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
   Gecko: b2g-37.0a2.en-US.android-arm.tar.gz
   to your Device? [y/N]y

Seems that Virtual Box was to blame: I run the upgrade scripts from an Xubuntu virtual machine. After migrating to VMware player, things ran through. As reported by others as well, Virtual Box has stability issues with USB communication.

Hi feklee,

I see that you also posted this question on the dev-b2g mailing list:

That is the best place for this question, since the list is seen by hundreds of developers that are familiar with the b2g project.

In the meantime, the new base image v18D is currently being tested and should be made available in a not-so-distant future.
