Info 2 [Dev] boot2gecko for the verizon galaxy nexus

First off, let me tell you that this is super sketchy right now. If you were looking for something stable, then leave. This is the exact opposite.

I am working to port mozilla's boot2gecko to the galaxy nexus, so before you ask, here's what works & what dosent:
Works:
Touchscreen
ADB
Wi-Fi
Firefox
Lockscreen
homescreen
...well yeah you get the point, but more importantly, what dosen't/partially works:
Cell service (1x, 3g, and 4g)
screenshot
camera only sometimes works
no softkeys
All resources are designed for hdpi, so everything's a bit small

Downloads:
Build 1 (9/3/12) http://goo.im/devs/jellybellys/toro/...n-recovery.zip
Build 1 MD5: d8e70323e56b4568f6c2d504d0cceab0
Build 2 (9/3/12) http://goo.im/devs/jellybellys/toro/...n-recovery.zip
Build 2 MD5: 9a2db2d4d0673b25b8dd01aab8d39e04

To do list:
Implement some sorta softkey thing
Fix cell service
Resize resources to about a 300 dpi
Fix screenshot

Low priority to do list:
Implement android apps and google play store

If you know something about developing android, or html5, pm/reply so you can help contribute.

Oh yeah, don't flash in recovery. Open up the zip and flash the img files in there. Back up your internal memory first because it'll be wiped.

I was just going to start this as I have lots free time at the moment. And was just going to start setting up my "environment" here in the next week. I'll be more then happy to help. I was thinking something in the way of html5 soft keys. At least a back button. I'm more then happy to hop on this band wagon. I need something to do with my time. And I have always wanted to build something custom for my phone.

It's pretty unusable. I noticed the easiest way to get to the homescreen for now is to turn the screen off, then swipe to the left for the camera and it usually hotboots.

Rebooting is about the only way to back out of an app.

I think I'll hold off for a little while then, but it's looking good

Not sure since I've never used this but if you aren't on data or wifi doesn't that basically make the phone useless since everything is a webapp? Or is that wrong?

Made a new build. All that's different is I attempted to implement a home button in the notification drawer, but failed. It doesn't do anything.

no it still works without wifi or data, it stores them on your phone.
