The HTC One X won’t hit shelves for a few more weeks, but that hasn’t stopped MoDaCo’s Paul O’Brien. The Android developer extraordinaire has cracked the new flagship device’s software and is offering a tool that will allow others to easily do the same once they get their hands on the HTC’s latest and greatest. The method is called Superboot and writes to a user’s handset a boot image that handles all the dirty work of rooting. It’s not quite one-click, but it’s a heck of a lot easier than manually partitioning, altering ADB, and so forth.
The HTC One X will reach European carriers some time in April. A US variant bound for AT&T is expected to launch over the summer.
