The new update make this phone brilliantly fast. for those who own it get it now!!!
if your phone gets stuck at updating (exclamation mark) do the following
you have to install in recovery mode. I did that on my XL.
first note down product code in "about phone" .
download the update and once downloaded it will ask "agree and install" hit back button.
use the file manger to Go to SD card 0. select Android folder then select "com . nokia . update" folder.
copy folder contents to SD Card2. reboot into recovery (vol up button at Nokia logo for 20 secs) and select update from external card.
volume up/down moves selection up and down respectively and power button acts as select.
select the update folder you copied to SD card 2.
2 files will be there. install the one relevant to your product code
PS: i'm not responsible if anything goes wrong. just providing info I read at discussion website of nokia
Don't press any buttons when downloading updates or it might cancel the download
Use framaroot.apk from net to root your nokia xl. Just install , open and click on gandalf root to root your phone. I rooted mine. If you still have any problem then download Nokia X Manager by Sangley from Xda developers. It is for windows. Just connect your phone thru usb and open nokia x manager and click on Root option.. Wait for ur phone to complete the process. Nokia x manager is about 40mb...

In my Molia XL Mobile Wjattsapp not install and system give message this device could not capable for this application
please solve this error
If u r not able to install updates, follow this. I m successful by this method. First of all download the updates but when it asks for restart and install don't click on it as u must have already tried and were unsuccessful. Rather go to astro file manager-sdcard0-android-com.nokia-files-updates. There will be the updates in zip format which u just downloaded. Copy this update file to external sd card and remember its location. Now switch off ur mobile. Wait for 10 seconds. Then simultaneously press power and volume up key together, keep pressing both keys simultaneously for abt 10 seconds. Some boot options will appear on screen. U can use volume up and down key for moving and power key for selection. Select apply from external card and go where u copied ur updates. There u will find two zip files, select second one and press power key. Updates will start installing. Wait for 10 minutes till they r fully installed. Now its done. Congrats

1. Operating system is not Android. it is nokia software.
2. won't install any apps from google play store. not even from ovi.nokia store.
3. You can install apps from Third party store. But message appears if you install apps from third party store then nokia company is not responsible for data theft of mobile damage other than nokia.com. Even after installing it it never works. I installed compass but it shown the message that magnetic field not available.
4. Bluetooth works only for nokia handsets Nokia care center themselves told to me.
5. Poor display
6. To connect to PC you need to install nokia suite. Even then it may or may not connect to PC.
7. Can't install whatsapp and so many other apps.
8. Only thing is camera is good. Rest everything is bad.
9. Overall even cheapest local brand smartphones are far better than nokia Smartphones.
can anybody plz explain, how to transfer msgs & contacts details from nokia 305 to nokia xl via bluetooth to me here, plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!
