Edit : I PORTED FIREFOX OS TO SMULTRON !!! (with my Viking method)


First i edited the CM9 kernel Ramdisk => init.b2g.rc and init.rc files
Second i ported the latest Keon nightly replacing libs,bulid.prop lines etc. -Basic ROM porting
I need a tester..I have smultron but it's my only phone and right now i use it alot ,i can''t play with it

So if anyone want to try and see if it works HERE IS THE ZIP (KERNEL INSIDE) -Smultron_Firefox_OS_1.zip

1.First make a backup !
2.WIPE EVERYTHING (SYSTEM,DATA,CACHE,DALVIK)
3.Install Smultron_Firefox_OS_1.zip

4.Don't blame me if anything goes wrong (theoretically only bootloop can happen but you never know )

We have :
-OFFICIAL PORTING TUTORIAL -https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox_OS/Porting
-Official ICS from sony
-Stable CM9
-HVGA resolution as B2G phones
-Snapdragon S2 1Ghz
-The kernel is very similar to the stock kernel , but it has firefox os patch (need modify init.rc or something like this) I'am a Noob
-similar phones that have B2G ports like HTC EXPLORER,ZTE BLADE III ,Nexus S and others :P

So..why not to Xperia 2011 line? or atleast to MDPI phones ...
If a developer can port this to one of this devices then it will be very easy to make it for all MDPI
From my experience with Android i think that Firefox OS is a better OS.Why? Because is simple and fast.
On my xperia mini ST15i i tested all kinds of Roms...CM7,9,10,10.1 MIUI ,LEWA OS,stock GB,stock ICS ...all of them seems to be very resources hungry because Android is heavy.
Firefox OS:
-lightweight
-HTML5
-WebGL
-Boot in less than 6 seconds
-The small footprint of a browser based operating system means that B2G should significantly extend battery life before re-charging.
-B2G will be the first mobile OS to use Do Not Track at the operating system level.
-many more

...this is the future.

I have the computer to do it (i5 3570k) but the instructions look pretty complicated. Also my internet is cr*p. I got a 384 kbit/s connection
I am interested in trying firefox os as well. Maybe someone else has the knowledge and computer power to do it?

I've got lots of computer power (4gb ram, 1Tb hard drive) and have a small knowledge. Would be happy to do it but would like some one to help me. Also got good internet. If it is only for unlocked bootloader, I can't help you as much as I could because I have a locked bootloader.
