If you guys missed it, Nokia has been releasing some Android smartphones in hopes of retaining their clients. Most of these devices aren’t something special to talk about but still they are solid and sturdy midrange devices. The only downside to these devices is the fact that they don’t come with Play Store installed, so if you want to enjoy the full Play Store library of apps, our advice is to root your phone with a simple tool which we will teach you how to use down below.
Disclaimer: We take no responsibility for any damages done to your device either during or after the process; please proceed at your own risk.
Prerequisites: You don’t really need anything special for this process just get a computer, a USB cable and your Nokia X2 ready at hand with the phone’s USB debugging turned on. To turn USB debugging on: simply go to Settings > About Phone and tap Software Version 5 times. This will enable Developer Options in Settings, go back to the main Settings menu and simply turn USB debugging on.
- Download the Nokia X2 Tools Program from here
- Run the .exe file of the program and simply choose the option you want.
- Before you do anything, you would have to install device drivers first. This can also be done by using the program (option 1).
- We recommend rooting your phone (option 4) before you install the Play Store (Option 2) but if you don’t want to do that, you can simply install the Play Store without rooting as well.
- If at any time you want to remove root or Play Store, the program also gives you those options as well. So just connect your phone to the computer and select the appropriate option.
