HTC One X Gets SuperBoot Root Before Release, Sort Of
Ok, rule number one about rooting a product: If you cracked the code, keep it to yourself until the product gets launched or you’ll probably see an OEM gaining their lead on you. The HTC One X is probably a month away from getting released to the public and already it seems that MoDaCo has figured out a way to get SuperBoot to do some rooting fun. It’s sadly not the one-click solution that every mortal like you and me love, but hey, it’s still there.
Probably my only concern about this success is talking about it so early in the game. They just gave HTC a full month to go back to their code, review it again and make sure that they don’t release it unless it’s root-proof. That’s the only reason why we consider that even if SuperBoot support exists, it sort of doesn’t guarantee that it’ll work on the finally released product.
Anyway, join me in crossing our fingers for things to continue working once you and I hit the “Buy Now” button. The HTC One X is probably one of our favorite devices launched at MWC and you can bet we’ll do our best to not only get it, but to root it for your viewing pleasure.
