Oh yeah baby. Very good news, very good news indeed. Will be trying this out a bit later. Again, Ty for bringing this to us.

Make sure to thank (or at least give a thought to) the people I listed in the OP. They came up with the exploit that was used!

If you don't want to restore, simply do the following:

Code:
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p33 /system
rm /data/local.prop
rm /data/local/tmp
mv /data/local/tmp.bak /data/local/tmp
That will bring back your lock screen and make the phone not sluggish. You'll have to re-try the root batch file. Make sure not to play with the phone or unplug it while rooting.

Edit: or just re-run the batch file. Looks like that worked just fine. :p

The mac script is saved in Win format and needs a couple other tweaks... However running each command individually worked a treat for me on my MBP / AT&T HOX. Unless someone beats me to it I'll tweak the script and PM it to you kennethpenn for your approval.

"You have our gratitude"

Okay, perhaps an ignorant question, but what would happen if you use this method, yet you already used the Superboot r2 method by Paul Obrien?

Are there any differences?

Thanks,
Peter
There's no need to use this method if you've already used the superboot one. The superboot.img only works with an unlocked bootloader, which means only Rogers users can utilize it. The method in this thread works on all One XL devices. It doesn't involve swapping the kernel (like the superboot method), so we don't need an unlocked bootloader to use it.

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.

So glad I checked XDA before I shipped back my One X to AT&T :D

Thanks to those for the exploit and kenneth for the tool. ;)
