Me and rogro82 started to port Android 4.2 to the HTC One X


Working
  • Wireless
  • Phone calls
  • GSM Data
  • Audio
  • Video Playback (including HD)
  • Camera (no photosphere - blame google)
  • GPS
  • NFC
  • Bluetooth
  • BT and Wireless tethering

Not Working
  • USB tethering (?)

Installation instructions
  • BACKUP YOUR DATA (using CWM)
  • Verify that your backup is complete - a backup of your sdcard may also be a good idea (see below)
  • Verify that you are running hboot 1.26 or newer (hboot 1.39 is recommended)
  • Download the ZIP and the boot.img (see Downloads)
  • Copy the .zip to your sdcard and reboot into fastboot
  • fastboot flash boot boot.img, then boot into recovery
  • WIPE your phone (this is not optional)
  • Install the .zip and reboot

Upgrading
You can always upgrade to a newer version without wiping any data, formatting system or wiping the cache.
But keep in mind that you must always flash boot.img + re-flash gapps after upgrading

FAQ

I can not upgrade my hboot to 1.3x, help!

You can still run RC13:
This was the last release using Linux 2.6 and will therefore work on older hboot versions. RC13 is stable enough for everyday-use.


What kernel should i use?

Use the stock kernel from boot.img - there is nothing wrong with it. Using a different boot.img or/and kernel will just break stuff.

For people wondering:

Although its an AOSP build it does have multi-user support which originally is only available on tablets in AOSP ( users can be added in settings )

Will have to give this one a shot. Looks very interesting, even though there's some major flaws. Official CM10 has never been stable on the HOX, so looking for alternatives. AOSP might be the solution, in the long run (not currently in that state ;)).

Good luck with the upcoming work, attempts, hacks, tweaks etc.!

EDIT:
1. You can add NFC to the list of working things. Just tested it with a tag.
2. The performance of the ROM seems very snappy and nice. Just because of it I had to take a few benchmark tests, and yeah, the ROM performs! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Api2mSgk7cfUdENKWWVqNnUyS013dnJpMGxNQXZxeEE (oops, wasn't made public at first)

Generally about Android 4.2 and its new quick settings (QS):
I wonder why Google doesn't allow us to reorder the grid (by long pressing on the items, much like on their launcher; folders). Would be great if one could add or remove buttons too. Personally I'd like to add GPS + NFC and remove 'Airplane mode'. When tapping on the items their respective activities is started. Convenient sometimes, but it makes QS pretty much useless... On/Off toggling would've been the preferred way I think. Much like how the Airplane mode button works... it doesn't even ask the user if the device should be put in airplane mode (which I think is pretty vital).

Needed to rename rc0.boot_img to rc0boot.img (really any .img name would work) but otherwise booting fine straight over the top of latest CM10 nightlies. I'm no dev, but love being on the bleeding edge :p

Where do we find the Email app, for non-Gmail mail? I do see the Exchange apk, but no Email apk. Should we use the one from 4.1, or does 4.2 have a new mail client app? Thanks for the awesome work too by the way; so far this is actually impressively stable for a preview (known issues aside, and more testing to be done)!

Compiled the new Email app from source... I guess you can just push it to /system/app.

I have not been able to test it yet though, so i cant say if its 100% working

First off, thanks for the rom - always great to try the newest version of android!

I found a bug with google now, it doesn't show me any cards relating to my location, it says that I need to turn on googles location services but they're already on.

This is a known issue (see first post -> location services) and is already fixed in the git version.

We will probably release a new build that includes the fix today or tomorrow.

I have the feeling that the dpi is slightly off. On the lockscreen for example the widget area is bigger than the screen and The numberpad to enter the pin is cramped together. (I have no better way to explain it. Sorry)

    Camera

    Using this ROM for 2 weeks now. Love it, but like with all AOSP roms I'm not happy with the camera so I decided to actually help the community instead of the usual whining.

    I've attached a pimped Camera (which is included in the Gallery, therefore the complete Gallery2.apk has to be replaced) which includes this new features:

    -Included all native camera scene modes that our HOX Camera is capable of
    -HDR Quick Toggle (which is nothing else than background-hdr scene mode)
    -Added more exposure settings (max camera value is 12, min is -12, therefore +3 = 12, +2 = 8, +1 = 4, 0 = 0, -1 = -4, -2 = -8, -3 = -12)
    -Added 6MP wide picture size (3264x1840)
    21
    Pab we might wanna give WiFi tethering as a (early) Christmas present ;)

    to fix:

    in netd / SoftapController.cpp:

    just return 0 in
    int SoftapController::fwReloadSoftap(int argc, char *argv[])

    and use hostapd from android 4.1 ( i just copied the entire wpa_supplicant_8 folder from 4.1, but only copied hostapd after compiling ) as atleast wpa_driver_ap_params has changed and therefor hostapd_drv_set_ap(hapd, &params) in beacon.c fails.

    Have done some basic testing using phone + tablet and connection seems to be fine ( tested Open and WPA2 PSK ).
