Any GP Keon community builds out there?


(Mauricio Navarro Miranda) #1

Hello, there!

I’m sad about http://downloads.geeksphone.com/ not providing updated builds, and I know there wont be any updates by geeksphone.

Are there any community builds for Geeksphone Keon and Peak?

Thank you, all!

BTW, I’m using

3.0.0.0-prerelease
20150320015602

And for me I’ts perfectly fine to use inestable software, as far as it get updates.

Im not sure there is any community builds, as far as i know there is just the http://downloads.geeksphone.com/ images. I will look around a little more to see if there is a way to shallow flash the devices with a freshly built gaia. I know if you want to you can clone b2g and compile a new base image yourself if you so please.

The shallow flash do not work for KEON device, I have tried do this in the remote server for a long time but always fails the process, I have asking in the list and the forum of geeksphone but anyone known nothing about this, the only way to create a build for KEON is with the long process, at the moment I have the worst conection to internet in the world :grin: but I would like to contribute to anyone who take this task for compile by themself, guiding him in the process, with errors, o feedback and testing with my KEON device.

When I get a new computer I might be able to help you, I will need a lot of assistance though… I only have a flame device.

OK, but i have a bad news, some guys in mozilla hispano, we try to do this but at the moment all fails, for branch 3.0 the process ends but the device only show a blank screen and in the 2.2 exists a problem with the toolchain, more in this bug

Hamm… Like I said I currently do not have a laptop, but when I get one I will try to find a solution for you. I think this is a much needed asset seeing as the amour of people who have this phone and are kinda dead in the water because they have no current builds for it.

I have pulled a request to fix the toolchain error. However…
Gaia doesn’t seem to work on 2.2 and 3.0.
