The hacker hacked smartphone Nokia X




Last week during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Finnish Nokia unveiled Android-smartphones series X. However, full-fledged “androidfonami” could not call them – the company changed the operating system beyond recognition and banned access applications from Google Play, instead of giving your application store. This angered the real fans and they hacked Android smartphone.

User XDA-Developers forum under the nickname Kashamalaga informed the public that cracked smartphone Nokia X, get him on the MWC-2014 to run on it Google Now Launcher application and get access to Google Play.

As you know, Nokia smartphones line X use Android as an operating system, but most of its code rewritten Nokia programmers for their own needs. A heavily modified version of Android with a large resemblance to Windows Phone is designed to promote their own applications and services Nokia and Microsoft. As a result, these smart phones only work with applications from Nokia Store, ignoring native “Googley” program like Gmail, Google Maps and Google Hangouts, which mark almost every owner of Android-powered devices.

Judging by the posts on the forum code Nokia was not so difficult to crack and: user forum XDA-Developers did it in five steps. But do not think that this task can handle each, some knowledge is still required.

If before the purchase X-constrained background you just lack of “Googley” services and applications, today you can easily revise their opinion. Obviously, cracking phone void the warranty and can lead to undesirable consequences, but it is incomparable with pleasure that gets boom during this experiment.

The development team of Nokia responded to hack their “androidfonov” one word:


Advanced users will break everything. Even “smart” toilets .
The Japanese have created a computer back in the ear
