Introduction

Firefox OS, also known as Boot2Gecko, is a lightweight mobile OS made by Mozilla, based around HTML5. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_OS
This is an unofficial build of FirefoxOS for flo and deb.

What does not work:
  • MTP
  • Mobile data (on LTE version of N7)
  • Not really smooth


Installation

These ZIP files act like an Android ROM, so the installation is the same as usual - do a factory reset in recovery and flash the ZIP file.​

Version 1.2 (stable): b2g_flo_1.2_20131011-2.zip
Version 1.3 (in development): b2g_flo_1.3_20140207.zip


Source code
All source code is from official B2G repositories.
Device folder: https://github.com/Tasssadar/android_device_asus_flo/tree/b2g-4.3_r2.1
Manifest for flo: https://gist.github.com/Tasssadar/6933349

Thank you so much for this. I tried to look at doing it myself but had not had time to fully read and figure it out. Can't wait to see this in action.

:( it won't boot. I get a pink screen. Could it be the host kernel I use? I thought this would load whatever kernel was in the new ROM. I use glitch kernel for latest CM nightly.

No, bluetooth does not work. It acts as if it would, but it won't find any devices.

Why wouldn't I put system and data in one file? It belongs together, /system contains gecko.

Settings -> Device information -> More information -> Developer -> Enable software home button

Don't know if anyone else said this but if you try to use the notification bar in 1.3, it will just stay down and won't go away. I know it is in development. Also can we flash a custom kernel for it that does not use the Kexec patch?
