Nokia X Rooted – Google Apps installed

Nokia X

Well, we all knew that it was bound to happen, but just days after the announcement? That’s pretty amazing. The new Nokia X has already been rooted and the Google Apps installed, this despite having a locked bootloader. THe X has been cracked by members of the XDA Developers.

Once rooted, which is done but using the Framaroot app, the Nokia X runs the Google Now Launcher easily. To install the Google apps you will have load the individual .apk files using a root explorer.

Now I’m the Coolsmartphone resident custom ROM installer meddler  and I’m looking to forward to this inexpensive phone to have a play with.
