HTC One X has power management problem says custom ROM developer
The incorrect APK placement is costing the HTC One X user 10% to 20% of his battery life. The good news is that the fix from mike 1986 will recapture that missing battery life. If you want to use the unofficial patch, you will need to install the new APK on their HTC One X via ADB and change the permissions. You can see the instructions from the developer himself at the sourcelink. If messing with your handset is foreign to you, we'd suggest waiting for the official fix from the Taiwan based manufacturer. Until then, just remember to travel with your charger.

XDA should be hired by the manufacturers...

ND, at least samsung hires from devs. Rumor has it that after Steve K got hired on that other guys started getting job offers too by various companies, so maybe they are finally catching on to what the "small guys" are capable of.
which is mainly fixing their buggy android overlays.. lol

Isn't this great news?
This seemed to be the biggest gripe about this phone based on most reviews and if you see a 10-20% instant improvement on battery life, it only solidifies its role as the best android phone on the market.

Taco must be lurking as I see way too many red thumbs for no apparent reason

I've always said it, manufacturers need to just build the phone and processor and put stock android. Then unlock the bootloader and let the devs take care of the rest.

No its not the misplacement of the file its just Android itself. Ok I just had to say that lol jk.. you guys can take a joke.

I don't have a problem with my One x! In fact, I find the battery life amazing as my Xperia S barely lasts a day, great phone otherwise, and my iP4s is usually at around 15% by the end of the day. On the basis of similar usage, my One x is at 50% at the end of the day and has only been below 20% on one day and that was after hours of playing music and watching movies/music videos!
Will still await the update, if there is one, as this would give me stellar battery life!
