Why is my ZTE Open unable to update Firefox OS?
Everytime i hit button check for update there is an error message 'problem to download update'.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0
ZTE open users can build 1.1, 1.2 or 1.3. The trick is, they have to build it. There is a build of 1.3 for download at this website.

1.1 has already been released to ZTE open users in Spain.
Well I am in the US and I hope it hits soon.
Waiting for ZTE anything is a lost cause. Mozilla, make compiled updates available!
I have escalated this thread for attention. Thank you for your patience. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Is there a button where average users can do that? I don't like thinking our concerns are ignored until a mod presses a magic link.
With major bugs.
Optimal variant- manually compile pre1.3 FF OS. And never, never, nevermore not buy any ZTE production. FF OS is very interesting project, but ZTE is $#$T@#R company. I'm tired of waiting updates ZTE. But real- manually compiled pre1.3 FF OS - very stable and normally working on ZTE Open.
Doramia: I understand that you have no released the update yet but I have requested some device information from you in another thread to better assist you. I myself do have a ZTE Open device and I did get an OTA update that updated me to 1.1. I understand that you are still waiting and I thank you for your patience.
@feer56, no 1.1 here in UK? When ZTE? When?
I to manage to receive an update to 1.1 after pressing the update button several times. Now, as julienw mentioned, my call log doesn't work anymore because I had a call from a "anonymous" caller in the call log... No biggy, tho very annoying... The bigger problem: 3G doesn't work anymore :(.
Also, when I hit update now... guess what: error downloading updates... Again! :( ...
I guess I'll have to look again in the logcat and paste the error. For now, I forgot my cable at the office, so maybe tomorrow I'll post the logcat...

The logcat for when I press the update button and I get an error can be fpund here: https://gist.github.com/postal2600/c4c98f5c08d13470cd04 .
The interesting lines seems to me line 87 (which I remember seeing before the update as well) and 101.
Hope it helps.
but.... Ebay ZTE Open will never been updated, that is certain. Now we have to buy another phone
I'm pretty sure the failed update demonstrates a willingness to update platform. So c'mon how about a 1.1 Xmas present ZTE?!?
Now it shows me I have 4 updates available but when i try to download them, after about 2Mb, it disapears and nothing is updated.
The error in the logcat is this: https://gist.github.com/postal2600/7896434
The problem is the Explorer application which I've installed it before the update. I've unchecked it from the update list and the update went through.
postal2600: thanks for reporting.
WRONG_APP_STORE_ID: The update available has an ID attached to it and unfortunately it does not match the ID of the app you currently have or of the Marketplace. This is a Firefox and developer issue. You can file a bug for this or contact the developer of the app for more assistance.
Just managed to get mine updated to 1.1 today. Zte have finally released a zip on their website.
Hope this works for you guys too.

I can verify that the problem continues (and is, in fact worse for me) with the recent 1.1 update on this particular phone. I don't have any other FF OS phones to work with or test, though.
For me, it's doing it with the Marketplace app. Actually, that brings up a question. I've got the Simulator on my Firefox install, is there a way I can take the app from the Github repo and just push it to the phone, like anything I write for it?
