Hi Guys

I am letting you all no that i am start to working on a Firefox OS port that will make are wee phone stand out from the armv6 crowd by porting a newly release source code for an android distro thats not from Google AOSP, CM, MIUI or AOKP this will give us a great looking GUI and hopefully leave ICS and JB in the dark just like Qualcomm left us in the dark by not releasing libs for ICS and JB video playback etc. If you can guess what distro it is ill will add you to be a beta tester before public release. I will be downloading its source code after college and see how far i get in terms of booting etc the one good thing is this os will not need root as its completely open and not locked down like stock android.


I no it will be hard moving to a new OS because all of your android apps and games might not work but i will not no fully until its booting but if all works well we will just forget about android completely and move to the other OS
