Installing Windows Phone UI on Nokia X2

Like the original Nokia X phone, the Nokia X2 came pre loaded with Android and not windows phone. At Nokia Views, we are fan of the amazingly unique Windows Phone UI so we thought why not show how to install the WP UI on the Nokia X2 android phone. There is a ROM on XDA for that that gives you WP style UI, fonts, music player, contacts app, dialer and messaging app. This is how it looks like.
