- It "worked", but don't set your expectations high (read the rest of the bullet points)
- No hardware accleration (we knew this already)
- I couldn't get a data signal (no 2G/3G), though it did see my AT&T SIM
- Preferences/Settings are slim so I couldn't mess with APN settings to try to get data to work
- Wifi will now connect (fixed in Build 2)
- Couldn't test much at all due to no data connections working
- Power button functionality was erratic. This seems to be fixed in Build 2.
- Keyboard was actually very smooth
- The OS became smoother after a few reboots, scrolling through windows felt Android 1.6ish, instead of being Windows Mobile 6ish
- It shows a LOT of promise
- Boots in about 5 seconds, shuts down in 1 second
Pictures of build 3 running on my Nexus S can be found here: http://uberamd.com/post/22200022691/...-boot-to-gecko
Build 3: - Code base from 4-27-2012 - Some tweaks made to get wifi working better (got some pages to load around 4-23-2012) - Wifi now connects AND loads pages. This means that you can finally utilize the web browser and bundled apps. Build 2: - I now made it so the ROM can be flashed via CWM just like any Android ROM - Code base from 4-12-2012 - Now connects to wireless (pages still won't load, looking into it) Build 1: - Initial release - Restore via CWM "Backup/Restore"
- Ensure you have ClockworkMod on your Nexus S with a unlocked bootloader
- Boot into Android
- Copy b2g_nexuss_uberamd_signed.zip to your devices SD card
- Boot into recovery
- (optional) create a backup of your current setup
- Flash the b2g ROM
- Boom, B2G awesomeness
I tested it, and it works. It is a fresh B2G build for the Nexus S

Please do not use any version earlier than 2012-04-13! The earlier version is NOT flashable via CWM (it is a CWM backup archive).
These CAN now be flashed like any other Android ROM. Be sure to do a backup within CWM. You can always restore the CWM backup.
This ROM is compiled from official b2g sources, with occasionally modifications sprinkled in by me. Credit goes to those main b2g devs who are making awesome headway here!
These will be built and uploaded daily using the latest sources. The goal of this is to allow people to test B2G without having to setup a Linux build environment as well as download multiple gigabytes of code, and mess with udev. ulimits, and more.
