With all the news around the HTC One X this past weekend One X users should be ecstatic! Considering that the phone is only $99, ROM developers are going to love to hear that the Kernel source for the AT&T HTC One X has now been released. No one knows why it’s taken so long for HTC to push the kernel source to HTCDev especially with the international version released back in early May. Many AT&T One X users were confused and wasn’t sure why HTC hadn’t released the Kernel for AT&T yet. Now the confusion is over and ROM developer can get to work!
What’s even better is that the phone is only $99 on contract with AT&T now. So if you were holding off on the HTC One X until HTC released the Kernel Source for the device, now is your chance to get it cheap and easy. If you haven’t heard that the $99 price point was confirmed and you still think it’s a rumor, we were able to confirm that the AT&T HTC One X was only $99 as of yesterday. You can check that out here.
What does all of this mean though? Will all of this benefit the average user? It won’t benefit you directly, no. If you put custom ROMs on your phone and such it will benefit you in that way. There’s been ROMs for the HTC One X before, but now that the Kernel Source has been released on HTCDev, the ROMs are about to get a whole lot more stable depending on how fast the ROM developers get to work. Other wise, this won’t benefit you a whole lot, unless your just after the $99 HTC One X.
Now that developers are able to work with their phone’s software properly and the HTC One X price has gone down, we can expect to see a influx of developers hopping on the wagon. Hopefully the ROM developers will also be able to fix some of the glitches in the software that’s been reported on the phone too. Now I think everyone’s just waiting on the USA version of the HTC’s One S Kernel Source for T-Mobile. Once HTC releases that, I think the company may have just solved world peace. That might be exaggerated a bit, but it would be nice to the Kernel Source for the One S come out now that the One X is done and in the hands of the community.
Also, since the Kernel for the One X has been released, we should be seeing a much more stable version of CyanogenMod 10 for the HTC One X.
What do you think? With the HTC One X now $99 and now that HTC just released the Kernel Source for the device, do you think we’ll be seeing an influx of new ROMs pop up, or do you even think that we’ll be seeing the Kernel Source for the USA version of T-Mobile’s HTC One S? Let us know in the comments below, we would love to hear your opinion on the matter!
