With the new ROM it is now possible to get the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS for the international variant of the HTC One X.
The ROM has arrived courtesy XDA Developers member TripNRaVeR and his TripNDroid Mobile Engineering team, and based on Android 4.2, the ROM has a hardware Menu key that is mapped to the Recent Tasks button.

Before going ahead with the flash, it is important to note that the following instructions are only meant to be used with the HTC One X, model number PJ46100, and applying these instructions on another device or model may lead to certain undesired consequences.
Moreover, users undertake the installation at their own risk and MobilenApps will not be held responsible for any damages that could happen to the device after following the instructions. It is better that users read and understand the whole guide first before actually performing the instructions.
