    hi

    just bought a second hand htc one x for my wife. all ok apart from the green tint to all pictures taken with the flash indoors.

    googling shows its a common problem, but i cant find a solution. do i need to root it and instal a different rom? or is there some sort of update or fix for this now?

    thanks

    My Mrs has a similar problem. Is yours using a case? If I take the case off hers it improves it somewhat.

    Try another camera app too, Camera Zoom FX is pretty good.

    I'm very pro root anyway, but if you're out of warranty, there's no harm.

    I'm not entirely sure it will fix it, but there's no harm in giving it a go.

    Do you know what you're doing? I'm talking someone else through the process here so feel free to read through some of the stuff I've linked there and ask if you have any questions.

    If you rooted the Desire HD pre the Ace Hack Kit, rooting and ROMing on the One X will be a piece of cake. :)

    had a read of that thread thanks mate. can you just let me know if i can connect the phone to pc and replace the dodgy file on the phone with drag and drop etc, or do i need to root the phone first to make any changes.

    thanks a lot

    It looks like you need to be rooted and have a custom recovery installed for that to work.

    thanks. i worked on the phone for several hours last night, unlocking bootloader and then rooting. i installed viper rom which went ok. as soon as i installed the green tint fix from zip tho, it wouldnt reboot. it hangs with a system fault.
    i then have to wipe everything and restore my nandroid, which obviously doesnt include the fix.

    would you be able to help me out any more please?

    thanks

    Is the fix confirmed and working for that particular version of Viper? What was the exact error message when you rebooted after flashing?

    i cant remember what the error said now, id have to do it again, but ill probably try this new file next, and make note of the error this time if it doesnt work.

    thanks a lot

    Cool, keep me posted.

    I note from the OP that it might conflict with any other camera tweaks and I seem to remember Venom having a no compress option?

    I didn't realise it was as bad as that, is your tint as pronounced as some of the screenshots in that thread?

    Glad you're sorted. :)
