How to check the CID of your HTC One X?

You probably want to check your CID or Customer ID to know whether you can get Android Jelly Bean on your HTC One X phone. Follow this method to quickly find out your CID.
You should have adb and other sdk files, which you can download from the android site or get the lean zip file of only the essential files from xda developers forum. After extracting the files, follow these steps.

1) Set fastboot on your phone.
2) Connect your phone to the PC. You don't have to switch it off. Just connect it through USB in Charging mode.
3) Open the command prompt.
4) Go to the folder containing adb.exe.
5) Type adb shell setprop ro.cid and press enter key.

Your CID (for example, HTC_038) will be displayed on the screen.

If this helped you or if you faced any problems following these steps, please let me know by leaving a comment. Thanks!
