The folks over at MoDaCo claim that they have successfully come up with a way to root the phone. Noted ROM developer and general modder Paul “Modaco” O’Brien has already released a superboot package for the HTC One X. If you’re unfamiliar with the term “superboot”, it’s basically a desktop script file that automatically goes through all the tedious little steps involved in pushing the necessary root files to your phone over a USB connection. Here’s a description of what Superboot does to the phone:
Superboot is a boot.img that when booted, will root your device the first time you boot (installing su and the superuser APK). No need to flash any partitions, no need to mess around with ADB, no messing with the contents of your data partition, no overwriting the shipped ROM on your device, just boot the boot image using the instructions below and you’re done!
