Root AT&T HTC One X/HTC One XL on Firmware version 1.85


A few days ago an update version 1.85 released for the AT&T HTC One X and HTC One XL that comes with numerous good things and more but it voids the root access on the device, but now you need to worry about it, a one-click root is available to root the smartphone on 1.85, thanks to XDA developer member designgears who found this method. It may not work when AT&T detects it so do quickly, it’s a best root for you.

Do bear in mind that the method will work on AT&T HTC One X and HTC One XL running software version 1.85, so don’t try it on any other device. You’ll need a Windows PC with  device drivers installed, download drivers from here and disable all system tools such as HTC Sync, antivirus, firewall program, please make a backup of your device data such as SMS, internet setting, contacts music files etc because the below procedure may wipe data, you can sync your contacts with Gmail account and for messages use SMS apps, lastly use file expert app to backup apps, set the device as “Charge Only” when you plug the phone to PC, turn the USB Debugging on, to do so just tap Menu> Settings> Application> Development, then disable the fastboot from  Settings > Power menu. 

DISCLAIMER: Please proceed the below guide at your own risk, Android Egis will not be held responsible if your device lost data or get damaged following this guide.

Instructions

Step #1: Download the root package to your PC and unzip the downloaded 185_root_script.zip into a folder.

Step #2: Plug the device to PC using USB cable.

Step #3: Open the folder where you’ve unzipped above file and run r00t.bat file. Then follow on screen instructions.

If you are stuck at “waiting for device to reboot” for a long time or you get “/data/local.prop was not created, exit the script, try again.” followed by lots of junk, reboot your phone and push your clock forward two days, reboot, and try again.

Once the rooting is done, the device will reboot itself. That’s it, head over to Google Play Store and download the root checker app to make sure the device is rooted.
