You didn’t think the modders that form the very underpinnings of Android’s base would let a little unicorn like the One X slide by unscathed, did ya? That polycarbonate überphone hasn’t even made it out of the official launch gate and yet, thanks to MoDaCo, it’s already been rooted. Sidestepping the usual dense how-to’s typically associated with achieving root on non-Nexus devices, our eager beaver hacker’s compiled Superboot: a one-step, no fuss boot image that automates the process for you sans the need for adb commands.
