X2 still locked out? Here’s how to fix it – NOV SECURITY UPDATE FIX!

Spread the love

It’s has been around a week since BLU pushed its November security update (the first and most likely last update) for the Life One X2 that locked many of their faithful users out of their devices. It seems like the company that has been in hot water many times this year between accusations of pre-installed malware and bricking worked quietly all week on creating a fix to the problem that they caused and have finally started issuing a “fix” for the locked out x2’s. This morning on XDA, I have ran across a user (Bouboulina) who claims to have gotten their phone back without having to factory reset their device with the help of BLU. Below is the full post for the instructions and download links to the flashable fix package.
