    I want to Root my ONE X. But I don't know where to start, I have read the forums and clicked the links but I'm still confused!! I have never messed with a phones settings before, This is my first Android phone and I've had it for a year.

    could some one give me a clue as to where I should start and take all the technical talk out of it.


    thanks,
    Semperfi,

    Hello marine:)

    I move your thread to the AT&T All Things Root forum so folks that own the exact device you do can help you out. Good luck rooting your phone.

    Which software version are you on currently? I'm not overly familiar with the root method for the AT&T version, but I'll have a read up and let you know. I'm pretty sure there's a toolkit thing which does everything for you.

    I am a rooting noob. But I was able to root and flash custom ROM after watching the videos at onexroot.com

    EL Presidente,
    Sorry it took me so long to answer you I was out of town for the last 3 weeks, Which one of the WINRAR files do I down load? there is a whole page of stuff there. And also how do I download the toolkit?

    Thanks,

    I was a rooting noob myself. I was able to root my at&t one x no problem. I was on the 2.20 software as well. I am currently running cleanrom 5 and I really like it. It is very smooth and stable. I am going to wait until the cleanrom jelly bean rom is out of beta which should be pretty soon. I think i read on xda somewhere that once you flash certain jelly bean roms you can't go back to icecream sandwich roms. That is why I am waiting for the cleanrom jelly bean rom to work out the bugs even though there haven't been many reported at all.

    Which model is it, do you know? Is it the tegra 3 or the S4 or the AT&T branded model?

    the question above is the most important,as the s4 and tegra 3 roms and images are not compatible. using the wrong thing can and will brick your phone.

    may want to read the beginnings before just jumping to the end to ask a general question. there is alot of good info on these forums,and youll find most of the info you need without having to wait for an answer.

    a very general answer,is this:
    -if you have a tegra 3 one x,or an international s4 one x,you can unlock via htcdev.com and install an appropriate recovery
    -if you have an att s4 one x on ICS,youre SOL for now. att doesnt allow the unlocking of bootloaders(at least the one x) and ICS has blocked the exploit that allowed temp root and superCID(wich allowed the bootloader to be unlocked)
