Help please. Stuck: HTC One X, rooted, but not unlocked bootloader
Surfed the forum for an entire week regarding rooting and unlocking the bootloader.
Its HTC One X, 4.0.3 ICS, on AT&T
Managed to root it using OneXRootOneClick method (onexroot.com)
Tried to backup through the fastboot method before flashing the ROM... and when I went to the fastboot screen, and clicked on Recovery, instead of giving options of recovering Vs backing up etc., the phone immediately just wiped everything and started clean slate.
Read in detail more, and realized there is no unlockable bootloader from htcdev.com (thanks effing AT&T!!). The only current method is the one posted recently on xda (by using the Hex editor and changing your ROMs code to think it's Rogers').
So now when i restart into fastboot, I see at the top the phone is 1-tampered 2-locked 3- S-ON .. (i restored all software and data and settings, and backed up everything on titanium afterward).
So... Questions (mostly directed towards ElPresidente and other moderators..)
1. Beside achieving root access and SuperSU, what else can i do with a rooted android if I cant unlock it in order to flash it?
2. How do i get ClockWorkMod on so i can backup my ROM onto my SD? And is it doable if I cant unlock my bootloader?
3. What options are there from here? (a rooted but unlocked device without CWM) And do i need superCID , busybox etc?
