Update At&t htc one x Evita to latest version of android lollipop Via Pacman custom rom

Update your at&t htc one x Evita to latest version of android lollipop by flashing pacman custom rom.Htc is no longer interested in updating one x to latest version of android which is proved by not rolling any updated after jellybean.But folks at xda are always there to keep this device up to date.

We had many custom roms available for this carrier variant of htc one x but most of then are still stuck on kitkat.This is not bad as kitkat htc one x roms are quite stable and only few developers have updated their source to lollipop.One such rom is Pacman rom.

Evita is device specific code name for At&t Htc one X.Remember that this is also the code name for one xl too.so you can flash this one xl too

If you still stuck on jellybean and want to update it lollipop but don't know from where you need to start then guide will sure help by covering from bootloader unlocking to flashing rom via recovery.So you don't need to worry if you have a recovery or not as we are going to help you to install recovery too if you don't have one.

Follow this full guide carefully if you are starting from scratch and we take no responsibility if your beloved phone is cursed to brick by your own mistakes and no one except you is responsible for that. So proceed at your own risk.

Remember that this guide is only for at&t Htc one x only which has a snapdragon s4 plus dual core cpu clocked at 15.ghz not the international one which has tegra quad core cpu.So flashing this rom on  inter nation one will brick the device for sure.Don't even think of flashing this if you don't have at&t model.Though recovery doesn't allow you to flash roms of other models still it is mandatory for us to mention this.

This rom is also flashable on htc one xl which too comes with snapdragon s4 processor which is same as that of at&t.
