Update HTC One X with CyanogenMod 10.1 M3 Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Custom ROM
HTC One X is officially ready to join the group of smartphones which have made the move to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. This guide will use CyanogenMod 10.1 M3 custom ROM to launch this operating system on your device without any headaches.
The flashing of this tool will cause your phone to experience bugs, FC errors and a couple of other issues. To take care of them: install a stable custom ROM (or stock firmware) again.
We recommend the following pre-requisites to be performed first, as they will assure a painless operation: root the smartphone (and get a custom recovery image, too), turn on USB debugging, use the model that is factory unlocked, charge the battery, make a backup using this guide and flash USB Drivers for the One X on your laptop.
- The tasks that must be taken into account for step one are the following: download CM10.1 M3 Jelly Bean 4.2.2 custom ROM on the comp you have near you.
- Extract one file dubbed boot.img.
- Download Google Apps archive from here on the same laptop, then connect the One X to it.
- Move the new ROM zip file together with the Google Apps zip file from its previous location to the phone’s memory card root; now copy and paste the boot.img file to a directory that is called like this: android-sdk-windowsplatform-tools. Switch the smartphone off.
- Enter the phone into Bootloader Mode by turning it on while at the same time pressing and holding Power and Volume Down.
- For step six, your tasks are the following: launch Command line once you are in the android-sdk-windowsplatform-tools directory.
- Step seven: type
fastboot flash boot boot.img
and then be sure to press Enter, after which you should type
and press Enter again. After you’re done, do as some upcoming commands are going to tell you to.
- Choose Bootloader, then go to Recovery and operate a full data wipe of the smartphone by opting for Factory Reset/Wipe Data via Power.
- Perform a full cache wipe by choosing Wipe Cache Partition, then operate a phone’s wipe Dalvik cache by selecting, from Advanced in the Recovery Menu, the option otherwise known as Wipe Dalvik Cache.
- Step ten will need you to return to the phone’s main recovery screen, opt for Install zip from SD card and then go for the option called Choose zip from SD card.
- After you go to the new ROM .zip archive, you need to proceed to the eleventh step asking you to choose this certain file with the aid of Power. When done, confirm the flashing, then repeat everything you did just now (including what you had to perform for the previous step) so that the Gapps archive is also on the phone.
- Step twelve will require you to wait for the installation of both files to end, then go to ++++Go Back++++.
- The end of the guide is near; simply opt for the system restarting once you are in the Recovery Menu and your HTC One X will no longer miss out on the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and its opportunities.
