Samsung Galaxy Ace 5380 Android 2.2.1 but can't install it as the Play Store says your device is not compatible. Please help!

Chosen solution

Sorry but the Samsung S5830 Galaxy Ace has a older ARMv6 type of cpu when a ARMv7 is needed. https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms/Android#System_Requirements

The good news is that Mozilla is looking to try and get ARMv6 Firefox releases in future.

Firefox 17 is announced compatible with ARMv6 Android 2.2+ devices Samsung Galawy Ace GT-S5830 (800MHz and 182MB RAM I believe) is on the "tested and verified compatible devices" but nope:

"Support for ANdroid ARMv6 phones with at least 800MHz processor and a minimum of 512MB of available RAM"

Goosh I wonder how many of the 250.000.000 ARMv6 Android devices will meet with the 800MHz and 512MB RAM requirements?
