Nokia X ROM Ported to the Cherry Mobile Flare S100

If you haven’t heard of it before, XDA Developers is the site to go to for all things Android (troubleshooting, flashing ROMs, etc.). That being said, I was pleasantly surprised when I read this news: a developer named Fallen_Knight over at XDA was able to flash (install) the Nokia X ROM on a Cherry Mobile Flare S100.


The Flare, by any means, is not a heavily specced device. But it does offer good performance for a relatively affordable price. So, seeing a newly minted Nokia X ROM on a device that’s almost 2 years old says a lot about the Flare. Anyway, the ROM still needs a bit of work. According to the site, everything works except for the FM radio and mobile hotspot. Just like a real Nokia X, you would have Fast Lane and some Nokia Apps. And just like like it, you won’t have access to Google service and the Play Store (although I think the developer included a link for it).

Be warned, however, that you would need to at least know a bit of technical knowledge to do this. You could risk permanently damaging or bricking your device. So I advise everyone who’s going to try this to proceed with a caution.
