    How do you flash a HOX kernel? Step by step?

    Does anybody have a guide...or know how...

    I want to flash the kernel of my HTC One X, I already rooted it and unlocked the bootloader. But how do I flash it?

    Sorry for another thread, but I really want to know.

    I have the European version.

    Believe you're posting in the wrong forum. I recommend you go to XDA-developers.com for everything android related.

    Problem is, you can't post in XDA unless you're already VIP.

    OK OP, let's see what we can do here.

    first off, you're using the European version, so let's refer to this thread first off:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1533

    One X Android Development - is for Sense ROMs...that is, ROMs which are based upon HTC's UI but have various optimizations and so on.

    One X Original Android Development - that's for non-Sense ROMS...you can find JellyBean stuff here and have no HTC UI stuff, eg. classic Google style interface.

    1) download CID Getter from the Google Play store. Find out what your CID of the phone is. After you've figured that out, you are now armed with what you can flash and what you cannot. If your phone's CID is not on the list, then you cannot flash a Sense ROM.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1957376

    Use the thread above to see the list. Is your CID there? If so, great. If not, so sorry, your choice of flashing a Sense ROM is out of the picture.

    You DID install Clockworkmod into your phone, right? Scroll down the list.

    here's a video that should lead you down the right path.

    Anyways the gist of it is:

    0) Backup your existing ROM with Clockwork Recovery mod
    1) Copy the ROM to your phone's storage(just throw it on the SDcard, not in a folder, just out there in the open). Should be the whole big .zip file. Make sure you extract the boot.img file from the zip file(JUST that file).
    2) Boot your phone into that funny mode by holding down the volume down button + power(yes it will catch a screenshot. keep holding it down).
    3) flash the boot.img file with the command "fastboot flash boot boot.img". Now flash the ROM.
    4) clear the user data and the cache
    5) Reboot

    Hey, thanks for providing it step by step. Will try it as soon as I get the chance.

    What? XDA is open for everyone. The only restriction is that you can't create a new thread/post in the Development forums if you have less than 10 posts elsewhere. VIP? Hardly.

    Seeing as you know your way around rooting and unlocking your bootloader, I'm going to assume you know your way around CWM (ClockWorkMod) and ADB too. Since the HOX does not have S-Off, you can only flash kernels through the recovery.

    To do this, select a preferred kernel (I highly recommend either faux or franco). Also make sure that your ROM is sense-based (ViperX, ARHD etc etc). It should come in a ZIP file. Open the ZIP file, extract the boot.img into your fastboot folder and boot your phone into the bootloader. Also make sure the ZIP file is put into your phone storage. If you forget, you can just mount it through recovery and have access to the storage just like when the phone is on

    Here's a direct copy&paste from faux's thread on how to flash a kernel for the HOX.

    Code:
    Here's a step by step instruction to install this kernel:
    
    [normal mode]
    1. download the above file (via phone directly or to a PC)
    2. copy the downloaded zip file to /sdcard/download/
    3. extract boot.img from the zip file to a location of your choice ON YOUR PC
    4. open up a command window (Windows) or shell terminal (Linux/Mac)
    5. connect USB cable to the phone
    6. type "adb reboot bootloader"
    [fastboot mode]
    7. type "fastboot flash boot boot.img"
    8. Once fastboot flash is completed, disconnect the USB cable
    9. Select hboot using volume buttons on the phone
    [recovery mode]
    10. Select recovery
    11. go to /sdcard/download and select the downloaded zip file and let it run its script.
    12. Once the script is done, select "reboot system now"

    Thanks, but it doesn't recognize fastboot in CMD.

    Nor does it recognize the ADB command.
