- If you have Nokia XL, Choose Add more zips once again and Choose the Nokia XL Patch zip.
- Swipe to Confirm. The ROM, G-Apps and any additional zips will be installed.
- Choose Reboot System. ( If it gets stuck, don't panic. It's a bug in the recovery. Simply remove the battery, insert it again and power up the device)
