I´m one of the guys in mwc that got a new Nokia X device.

I just return home and i couldn´t imagine how easy its going to be restore Gapps.

Cause i didnt read anything. Going to write some guide or maybe i´ll do a little app to do the process in an automatic way.

A few pics!

Am i the first one!?

PS. Google Now Launcher its working too!



GUIDE

This is a rudimental way to do it. This happen because we dont have recovery yet. Bootloader seems locked in some ways, so instead
flashing a single zip, we need this way to get it working.

1
You should need a rooted device. Use Gandalf Exploit included in Framaroot app.
(Download it from http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1391850491)

PS. If you are running v11.1.1 update, Framework doesnt work, so use it this new guide to root it.

2
We need a Root explorer app, use whatever you want. (For example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...explorer&hl=es)

3rd:
Extract and copy all apks from "NokiaX_Gapps_KashaMalaga_28.02.2014.zip" to /system/app and change permisions for this files.


4:
Reboot

5:
Extract and install as normal user every single needed apk include in "NokiaX_SomeGoogleApps.zip". (If wanna use Google Now Launcher, open it after install it)

6:
Try to launch Play Store, its gonna ask u for a Google Account et voilà

Congrats!

Nice to see that it was easy! If only Nokia were to release this line in America... I'd love to have an AOSP Nokia device as a spare
