I know it's possible on Nexus devices using an app like this one.

Is it possible on the HTC One X?

The reason I want this is to prevent others from accessing my information if my phone is stolen (the screen lock is useless if the attacker knows how to enter recovery mode and extract the information directly).

Thank you!!

As far as am concerned, i don't think the bootloader can be looked with a password. the phone can be wiped while in bootloader mode

I didn't mean locking the bootloader with a password. I meant locking it in the same that it's locked when you buy the phone.
What I need is a way to unlock the bootloader without wiping. On Nexus devices it's possible by using the app I linked (though you need root for it to work). I was wondering if there was an app like that one for HTC phones, or an adb command, or anything that would allow me to to unlock the bootloader without wiping. I know it's not possible without root, but maybe there is a way on a rooted phone.

The only way HTC allows to unlock is via HTCdev.com and that will wipe the phone.
