HTC One X gets rooted

Despite the fact that regular consumers can’t get their hands on the One X by HTC quite yet, that hasn’t stopped some intrepid individuals out there from managing to gain root access before retail availability. Things like this have happened in the past, so it’s not all that uncommon or shocking. More than anything, it’s a good sign that the development community who have been fans of HTC-branded devices in the past, shouldn’t be all that disappointed with the upcoming device’s wide release.

The device has been rooted courtesy of MoDaCo, and they’ve pulled out all the stops. Instead of a long, drawn-out process, MoDaCo has created a Superboot, which will let you root the One X in one, simple action. No adb commands, and no real fussing. Just a boot image that gets the job done, and your root access guaranteed.

It is said to work with Mac, Linux and Windows and it is reportedly fully capable with the full retail handset. Go ahead and head through the link below to learn more.
