F.A.Q:

Q: Did I build this ROM?
A: No, I simply edited and tweaked it to make it more smooth and efficient. :)

Q: Do wi-fi and cellular service work?
A: Absolutely yes. Without it, there is no use of a ROM.

Q: Do we have to install G-Apps?
A: Yes, they are really essential for Google Services

Q: The Gallery won't detect/show my previous images. You said this was bug-proof. :mad:
A: Don't get angry. Your media scanner might have gotten stuck. Goto Play Store, search for Scan Media. Download the app and let it run. It should get fixed in a few seconds.

Q: FB Messenger and Facebook crashing initially.
A: This bug has been fixed. Download latest version.

Q: How to help you?
A: Simply use this ROM and report back. You can ask to make donations if you are pleased.

Q: When will I include OTA Service?
A: Already included.

Q: I downloaded a previous version. Wasn't pleased. Why should I download your version?
A: I request you give this a try. You will feel the difference.

Q: Google Calendar Sync isn't working. What should I do?

Does it support 2 simcards at the same time?

Yes, it's a distinctive Android OS with lots of brilliant features. Yes, I suppose it does. :)

I understand your concern. I have updated the thread to Official unedited version of the ROM. Download from the forum link. It should work without problems. :)

One minor request: If you want to help out a person with a different link than the main thread, please PM him. Don't fill this thread with other links of downloading ROMs. New users get disturbed with which link to use. I'm sure you'll understand my point of concern. Thank you. :)

Flash Gapps.
------------------
Can anyone reupload the file to some good international server?
lewatek's speed is low and it drops connection , its the 5th time I am trying to download a 7MB file.
And the problem is not on my side , I have 100mbps bandwidth, no packet drops, no ping issues, everything is fine.
Either lewatek server is ddosed, or it is too weak to hold on.
Update: downloaded this recovery instead

    Bro, my Nokia XL Camera is working now on Lewa latest version.:D

    Just flash attached package. The story is; first I flash package from Tech Virus, but didn't work for me, so I edit the Tech Virus package, then replace his libs by stock Nokia camera libs.
    I didn't find any problem related to camera so far.:):):)

    Another small problem is screenshot not working using vol down+power, got SystemUI crash. But, if use 3rd party screenshot app, working :D

    Okay, but do I have to download whole 200 Mb again? I was expecting some kinda patch of small size.

    Yes, you have to. Cause this is not a patch anymore. This is a full lewa rom ported to Nokia XL.
