Finally CM10 is now available for the HTC One X, so users can enjoy the awesome Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update on their device. HTC didn’t manage to release the Jelly Bean update for the One X yet, so you can give it a try with CM10, which is a custom ROM based on stock AOSP, which means it won’t come with any HTC or carrier bloatware, but just pure Android.
The CyanogenMod team has been working faster than the phone makers and released Android 4.1 Jelly Bean based CM10 earlier than them, though not in a stable version.
Currently the HTC One X is running on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, customized by the Sense 4.0 UI, which not everyone likes. Most people prefer the stock Android experience, as the latest versions come with amazing an amazing UI.
If you decided to try the nightly CM10 build, I recommend you to perform a backup of your device, because you might want to return to the current firmware version due to lack of features or bugs. As I told you before, it’s not a stable build and the CyanogenMod team doesn’t recommend it for daily use. Though if you can live with some crashes and the need to reboot it from time to time then you should be fine.
We will soon release a guide to help you update your HTC One X to CM10, so stay put while we give it a try and write it. We will let you know how it works and maybe record a video of it so you can see it in action.
