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. However, when I attempt to install the update I receive a signature verification failure error message. How do I install the update provided by ZTE?

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. :)

Hello, My Alcatel One Touch Fire showed me today that there´s a firmware update for my phone. I tried several times to install ist but it won't work! It´s getting to the point where it says it has to be restarted to install the update, it then shows me a orange screen with a wheel trying to install. I think thats how its supposed to be and suddenly there is a red exclamation point and the installation won't work.

Is there anything I can do ? Kind regards!

I'm well versed in android and fastboot but I can't see any information about flashing builds that aren't built yourself.

I have previously installed b2g onto my old gs2 so I could follow the compile and install process but there appear to be builds available on the ftp.

I have just got this flame and would like to get a better understanding of the flash process before I try nightlies.

If it's possible to change my update channel through adb so that flashing isn't required that would probably be better again.

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.
