I just bought the at&t htc one x online. It come with the 5.18 firmware.
I did a little research but could only root the phone with WeakSauce.

I have tried the firewater but not any luck yet.

Is there any way that I could install Recovery or unlock bootloader for now?( I try HTC-DEv but they give me the Error Code: 160.
Error Reason: MID Not Allowed.). I also try change CID but still got the CWS_001

Are we stuck here in 5.18?

By the way, when I boot into bootloader, the phone shows "Tampered" and "Locked"

Is it normal?

Thank you very much.

No, there is no way at all you can install a custom recovery. In order to do that you need an unlocked bootloader, which you can't do because there is no exploit to get SuperCID on the 5.18 firmware. The closest you're gonna get is temp root via Weaksauce, which will only allow you to install root apps, you are unable to install any custom ROMs. Unless a highly skilled dev releases a crack (don't hold your breath, this is an old phone now) you're stuck in this situation.

I don't believe so, your system partition is read-only.
