Download Nokia X100 (TA-1399) firmware for unbrick, reset & repair

Nokia X100 (codenamed deadmau5) is a well-received smartphone in the US market. It was launched in 2021 on the Snapdragon 480 5G CPU. It is a unique model developed for the US’s English and Spanish-speaking populations. There is only a single model number of the Nokia X100, i.e., TA-1399.

Like any other smartphone, the Nokia X100 (sm4350) can also develop software issues that impact the device’s functionality. Some users also use the DSU Loader option in the developer option, resulting in a soft brick and phone being stuck in fastboot mode. However, given the limited availability of the model, it is hard to find support software, firmware, and guides for the Nokia X100.

Hence, we provide the direct download link to the latest firmware files for the Nokia X100. The firmware is based on Android 11 only because the Nokia X100 will not receive an upgrade to new Android versions. You can use the firmware as a base to develop/port newer versions of Android to the device if you are familiar with the custom ROM development process. Other than that, you can use it to fix various issues, such as:

  • Stuck in fastboot mode
  • Bootloop from the Powered by Android logo
  • Reset the phone locked by a PIN or pattern
  • Remove Google account FRP lock
  • Use boot image for rooting purposes
  • Upgrade the device to the latest version (where OTA updates do not work)
  • Remove T-Mobile or other carrier SIM lock (if you know how to utilize the function in combination with root access)

Nokia X100 was launched on Android 11. Being a carrier-customized device, the phone will not get any major Android upgrades. However, hmd has continuously updated the phone to provide security patches and other general bug fixes. The following versions of the Nokia X100 stock ROM are available.
