    When I did this my phone now says ***TAMPERED*** ***UNLOCKED*** what does this mean? Running Rogers HTC One X software 1.94.631.6

      Um, did you try anything else too (any other way to unlock it), apart from the official way to unlock given above? That might be causing it. But anyway, you’re good to install cwm recovery, root your One X, and do more stuff. No problem with custom stuff.

      If for a reason, you take your One X to HTC service center, and the guy is knowledgeable enough to check bootloader status, he might deny you warranty. But that happens with official HTC unlock bootloader method too, with just Unlocked (no tampered thing here) written over there. So, it’s okay. Have fun with your unlocked HTC One X super phone.

        The thing is now it won’t let me flash the Clockwork recovery so I cannot flash anything on my phone… when I flash the partition it only says

        “C:Android>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
        sending ‘recovery’ (5452 KB)… OKAY
        writing ‘recovery’… OKAY”

        and it won’t let me boot into Clockwork. Do you have any ideas?

      • RonnPonce

        Yeah but the thing now is that it won’t let me flash the Clockwork recovery onto my phone. It only says,

        “C:Android>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
        sending ‘recovery’ (5452 KB)… OKAY
        writing ‘recovery’… OKAY”

        And won’t let me boot into recovery. Do you have and ideas?
        I already tried “clearing the cache”. With no avail…
        Thanks

      • Ronn Ponce

        The one problem now is that my phone will not allow me to flash the Clockwork recovery. When I follow the instructions all it says it,

        “C:Android>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
        sending ‘recovery’ (5452 KB)… OKAY
        writing ‘recovery’… OKAY”

        But it will not allow me boot into recovery. I already tried to “fastboot erase cache” with no luck. Do you have any ideas?

        Thanks

      • Ronn Ponce

        As well if I relock the bootloader will it erase all of my data?

    Error Code: 160.

    Is this phone prohibited from unlocking? Any way to get the phone unlocked from here?
