Rooting the Nokia X and the Nokia XL smartphones is done from a one-click rooting application called Framaroot. The Fram,root rooting application was a popular way to root devices back when Android 4.4. Kitkat was around.

Although the rooting app itself works relatively, simply it became confusing just what version of Android that Framaroot would work on because when the news broke about the exploit that was found by the Framaroot developer, Android quickly pulled the plug on it and patched it up. That means the Framaroot app does not root devices forever but rather before a particular date of a software update that rolled out to devices over the air.
