THIS PROCEDURE IS NOW OBSOLETE, PLEASE HEAD TO OUR NEW ROOT PROCEDURE INSTEAD.
AT&T branded HTC One VX comes with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor along with one gig of RAM to boost the overall performance of the device as well as not to distract the users while they’re watching HD videos and the resource-intensive game is running in the background. The configuration seems to be great and is in line with the other high-end smartphones, such as HTC One X. If you’ve purchased the device or thinking to get one, you’ll be happy to know that it’s got a root method and I assume that you already know the advantages of root access. It lets you install root-only apps, remove system apps, modify system files, to name a few.
