This Kernel is not Overclocked or Anything but it is unsecured for those of you who would like to use adb remount to tweak the system.

Hope this helps further development on the Nokia X

head over to www.silvernexus.co.nr to Download.

Installation Guide:

1. Enable Usb Debugging
------ Go into settings
------ Open up Developer options
------ Tick USB Debugging

2. Install Nokia ADB Driver (assuming that you have not installed it yet)
------ Make sure device is disconnected.
------ Extract folder inside downloaded zip to a location of your choosing.
------ Inside that folder you'll find a folder named "driver". Open that up.
------ There you'll find a file named "nokia_winusb.inf". Right Click on that and select Install.
------ Wait a few seconds till it tells you wheather your installation was successful or not.
------ If successful head over to number 3.

3. Install the Kernel on your device
------ Inside the folder you extracted you'll find file named "install" or "install.bat" depending on wheather you have extensions shown or not.
------ Double click that and wait.
------ Enjoy... You now have an unsecure kernel installed... Happy tweaking....

Legally Nokia Has to release kernel sources according to the Apache 2.0 License. so we might get it soon.

I guess it's about time to do a CM port for the Nokia X, then. :)

In that case if u need a base u can use cm for the samsung i8552. someone ported cm to it but its not exctly stable.....

both i8552 and nokia x use the msm8625q chipset
