How to root the HTC One XL (generic / Telstra)

HTC One XL — Review

HTC has upped its game from the One X to the LTE-enabled One XL and it's worth every cent. The HTC One XL isn't a design we've never seen before; it's the HTC One X with a few tweaks.

Telstra have opened up expressions of interest for the upcoming HTC One XL -- the LTE (4G) version of the HTC One X. The only major differences between the two devices is the CPU and, of course, the inclusion of a 4G radio. The CPU change isn't something to get up-in-arms about though, as although the One XL runs a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU, it's based off Cortex-A15 architecture which will rock your socks...
