I was introduced to the world of flashing by Windows Mobile years back. Since then, I have flashed Symbian, Android and iOS devices quite a bit. However, I am done with rooting and flashing. After flashing the Nokia E7 to experience Belle OS on it while Nokia delayed many months ago, I made up my mind not to return to rooting and flashing my mobile devices any more. The idea is to experience the pains of each devices as the average user does.
I ran into a couple of articles about rooting and flashing the HTC One X recently, and I got dizzy reading through the steps. Not that i couldn’t follow those steps and get it done if I wanted to, but please….! It looked like a university degree is needed to do such a simple thing as root the One X.
Take a look: Root ANY HTC One X [One-Click Method].
If that’s the one-click method, what would the ten-click method be like?
You geeky/nerdy types go right ahead and root and flash. Me? If a device is severely handicapped from the manufacturer, it is crap. I either suffer it that way, or out the window it goes.
Dear Lord, one-click?! Sheeesh.
