Hi Nora,

I had tried to boot the image download from this site. But it doesn’t show up. I only got one red rectangle on the screen but nothing. The sdcard is created by dd and PhoenixCard. Only the one created by PhoenixCard gives us red rectangle. The one created by dd gives us nothing. Any idea about this?

Hi Nora,

I got it. I forgot to change an option. It works now.

And just like that Firefox is obsolete again made promises and didn’t make it happen, these boards are beat until y’all (the manufacturer ) figures out how to do software

Tru tru. ARM processors are not known to be compatible with a lot of the Linux distros.

Hi, sorry if it’s not related with the post but, where did you find the touchscreen? I’m so interested to build some similar with Firefox OS and I can see you got it.
