How to root & install Google Play on your Nokia X, X+ and XL

How to root & install Google Play on your Nokia X, X+ and XL

There are many guides on the web by this name but every method has some deficiency and does not fulfill the particular requirements.

So I decided to write a comprehensive guide about Rooting your Nokia X, X+ and XL and installing Custom Apps like Google Play Store!

Nokia has its own app store but it is not yet developed to a level that would be sufficient for all the customers. Even you can’t install Whatsapp to from Nokia Store. So we must have a work-around to that and that would be installing the official Play Store app by Google.

The tactic of Nokia by not providing App Store is not very successful because we can solve that. The best solution to that is: Rooting of your device.
