http://www.webosnation.com/review-ATT-hp-veer-4g The Veer contains a speedy 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 processor that was able to handle everything we could throw at it, thanks to the assistance of 512MB of RAM (the same as the Pre Plus and Pre 2). The Veer does disappoint a touch with only 8GB available for storage...

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for reading my post, when I heard about Firefox releasing a Mobile OS for Android I was filled with joy, I know a lot of work is needed to get it user friendly and bug free but its great to hear this.

I am curious on a few things really and here are my questions some might be easy some might not have answers just yet.

I have a HTC Desire X smartphone would I be able to install Firefox OS onto this? If "Yes" will it be an easy installation or will I need Linux background to fully understand its process?

Any dates yet on its release?

Will Mozilla be releasing this out in the market were you get a choice of IOS, Android, Windows and Firefox phones? or will it be only be available to download manually and install?

Thanks for answering and all the best Mozilla :)

Best regards,

I read another comment that my Coby Kyros tablet can run Firefox OS beta. Unless I run the tablet in root mode, I can't access Google Play. Any other options?

My tablet is using Android 4.0. (ICS)

The Coby website for the MID9740 says it has an Allwinner Cortex™-A8 however that is misleading, as this is really an AllWinner A10, which is a cortex A8 ARM CPU.to be accurate) The Cortex A8 is based on the ARMv7 architecture. It also has 1GB RAM, and cpu is 1 GHz. Out of the box,(and not rooted) it can't access the Google Play for FirefoxOS download. If I root it, I can download from Google. I'm not afraid to root my tablet, but I know many others' are. I had it rooted before using ClockworkMod, but decided to restore to factory.(similar to a routine bi-annual reformat with Windows and Linux on my desktop) I was just wondering if AndroidPit or any other sites have the beta available to test out on my Kyros. Could you please let me know? Thanks for your kind help, and have a great day! Best regards always,

Hello,

I want to develop an app based on ambient light sensor.But I found that the performance of sensor is quite better than the light sensor api. For example, the sensor can get ambient light info. 100,000 times per second, but the api just can read datas 20 times per second. So, that is my question. I want to change the performance of ambient light sensor API. So, I want to develop a new ambient light sensor api. But, I have no idea about how to develop an api based on firefox os. And, I didn't even know could it be developed by individual. So, if someone knows, can you tell me ?

Thanks a lot><

As far as I understand it, Mozilla gives the source Firefox OS (and its updates) to OEMs (like ZTE) and they would have to adjust it to their devices and (hopefully) offer it as an update to their users.

As Firefox OS is Free/Libre Open Source Software, do I have the right to see the source code of the changes my OEM did to Firefox OS and its apps?

I accidentially changed settings for developers as e.g. the grid. Now it seems impossible to undo this as I cannot get back to settings.

After the changes I have effected while trying to get to know my phone (which was a bad mistake, I will not repeat that for sure!) the touchscreen has changed completely and lost sensitivity. Everything has become very slow and e.g. to get the password in I first have to touch the number for a long moment and then the panel where the point is showed in. Once I get into the phone I cannot get to other screens than the start screen. There, only sometimes I cannot get into the apps. I have managed to open SMS and the browser. The others are just indicated by a voice but I cannot use them.

I hope I can undo the changes by getting back to settings. The problem is: I have no idea how to get back to settings as I cannot get anywhere but to the starting screen...

I am very happy for your help!

This isn't as much as a question as this is an idea to consider.

What I'm about to bring up are several ideas that could make the Firefox Marketplace awesome, a real alternative to the Chrome Web Store, because frankly enough (don't get me wrong, I love Firefox and its marketplace), a lot of the apps are Firefox OS only and even those aren't too great. Here are some ideas to make it up-to-par with its competitors:

Firefox OS Background Emulation Push for PC Developers Third-Party Hosted Web App Links

FIREFOX OS BACKGROUND EMULATION:

A lot of apps are mainly, well, links to web apps that could definitely run on a PC. A lot of the other apps can be run in an emulator (which should be built-in, but in the background) that opens whenever one of these Firefox OS-specific apps is opened. The emulator could run in the background, and these apps would run in a window without any of the complexity or fake hardware buttons that the current emulators have. If this feature was standard, that would be great.

Now the Firefox Marketplace could seriously compete with the Chrome OS Web Store if it's app selection was bigger, and a great place to start is the already existing Firefox OS apps.

PUSH FOR PC DEVELOPERS:

Mobile Firefox OS apps are really being pushed. That isn't a bad thing (at all!!!) but if there was an equal amount of push for PC apps, we could see a bigger app store.

I mean, these are web apps! There is very little reason that you can develop an app for mobile and NOT tick the little box that puts the app on PCs. Easy fix. And besides, with the emulation feature there is literally no reason to NOT export to PC unless you have a grudge or something.

THIRD-PARTY HOSTED WEB APP LINKS

This one will be trickier to start off, but eventually it could be really good.

A lot of major companies have powerful online apps, but do not want to make an app for the Firefox Marketplace. Why? "Because there are not enough apps". This is circular reasoning. They don't want to make an app because other people don't want to make an app because other people..... it doesn't go anywhere.

So, if uploading nothing but a .manifest file that featured a link to an app accompanied by some basic information by a third-party developer is legally acceptable, I think it should be approved. Actually, the act of uploading nothing but a link to a site. Not like a hosted app, because that requires a specific .manifest file in the actual webpage code, and isn't featured in the actual Firefox Marketplace.

Thanks for reading so far, and I hope I've made a difference for Firefox and it's marketplace ;D !!!
