Welcome to SentinelROM for HTC One X (endeavoru - Tegra 3 Only). Compiled with the Linaro toolchain from modded CM10.2 source. Android 4.3
This is one of the most popular ROMs for Nexus 10 and Nexus 7, and after a month of hard work and optimisation, I am happy to release it for HTC One X.



This ROM is compiled from CyanogenMod 10.1 with all the features you get in a CM10.2 ROM, plus the following features.
  • Compiled with the Linaro toolchain for extreme performance.
  • Zip Aligned
  • Compiled from latest CyanogenMod 10.2 source by me, not a 'cooked ROM'.
  • OTA Updates supported
  • Improved Web Browsing performance
  • Improved 3D gaming performance
  • Amazing battery life
  • Additional theming and UI customisation
  • FAST support via this page and our Facebook Page
  • A free copy of my music player app
________________________




This ROM has been built to enhance the CyanogenMod 10.2 experience, with faster gaming and web browsing performance (no choppyness in Chrome too!).

Countless hours have been spent making tweaks to settings to squeeze the most performance I can find out of this ROM while still providing excellent battery life and without the dangers of overclocking and kernel level tweaking.

I compile this ROM and Kernel from the latest CyanogenMod source code, add my various tweaks and adjustments, then test for stability, so you get all the benefits of CyanogenMod 10.2, plus my tweaks and extras, all without the instability and inconvenience of flashing CyanogenMod nightlies (which are not designed specifically for the HTC One X like my ROM is.

The kernel source is available from the CyanogenMod's GitHub.

Requires HBOOT 1.29 or newer.

*Some users have reported ADB via USB not working. It's not actually a bug, but a difference in the way ADB works and the drivers required for CM vs SENSE based ROMS... If this is you, follow these steps to get ADB working..

Quote:

Plug your phone in to your pc.
Open up device manager (Right click computer -> Manage -> Device Manager)
Find your phone in the list.
Mine was initially under 'Other Devices' labeled as 'One'
Right click -> Update Driver Software...
Select 'Browse my computer for driver software'
Select 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'
Make sure to uncheck 'Show compatible hardware'
Select 'Android Phone' then 'Next'
Select 'Google, Inc' on the left pane and 'Android ADB Interface' on the right pane. Hit Next
Hit 'OK' if there was a warning.

To test if ADB is working, launch a CMD prompt and type 'adb devices'
You should now see you phone in the list!!

p.s. mounting your sdcard should also work.

If installing for the first time:

To install this ROM you will need to have an unlocked bootloader and a custom Recovery such as TWRP or ClockWorkMod installed (personally I recommend TWRP, I have had issues with restoring backups using CWM).
  1. Copy the downloaded SentinelROM zip to your Internal Storage.
  2. Boot into your custom recovery
  3. Back up your stock ROM
  4. Boot into bootloader (power + Vol down) and enter Fastboot mode
  5. Extract boot.img from ROM zip and flash via fastboot [fastboot flash boot boot.img] (there are heaps of guides on how to do this)
  6. Enter custom recovery
  7. Factory Reset and wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache
  8. Wipe System partition
  9. Install the ROM
  10. Install GAPPS package
  11. Reboot - the first boot can take up to 5 minutes

Important: After installation you will be asked if you want to turn on CyanogenMod Statistics, please leave it off as this is an unofficial/modified build.

Note: Use of titanium backup to restore apps and data from another ROM is not recommended, and is the source of 90% of user issues, especially when it comes to battery life. Do so at your own risk.




You may flash other kernels as you wish via recovery. Remember to also flash the correct libraries for any 3rd party kernels. Instructions will be given by the Kernel author. NOTE: Updating the ROM via OTA will also overwrite any custom Kernels you have installed.

Hi tc, for some reason all aosp based roms are in original android development, I think you should consider moving your rom there

Thanks for your work
