Q1: How do I unlock my bootloader, ROOT my HTC One X and flash custom recovery?
You can find a guide on HTC Source here - How-to HTC: Unlock bootloader, flash custom recovery and root the HTC One X.Q2: What are the commands to flash Kernel boot.img via fastboot?
Type in the command - fastboot flash boot "location and name of boot.img" (without the quotes). Make sure you also do the command - "fastboot erase cache" (without the quotes) afterwards to ensure a clean install. Or you can use thunder07's tool found here - [TOOL]One X One Click v2.0|Kernel&Modules|Recovery|RUU|MultiRepack|Root ing|AIO|. If you're running TWRP recovery your filename will be boot.emmc.win.Q3: How to install Jelly Bean on HTC One X?

You can use thunder07's tool to repack any custom kernel you wish for the ROM that you use, the tool can be found here - [TOOL]One X One Click v2.0|Kernel&Modules|Recovery|RUU|MultiRepack|Root ing|AIO|Q5: When I stop playing music, the phone makes a popping sound, why?
That's totally normal, this is due to the vibrations that are being forced to stop (muted) after a sound ends. There isn't much you can do to totally remove this, however you can disable any audio effects/audio DSPs to reduce the vibrations of the DAC.Q6: I installed a rom and now my phone is in a bootloop (it doesn´t get past the htc logo), what is wrong?
You probably forgot to flash the boot.img of your new ROM.Q7: Where is a good index of development for International HTC One X?
To solve this issue,
This will solve the bootloop in most cases.
- open the ROM.zip without unzipping and copy the boot.img to your fastboot folder
- open cmd and type:
- Code:cd c:\fastboot (change it to the directory of your fastboot folder)
- Code:fastboot flash boot boot.img
- Wait for it to flash
- Code:fastboot erase cache
- Wait for it to erase
- And reboot.
See the following thread for an Index of everything related to development to help modify your International One X - [REF][26 Feb]*HTC ONE X* - Indexed listing of roms, kernels, guides, tools & modsQ8: How can I find the best configuration for my HTC One X, including a guide to Undervolting?
Please see this thread for further information - -THE ULTIMATE =BATTERY LIFE + GAMING PERFORMANCE=[setup/guide/UNDERVOLTING-explained].Q9: How many charge cycles does it take for a ROM/Kernel to settle down after flashing?
In my experience it's around 2-3 full battery cycles. Which means you have to charge your battery to 100% and then run it down to about 5-10% before you start charging again. After the 3rd cycle your battery should start to improve dramatically.Q10: My battery is running down very quickly while my screen is off, why is this?
It's most likely caused by an app that's active in the background, thus draining your battery and keeping your phone from sleeping. Please check out this thread on more information about wakelocks - [GUIDE] Wakelocks Definition and how to prevent them.Q11: Why am I getting lags when browsing the homescreen?
It's pretty normal on the HOX, it happens after you have been using your ROM for a while. There is an app which can help you fix the lag, there is a thread about it here - [APP] LagFix (fstrim) v1.5.1 2013.03.04. The app itself is called LagFix and can be found on Play Store here - LagFix.Q12: Where can I find a list of which games and apps are optimized for Tegra?
Please take a look at this thread here - Tegra 3 optimized Games and apps -- All About Tegra 4Q13: I need a stock NANDROID backup for my CID, where can I find it?
You can get backups for different CID's here - [COLLECTION]Stock Nandroid Backups for Different CIDs
