Essential Pre Requisites:

  • Data in your One X may get lost or corrupted in the process of applying this update. So, it’s better to back up the data with the help of below mentioned steps and not with the HTC Sync tool as it won’t recognize the device in the custom recovery image.

SMS – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log – Call Log and Restore
Images, Songs, Videos, Files – Copy to internal / External SD Card,
APN and MMS Settings – Note down from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • Minimum charge left in the device should be at least 60% so as to ensure that device doesn’t get turned Off in the middle of firmware update.
  • Enable the USB Debugging in your HTC One X from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”. The USB Debugging option should be ticked.
  • Disable all the antivirus suites in your computer and uninstall the same in your device as these tools generally tend to interrupt the process of firmware update.
  • After following all the above mentioned steps, it’s time to head to next page where we have summed up a detailed guide on how to apply this Cyanogen mod 9 update in your HTC One X device.

    Hi, since I already have a rooted one x and installed a couple of custom roms, I was itching to get cyanogenmod a go. But since flashing it I hv found it to be in complete. One apart from what’s already mentioned is utube is not supported.
    Since I have tried to re install from backups I m now unable to boot into clockwork mod recovery. I’ve tried re installing from from manager but same result. Cyanogenmod just keeps booting back up. Seems I am stuck with an incomplete from. Help appreciated anyone.
