i assume you are talking about this one? Xperia-v2-byTaleNT?
if that is the case - this is a GB ROM, not ICS btw.
however, i would be interested to know how you got it to work.
if you could share from what FFOS Version you came, what CWM did you use etc.?

so far i have tried without success:
Gingerbread:
Xperia-v2-byTaleNT
ztestock_2.3.6_2013052314014269
ICS:
Lewa_V8403_fix 2


and another inofficial FFOS 2.0 build which doesnt work:
b2g-1.5-20140409-roamer2

i am giving up.

if anyone gets a halfway decent Android ROM working, please do tell. Don't care if it is GB, even GB is about 300% more useful than FFOS

Open C is most likely the only FF phone I will buy, I like the ideal I can build my own OS, and choose from several different OSes to use. Also I can simply reboot into android when I need to run a navigation app, or want to run an android app.

I have never used Open so don't know about it's problems, Open C is a nice phone, FF runs very well on it as does android, Specs aren't the best this isn't a power house phone, but a very usable phone.
I understand your stance vampirefo (and btw - nice to see you here )
unfortunately the same is going to happen with the Open C that happened to the Open,
ZTE is not going to provide any updates and Mozilla is going to change some stuff which will require a new HW layer and it's game over.

the only halfway "safe" phone for getting updates now is the Flame, but that is built by Alcatel (well, actually by TCL which owns Alcatel)
but 170 USD (ok, ww shipping included, big deal...) is about 2x what its actually worth.

i really wanted to give this a chance, but in my opinion Mozilla screwed this up big time.
let's see what happens in the next 2-3 years, maybe they are going to be a valid alternative.
until then i suppose even Jolla is a better choice, since that can also run Android apps native. (but the phone is also way overpriced)
