No no. Still working on the skate. Just real life taking up most of my time.

In the past couple of days I've probably spent more time on the skate than the xperia.


Can u collaborate with this dev?

Hm. The hardware seems similar enough, if anything.

They didn't manage to boot it yet... They say there are components not compatible with ARMv6.

Good news everyone!

Mozilla will decide hopefully in a few days, or already has, on official ARMv6 support, but encouraging fact, they got themselves a lot of ARMv6 devices.

Ordered (11/01)

  • ZTE Atlas W (blade2)
  • ZTE Skate N960
  • Kyocera Milano (C5120)

Well, the only thing I could find out is, it's the CDMA version of the U960, and it should be as they are based in the USA.

Here is where I could find some specs atleast: http://product.pconl...704_detail.html
Here are specs that differ in CPU speed: http://product.yesky...543/param.shtml

So hopefully they are close enough :)

Besides, it seems it's even older, with a MSM7627 chipset according to pdadb: http://pdadb.net/ind...ualcomm_msm7627

Msm7627 is the sister chip set. It's just as old ad it was released at the same. The only difference is the CDMA vs GSM which you've already pointed out.

So you're back on this project again, or atleast will be back? :D

There is some progress in the above mentioned xda topic. It seems user adfad666 provided some patches ( HERE ) for armv6, which make armv7 hacking obsolete. So he says it builds now, and boots.

I got the sources of b2g and gaia, but haven't managed to apply one patch. Seems I have stuff missing. If anyone manages to apply these and could shed some light what repos are needed, would be very welcome!

Cheers!

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..
