1- CUSTOM RECOVERY:
To flash custom recovery on your HTC One XL, you have two (2) options and they are;
i- Unlock the bootloader following the instructions here; "Unlocking HTC Bootloader" and then, flash custom recovery on it following the instructions here; "Flash Custom Recovery On HTC Using Command Prompt".

ii- Root the phone following the instructions here: "How to Root HTC One XL" and then, flash custom recovery on it following the instructions here: "Flash Custom Recovery On Any Rooted Android".
