A lot of Android purists lost hope for Nokia’s first Android foray, the Nokia X, when they heard that it would instead run a forked version of Android that used Nokia’s own app store instead of the Google Play Store. That’s totally understandable, but being Android underneath, it was only a matter of time before we heard the words “Nokia X rooted” from the guys over at XDA. Not only is it rooted, it also has the Google Play Store, Google apps and Google Now Launcher installed onto it. Check out a video of Google Now Launcher running on the Nokia X:
