The problem is that B2G is designed to be built using an ics device tree and the CM9 device tree for the sensation is basically deprecated and replaced with the jellybean one. So I had to build with the jellybean device tree and at first it threw a lot of errors. I fixed the errors but it still refused to boot. If anyone can find the device tree for cm9, I'll get back to building again and probably post a tutorial so you guys can help me.

Is this what you mean with the device tree? (seems I'm not allowed to post links yet) github dot com / CyanogenMod/android_device_htc_pyramid
There is a ICS branch, although it hasn't been updated for a year.

I am also trying to get firefox os running, have a spare pyramid here which is not in daily use anymore, so I can flash on it all I want.
Maybe we should share experiences? Set up some kind of wiki/blog or whatever? Make a GitHub group with required repositories? (I can provide hosting if needed)

Edit: I have the 'normal' sensation. No 4g. No beats.

ps: This is my first time working on android/firefox os source code, only installed pre-built zips before, but, I am a programmer and fairly familiar in Linux, so I think I'll manage after a while.

Thumbs up I wanna help.

Pick Me, Pick Me, I wanna help in testing and reporting.

I do have the Sensation, not XE, not 4G.

rather than leaving it to collect dust, i might as well use it to contribute to this development, but only in testing and reporting bugs/symptoms etc.

i'm still learning some programming, so i'm no pro.

So, what's new with this matter?

I've actually been with Christian Heilmann at Codebits and we were looking for solutions on getting the HTC Sensation to work with FfOS, and ended up in this thread..

Any news on his matter? Any progress? I'm looking for a compatible kernel, which I believe it's the hardest part of the process..
