We all know Nokia is already to launch the next series of Nokia X called as Nokia X2. Nokia X2 has lot to offer also the company has changed the user interface as per the User reviews and have added home-screen button with their back button. As per the news, Nokia is said to launch this device with a dual boot service. A dual boot device means you can use two OS windows and android on same device same which used on our PC or Laptops with Linux and Windows. There were many such tries to develop such kind of environment by all the leading stars but have never succeeded. This news of dual boot has made users/customers crazy and an eagerness is seen amongst them. This news shouldn’t be considered unless we actually see or Nokia says so.

Nokia X

Why such a rumour can’t be credible?

Earlier both the owners of windows and android have announced not to shake hands and work as a team to get such a common platform for the device market.

As Nokia is now owned by Microsoft its grateful to still have Nokia X range because it will decrease the need of Microsoft’s windows OS for phones. This will also make sure that user use more of Microsoft services instead of Google play services.

There are many technical issues faced with respect to hardware support. The device hardware as for now isn’t capable enough to have such a OS changeover as per user will.

If this hardware issues works out we as user will be left with no internal memory for our use as both the OS will require to be in the internal memory thus this will cause device to lag and then in turn lead to device getting hang.

What actually can be possible?

This rumour is too good to be true but the thing that’s possible is Microsoft OS allows Google play services to work on its devices i.e. The OS will be compatible with the android (.apk) files on your nokia device.

Blackberry owners incorporate this method where it allows user to install android application on their blackberry devices that possess Blackberry 10.0 OS and above. In this, the system interface and all the facilities are as per the blackberry but they have made android application compatibility with their market to let more and more user switch to blackberry lighter and newer OS.


This dual boot news is definitely a no go as in for now but as the technology is advancing, so are the need we never now a common user platform arises one day that will allow all types of OS to work within selves without any change over or any other software or hardware issues. If this doesn’t work OS developers have to work out some crossover software like blackberry did for user to keep them engage in their devices.

Is your fast lane beast suffering from rapid battery drainage? Yes! I am obviously talking about your cute colourful candy bar Nokia X!

Actually Nokia X is more about hardware and less about its specifications. There is no need to get surprised, it’s a budget phone and you have to compromise in its quality one way or another. Nokia manufacturers have nurtured their Nokia X hardware with intensive care under its price limit. But this forked android is lagging far behind in some essential features.512 MB RAM will surely conflict with the smooth running of applications. Its own video player cannot play high resolution video clips (no even 720p).Every time we have to visit third-party websites to get android applications; this might be exposing our Smartphone to vulnerable viruses floating on internet. Thus, these conflictions lead us to know that our Nokia X needs improvement in every aspect.

Nokia X

Talking about its battery, it has only got 1500mAh battery. What can we expect from 1500mAh battery? It is surely going to get empty after 4-6 hours of continuous usage. Nokia has failed to give better performance in battery backup of their first forked android but they have resolved this problem in their upper versions of Nokia X which are yet to arrive like Nokia XL. Nokia X being a budget phone had to suffer in some aspects so Nokia can’t be blamed at all .We has to utilize our low performance battery in filtered way so that we can make increment in its talk time.

Now here are some important tips and tricks which can extend your Nokia X battery life. Perform these actions, update your phone setting in this way and you will surely get benefited:

1)      Charging: Whenever you charge your Nokia X Smartphone, charge it completely. It increases battery lifetime and recycles the already stored charge in it. In layman’s language we say making it refresh.

2)      Display Brightness: Keep it as low as possible. But it is being advised not to keep it too low that it may harm your eyes.

3)      Speakers: Loudspeakers also take a genuine share from the battery of a Smartphone. So always use wired headsets because they consume less and minimise the use of loudspeakers.

4)      Bluetooth: It drains the battery of your Smartphone like a vampire. So, always make least use of Bluetooth and don’t use Bluetooth headsets at all because they not only drain faster battery but their longer usage is also dangerous to your health.

5)      Background Data: Always close background data when you are not running internet because it keeps draining your battery in background running applications like whatsapp, facebook ,skype, etc .

6)      Backlight Timer: Set a short time for backlight to go off when your phone is idle.

7)      You can also set your Smartphone on Flight mode when you don’t have to receive calls and notifications. But it’s not recommended much because it’s hardly possible for any one in these days to opt out of attending calls and messages. Its part of our lifestyle now.

Congratulations!!! Finally the most anticipated Nokia X has got its custom 1st ever custom ROM. Before installing custom ROM, It is very important to know you phone’s interior architecture. Nokia X is operating on Nokia x software platform 1.0 which is actually forked version of android 4.1 developed on Android Open Source Project (AOSP).This Nokia X platform can run almost 75% android applications which was made possible only because of brilliant effort from Finnish software giant Nokia. Nokia x was lagging behind because of few drastic anomalies which could not be ignored .Like It had got no support from any of the services provided by Google. It could never have been possible to run Google play store or Hangouts on this forked version of android4.1.0. A giant leap from xda members made it possible to get complete Google services worked on Nokia X by creating its vanilla custom ROM.A senior member of xda called as dhacker29 designed a custom Android 4.1.2 ROM for nokia X .This firmware is actually build from code Aurora branch jb_rel_2.0.3.Most fascinating thing is that no problems have been detected till now after installing custom vanilla ROM .It has shown improvement in noise issues during voice call, better network and better application support.

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…..
