It builds...now what? I'm app-less


(JBG) #1

I suspect I’m somewhere between:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/B2G_OS/Building
and:
https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/t/how-to-build-pine-and-m-c-please-read/9343
Everything is building/flashing fine (flame-kk), BUT…there are no apps in the gaia repo (kanikani?) and thus when/if the phone boots, it tries to give me the SIM unlock screen (somewhere on and then off screen), and then fails to present a keyboard. . .and can also sort of swipe to the pinned pages, but that’s about it. Do I need some other branch, or configuration?

The old Firefox onboarding/language/timezone/etc. is just gone, but maybe this is intentional.

Thanks! - JBG

I have pushed quite a lot of changes, can you make sure you have everything uptodate ? Current status is that it should shows icons but software home button is broken: any help is welcome to fix it. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1283799

Great, np…happy to have a look. Do you mind sharing branch/commit hashes so I know I’m building the right thing?

@lissyx thanks for the reply…with these commit hashes the “Unknown option: --with-android-ndk” issue returns. I have set an env variable (B2G_ANDROID_NDK_PATH).
