    I have an international One X on stock image. Followed the instructions but end up in a bootloop on the Ressurection Remix animation. Waited for an hour to cut it off, rerun the whole thing and same result. Any suggestions anyone?

    • Do this thing and your problem will be solved!
      #Go to recovery
      #Select “wipe cache partition” and “Wipe Dalvik Cache” under advance option to perform Dalvik cache wiping.

  • Leo Bastianelli

    Hi Guys! Has anyone tried it? How did it go? I’m supposed to buy a one x tomorrow but it will depend on if someone tells me if this works or no. Because if not, I’ll just go for a Moto G that I don’t like that much. I dream of having a one x

  • Phillip Clemmit

    No joy here, just get the same ‘Ressurection Remix animation’ bootloop despite wiping the cache after flash. If you look on http://www.resurrectionremix.c… the one x is not actually a supported device !!

    • Phillip Clemmit

      Just figured it out, I never flashed the Boot.img after flashing the RR zip and GAPPS. Noob here… Now working, thank you…

      • Farhan Rajput

        How did you flash the boot img ? I am stuck at the Ressurection Remix animation. It drained all of my battery but still nothing and I tried powering it OFF and then ON again. Still had no luck.

  • Stuart Straughan

    Got lollipop working on my HTC one x, easy install res logo did hang on initial boot. Powered phone off and it worked fine. Only issue it eats the battery, seen it go down 10% in about 5mins

    • Rahul S Raj

      Your battery issue is for real? I mean, still pretty bad?

  • Jitu Singh

    use the latest one 5.2.9 whic is working fine for me. although 5.3.3 is the most recent version.

  • Jitu Singh

    There is no app for Integrated GPS and FM Radio chip . So it becomes useless.

  • Vipin Dhingra

  • Kanwarpreet

    Hi, Does this work with HTC OneX PLUS as well or Only HTC OneX?

  • Flo

    I had trouble installing gapps with TWRP, I installed the latest clockwork recovery instead and was able to install gapps with no problem.
    You have to wait a good 10 minutes on the boot animation.
    Maybe it will help someone.

    Those all stuck at boot animation ..unzip the rom file and you will find boot.img ..flash this boot.img by using “fastboot flash boot boot.img” whilst the device is in bootloader (fastboot).
    People getting status 7 error use twrp recovery insted of cwm..just flash the new revovery it will overwrite the old one.
