The High Tech Computer Corporation has just released the unlocked source code for the HTC One X mobile phone, allowing passionate owners to tweak the handset in several different ways and possibly, unlock the bootloader. The file is now available to download and works for several countries, inside the European space.
In this release HTC has included multiple regions, as Australia, France, New Zealand, Taiwan, Germany, Check Republic, Netherlands, Poland, India and of course, the United Kingdom.
The file can only be used with certain carriers: Vodafone, T-Mobile, Orange and O2. The version of the software kernel is 2.6.39 and comes loaded with the Android 'Ice Cream Sandwich' 4.0 OS.
Downloading the file, which is only 111MB, allows the owner to perform several hacking actions, including unlocking the bootloader. The manufacturer has not announced when the file will be made public for other countries, including the US.
The move certainly makes the device more appealing, giving potential owners one more reason to purchase a handset with an 8-megapixel camera, with the dual video and still shooting capabilities, 32GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM.
The smartphone also integrates a quad-core Nvidai Tegra 3 chip clocked at 1.5GHz, and a Super IPS LCD2 touchscreen, which is 4.7-inch wide and has an HD quality resolution (720 by 1,280 pixels).
