How to Enable Mobile Network (RIL) on Nokia X2 CM12.1

CyanogenMod 12.1 is a customized version of Android version 5.1 i.e it’s the customized version of Android Lollipop. Developer vm03 and zombah has made a custom rom for Nokia X2 which is based on CyanogenMod 12.1. The Rom has two bugs, i.e. RIL (Mobile Network) & Back Camera doesn’t work.
But now there’s a temporary fix for RIL. You can start RIL just by using some commands in terminal window.

Steps to:Β Enable RIL on Nokia X2 CM12.1 Build 2

This is only temporary fix, so if you reboot your phone then you have to repeat all this steps.
Keep Your WIFI turned off during this porcess. If it is enabled then the RIL will not be enabled. By default the ctrl key is set as “Volume Down Button” So if you want to press crtl key press the “Volume Down Button”. Use Only one sim card and place that Sim card in Slot 2
  1. Open Terminal Emulator on your CM12.1 build.
  2. Now type
    logcat -b radio
  3. Now remove your sim card from phone and type:
    stop ril-daemon
    logcat -b radio
  4. You will see the following message.
    E/RILJ ( 1341): Couldn't find 'ril' socket after 8 times, continuing to retry silently
  5. Now press
  6. Now insert the Sim card back into your phone and type:
    start ril-daemon
  7. That’s it. Now it will ask you to select operator for your SIM card. Select it and your RIL i.e. mobile network will be turned on.
  8. If still the network is not enabled then type
    stop ril-daemon
    start ril-daemon
  9. This will work… πŸ™‚

    Two questions . . . 1st is in the part that we have to remove the sim, and inserting it again, is it necessary that we turn off the phone? or just remove the sim while it is turned on? 2nd question will both sim slots work after the process, or only one will work? -Thanks
