GUIDE] Flashing Stock ROMs, Language packages + Nokia X(+,L) ROM collection

Refurbish - It will remove all user content from the memory (not SD) and restore all settings to factory ones. It'w works only on connected and not dead phones. NCS will read current software version and let you only updgrade to latest one for your specific variant code, PC.

Recovery - This options will recover dead phone or will flash different software variant designeted for other markets. Phone if is live must be powered down and not connected to NCS until massage pop up during flashing while after when you press the Start

Language package change - It let you change to other languge same way as Refurbish, NCS must establish connection first before do it.

Note to Refurbish and LPC: For device detection, user needs to manually enter code: *#*#2273#*#* on device dial-pad and enable WinUSB mode by selecting it on device’s screen. Same action is always needed after finalized flashing
To get start, first download latest NCS with support Nokia X series.

Download all ROM files and copy them into c:\ProgramData\Nokia\Packages\Products\rm-xxx\
Where xxx is:
  • Nokia X - RM-980, RM-981
  • Nokia X+ - RM-1053
  • Nokia XL - RM-1030. RM-1042

Launch Nokia Care Suite from yur desktop and click on Product Support Tool for Store 5.0

If you doing Recovery which is most of cases, unmark Automatic product selection and set No Connection. Do not connect the phone!
Click File-> Open product-> put model name if NCS let you or write down RM version, for example 980

Then Programming-> recovery, downloaded packages will show up in the window

Click on an firmware and press Start, wait for massage windows and follow it.

Wink [ROM][Nokia X] Vanilla AOSP/Code Aurora [4.1.2]

[ROM][Nokia X] Vanilla AOSP/Code Aurora [4.1.2]

Koush SuperUser:

To activate microphone for incall use you MUST:
1. Plug in a headset
2. Open the FM app
3. Go to settings in FM app and select to use speakers
4. Close FM and disconnect headset
5. Profit
You must repeat this after each reboot.

Known Working: Phone Calls, Bluetooth, Camera, CamCorder, FM, GPS, MultiSim, Media playback, MTP, sensors (proximity, rotation, brightness, etc), incall audio (mic)


TWRP for Nokia X (normandy)

This is a fully working version of the latest TWRP.

All sources can be found at

I built this in CyanogenMod cm-10.0 sources by repo init from the jellybean branch and adding to my local manifest and removing bootable/recovery.

The following patch is required to bootable/recovery twrp_normandy.patch
Also in device/nokia/normandy/
-BOARD_CUSTOM_GRAPHICS := ../../../device/nokia/normandy/recovery/graphics.c
+#BOARD_CUSTOM_GRAPHICS := ../../../device/nokia/normandy/recovery/graphics.c
To build in the CyanogenMod cm-11.0 branch you just need this one patch to bootable/recovery:
diff --git a/minuitwrp/ b/minuitwrp/
index 4ee59d0..8e47a2b 100644
--- a/minuitwrp/
+++ b/minuitwrp/
@@ -10,6 +10,9 @@ else
LOCAL_SRC_FILES += graphics.c

ifeq ($(TW_TARGET_USES_QCOM_BSP), true)
The rest of the post is shamlessly kanged from Dees Troy's official TWRP posts
Team Win Recovery Project 2.x, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

Enabled selinux support

Fixed graphics glitch and reboot issues

-Faster graphics rendering by disabling alpha blending on fully opaque objects thanks to Tassadar
-Allow sideloading from /tmp on encrypted devices
-Check for a crypto footer before asking for a password to prevent user confusion
-Additional checks for validity to auto generated backup names
-Text wrap in the console output
-Proper caps lock support in the keyboard
-Mouse support via USB OTG for devices with a broken digitizer
-Improve scanning of storage locations for OpenRecoveryScript
-Haptic feedback for buttons, keyboard, and vibration at the end of longer running actions thanks to Samer Diab
-Fixed ext4 wiping when no selinux contexts are defined for that partition (e.g. sd-ext)
-Update SuperSU to 1.93 and improve installation process
-Added selinux contexts restoration to fix permissions
-Load RTC offset on Qualcomm devices to fix the date/time in recovery
-USB Mass Storage fixes Add SELinux support checking
-Add Disk Usage class to better handle excluded folders (e.g. Google Music cache)
-Add 4.4 decrypt support
-Add some toolbox utilities to TWRP (namely to support SELinux functions not supported in busybox)
-Various SELinux fixes and bug fixes

Note: 2.7 marks the first time that we are dropping support for older devices. We are doing this because of the SELinux support needed to install 4.4 Kit Kat ROMs. The non-TWRP parts of the recovery image have to be built in at least a 4.1 tree and the kernel that is included in the recovery image has to support writing SELinux contexts. We don't own most of the devices that we support so we depend on outside testers and developers to help us update devices. In many cases we can't find someone readily. Come to #twrp on Freenode if you want to help bring your device up to date. You can tell right away if your device will support 4.4 ROMs in 2.7. Boot TWRP and press the console button (the square-ish button either in the bottom middle or upper right) to view the console output. If it doesn't say "Full SELinux support" in the console, then your device still needs some work. Help us help you


ClockWorkMod Recovery v6.0.4.8 for Nokia

Based on CM-11 sources with full selinux support.

To install you must have fastboot set up on your pc and then:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot -i 0x0421 flash recovery cwm-6028-normandy.img
You may need to rename /system/etc/ to /system/etc/ for it not to be over written on reboot.

Change Log:
04-10-2014-2: Fixed all sensors, Updated FM app to look like Jellybean
04-12-2014: Kind of fixed incall audio (See note above)
