I have the vivo x21 (and oppo r15 pro) too. The Nova problem is unique to the nex. I was able to get Nova on the vivo x21 and oppo r15 pro fine. But in nex you MUST HAVE A vivo account. Trust me on this. Ive been slapping Nova on vivo phones since the xplay 6. This is a new problem for the nex and there is no workaround.
It's worth noting I'm using the trash china version of the nex. Maybe if there is an international rom it will be better.

No there isn't. Just because you can get nova on another phone by another brand doesn't mean it will work on the Nex.
Like I said, I have the Vivo X21 and Oppo r15 pro and I could get nova on those phones fine. But I can't get nova on the Nex. You need a Vivo account. I managed to borrow my friends China number to start an account so now I am able to run nova on the Nex. Otherwise, nah.
Just to clarify, a public Vivo account will work too?Jesus, yes I've tried it.
This is the last time I'm answering this:
YOU CANNOT USE NOVA OR ANY THIRD PARTY LAUNCHER UNLESS YOU HAVE A VIVO ACCOUNT with the Nex. This is a NEW development, as the Vivo X21 can handle third party launcher without a Vivo account fine.
I have no idea how, despite me saying "I have the Vivo Nex, you cannot install third party launcher", people who DON'T HAVE THE PHONE YET still want to argue with me and say "nah i think you can."
Some good news about global ROM. It seems that nex was sold in Taiwan, a special province of China, where they should provide fully google support and remove all China apps. I think we should wait for the TW version ROM.
Also, I try to ask the official customer support about the TW firmware, they said they will not allow us to install it on the China version nex. But I think as the firmware release, there is a chance that we can do that.
It is definitely a scam, there's no way of rooting *any* phone, it's true that most phones become rootable sooner or later, but that depends on the manufacturer and those who modify the device. The thing is that technically any android phone can be rooted, but that can only be done if one first has access to a bootloader which they can send commands to, such as flashing a recovery. Apps or sites that say they can root any phone is a very deceptive way of tricking inexperienced users, based on somewhat facts.Thats great news actually. I have successfully rooted and installed a custom ROM on my galaxy S5. But I am still quite new to the topic and therefore I want to ask: if some videos or websites claim that they have a way to root *any* android device: can that be true from a technical standpoint or is such a thing always scam?
