    I've got an HTC ONE X (the Tegra 3 one) with Endeavoru and Android 4.2.2 and I've unlocked my bootloader through the HTC website, but now I don't know what is the best way to get it Rooted. If anyone can point me in the right direction or the right way/tips/points or even the right post for my type of phone I'd be really grateful . ^_^ thx

    (P.S. I don't want to put a custom mod, maybe later on but for now I just want to have it rooted :D )

    You'll need to flash a custom recovery for root, if you've unlocked the bootloader, it's relatively simple.

    Download the latest TWRP from here: Techerrata Downloads - Browsing endeavoru

    Place that in your fastboot folder, boot to fastboot, connect your phone to the PC, open a command prompt, navigate to the folder where the recovery image is and type

    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot flash recovery XXX.img
    XXX is the name of the file you downloaded.

    You can then root using one of the toolkits: [TOOL] HTC One X (Tegra3) All-In-One Toolkit | HTC One X > XDA

    Edit - In fact, looking at the tool, it will flash your recovery for you too. Just choose your own recovery and use the image file you downloaded from the TWRP website.

    Does that all make sense?

    Any bricking chance involved?...and can I use any one of those img. files?

    Edit: And would it be recommended to use the last version of the IMG or is there any better one?

    Thx

    Unless it's just released, I'd always use the latest version.

    Also, minimal chance of bricking if you use the toolkit, it will eliminate most of the human error side of things (typos etc).

    Do you know if your handset was network branded before hand? If no, there's something called an RUU which can take you back to stock if something bad happens.

    And with just the recovery changed it will have the phone rooted?...Won't I need any Super User app or something like that installed?

    Once the recovery is installed, use the toolkit to root. I think (it's been a while, sorry), it will install one of the SuperUser apps from Play.

    If not, it's easy enough to download and install once the kit has rooted the phone.

    El Presidente...you the man..man xD...Thank you alot

    It worked with the fastboot command...didn't even need the toolkit apparently as the recovery installed the super user by itself.

    Thank you and many debugging successes in the future with everyone else >:D<

    Awesome, glad you're rooted! :)

    I forgot TWRP installed the SU binaries!

    If you're looking for help installing a ROM at some point, I'll be happy to help with that too. :)
