Regarding the archived thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1014911 I found the LG Optimus LTE SU640 handset has almost the same dimensions as the Flame reference handset. I ordered a case for this particular LG phone and it fits the Flame phone without problems.

Obtaining a case was the only issue preventing me from using the Flame handset as my daily phone, so I hope this info is useful for others.

Unfortunately, there is no devices for sale in Portugal at the moment.

When it will became possible to buy in Portugal? It will be in a near future or not? Or do I need to buy from another country?

I was looking for an update for the past few months for my Intex Cloud Fx , which is up-to-date to 1.3 I then realized that a new version is under development (Firefox OS 2.0 unstable), still I am stuck with the same touch lagging operating system even though its stable. It was hard for me to get the adb working without the android sdk installed ,by searching for the right driver for Spreadtrum sc6821 for windows. Once I paired it , the Webide worked fine with the phone and I enjoyed the app install experience!

My main censure is that I do not know how to install my own build of Firefox OS(OS currently in GitHub, code name Tarako Supported) without unlocking the firmware device(by the way the carrier is unlocked). Developers mentioned in the Firefox forum stating that, my device is firmware locked.

Here is the question, there are tools for the ZTE variants for unlocking the firmware but is there a tool for my device ? I had googled couple of times and searched various forums but I could not find it! There is no hope of my device getting an official update! (Intex has a worse reputation as a Smartphone provider, still I bought it for the hopes of Firefox OS ecosystem )

When I open the Gallery app, the upper loading indicator starts but never stops. And if I try to delete some photos, the button doesn't work. Ask me "are you sure ?" I answer "yes", but nothing change. I connected the phone with my computer using a USB cable and deleted all the photos, and after I take new photos with the same result.

The screen on my Keon is shattered. Fortunately, it still responds to touch. Just in case, I wonder:

How would I unlock my Firefox OS phone if it stops responding to touch?

I'm running 1.3 on my Keon, and on my Flame (screen still good!) it's the 3.0 nightly.

On Android one can connect a mouse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTW0yfol_kQ

Also, when I try to get email, I get a bunch of blue letters and in a format that looks like an outline, not a clean page with all my emails on it. It's like the format isn't html.

What is the solution?

My Flame does not want to take production build 2.2: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/b2g/nightly/latest-mozilla-b2g37_v2_2-flame-kk/

Before attempting to flash, I installed base image v188. I repeated the entire process several times, with the Recovery Cable, and with a normal USB cable.

Am I doing something wrong, i.e. should it work? Or is production build 2.2 flawed? Sth. else?

Details:

   $ sudo ./shallow_flash.sh --gaia=gaia.zip --gecko=b2g-37.0a2.en-US.android-arm.tar.gz
   Are you sure you want to flash
   Gaia: gaia.zip

The latest base image for Firefox OS is tagged 188 [1] and it contains Firefox OS 2.2. I encounter a weird bug that doesn't permit me to install any version of Firefox OS but 2.2 on my Flame. [2] So I think that testing a new base image based on v. 3.0 let me install Firefox OS 3.0 and to fix that bug. How can I do that without compiling everything by myself, because I don't have enough free space and RAM on my old PC? Thank you very much!

A month ago while i was having a call, firefoxOS crashed as whole.

It restarted without restarting the phone (no sim lock).

a mozilla crash reporter opened and i sended the crash report to mozilla.

after that most of the installed apps show blank.

but all the content is there. i can scroll, i can tap, i can swipe, i can call. but i have to do it blind.

i added a few screenshots that will show the problem.


Question: how can i read the crash report with ADB? Question: how can i get back to a normal system? (best wouldt be true ADB/recovery)

Phone: Alcatel One Touch Fire E (6015X) System: FirefoxOS 2.0 (got it via FOTA update at christmas like described here: https://www.soeren-hentzschel.at/mozilla/firefox-os/2014/12/25/fire-e-alcatel-one-touch-verteilt-firefox-os-2-0-und-firefox-hello/ )

unfortunatly i cannot get to systemsettings to see the exactly build number...
