Hi there.
I'm new to the forum but have lurked and used some of the great information and tools that are available here.
So firstly, thank you.

Now.
I bought my One X in China (Where I live), in around August. It seems as though the one I got isn't a regular One X and because of that I'm having some problems.

A month and a half or so ago I installed an AOKP Rom which I've had some pretty intense bugs with, such as the the phone restarting whenever I toggle WiFi on or off. Because of that, I finally attempted to return to stock today. After a while, I found some success. I restored my nandroid backup, reflashed the stock recovery and relocked the bootloader. Happy that I was back to normal, I went to download the Jelly Bean OTA update, but kept having errors when doing so. (The green bar would reach about 1/3 of the way and then a red triangle showed up.) I've tried to troubleshoot and in doing so have found out that my CID is "11111111", so I have no idea what to make of it. All i could find was that this is some kind of superCID, but if it's preventing me from installing an OTA update then how do I go around this?

Is it possible to change my CID to something more accessible? This is the international Tegra 3 model by the way.
Additionally, the HBOOT screen shows that my phone is "ENDEAVORU PVT SHIP S-OFF RL". Is this normal?

Any answers would be extremely appreciated. Thank you.

You're really lucky actually, because a lot of people want exactly your phone - SuperCID and S-OFF. You cannot flash OTAs on a SuperCID phone iirc, but you can unlock the bootloader and flash something else

Hi, there are fastboot commands to change your cid if you are s-off but I am not sure why you would want to.

With s-off you can just go and flash the 1.39 hboot from mikes thread (link from his arhd thread OP)

I have same setup as you and have been wondering what actually is stock for me if I ever needed it. I don't have a nandroid from when I got the phone and I guess that s-off and super cid means I could pick any one ? But which.

Thanks for the replies. I guess i have a better understanding now of what these things all mean.
So I gather if I want to get the stock Jellybean ROM I have to flash it myself?
Eh, that's kind of a pain but I guess it's not too bad. Do I go about it in the same way that anyone else would or will there be a variation based on the situation of my phone?

Thanks

I reckon someone with an s-on would gladly swop with you if its a pain you have the most flexibility as it is.

Flash whichever update you like without worrying about the cid matching. That's the magic of super cid. Then because you are s-off you also have the option to downgrade if that ever took your fancy.

There are many guides on how to do this written far better than I could so just search the forum.

Enjoy

I see.
I've had a look around and I'm still a little confused to be honest.
Because I'm S-Off and have SuperCID, does that mean I can just choose a Jellybean OTA Update, download it, install it and upgrade the HBOOT?
Everything will be the same as if I upgraded OTA?

Sorry for being so useless.

Don't hang me for this info, see it more as a pointer to more info to search on

What i have read before is that you can write yourself a CID and update the hboot with a firmware from that CID. then you can run any software out there......

Do not run a ruu, it might mess up your s-off to s-on

When I get to my pc I will write up what I did with a link.

I did as Mr Hofs said but I did not need to change my cid from super to do it.

I have never tried an ruu.

Ok so first i read this and watched his youtube vid http://www.flow-wolf.net/2012/10/htc...beginners.html

Check video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQasxRPopSM he works with an S-Off

I started on HBoot 1.12 i believe

Then I got my unlock token handy (one from htcdev) and made sure fastboot working etc
Then did a nandroid (which i subsequently deleted but hey i tried to do the right thing )
Then I got the latest firmware for HBoot 1.39 from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1957376 I downloaded the first 1.39 for WWE (x.xx.401.x - World Wide English (WWE))
No need to change your CID. Super CID works with any of them.

Now I just followed the usual steps explained many times here to flash the firmware.

You need to put the stock recovery back on. I got mine from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...+one+x+*stock* EDIT: dont think you need this step actually -will let one of the pro's confirm.

Then relock bootloader and reboot in RUU and flash the firmware.

When done unlock bootloader again, flash custom recovery and flash a ROM. You can skip the extra step of flashing the boot.img as with S-Off your custom recovery can do it.

As mentioned by Mr Hofs I have no idea what an RUU would do to S-Off, Ive never tried.

Good luck.
