We’ve recently reported that HTC is currently working on bringing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on a number of HTC One devices including the HTC One X. It’s all great news because, let’s be honest, the HTC One X does not offer the smoothest Android experience in the world, regardless of whether or not you’re using the Snapdragon or the quad-core Tegra 3 version of the device. For whatever reason, most likely because of the Sense 4 UI, using the One X is not as smooth as it should be, but that’s actually a general problem with Ice Cream Sandwich and previous Android iterations.
That’s why Google decided to get real serious with Jelly Bean and started “Project Butter” in order to bring smoothness in Android handsets.
HTC One X Jelly Bean (Android 4.1)
That being said, it’s understandable why you’d like to experience Android 4.1 on your HTC One X as soon possible. Fortunately there’s a way to do so. Join us after the break, learn the details and check out the video preview depicting the One X running Jelly Bean.
Long story short, CynogenMode 10 has been released for the HTC One X. It’s basically a third party ROM that will bring Jelly Bean on your One X. The best part about it is seeing how smooth the X becomes one CM10 is installed. Browsing is faster, accessing folders is instant and simply swiping the home screen is just super-fast and lag free. It’s Project Butter at its finest so make sure you at least check out the video below (courtesy of PocketNow).
Before you decide to grab CynogenMod 10 on your HTC One X just remember a few things. If you’re running the AT&T version the appropriate ROM is currently in the alpha version so it’s kind of buggy. Also, keep in mind that rooting and flashing your One X will void its warranty, so make sure you know what you’re doing before proceeding.
That’s pretty much it. Don’t forget to check out the video preview and for more details on how to get the ROM on your One X click the link below the video.
