Nokia X

Here We Go:

Follow the steps given below carefully to flash your nokia x stock ROM and install custom ROM on it:

Simply download all the software’s given below from any source you like.
1 Data Package Manager 4.2
2 Nokia Care Suit
3 UserGroupsConfiguration (needs to be unzipped).

Before getting started please remove your sim card and sd card from your nokia X.

Open Nokia Care Suit and run Data Package Manager. Be careful at running Nokia Care Suit, if it fails to get authenticated then Select File>work Online>Ok.

People who have already downloaded custom ROM will need to transfer those files in c;/Program Data/Nokia/Packages/Products/RM-xxx(xxx will be your own product type).

Now you are ready to flash you Nokia X stock ROM:

Start Nokia Care Suit Software and open Product Support Tool for Store 5.0.Now choose Work Offline and remain in No Connection mode.

Go to Product Support Tool for Store 5.0 > File > Open Product.
Now choose your product by matching its product code (RM-xxx as illustrated earlier)

Now Go to Update List and choose the stock ROM which you have already downloaded and then click start.

This needs a lot of patience .Now you have to wait for sometime till the verification process is completed and flashing starts.

Don’t worry if it misbehaves a little or shows error this is because the connection is lost at the time of flash start up.

Now plug in USB port into your PC.
Switch off your nokia x and simultaneously press volume down and power button and keep it pressed for a while (at least 15 seconds) till your phone vibrates .Release screen lock/power off button and after a while release volume down key also.

Connect your phone now with your PC through already plugged in USB.

It might again start misbehaving like showing error messages but don’t worry you just need to simply change the USB port. While flashing your Nokia X this message might appear” you have chosen not assigned product for this device do you want to continue” Press OK.

Congratulations your Vanilla Android 4.1.0 Jellybean Nokia x is ready…..
