If you don't know about Firefox OS you can read about here or here.

You can find an older version here.

Since it was almost one year old I decided to build this from source, it's the latest stable version (1.3).

I had to disable gralloc because I was getting black screen after boot, so webgl is not working and the gui is sluggish.
Everything else seem to work, but is not intended as daily usable.

DATA
SYSTEM

Flashable via CWM, to install
  1. Format system
  2. Flash data
  3. Flash system
  4. Reboot

Yes, there's still a lot of work to do, I just compiled B2G from source just for testing applications.

It isn't my job but if you tell me what is not working I can try to fix it.

the main bug is the sim card that isn't recognised and so data doesn't work,than there's the camera. For the other bugs i don't know,i use it for a very few minutes.

They use different kernel so you need an hybrid kernel wich can boot android and fOS

If using the canorical installer it uses your current kernel. But overwrites the recovery boot img. So you cant flash other Android roms. Tot remove it simply flash a customrecovery through adb

I have compile on May 09/2014 against v1.4 branch version 2.0.0.0-prerelease. Camera and SIM bugs persist. But can do outgoing call, received incoming call, sending/received sms. ....
