Thumbs down [Q] USB Debugging always enabled, lost ability to download files from phone.

Hello people.
At the end of 2012 my wife got OTA upgrade (3 in a row) for her HTC One X.
The upgrade broke seriously the USB support on the phone.
Now the phone will turn USB Debugging when connected to a computer. Even though I disable USB Debugging in the settings! And even when I disable the whole Developers' Section the settings!
When I disable the developers' section the phone asks me to enable the USB Debugging.
Even worse: there is no option to make the phone present itself as USB Hard Drive, and I can't download the pictures and videos from the phone. And since the phone's memory is not removable I'm stuck!
It also seems to not charge while connected to a computer (charges when connected to the supplied charger).

Has anyone observed this?

I've reported the issue to HTC, from where I got just one "We'll escalate the issue..." and then complete silence.

What can I do?

I may be able to pull the contents via ADB, but that's not a solution!

Android Version: 4.1.1
HTC Sense Version: 4+
Software Version: 3.14.401.31

Please advise!

The phones connection mode was changed to MTP with the laast update. Support for usb mass storage was dropped.
You should be able to use MTP if you install htc sync on your pc.

You can still drag and drop with USB Debugging enabled. The One X will show up.
