Can't sign in to Google Account

Many thanks for able to root Nokia X. Just got it and followed the instructions. However, when it asked me to sign in, and I add account via the apps like Maps/Google Play Music, it just not allow me click on "ADD ACCOUNT". I uninstalled the Googleapps apks and reinstall.

When initial sign in, asked for me ADD ACCOUNT, but I could not find "Google". Not able to use Gmail apps. Much appreciate advise/assistance from experts here! Gracias!

how to use Nokia X Manager

Use Nokia X Manager from Android Development Section. This will root it. :)

I downloaded Nokia X manager, connected the phone then hit "root", I'm not a hardcore dev. so the attached message makes absolutely no sense to me.

Is there a step-by-step guide somewhere? I have absolutely no idea how to "mount system and flash from internal storage "

Haha, I understand you must be a Newbie. :D

Well, don't worry. I'll make a guide for you.
1. Connect your phone to pc and use Nokia Manager to install G-Apps.
2. Once you get the message you have seen in the screenshot, just click okay,
3. Now rest of the process will be done by the phone. Now, if you'll look at your phone screen, it will be booted into something called Team Win Recovery Project.
4. Once you're there, You need to Choose Mount and then System.
5. When youre done, the back button in the bottom will take you back.
6. Now choose Flash and you'll see a zip file in your sd card named Super or SU something. Choose that. And It will flash.
7. You have completed the whole process. Go back and choose Reboot and then System. :)
8. Dont panic if you get stuck on choosing to reboot into system. Its a bug in the recovery. Simply, pull out the battery, put it in again and power on the device. You will boot into system and G-Apps will be there.

If you still get any problem, Reply and ask. Or PM me even. I'll be here. :)
