While giving the AT&T HTC One X's firmware a look over, I ran across a a vulnerability that would allow us to gain root access. It turned out not to be all that useful at the time, as another root was released the same day. With the latest 1.85 firmware leak, the previously published root has been fixed, making the one I found earlier useful once again.
Update: AT&T disabled the app installation features of Ready2Go thereby breaking this root process. We don't have an updated root method at this time.
This vulnerability happens to be in carrier bloat - specifically an app called ATT Ready2Go (also know as dashconfig), which is shipping on many new AT&T LTE devices.

Mugen, I think I speak for everyone when I say "please stop." I mean, really? Look at their latest creation, a 5400mAh extended battery for the already gargantuan Galaxy Note:
If you own a Galaxy Note and have grown tired of carrying around a small diesel generator, though, this may be the solution to all of your problems. Of course, no one said this solution didn't come with problems of its own. Like looking as though you have some sort of awful malignant growth attached to your thigh should you dare to put your Note in your pocket with this monster attached.
