Long after releasing the kernel source for other variants of the One X (as well as the US One S and EVO LTE), HTC has finally released the source for AT&T's variant.

Users may recall that the AT&T-connected One X was left out of the initial kernel source code drop just after HTC delivered a somewhat disheartening statement to the Verge indicating that the device was not eligible to participate in the Taiwanese manufacturer's bootloader unlocking program due to unspecified "restrictions," which many users read as "AT&T says no."

While it appears that the AT&T-connected One X still isn't compatible with HTC's bootloader unlocking tool (and may never be), the release of its kernel source code is still positive news for tweakers, tinkerers, and developers alike.

      Not to rain on your parade, but you still have to give up your IMEI and void your warranty, and even then it's not a full bootloader unlock.

        No you don't. That is only one method of unlocking it. There is another way of unlocking it and all you need is root access. Stop spreading false information.

        And we do have the full unlock. We can flash radios and boot.imgs from recovery, along with just about anything else. We are one of the few devices from HTC that can do that.

        The article is incorrect in that the HTC One X is not unlockable through htcdev. It is and has been for a while. Go to
        http://htcdev.com/bootloader/ and select "All other supported models". The (not so) fine print on this page states clearly

        Select “All other supported models” if you cannot find your phone in this list. Devices launched after 9/2011 will be shipped with the unlock capability. Please check back often for updates on the unlock status of additional devices.

        We have the UNOFFICIAL method... both via htcdev and not...

    Maybe someday HTC will get around to dropping the kernel source code for the EVO 3D. Of course, that would require Sprint actually rolling out the ICS update first.

    The amount of time it's taken for that update to happen is ridiculous at this point. Sad but true.
