My device is running version 1.3.0.0-prerelease that was compiled from source (by someone else). Now ZTE has finally released a version 1.1 'update' that I would like to install.

I love FirefoxOS, but clearly I'm a noob playing around where I shouldn't - so please help me!!

I've been using various versions on my Flame phone and have been able to successfully put v1.3, v1.4 and v2.1 on my phone using a Mac, a USB cable and adb via terminal and the shallowflash tool. However, I recently tried to install v2.2 (30-Sep-2014 nightly build) and it seemed to brick my phone - even though the adb terminal said Push was successful, after it rebooted, then the Flame gets hung on the Thundersoft logo forever.

So I removed battery, nothing - still hung on Thundersoft logo.

So I tried the power+volume up+home to get to the menu and I did a factory reset from that menu and then that seemed to work, then reboot still gets hung on Thundersoft logo.

So I searched around and found this page's Troubleshooting: Which showed how to get into fastboot sideload mode: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Developer_phone_guide/Flame

So I did that, and then finally the phone was showing up in terminal when I used "fastboot devices"

So then I found this page: https://hacks.mozilla.org/2013/06/updating-and-tweaking-your-firefox-os-developer-preview-phonegeeksphone/

And followed the steps under "Ok, so I bricked my phone" and in terminal entered these steps in the folder of the base download for Flame_2.0_v180_1

    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot reboot

All the steps said [OKAY] so I thought it was all worked, but I borked something because now the Flame not only gets stuck on the Thundersoft logo, but now it repeatedly reboots every 2 secs without touching it once it is on back and forth to the Thundersoft logo.

Can anyone please help me?? At this stage I'd even love to go back to v1.4 - I hope I haven't ruined my Flame phone.

thanks very much for any step by step instructions on how to fix this. :)

I want to share internet connection from notebook to my mobile phone (Keon) with micro usb cord (because I don't have wifi). I found in Firefox OS (version: Boot2Gecko 1.1.1.0-prerelease) Settings only the possibility to share internet from mobile phone to PC. I use a Debian based OS: Knoppix. I tried to accomplish this with Networking Manager and I did a new wired connection via my phone with "Shared to other computers" IPv4 Settings and with FE:...:02 (usb0) MAC address. But on my phone there is not internet although the connecton between my notebook and phone is estableshed.

Suppose I'm in an area where there is very little Wi-fi or other internet access (e.g. rural Papua New Guinea). Or, an area where the internet is strictly controlled or monitored. So the Marketplace is not an option.

People around me are using their cheap cell phones to share photos via bluetooth, and music and videos via SD cards.

Question: can I also distribute an app via MicroSD card or Bluetooth? I've tried this with some Java phones and found that installing an app from either of those sources is disallowed. What about on FirefoxOS?

The Firefox OS web site says you can update the OS from an SD card. One of the FAQ's at http://www.ebay.com/itm/ZTE-OPEN-C-3G-Unlocked-Firefox-Smartphone-Cell-Phone-Dual-Core-GPS-WiFi-AT-T-/291243074570?pt=Cell_Phones&hash=item43cf70a40a suggests that you cannot install an app from an SD card, at least on a ZTE Open C.

But I'd like to get more of a horse's-mouth answer, if possible. Is this something that Firefox OS leaves up to the discretion of each phone manufacturer? Or is it considered such a security risk that Firefox OS will not allow it on any phone?

Thanks, Lars
