ABOUT ROM

Hey guyz, this is my source compiled port of B2G [Firefox OS] for our beloved HTC Explorer :)
Since this is the very first build, its not yet a daily driver and expect a lot of bugs and issues.
Currently B2G supports only HOME button. That means except the HOME button no other buttons will work in our device.
If you want to go back to a previous menu use the onscreen BACK button.

Firefox OS is a Linux-based open source operating system for smartphones and tablet computers being developed by Mozilla. It is designed to allow HTML5 applications to communicate directly with the device's hardware using JavaScript.

Great work!!
One question...
Is the "bug fixing" traditional??
Or is it just a whole other world??
Either way, i'd love to see some "behind-the-scenes" work on this....
Once again, awesome work!!

SIM Card detected. :highfive: But it shows undetected in Notification. IDK why!
Calls working :laugh: Both Side Clear call Voice. No robotic Voice issues or anything like that.
In 2G or 3G only Mode Manual Detection works and Network getting registered!
Automatic Network Detection Not working.

    Can you share your device tree and prepare a small compiling guide? I wanna get my hands on them :)

    Sure bro :) .. I'll write in detail because this is the first ROM for Pico based on AOSP Android sources( I believe all other ROMS are based on Cyanogenmod source, right? ) and you have to make lot of changes in the source code / Makefiles and a new AOSP device tree to adapt for our device :) .. Its both fun and educative :)
