Welcome to the Unofficial Firefox OS, Boot to Gecko(B2G), Nightlies for the Nexus S
The build is compiled from the latest B2G repos using the build scripts on mac.


This build is Unofficial work, not related to B2G nightlies. Please do not report bugs to B2G team for anything that is provided as part of this thread.

Use this at your own risk. I will not be accountable if this causes you phone to fail, or you lose your data. The backup of your data is your responsibility.
B2G rom image erases /data and /cache partitions, so, you should backup /system and /data with CWM backup menu. After you flash B2G, you cannot recovery your android user data if you don't backup.

You can not burn Firefox OS ROM by Clockwork Mod Recovery, burn it by fastboot command yet. If anyone help me to make, help contact me.

Thank you.

  • Unlocked Nexus S
  • fastboot command for *nix or mac
  • [Option] CWM Recovery for backup/restore Android OS

Download ROM

Install Firefox OS
  1. Turn off the device
  2. Press VOL UP and POWER to launch fast boot mode
  3. Run on *nix command line

  • Call and receive telephone
  • Connect WiFi and 3G Network
  • Run the B2G applications

Not work:
  • Launch camera
  • Auto correct date/time
  • i18n localization
  • And, many many functions

Is it really so hard to follow the instructions? fastboot really isn't that hard to cope with

If you guys really want to try out Boot 2 Gecko, go to Nexus S General section and search for B2G thread, where a user named Moriarty compiled flash able B2G rom.
