There are several 4.2.2 custom roms for the One X, personally I prefer LiquidRom but CyanogenMod10.1, AOKP and Paranoid are good, also MIUI if you like the iPhone thing. Official 4.2.2 won't be out until next month at the earliest. I moved this to the correct forum (HTC One X as opposed to HTC One)
