Starting with Alpha 11, we are now producing Gecko/Gaia recovery updates. The easiest way to apply them is to rely on an alternative recovery, like ClockworkMod Recovery, put the zip file on the device SD card, and then install it.

Before being able to apply updates in recovery mode, you should at least flash partitions with alpha 26, because of the GCC 4.8 switch.

Directions to flash partitions:
Code:
fastboot erase boot
fastboot erase system
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img

Erasing and flashing the userdata partition should be only done in last resort case when you are hitting issues.

Locales:

Those builds are multi-locales:
  • They includes all the localization work done by Mozilians that is officially available (present in Gaia and with a Mercurial Gaia-L10N repository).
  • All the keyboards that are part of Gaia are enabled, starting with alpha 20.

If you are willing to work on a new locale or keyboard, please head to Bugzilla.

Current Status:

Nearly all features should be working as expected. Here is a link for details: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox_OS/Samsung_Nexus_S. Regressions may happens.

Please check and report issues on Bugzilla: make sure the bug is not already reported, and file a new one https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi. Please mark your bug as blocking "b2g-nexuss", so that it can be tracked in the Nexus S support meta-bug.

Screenshots:

This is pretty much how it looks.

Here is a good video of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3b0Iy1V2RWc

Haha. No problem. This is why I want it moved to general. I'm not developing it. Just uploading my builds so people can see where Mozilla is heading. Its much better then where it was a month ago.

Aww, didn't work on my NS4G. I wiped data/cache, then /system, but still didn't work. It says

Code:
Doing sh*t...

set_perm: some changes failed
E:Error in /sdcard/B2G-Nexus-S-4G-100612.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.


Edit:
Lol, anyone want to help me figure this out? Seems like a great OS, but us NS4G users can't enjoy it... D;

Flash ok, boot ok, and wow, it boots very very fast for the first time!! Maybe it doesn't have dalvik cache.
A bit laggy when start apps, auto select network doesn't work, manual select connects fail :(
One more, icons and text are so tiny :|

It show network bar, strength is good, but can't make phone call, sms,... It said no network connection.

Open the rom zip, extract boot.img, flash it with fashboot, then full wipe and try flash rom again. Hope this help :)
