Today, I enjoyed my day with this amazing version of Firefox OS Spark. First let me tell you about it - it’s a customization and features built on top of the next generation of the Firefox OS platform and is a subset of the Ignite initiative. Spark is intended to empower users to truly customize their experience, hack whatever they want to, and make their devices truly their own. For more information, I invite you to read this link .
Next, I will talk about my experience:
How to flash it on the Flame
The adventure of discovering
Let’s Start with the Flash
If you have the last version (3.0) of Firefox OS it’s okay, If you are running the 2.0 or 2.2 Version you should switch to the latest version because they aren’t using the same Base image. So to flash your flame you will need to Download the nightly Base Image before updating your phone. After the download, you just need to extract the file, put your phone in the fastboot mode and finally open your Terminal and run the flash.sh script
and after that run this command in your terminal:
sudo ./shallow_flash.sh -g/home/mermi/../gaia.zip -G/home/mermi/../b2g-41.0a1.en-US.android-arm.tar.gz .
The last thing to do to get the spark Version is to run this command in your Terminal under the gaia repository:
sudo GAIA_DISTRIBUTION_DIR=distros/spark make reset-gaia
And you will get the famous spark like me :D
Let’s Discover the New Things
First you need to enable the Developer Mode
When you open any one of this App ( Customizer, Hackerplace, Studio,..) you should follow the instructions appeared
And after the Last Enable
your phone will restart to switch to the developer Mode
** You will find all the available Application in your phone
* Here we find Apps and Add-Ons, with just one Addon Cracked**
and a Lot of other Applications like Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, Notes, Bugzilla Lite, Webmaker, BuddyUp
I really appreciate this version and I think it can be better and will be appreciated by all the people using Firefox OS. Happy hacking!
