Default [WIP] Rooting Procedure for X2

Hello there users. I'm currently a dev for Nokia X but I would love to help you guys out.
So, I'll be giving out ways on how you can try to get Root on your device. This is a discussion thread.
As I don't have the device myself, I'm counting on people who have purchased it.

So lets start. In order to get development for your device, you need to get a system dump of your whole/entire device.

But for that, you need Root. Heres an app that I think might root the device. http://www.cydiaimpactor.com/

Goto the link, download it and test it out. Give feedback.

And nothing happens. Maybe I`ve done somthing wrong...
So, in a dev options i`ve point usb debuging.
On my pc i got two new devices - Nokia composite adb interface and nokia 2 with yellow mark.

Then run cidia from admin name - usb - driver scan - no device found.
I tried with rooted nokia xl - just to see what happens - error - no such device.

Okay, so that didnt work.
Now, goto this link and download the adb and fastboot drivers for Nokia X and install them.

After that, go HERE and flash CWM Recovery for Nokia X using the instructions given in the thread.
DONT DO THE ABOVE METHOD! As there is no backup, if something goes wrong, you'll lose the device. For now, wait and let me find more exploits. Till then, do install the adb and fastboot divers.
After that, goto ADB folder and Open command prompt from there (Shift + Right mouse button). Then type this:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot -i 0x0421 devices
And see if the device gets recognized.
Then type:
Code:
fastboot -i 0x0421 reboot

On fastboot - nothing. I coudn`t install adb from this tread
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2744191
Installer told me-unsupported language and close)
I used cmd.exe ,and path to android tools - on fastboot i got nothing. No list of devices. But.
On reboot or others command - answer is - Waiting for device
Super one click - runs adb server around 3 times, then program freez on - Waiting for device =)
If i click on button driver chek - no issues found.
Maybe i`ve got some trouble with drivers ?
I got them from here
http://developer.nokia.com/resources...ice-setup.html
But i haven`t adb_usb.ini where it should be...

adb_usb.ini is important as it is the key that recognizes the adb device to the computer.
Do all the above steps in the guide fully including the adb_usb.ini step.
