Cannot recall, as I have deleted them... I'll clone them again tomorrow at work. Anyways, how big should it be? A few hundred megabites, aint it?

I used this:

git clone git://github.com/mozilla-b2g/B2G.git

And cloned Gaia separately..
You need to
repo init -u git://github.com/mozilla-b2g/b2g-manifest.git -b master

repo sync

Cheers mate, that worked! Had my struggle to get a decent copy of repo... but sources are downloading now :)

So, yeah, it's 2 Gb now, but still missing files.

This is what it says when I check the patch:



error: b2g/config/mozconfigs/common.override: No such file or directory

error: build/autoconf/android.m4: No such file or directory

error: build/autoconf/arch.m4: No such file or directory

error: js/src/build/autoconf/android.m4: No such file or directory

error: js/src/build/autoconf/arch.m4: No such file or directory

error: media/libvpx/vpx_config_arm-linux-gcc.h: No such file or directory

I'm guessing it's because the lack of configuration. Our device is not in the default config options, so I need to make a config for our device..

Edit:

Just red manual application is needed for the second patch, and have to modify manifest.xml too...

Edit2:

Stupid me! Was trying to apply patch in wrong folder :blush: It needs to be applied in gecko folder, and the second patch needed to be applied in build folder, so patching done! Will take a look at this manifest.xml next.

Damn, ARMv7 then. Guess we'll have to wait for ZTE's ARMv6 devices.

Good to know they're confident with how well it runs on hardware similar to ours, though. I'd have expected the official dev phone to be at least 1GHz+.

That's existed for a very long time. At the moment Firefox OS is hardcoded in armv7

Indeed, all the devs are waiting for Mozilla :)
