Notifications panel doesn't open on ZTE Open version B2G


My Notification panel isn't opening. I'm running the latest version of FFOS, I updated today. A previous version of a few days ago had the same problem. The original version I got with the phone, I think it was v1.1 didn't have this problem. So is there any way I can fix the problem00?

The most recent stable release version of Firefox OS is v1.1. If you are using a more recent version than that then you are likely to come across some minor issues because they are development builds.

I suggest you move back to v1.1 to solve this issue.

Alternatively you can help to fix the bug by reporting it on bugzilla:


I had a brief look and couldn't find anyone else having reported the bug already.

I hope that helps.

@linuxholic: I flashed it by cloning and setting up the whole FFOS Repo. You have to then build the FFOS version you want. And then you have to flash it to your phone using ADB (Android Debug Bridge). I did all this on Ubuntu and advise you to do it on any Linux OS...

Read through this guide: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Developer_phone_guide/ZTE_OPEN

And then follow the instructions on cloning, setting up building and flashing FFOS here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Building_and_installing_Firefox_OS

Note: There's a small issue with ZTE Open that it doesn't correctly configure the bootloader on default builds. So it's mentioned on the page (first link) how to avoid this. You need to add a boot.img image to your build before flashing it. This is the page they link to: http://sl.edujose.org/2013/10/adapted-boot-image-for-use-with-b2g.html
