Exclamation [Q] Unlock Bootloader For RUU 4.2.2 HTC ONE X

My bootloader is tampered but locked and i desperatly need to unlock it , i have temp root from weaksause app and that it. i tryed hexing and tryed programs from before 4.2.2. i was wondering if i do a factory reset on the phone will it turn back to 4.1.2 since i ruu'ed it to 4.2.2 ?

Tampered doesn't mean unlocked.

Do you have the at&t model? Factory resetting won't roll back the RUU, it'll only wipe user data.

There's no way for you to unlock your bootloader, because there's no exploit for you to get SuperCID on the latest at&t update. You should have unlocked before you took the update. All it would have taken while you were on 4.1.2 was some research to find the exploit for that specific firmware, which does exist and does work, but now that you've taken the update there's no way for you to roll back. Sorry, but you're stuck.

Unlocked = unlocked
Tampered = non-official software (root)
