Hi juneolmo25,

I'm probably going to tell you something you don't want to hear.

Rooting an Android device can be risky business. I rooted my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet and it was quite involved. I closely followed instructions and nearly bricked the device, and apparently that was a simpler device to root.

That being said the developers at XDA are very adept at what they do. Their instructions will likely be the simplest and most refined in achieving this task.

There are considerations to take if you're still considering rooting your Nokia. Have you backed it up? Have you checked the requirements such as which firmware the smart phone is running? Is the device fully charged before you proceed? Has the SD card been removed?.....

You have to approach this task with the possibility that what can go wrong will go wrong. It is possible, if it doesn't work, that the desired outcome might not be achieved, and that outcome could be through no fault of your own. Worst outcome is the device might be bricked. This is why forum members here, although very adept, are very hesitant to offer up this kind of advice.

I do however empathise with your plight, for an Android smart phone to not have access to the google play store really sucks. It severely limits the devices potential.

If you haven't been here already:

This is how I would do it if it were my device.

Remember the warnings I have offered. This is entirely at your discretion if you decide to proceed.
