Android Overload: HTC One X receives Jelly Bean on Telus, Lookout Lock Cam snaps pics of unsuspecting thieves, and more

The Android Overload is where we feature the biggest news stories from throughout the day (see above video), as well as stash all of the stories/articles/news bits that didn’t make it onto our front page. But just because they weren’t featured doesn’t mean they aren’t worth taking a look at. In fact, there’s almost always a little something here for everyone. So, take a look around and let us know what you find.

    Now that Telus and Rogers have updated the One X, AT&T needs to step up to the plate and get the One X updated in America.

    I mean I could be wrong, but I think America is the only remaining country missing the One X Jelly Bean update…

      I believe so. I couldn’t wait anymore and rooting and unlocking is really easy. CM10 runs awesome on this phone

      • tonkotsu

        yup, if anyone cares about update, they should root. Otherwise, seriously, stop complaining

    • tonkotsu

      root. Otherwise, seriously, stop complaining

        Uhh no tonkotsu….I live in Canada and have the Rogers HTC One X with the official Jelly Bean update…I’m simply stating that America needs to step up it’s game since they are behind the rest of the world with this specific update…

        And second, not everyone want’s to root their phone, void their warranty and install and unstable custom rom…

          The whole thought process people like you think and constantly say: “void your warranty and install an unstable custom rom” is SO 2009 and such a weak statement/mentality!
          1. voiding ones warranty is nearly impossible being that EVERY phone you root can just as easily be returned to stock, thus “restoring” ones warranty.
          2. unstable roms are a thing of the past (at least most roms) Regardless of what device you have, there are plenty of “stable daily driver” roms out there it’s ridiculous!
          If you don’t want to root your phone, that’s your prerogative. But stop spreading this type of mis-information around the interwebz. If you can read and follow directions, you can root your phone AND return it to stock.
          Just sayin…

            Dude relax. I looked through the XDA’s evita HTC One XL forum and i’m still confused by many things.

            I still don’t quite understand how to root the phone. Everywhere I look, it shows how to do this for the International version or the AT&T version which has a locked bootloader and requires an exploit to root and unlock it.

            But how does it work for the Rogers version which has an unlockable bootloader already? What I mean is would I have to unlock it through the HTC Bootloader Unlock website and then flash a custom recovery, and then I can flash Super-user? I don’t get this part since the guides are for AT&T and require CID changing and exploits to temp root and unlock the bootloader.

            Everywhere I see talks about rooting first to unlock the boot-loader but I’m not sure how it works the other way around.

            I looked through the rom list and I was only able to find one stock(ish) Sense 4+ rom that had no known bugs. All the other ones are too flashy with too many creative liberties taken, are 4.0,4 roms (which I don’t want) or stock google type roms like Cyanogen Mod 10.1 (which is still only nightlies for my version of the HTC One X, I need to know that every feature works properly) and in addition I don’t want a stock Google type rom, I like Sense 4+…

    I would love to see Google fiber is my area.

  • bigcix

    Why root and get featured that don’t work properly. I rather complain!

    • prairiedogn

      • BigCiX

        Why would I.
