SYNAPSE CIRCUIT CYANOGENMOD 11 vs. HTC ONE X

SYNAPSE CIRCUIT
CYANOGENMOD 11 vs. HTC ONE X.
IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED...

#CyanogenMod #CyanogenModInstaller #Android

Good early morning, Good Friends! How are you? Oh, man! The storm was raging last night and I learned that a couple of people have lost their lives due to masonry falling onto the unsuspecting. May their souls rest in peace.

I just couldn’t go to bed without correcting a mistake that I had made in my first attempts to get CyanogenMod 11, KitKat on my HTC One X! It could very well be that some of you may be having a similar problem... Here’s what happened...

FAULT NO.1. HUMAN ERROR
Yes, it’s MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Human error! It’s proof that I am human and not an android or cyborg! Lol! It’s also proof that with perseverance one can overcome some problems when they present themselves in the name of tech!

I know where you are coming from in that most knowledgeable people have a tendency to be unforgiving when they see others struggling with what seems to be the obvious! Proof that regardless of technology supposedly serving to aid mankind it has produced some arrogant, ignorant and impatient people!

But I am proof that it is possible to enjoy learning new technological skills! And there are other people out there who are willing to share what they know!

FAULT NO. 2. THE CLOCKWORKMOD RECOVERY OR CWM RECOVERY
The ClockworkMod Recovery software was out of date. I don’t know about you, but I find the information a little hard to wade through when it comes to getting to the root (no pun intended but it works nicely as a pun) of a problem where custom MOD installations go on the HTC One X. Sometimes I HATE that phone!

Wading through the various websites offering help can be a pain in the ass! Some methods look straightforward until you try them... But I have to admit that through not being very patient I miss a few steps!

This is the site where you can get the latest version of the ClockworkMod Recovery for the HTC One X: http://www.theandroidsoul.com/latest-htc-one-x-clockworkmod-cwm-recovery/

Just take your time and follow the instructions and you’ll be updating your HTC One X in no time with the CyanogenMod 11, KitKat!

To help you out a bit: You need to get your HTC One X in Fastboot mode by rebooting the handset and depressing the power button and volume key down simultaneously. Once this is achieved you can then run the 1-click-cwm-recovery-installer as linked above!

And don’t forget to “flash” the boot.img that comes with the CyanogenMod 11, KitKat ROM (http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?type=nightly&device=endeavoru) when the handset is in Fastboot mode after the initial installation.

Oh, you need the KitKat version of the Google App Store here: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Google_Apps

You need to install this after you have installed CyanogenMod 11!

SYNAPSE CIRCUIT ROOTING


DOWNLOAD THE CYANOGENMOD INSTALLER RIGHT NOW IF YOU HAVE UPGRADED TO THE LATER MODELS OF HANDSET SUCH AS THE SAMSUNG GALAXY S3!
Go to the link below and follow the instructions... Oh, another thing... So far the installer is only available for Windows! Bummer! But then again, if you are proficient at rooting, etc then you are probably not missing much...

I hope this helps!
  

Take good care!
