Hello there,

I have got myself an HTC One X, upgrading from the HTC Desire.
I'm not satisfied with my battery usage.

I've read that if you unlock your bootloader that your current rom will be removed?
I've got myself prepared, been reading 3 days and stuff.

Unlocking bootloader
flash new recovery
nandroid backup of current rom ( if still exist ??? :P )
flash new rom

Are these the steps that will give me a safe new rom?

Unlocking the bootloader will not remove the rom, it will wipe the data on the phone and for some it even wipes the sd card, but the rom is not affected. So yes the steps are to unlock bootloader, flash custom recovery, take nandroid backup and flash new rom (not forgetting boot.img via fastboot)

Thanks for your reply.

When I connect my HTC One X to my laptop, i see Internal Storage, here are my Photos/Videos/Music.
Will this be wiped?

Because if so, how do I put the recovery and rom on my storage?

Thanks

Unlocking bootloader may wipe the internal storage (as it does for some), so it's best to backup any important files/photos/videos etc. After unlocking your bootloader you need to flash a custom recovery but this is not stored on the sd card so that won't be affected. If the sd card is wiped and the rom is lost, once you have flashed recovery you can boot to recovery and then mount the usb mass storgage and copy the rom file across again.

Included in the rom.zip file you download you will find a file named boot.img. This file needs to be flashed via fastboot before flashing the rom. So the steps are:
1. Unlock bootloader - fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
2. Flash custom recovery - fastboot flash recovery nameofrecoveryfile.img
3. Flash boot.img - fastboot flash boot boot.img
4. Erase cache for good measure - fastboot erase cache
5. Boot to recovery and then flash the rom

Hi, I'm thinking of unlocking boot loader on my One X (Tegra 3, International). Can someone please tell me if instruction on OP is still the best way to do this or is there a better solution?

Many thanks,
