Firefox OS porting, GUI theming
Dear XDA community,
maybe some of you have already seen my ports of Firefox OS on some Xperia devices. I hope you liked them.
About this project:
The primary goal of this project is porting Firefox OS to all of the phones those have a port of CyanogenMod 9. You may wonder why I'm aiming these devices, so here is the answer: As Firefox OS was initially based on ICS, it is easy to port on ICS devices, and I think CM is the best and most stable ROM we have, to use as a base.
The secondary goal of my project is to create new themes for Firefox OS, those look like the stock ROMs of various devices. The one I am working on is FoXperia, an Xperia-like HTML5 UI. Altough I am a web-developer, I will need help with this, as the Gaia code is simply too much for one person to rewrite completely.
Anybody who can test the ROMs or fix the bugs, maybe is able to help me with the theming is welcome to join. More people can achieve great things in way less time.
Join the developer group here: FoXperia developers
Other devices will be added later.
It's not easy to update the list all the time, so here is my Dev-Host folder link:

Info for those who want to help in building:
To set up build environment, use the tutorial from Mozilla's site Firefox OS build prerequisites
Then you will need to download the sources. It will be a bit different than Mozilla's one.
First, create a directory where you will work. Open a terminal.
git clone https://github.com/feherneoh/B2G
Replace device_name with the codename of your phone.
Supported codenames (check by running ./config.sh):
To build it:
You will find zip in /path/to/your/directory/B2G/release/
>>Note: X10 build will give you an error, find zip in /path/to/your/directory/B2G/out/target/product/es209ra/
