For those who have problems with GPS on HTC ONE X i make a tutorial how to fix this.
This method work perfectly for me,and for other users.
If you are not scare to open your phone fallow this steps like in tutorial.
Method 1

1: open your phone to reveal what is inside
2: pull up those connectors shown in photo
3: close back
4: everifing is fix

Method 2

Instead of pulling up thouse pin ,use a soldering iron and put some soldering on the spot where pins touch the antena .

Excellent - this is the only thing that actually fixes this hardware issue.


I follwed your tutorial. Bought a pack of 5 plectrums off EBay for 99p to open the HOX like you did in the video.

Best 99p ever spent.
A lot better than sending phone away for 2 weeks only to hope it may be fixed.
Took 5 minutes, did it myself and don't lose all your data like you do sending it to HTC.

As I mentioned in another post, I had given up hope on my GPS, but didn't want to send off my One X due to root, custom ROM and stories of long waits without the phone actually being fixed.

This fix worked perfectly for me.

If you are having GPS problems and have the nerve, I suggest you try this.

Gabrielvl, thanks again.

Didn't really notice a difference for me (HTC One X Intl) and on top of that, i broke a wifi pin and damaged a network pin....
All seems to be working (GPS is still a bit weird), does anyone know if wifi will work properly on one pin and network on a slightly damaged pin?

You can try to soldering a wire from brocken pin to antena. If u can do that your problem will be fix. I know for sure becouse a friend happening the same like you and he fix with a wire

I dont have a soldering iron and i'm not gonna buy one just for a pin. I havent noticed any wifi problems, I still connect to 2.4GHz and 5Ghz and speed is still the same and with the network, its on 1 or 2 bars but i am inside and it usually is on that anyway and the GPS is not fixed, if anything, worse. But again, i am inside.

If it would work properly on one pin, thew would only have one pin to start with.

Soldering wires is not a good solution, they will act as antennae, which are a specific length tuned to the desired frequency.
