What works:
- Boot
- Touchscreen
- Sound

What doesn't work:
everything else

Issues:
RIL: https://github.com/M1cha/B2G/issues/1
WiFi: https://github.com/M1cha/B2G/issues/2

Download:
http://www.mediafire.com/?255euk84cv3gl2e

Changelog:
12/09/09: initial release

Installation:
- copy zip to sdcard
- wipe data and cache
- install zip

Note1: You should use this in Multiboot. I never tested as real system and it makes no sense in actual status.
Note2: First boot takes longer, because data-partition will be build. After wipe data&cache system still works because he rebuilts the data-partition.

Sourcecode:

Screenshots:
(The wrong colours are a DDMS-problem. It looks perfect on screen)

Interesting stuff :)

Can someone explain it a bit further? :) This isn't based on Android at all? And what are (will be) the advantages/disadvantages over it?

You lot need to be more techy :p

This is based on HTML 5 and it's supposed to be a even cheaper alternative to android and other OS's
.... There are plans for phones to be coming out next year I think in the US, also they say they can port 75% or more android and IOS apps as they are made in HTML5.... search up for more info. Also there is another OS called Tizen coming next year aswell I think but it's based on android.

I kinda started falling behind on tech stuff when the tech magazines prices jumped over my head :/

Okay, so it's cheaper, that is a great plus. How about performance? Anyone tested already? Will do it tomorrow morning after the exam anyway :D

Mika, will it be possible to make it feature complete? I know it's a bit too early too ask, but just wondering if there are some already known kernel issues or something like that in the way?

*EDIT* Damn... Just noticed that there's no downloads to try just yet :D

    tizen is not based on android. its more of a fusion between meego and bada... though initially suppose to be using enlightenment libs... but now also based on html5

    Amazing! I never thought we will see this! a beta of a beta, betaception (? and about the screens, yes, the demo running on a SGSII looked WAY better than this, but dunno why they changed it.


    Next step: web Os!!!! :victory:

    edit: a video running B2G as a POC will be nice, if thats not too much to ask for

    I found the github of the SGS2-B2G which seems to be of the leed UI-designer of that project.

    It seems these changes just aren't published to mozilla's github.

    I will build again with the new sources and if everything works I'll publish the first build.

      Expecting some great work from the devs...

      This may give a new life for old warrior defy!

      Sent from my MB525 using xda app-developers app

      When did he get old?

      Sent from my MB526 using xda premium

      In my opinion B2G is in an too early stage to port it to defy.
      We would need to make very much changes which should be done by mozilla.
