How to Root Nokia X, Nokia X+ & Nokia XL after v1.1.2.2 update in Easy & Safe Way

Earlier I have  posted the tutorial to root Nokia X but for some people that method is not working  because Nokia pushed v11.1.1 and another v1.1.2.2 for Nokia X,X+ AND XL . 
However now this  tutorial works for Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL running on v1.1.2.2 and also v11.1.1.
Before rooting the Nokia X, X+ and Nokia XL you need to do following things:
  • Download Nokia X Toolkit from here.
  • Enable USB Debugging mode
    • Launch device settings.
    • Tap Developer options in the System section.
    • Switch on developer options and tap OK in the query dialog shown.
    • Enable USB debugging in the Debugging section and tap OK in the query dialog shown.
  • Update(or install) Nokia X USB drivers, Download it from here.
    • Goto desktop on PC
    • Right click on computer and click manage
    • Select Device manager
    • In the list, Nokia X will be listed with a Question mark icon.
    • Right click and select update driver, then select Browse my computer for driver option.
    • Now select the path of above extracted folder, in the folder select driver file.
    • Now drivers are updated.

Steps for Rooting Nokia X and Nokia XL

  1. After installing the above software, open Nokia X toolkit, it will look like this:

  2. Enter 9 (If you see 21 instead of 9 then enter 21) and press ENTER, wait for sometime.
  3. If you only want to install play store without root select 12 or 23 and press enter.
  4. Now phone will be booted in CWM mode. 
  5. Select Mounts And Storage, then select Mount System.
  6. Now select Flash Zip from SD Card.
  7. There will be SuperUser zip file, flash it.
  8. After flashing, select Reboot.
  9. After reboot it will prompt for fixing CWM, Select No.

So in this way you can root your Nokia X or Nokia XL running on V1.1.2.2 , This method also works for software v 11.1.1. So this method works for every Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL irrespective of software Version.
