Owner of an NVIDIA Tegra 3-powered HTC One X? Been waiting for Cyanogenmod 9? Today is your lucky day! Cyanogenmod 9 has been released for the Tegra 3-powered HTC One X, with the interface offering a much more stock Android 4.0 ICS feel, with HTC's Sense 4.0 UI locked back in its closet.
With Cyanogenmod 9 loaded, the HTC One X looks more like Samsung's stock GALAXY Nexus, which isn't so much of a bad thing if you're not a fan of HTC's Sense 4.0 UI. The people behind the release, TripNRaVeR of the TripNDroid Mobile Engineering team are the ones who released this particular build, and whilst they've used the open-source Cyanogenmod 9 files, the release is not 'officially sanctioned' by the Cyanongenmod 9 group.
Most functions work on the HTC One X, apart from the camera and Wi-Fi hotspot functions. There is one revision the Cyanogenmod 9 build brings to HTC One X users, is that it remaps the device's hardware buttons. The multitasking button has been reworked to initiate the 'menu' function, whilst the multitasking menu is now made available by holding down the home button.
