If you own the HTC One X and feel that this smartphone, while powerful enough as it is already, needs a little bit more ‘oomph’ in terms of the user experience, then you might want to check out the Cyanogenmod 9 ROM release which will offer a user experience that is not too far away from what the stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system is able to deliver. Majority of the HTC One X’s features will work with Cyanogenmod 9, although the stunning camera as well as Wi-Fi hotspot capability seem to be experiencing issues, not to mention having the handset’s 3G connection go through some lock in troubles at first. If you want Cyanogenmod 9 running on the HTC One X, then you should not have any problems with mobile data, making and receiving calls, sending and receiving SMSes.
If you have installed Cyanogenmod 9, also take note that the developer would have remapped the HTC One X’s hardware buttons, where the multitasking button now functions as the Android “Menu” button. Just bear in mind that installing custom ROMs of Android on your handset will void your smartphone’s warranty, not to mention there is always the risk of bricking your handset – meaning everything on it will disappear into the digital Valhalla if you do not have any backup.
