So if MTP doesn't work does that mean there is absolutely no USB storage, or is it just MSD?

With multirom I can access/create files but not delete them. I haven't tested it while it's installed as primary ROM.

Hi, really liked to give FF a try since first rumors about it, so thanks for this.

Just installed as secondary with MultiROM onwich I have Carbon as primary and Ubuntu yet.
Installation seems gone up right and says "successful", it boot up as expected but there's not keyboard to set the pin code and wifi key.

Is it known or just me?


Edit: Keyboard works if "English (US)" is setted up as primary language.

I just tested, I get this issue too when selecting italian as the language for first time boot. I will see if this is an issue in my build or if I need to file a bug. For now you can use English in the first time menu then switch to your language.

Could not boot FFOS
Hi,
first thanks for the your effort building this image!
I tried it on my Nexus 4 device with the following configuration:
- MultiROM v28
- fresh install of current OmniROM as primary rom
- your FFOS image by 10/02/14 as additional rom

Trying to boot the FFOS image results in infinite loop alternating shownig the FFOS logo in front of blue background and a black screen.

I tried to wipe data and cache and dalvik cache with the result that MultiROM was removed, too. So I had to replace the kernel of OmniROM to one with kexec patch to install MultiROM again. The result for FFOS as secondary ROM was still the same.

Any suggestions?

Many regards,
odysseus
