HTC One X at AT&T, Rogers, other carriers gets rooted

The developers over at the XDA Developer's Forum, and kennethpen in particular, have now released a one-click root for the HTC One X. This time around, however, the AT&T, Rogers and other carrier-locked versions got the attention, and users still need to plug it into their computers to copy the needed files, be they Linux-, Windows-, or OS X-powered. The bootloader on the handset remains locked, however.

What the process does is allows root access to the phone and installs Busybox software and SuperSU application for rights management. This root will not work on the international, Tegra 3-powered version of the handset, however.

HTC Sync needs to be disabled for this to work, and the phones should be put into the USB Debugging mode. Rooting a phone will let users install software or versions of Android that may not be otherwise yet or at all available for their handsets.
