Q] I want to root my HOX. How, though?

Please don't get mad at me for making this thread.
I just haven't seen any recent, non-shady looking places with a guide to root an HTC One X.

I'd like to root my HTC One X to:
1) Improve battery life by:
i) Safely undervolting/underclocking it
ii) Turning off 2 of the 4 cores
iii) Installing the BEST rom for battery
(I'm not sure of their respective advantages/risks/disadvantages.. could you please let me know?)
iv) Any other way, really

2) Get rid of the "3" Network branding

3) Maybe get a nice ROM
4) Perhaps I'll get Titanium Backup Pro,

I recently had my phone serviced under warranty at HTC service, and the 3-month-warranty-of-repairs thing will end in a month, and the normal 2 year warranty expired in April.

Should I root my HOX now?

How should I root my HOX? Could you please direct me to a still-valid rooting guide for my HOX?


Also, could you please recommend what I should do once I root my phone?

EDIT: Also, I'm a bit confused about custom ROMs. Does having one installed mean the default HTC Sense is removed? Like, the weather widgets and such will be gone? The 'settings' menus will look different, etc?


Thanks

The first thing you should do is probably be in the correct forum [emoji12]

You're in the HTC One XL / at&t One X (Evita) forum, and you actually have the HTC One X (Endeavoru). Plus, you've posted in the General Section, when you should have posted in the Q&A Section.

What you should do is head over to the HTC One X forum, but before you post another thread there you should do some research first. XDA rules state that a user must search thoroughly before posting. All you should really need to do is check out the sticky threads (the ones at the very top) in each of the sections there, your question has been asked a million times before, and therefore has been answered a million times before. Time to do some reading.

PS. Asking which ROM is best/most stable/fastest/prettiest, or asking for a suggestion isn't allowed, here's why. To say one ROM is better is to infer that the others are inferior in some way. This is disrespectful to the devs who spend their spare time bringing us these awesome ROMs free of charge. Each user has different tastes anyway, the best way to see which ROM suits you is to flash a few and find out for yourself. Battery life differs greatly from user to user anyway, it depends a lot on how you use your device.

Thanks for your quick reply!

I didn't realise I was in the wrong forum. Thanks for the advice, I'll go do that now.
