.: iP-3G GAIA - B2G port :.
« on: September 29, 2012, 06:45:15 PM »
Until Admins conclude will (or not) make new child board for this, I will just wrote here  :)
Why here? Because this project is closely connected with android.
So, as You mostly know , GAIA is user interface for B2G (boot to gecko) or to citate wiki: "is a collection of web apps which make up the UI for the Boot to Gecko project."
Point of this porting is to help GPL projects to live happy with more than few devices, and I was decide (sure,for Myself) to port it on iPhone 3G.
Why 3G? Well, as I have an 3G for playing with and baseband chip is mostly dead, this device is ideal for that manner.
Anything about it, You can find on official page: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Main_Page

If anybody is interested to have something new (well, maybe old as it is pretty close to android) please be free to post.
As I cannot attach here files, will provide link to it if will be interested people.
Cheers

Ever since I read about Mozilla's Firefox OS(B2G), I became interested in porting it. I am glad that I am not the only one who had the same idea.

OK, to not just typing here... Here is link: https://github.com/fergy/android-device-ipt1G.git so please be free to get it and add contents of android-device-ipt1G into Your B2G/device/apple/ipt1G folder. Note that You must to make both new folders under /device (apple and inside ipt1G, so path look like: YOUR_WORKING_FOLDER/B2G/device/apple/ipt1G and than copy contents inside ipt1G).
Also feel free to change parameters for device as I don't have an ipt to test if it work at all.
For Kernel, if You don't have own one (You can use kernel from iDroid for this) let Me know and I'll make one for You.
PS, You need to put kernel inside ipt1G folder too (or rework script, so it not use this one).
Good luck

I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but I think you mean that you have already started porting it and you are looking for my help. To answer your question no, I have not started porting B2G to the iPod Touch. I might start next weekend.

I mean following: I have ported it to iphone 3G already . Cannot test on ipod as don't have it, so I can provide (in this situation) help for B2G patch code if You will need it.
Let Me know if You need anything.
Cheers

If you could try to fix it up for the iPod as much as you think you need to then compile and send it to me, that would be much appreciated because I currently do not have a Linux workspace. I only have windows. Thanks in advance.

OK. I'll probably make it by Sunday evening.
PS, why You don't use virtualbox or something for Linux if don't have (or don't want to use) place for Linux?

OK, here is short brief if somebody want to build it on it own:

Step #1->clone repository:
Code: [Select]
git clone https://github.com/fergy/B2G-1.git
Step #2->cd into cloned repo folder:
Code: [Select]
cd B2G-1
Step #3->configure build for device:
Code: [Select]
./config.sh ipt1Gor
Code: [Select]
./config.sh iphone3G
NOTE: if You enter just ./config.sh, that will give You device names. In this moment only iphone3G and ipt1G can be builded

Step #4->Get an book and cup of coffee as first pull will take some longer time (depend of Your internet speed)

Step #5->Build B2G
Code: [Select]
./build.sh
NOTE: depend of Your system speed, this step can vary. For example, on an Acer B1 dual core processor it take:
Quote
real   102m5.133s
user   148m7.880s
sys   10m30.476s

Step #6->Copy files to device
* by default all files are placed under B2G-1/out/target/product/ipXXX
* files what You need are following: boot.img, kernel, ramdisk.img, system.img and userdata.img
* for now, openiBoot is 'AS IS' so it will look for files under idroid folder on Your device (same place where original idroid was placed)
* kernel file is just zImage, so You can rename it back to zImage before or after....or just copy Your own zImage from Linux kernel
* ramdisk.img also must be gzip-ed until I change kernel, as by default it will search for compressed ramdisk image

Step #7->Reboot device
* choose idroid from openIboot and enjoy in B2G  :P
