Before you yell at me for not searching, I spent the last 5 hours trying to fix this problem.

I tried to root my Rogers HTC One X, but after failing serveral times in changing the CID, I soft-bricked my phone when trying the method from How to root your HTC One X Tegra3 (for Windows, Mac and Linux) thread on modaco

Now my phone loads up on the HTC logo with red text, and just crashes. I tried to find a RUU, but I can't, only a OTA for my version.

Info
3.17.631.2
File Timestamp: 04/12/12
Publically Seen: 08/01/13
Android: 4.1.1
hboot: 2.14.0000
Kernel: 3.4.10
adsp: 31.1.0.45.0815
radio: 0.23a.32.09.29_10.128.32.34


Could I use the OTA to do a factory reset, if so how?
I can't seem to find a RUU.

Would I be able to use a different RUU, that's a older version?
I have TWRP 2.4.1.0 installed as well, and can access it.

Thanks

I'm not sure, is there a way I'm able to check in my current condition?

Actually, it wasn't that easy, even after unlocking it says I wasn't rooted. My bootloader is unlocked, restore was flashed, and I get "tampered".
I had to install some kind of exploit that kept failing to change my CID.

Also, my HBoot says S-On, maybe one of the reasons I couldn't use root when I flashed it?

Bootloader says

**** TAMPERED ****
**** UNLOCKED ****

Thanks all for replying by the way

Well of course you wouldn't be rooted after that...do you really think HTC would put out a program that would root our phones and then take responsibility? No.. you obviously did not read at all....once you unlock your bootloader you flash twrp than flash a Rom/ or root... Is that hard to read?

S-on has nothing to do with root. Have you installed a recovery? TWRP?

Yes, I ****ed up. I know. I didn't fully understand what I was doing at first, and just basically skimmed though a couple tutorials before I messed up my phone. If I can get this fixed I know for next time, and probably wont attempt something like this again until I fully understand it. I just want my phone back.

Your steps to freedom...
Download viper xl 3.2.3 to your computer (for now then you can switch roms)
Connect your phone via usb to your comp Go into twrp mount your storage and drag the Rom over to the phone where you'll be able to find it on your sd
Now go into the wipe menu in twrp select wipe system and factory reset..
Nowclicj on install in twrp find viper where you put in on your sd and click on and flash it
You now have a custom Rom/root/ fixed phone
