What will this do?
This will root your One X, install Busybox, and install the SuperSU application for rights management.​
Instructions

  1. Download and install the HTC mobile phone drivers. [Windows]
  2. Download the mod edit: link removed
  3. Extract root.zip into a directory on your computer.
  4. Plug your HTC One X into your computer via USB. Recommended: Plug your device’s USB cable into the back of your computer if you’re using a desktop PC.
  5. Enable USB Debugging on your HTC One X. Settings >> Developer Options >>USB debugging (checked)
  6. Double click root.bat/root-linux.sh/root-mac.sh to run the script.
  7. Congratulations! Your device will reboot a number of times and then you will have full root access.
Who do I thank?
Don't thank me. Thank sparkym3 for this exploit. Thank crisis187 for testing it out first! Thanks viperboy for the primetime tool!​
Linux/Mac untested. Should be working now. Let me know if there are problems.

If your adb is giving errors try to disable firewall - that happened to me

Works! For ATT version

Many thanks! Super User app installed and updated itself. Reports good.

Not sluggish.

Had to stop the sync and adb in task manager to get it to work (or errors) as mentioned above. ESET antivirus wasn't a problem to the process. Windows 7 64.

    Now it should work. File host problem. My bad guys!

    Tips:

    -Disable HTC Sync when you do this
    -Make sure the port is open
    -kill existing ADB.exe processes

    otherwise you can get adb server out of date messages and a few other errors

    Another quick question (and maybe something that should be mentioned in the OP for other folks), does this reset the device? Any backup of settings/apps needs to be done prior?

    No it does not.

    Edit: heading to bed (5:36 AM) so I'll be up in 8 or so hours for more questions and support.

    Should already do that with adb kill-server command.
