Introduction

Welcome to the Unofficial Firefox OS, Boot to Gecko(B2G), Nightlies for the Nexus S
The build is compiled from the latest B2G repos using the build scripts on mac.

Notes

This build is Unofficial work, not related to B2G nightlies. Please do not report bugs to B2G team for anything that is provided as part of this thread.

Use this at your own risk. I will not be accountable if this causes you phone to fail, or you lose your data. The backup of your data is your responsibility.
B2G rom image erases /data and /cache partitions, so, you should backup /system and /data with CWM backup menu. After you flash B2G, you cannot recovery your android user data if you don't backup.


You can not burn Firefox OS ROM by Clockwork Mod Recovery, burn it by fastboot command yet. If anyone help me to make update.zip, help contact me.

Thank you.

[windows] download the zip. inside you will find 4 .img files. place them in the same directory as your fastboot.exe

Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash userdata userdata.img

    If you guys really want to try out Boot 2 Gecko, go to Nexus S General section and search for B2G thread, where a user named Moriarty compiled flash able B2G rom.

    Can't you share atleast a CWM backup of the rom ?. so it'll be easier to get the os on to the device .

    Thanks.
