Three short days ago, AT&T's phone selection got a little bit better. Of course, I'm talking about the arrival of the HTC One X. If you already have this flagship in hand, then you'll be happy to know that a one-click root method is already available.

Disclaimer: Android Police isn't responsible for any harm to your device - proceed at your own risk.

This will automatically root, install Busybox, and SuperSU onto your One X, all while you sit back and sip some coffee. Here's how to make it happen:

This will not unlock the bootloader!
  • Download the HTC drivers for Windows
  • Download and extract it
  • Plug your phone into the computer (make sure USB debugging is enabled in Settings  > Developer options > USB debugging)
  • Double click the appropriate root file (root.bat for Windows, for Linux, or for Mac)
  • ???
  • Profit

Your device will reboot several times during the process, but once it's finished, you should have full root access. If you hit any snags along the way, head over to the source thread for support.
