Users rocking the ATT variant of the HTC One X may be feeling a little left out of the HTCDev party right about now, given that the device cannot be unlocked using officially endorsed methods. Luckily, however, the developers here on XDA hate being locked down just about as much as they hate stifled innovation. To that end, XDA Senior MemberÂ grankin01Â has come up with an easy-to-follow guide that will take you through the steps required to obtain HTCDev unlock on your ATT One X.
The gist of the workaround is that you first dump an image of yourÂ /dev/block/mmcblk0p4 partition. After that is done, simply open the file in a hex editor, look for a certain offset, and modify the CID to read as the Rogers variant rather than the ATT variant. After this, you’re a few simple adb commands away from dd-ing the modified mmcblkop4 partition into place. Once that is done, reboot to bootloader, verify that you’ve indeed changed the device cidÂ using the fastboot oem readcidÂ command, and then proceed to use the standard HTCdev unlock method.
Those interested in unlocking their ATT HTC One X should head over to the development thread. Proceed at your own risk, though. A few missed keystrokes could land you a seriously saddening paperweight. Great work, grankin01!
