Hello pureexe,

Oh Yes, Sorry for the confusion,

for me flashable was to say it can be flashed using fastboot -w update full*.zip

Sorry for that, i have not generated the zip file to be flashed by Recovery, and thanks for sharing the info, i will try that method also. a new learning for me.

While checking the config file i can only find below devices that can be configured in my source..

- galaxy-s2
- galaxy-nexus
- nexus-4
- nexus-s
- nexus-s-4g
- otoro
- unagi
- inari
- keon
- peak
- leo
- hamachi
- helix
- wasabi
- tara
- pandaboard
- emulator
- emulator-jb
- emulator-x86
- emulator-x86-jb

i fear we need to port as mentioned in B2G wiki. with the proprietary files extracted from the device.
However not sure if you already visited, but below link might be of some use to you.

I'd like to try FIrefox OS (on my Nexus 4), but not clear for me what is this so many files in your directory.
1. What is the diference between files in "full_mako-img-eng.administrator.zip" and files in directory directly?
2. What are these ramdisk files? They are necessary for install? I found and instruction, but in this intruction there are only four files:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash userdata userdata.img

Ok, I was brave (and I reread all post in this topic, and found the 5th post), and install thsi rom yesterday. Everything is fine.

Where to write bugreport? This topic, or bugzilla?
- data counting doesn't work
- USB connection doesn't work
- yahoo mail doesn't refresh the feed manually (?)
- GPS doesn't work
etc.

I am currently working to port firefox os on nexus 7. So totally focused there. But will try to see if i can solve. However i feel these bugs are in original source itself.
