Hello,

I am pretty new to this FirefoxOS but I think I know a lot about Android.

Today I found a official build of FirefoxOS for Huawei Y300-II or Y300-F1 I'm not sure. I flashed it on my Huawei Ascend Y300 (old one with android) and it worked flawlessly untill I found that only Home button works.

And I would like to make atleast my Back button work. I was alto thinking - when I extract System.img it has some files same as android and one of them is /usr/keylaout/generic.kl. I compared those two files and they seem to be pretty same.

So will FirefoxOS ever have support for 3 buttons phones? Is there already a 3button phone from where I could try to port support for it?

And also what files are used to control sound? Because it doesnt work either.

Thanks and sorry for my english.

FXOS does not use any other buttons than home. Apps should be written in a way that you dont need any, much like IOS.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Isn't possible to "bind" this taskmanager (long home press) to maybe menu button?
