I just forked dazz git repo (That's the reason that alpha1 doesn't contain any fix...)

 

Alpha2 will be from my own git repo, and I'll start to push all changes on it ;)

 

Please be patient, I'm still learning how to work with G300 (It has small diferences with galaxy ace, which was my previous rom devs :P)

 

PS: I'm thinking to make a recovery zip... but Until ALPHA stage, it would be better use fastboot...

I'm diving into this after I finished my current project.

Glad to know you're working on it, it's a good OS. Which branch are you using?

 

Never mind, just looked at the manifest.

Welcome to the Non-Android Zone!

 

 

DISCLAIMER:

Alpha Stage: USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

 

Your warranty will be void if you proceed on this instalation

Anyway, all goes at your own risk, We are not a technical service, if you brick your phone we can advise you, but we don't take care of any unexpected result (EX: bricked phones).

 

Information:

This is the beggining of the Firefox OS for our Huawei ascend G300.

I started to compile using Dazz sources, and here I'll try to publish new versions and fixes as fast as I can.

 

For "noobs": Firefox OS is a new Operative System for some devices. It's 100% Open Source and that allow us to get our own version running on our device.

More information about Firefox OS: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/os/

That's why i didn't used DPI correction on first Alpha, but it seems that it's FxOS problem ATM...

Here you are a logcat for big problem: scaling UI

 

something that i noticed, is that camera app doesn't fit preview with g300 resolution, and maybe it's the same problem for HQ youtube videos.

 

A "quick" solution is force the resolution in each app, but it should be a global fix for that

 

 

http://logcat.scheffsblend.com/view?id=929002

 

I need some help here... any ideas?

Maybe this can help: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=888121

Or this: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=874295

What kernel do you use in this project, the 3.0.8 or the 3.4?

Don't you want to work on FFOS 1.3 instead of 1.2?

I'm using 3.0.x ... maybe it's time to use 3.4 but i wasn't too sure of the change, maybe next build will include it

 

due 1.2 it's "stable" now, I prefeer make it work al 100%, but let's see what happen with this bug...

Can you make the kernel to report proper screen width and height?

Maybe Daz can help you with. Since 160DPI is a fallback when the kernel doesn't provide this info.

Yes i just read that.

 

Maybe 3.4 has that problem fixed, i'll try to compile with that kernel, if bug persist, we must modify that in the kernel

You might get into other problems switching kernels, my advice is to modify the kernel if hardcoding the DPI in nsWindow.cpp isn't sufficient.

I don't know how camera gets the screen size for preview but I'm wondering if you couldn't hardcode some width x height dimensions in camere.js  to  see if that makes any difference. I'd also post on b2g forum the logcat and ask for some clues.
