Default [TUTORIAL] UNLOCK & ROOT Stock ROM & Stock BOOT/KERNEL

Unlock (HTC Method may void warranty, i dont care ) + CWM = Can flash any custom rom

[1] register @ htcdev [dot] com
[2] just follow on-screen instruction until successfully boot with unlocked bootloader

[3] flash via fastboot ClockworkMod Recovery for the HTC One X v5.8.4.0[thread] by broncogr or TWRP (recommended) here

Now device is Bootloader Unlocked + CWM recovery + S-ON & ready to flash custom rom. BUT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO BACKUP YOUR STOCK ROM PRIOR FLASHING CUSTOM ROM.

[4] To ROOT STOCK ROM with STOCK BOOT.img/KERNEL ,
(i) download CWN-SuperSU-v0.96.zip [thread] by Chainfire
(ii) reboot into recovery mode
(iii) select install zip frm sdcard > choose zip frm sdcard > select zip file as in (i) step above > proceed to flash.

Default reserved

by using this option, stock boot.img is remain untouched. so can full backup using recovery before messing with it
STOCK_BOOT_KERNEL_UNTOUCHED_2.6.39.4-g6b459dc.zip ( just in case )

And how to backup yours [thread]

i only want root for the mean time to uninstall those bloatware that came with the phone. and maybe soon will think to unlock my bootloader for flashing custom kernels and ROM.

but at the moment, there's no way or exploit to root without unlocking the device first?

Yes, you can! But, when I am right, you can only flash roms, that are explicit for this phone, so no ports will work until s-off

Sorry, I wish this could be possible. I will wait until it was possible.
By the way, is it possible to relock the bootloader after unlocking through htcdev.com for claiming for the warranty.

If you relock it, there will be still the signature on top of the bootloader.

So HTC always know when somebody unlocks the bootloader with htcdev.
