Floodgates Open for Development on the Nokia X with Unofficial TWRP and CWM Ports

It seems many folks simply do not know what to do with the Nokia X. Although it’s unbelievably inexpensive, one may find it hard to rationalize choosing this highly modified device over the also wallet-friendly and highly regarded Moto G, particularly for aftermarket development. This however, doesn’t change the fact that the Nokia X has already been rooted and loaded with Google Apps, testament to the determination of XDA members.

With this said, the Nokia X has recently received unofficial ports of TeamWin’s TWRP and Koush’s CWM courtesy of XDA Senior Member dhacker29. The TWRP recovery is the latest version, and is fully operational with no bugs except for a graphical glitch when you first enter the recovery. The CWM recovery, however, is still in its beta phase. It has various bugs yet to be ironed out, such as a minute-long loop that sometimes occurs upon boot. Both ports of TWRP and CWM are built from CyanogenMod 10 and Nokia X kernel sources, and their sources can be found at dhacker29’s github if you’re interested in tinkering with them.

With both TWRP and CWM recoveries running on the Nokia X, we hope to see more development for the device in future. Dhacker29 certainly has an idea already, stating that once CWM is fully working on the Nokia X, he may start working on getting CyanogenMod working on the device.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
