a difference in terms of raw processing
power — but the user interface is smoother, it takes less time to load
apps or switch between running apps, and the phone even seems to boot or
reboot more quickly.
At the moment it takes a little longer than it used to for the screen to
turn on once you hit the power button, but that’s a small price to pay.
Unfortunately installing the new builds of CM10.1 can be a bit of a
pain. Make sure to read through the development thread at xda-developers
before getting started, but here’s the basic outline of what you need
S-Off your phone
Re-lock your bootloader if it’s unlocked (this might not be strictly necessary if you have S-Off, but it’s what I did).
Update to the 3.18 RUU (this will replace your operating system, bootloader, and recovery)
Flash TWRP or CWM recovery
Download and flash the latest nightly build
Download and flash the latest gApps
If you’ve already rooted and installed a custom recovery on your device,
it’s also a very, very good idea to backup your device using CWM or
TWRP before you get started. I’d also recommend backing up your apps and
data using Titanium Backup. You can then restore all your apps after
updating, otherwise you’ll need to reinstall apps one at a time and you
may lose some data associated with those apps.

While I was able to perform most of the above tasks with the help of an
HTC One X All-in-One Toolkit, some commands didn’t seem to work
automatically so I had to enter them manually in a command prompt. So if
you’re not comfortable working with adb and fastboot commands, you may
run into trouble upgrading.
The good news is that it’s relatively difficult to brick a device, and
even if you end up with a boot loop (your device gets stuck at the boot
screen), you should be able to get into fastboot by pressing and holding
the volume down and power buttons to turn on the device, and from there
you can boot into recovery and restore from any backups you’ve made.
