Topic # 112711 17-Dec-2012 23:38 Send private message

I need a little clarification on this one, as the threads have got me a little confused.  Am using a Telecom HTC One X.  Currently has Android 4.0.3 and software version 1.29

Several apps that I use work better on root, so I have rooted my phone using Hasoon's all in one kit.  This all works great. Except of course the phone won't allow me to install OTA updates, and it just won't stick.

All I did was put Clockworkmod on my phone, nothing else at the moment.

So, my question is, what needs to be rolled back, or how do I get the phone to accept the update? OTA_ENDEAVOR_U_ICS_40_S_Telecom_NZ_WWE_2.17.781.3-1.29.781.14_release  

Do I need an .img file for 1.29, or is it simpler than that because I've only put Clockworkmod on there?

Lots of threads out there, but it's come to the point where it's all noise.

My S3 wouldn't let me do an OTA update to the 2 Degrees 4.1.1 even after I used Triangle Away to clear the custom binary count and set everything to Samsung Official and unrooted. My Device status under "About Device" still said "Modified" so it was never going to work. I just downloaded the whole thing from SamMobile and flashed it in Odin

Install Mobile Odin Pro on your phone, download the release files to your phone and install manually. Simple bit of software to use.

Dratsab: Install Mobile Odin Pro on your phone, download the release files to your phone and install manually. Simple bit of software to use.

Are you sure that is compatible with the HTC One X?

EDIT: Oh, I see, you meant for the second poster, not the OP. Yeah, don't do that on your One X, OP.

Well, I won't try that then.

Nobody has suggestions or clarification? Surely this can't be that uncommon?

If all you want to do is return to stock and getting OTA updates the simplest thing would be to do a full factory reset. 

Otherwise this thread over at XDA Developers may help you.

Have to agree with Dratsab XDA will have the info you require and to be honest a factory reset does not roll back a upgraded OS or at least it didn't with my LG O2x which is sadly still waiting for a official ICS or even better Jellybean release.

I just can't be bothered upgrading to a non official release until the official one is out sometimes it's not worth it.

The OP's problem is something that can be fixed but it's a downside of rooting your phone it's easy to go one way but not always that easy to switch it back to it's original state.

Ok, thanks Dratasb, that forum post answers it for me, and it looks like I'm back where I thought I was.

It seems difficult to find the 1.29 version of the Telecom to get the recovery.img I need. This thread is at least a start 'update OTA without relocking the bootloader'.  I have googled a bit and can't find it.  Nobody at Telecom will be willing to help either :(

Root access was so much easier in 2.x, it would just work without having to fluff around with mods etc. I don't really want to do a lot, just use apps like Clocksync, Titanium Backup, Market Enabler etc which you need root access to work properly.

further question:

is the recovery.img different between versions?

If I were to use the recovery.img from the next update to get rid of clockworkmod, will will cause any issues?
