Prompt [ROOT] One Click HTC One X (AT&T/Rogers/Others) (Win/Mac/Linux)

What will this do?
This will root your One X, install Busybox, and install the SuperSU application for rights management.
Instructions
  1. Download and install the HTC mobile phone drivers. [Windows]
  2. Download the root.zip file.
  3. Extract root.zip into a directory on your computer.
  4. Plug your HTC One X into your computer via USB. Recommended: Plug your device’s USB cable into the back of your computer if you’re using a desktop PC.
  5. Enable USB Debugging on your HTC One X. Settings >> Developer Options >>USB debugging (checked)
  6. Double click root.bat/root-linux.sh/root-mac.sh to run the script.
  7. Congratulations! Your device will reboot a number of times and then you will have full root access.
Who do I thank?
Don't thank me. Thank sparkym3 for this exploit. Thank crisis187 for testing it out first! Thanks viperboy for the primetime tool!
Linux/Mac untested. Should be working now. Let me know if there are problems.

Inside root.zip there's only "root.img"

Tips:

-Disable HTC Sync when you do this
-Make sure the port is open
-kill existing ADB.exe processes

otherwise you can get adb server out of date messages and a few other errors

Should already do that with adb kill-server command.
