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!? :p

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/attachment.php?attachmentid=2566341&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/details?id=com.speedsoftware.rootexplorer&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

You're awesome dude. I can't wait for CM11 for this device though, then it will be a fast Nokia Android smartphone, everyone's dream!

To enable WinUSB mode you have to enter:

*#*#2273#*#*

BTW: There is no need to mask your product code. It's the same for each phone of a variant, e.g. Country Variant Spain.

I didn't know everyone's dream was a fking low-specs Nokia Phone. ;)

It's an A5, it won't be fast at all. CM4 would work better on it than CM11 xD
