Building B2G OS for Aries Z3C


#1

Hi everyone.

I’m new in this community. i might be late but since a few days, i’m trying to follow the procedure on https://wiki.mozilla.org/B2G/Transition_Project#Building_the_Transition_Branches for Aries Z3C.
Anybody completed the build for Z3C aries ? if yes, where can i find it ? how can i flash it on my Z3C ?
Thanks.

As reported in https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/t/b2g-installer-add-on-for-firefox/7523/4 you should rely on the B2G Installer addon for this, it contains a (quite old now but good enough) build if you want to start hacking.

Building and flashing should work flawlessly as documented. If you have a precise problem, just ask :slight_smile:

It’s very nice of you but we already have Z3c builds. If you can provide builds for other devices and maintain them it would be very very valuable. Also, could you produce blobfree build and make PR againts the b2g-installer-builds github repo to centralize and ease the installation of those ?

This would also make you safe of any legal liablity :slight_smile:

Nexus 5? :slight_smile:

Ok :slight_smile: I just have a Hamachi, Inari, Keon and Fire C, so I’ll try to make some roms for those devices, If I need some help with the B2G-addon may I ask to you?

Why not, Nexus 5 would be a good candidate and we don’t have this device scheduled on TaskCluster. Someone able to build and test a bit before releasing them would provide valuable contributions :slight_smile:

Sure, but those are old ICS devices, I don’t think there is any value in hacking them: gfx part of gecko b2g for ics has been a burden to support from the gfx team, they are going to kill it as soon as they can :slight_smile:

FYI I have produced a new blobfree build: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/b2g-installer-builds/commit/a194eda90094cb492a4f3060e6d2dc92a192cf27

It is available within the addon. Gecko is a debug one so it is slow, but you should get WiFi (configure via wpa_supplicant.conf, settings is broken) and data connectivity working. Browsing the web should also start to work.

@albertopq fixed settings, I am updating the v2 blobfree zip file to include this :slight_smile:

Anyone here is doing blobfree build for FLAME?

BTW, for create this type of build if needed that the device is connected?

After a couple of weeks of breakages, I have been able to fix building of z3c on taskcluster: https://tools.taskcluster.net/task-inspector/#F8snCjY4QkStzt39hwzVoQ/0
