I just got the latest ZTE Open, with FFOS_V1.0.0B02 . There are several wifi SSIDs in my university operate like this: first connect to AP without authentication; visit any web page; get redirected to the web login page; after authentication, can communicate with other sites. It turns out none of them works. Firefox complains "The address isn't valid" when get redirected. My other devices work find with those SSIDs.

Also note that 802.1x is not supported yet.

Get wifi connection is the first thing to do. Then I can try update the system and install apps. It's frustrating to get stuck at the very beginning. Please advise what should I try...

Well, as far i know, the Alcatel Onetouch Firefox Os has the compass sensor buit in. So, i've installed apps for compass reading but these doesn't work properly. They intialize and stay freezed. I have installed others that use g-sensor like 'Level' and it works fine. I assume the compass sensor fails. Is there any way to test it?

Thanks in advance for answers

I have an ebay-bought ZTE Open. Before the recently released upgrade to Firefox OS 1.1, geolocation (in HereMaps, zMaps, etc) was working perfectly: very fast, and with a very small error. After the upgrade, geolocation locks in the wrong position and has a huge error circle. I've tried different GPS-using applications, being outside for a long time, and rebooting the phone but the problem persists. I know of, at least, one other person with exactly the same problem.

I have a ZTE Open for Telefonica Movistar Mexico.

On my ZTE Open, adb debug is _disabled_ I was trying to update it via "More Info" menu, but it never worked. So I tried to update it via SD Update using the ztems rom [0]

It just bricked my phone and now, every time I try to update it via SD card using any ZTE Open rom (I tried with several roms), including the Movistar Mexico's one [1] I'm getting errors like this:

E:failed to verify whole-file signature E:signature verification failed Installation aborted.

No matter if I delete the first three lines of /META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script, I'm getting the same kind of errors.

Please, any ideas about this?

ZTE Open Phone will not boot after 1.1 Update

I got the download for the official 1.1 update from ZTE. I have followed the instructions, but when the phone rebooted it goes to a blank screen after playing the firefox boot animation. I let it sit there for about 10 min and it wouldn't respond. Finally had to pull the battery.

I tried the md5 check, and I get the following error:

Finding file_list package... Opening file_list package... Verifying file_list package... E:failed to open /system/etc/verify.zip (No such file or directory) E:signature verification failed


I tried to reinstall the update and got this:

-- Install /sdcard... Finding update package... Opening update package... Verifying update package... E:failed to verify whole-file signature E:signature verification failed Installation aborted.

Is there a way to restore my phone? I've been searching the internet and I keep getting linked back to the ZTE Open site, but the old images seem to have been removed.

Right now, when I boot the phone I get the FireFox OS logo, then the fox animation, then I get a quick bright flash of white before the screen goes out.


If anyone could help me, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

I'm running Firefox OS 1.1 in a UK ZTE Open (from Ebay Store).

I would like to call foreign numbers through a VoIP service (Jumblo, to be precise). In their website they have instructions to place a call directly instead of having to dial the target number everytime one calls their access number. It requires to dial: (access number)+(pause)+(target number).

It gives general instructions that in some phones the pause can be inserted by holding the '0', '*', or '#' keys; I tried all these approaches but none of them worked in my phone.

What is the right way to add a dialing pause in Firefox OS???

I have version 1.0.1 and I want to upgrade. The reason I haven't done it yet is because I recently bought the phone second hand. But I am unable to update it and what happens is the circular icon indicating that something is happening shows up, then disappears and there is no message about updating. If I cannot upgrade it, is there some other way to upgrade the browser because I cannot use it properly at the moment. Thanks

I waited patiently for the OS update hoping it would solve my email problem. It doesn't.

Here's the setup:

I have an IMAP account with SSL from my hosting company. I manually entered the account information. The phone happily accepts that information. The account is added. The inbox shows up with the correct messages. Then the problem starts:

1. I tap on a message. 2. A new window opens and displays the header information 3. Instead of the body of the message, I only see the progress loop going on forever.

Here's what I've done so far:

1. Soft reset 2. Hard reset. 3. Install OS V 1.1 4. Check with my hosting company, they were very courteous and checked my email account. Nothing was wrong there and I can get my mail with my computer and iPad.

What's going on? Am I the only one having this problem?

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.

I have an eBay version American standard ZTE Open with OS version 1.1 updated onto the phone. When I missed a phone call, I would be able to see a new notification on the drag down menu but the missed call would be be logged onto the call log. The missed call log is always empty.

Am I the only one who has this problem? It's annoying because if I missed a call from someone whom is not only contact list there's no way I can call the person back.
