I've contacted their support about this problem.
Last time I did they fixed the issue.

No, is a sharing place between Geeksphone and his users.

Thanks.

OK, but what state is this problem?, think continue to support these devices?, I mean the daily builds?

Yes, from Geeksphone after few years the support of the Keon and the Peak has come to end.

But we hope than users community want to continue.

Thanks.

Thanks to Geeksphone for supporting those phones for quite some time - even if unfortunately the path has apparently led Geeksphone in a different direction than Firefox OS. At least for now.

That said, GP got so many things right (unlocked! updates! in-development builds! crash reporting! symbols!) that so many other FxOS phones got wrong, it was really refreshing to see that it can work. Thanks for that.

Some hints on how to build the Peak images from source would be great.

Helmar.

Well, looks like we'll have to go our own way...

Ok, I tried to build my own image in v2.1 (that's what I'm using right now). Building finished ok but image is 140M instead of 190M (last provided by geeksphone) and when the phone reboots, it gets stuck at Geeksphone logo.

Does anyone knows how to debug boot via adb to see where does the system fails.

I followed manual here https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Building_and_installing_Firefox_OS
using peak manifest for version 2.1 (I attach the file).
I'm using ArchLinux.

If anyone has an idea on what to do, you're welcome.

best,

I have sideloaded boot.img as indicated in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Building_and_installing_Firefox_OS/Firefox_OS_build_process_summary

and phone boots ok. So the problem is system.img for sure...

I'll try to post what I have done exactly and see if we can create a how-to so anyone can build its own image.

You can find image and md5sum here:
http://jordicerdan.com/b2g/boot.img
http://jordicerdan.com/b2g/md5sum.txt

I'll try to rebuild again...

ok,

I managed to finally build a system 3.0.0-prerelease
I warn you that after building everything I launched ./flash.sh and it erased my userdata (that's really a shit, but anyway, I'll rebuild everythin again from SD)

I'm currently using it, and I see plenty of mochi test and test apps on homescreen... will investigate WTF is that and try to hide/delete them.
Also it's only available in english and two other non-latin languages I don't remember. Keyboards are available in more languages, I'll try to find how to solve that also...

Anyway, if you want to try, I have uploaded all *.img there www.jordicerdan.com, as well as md5sum.txt:
- boot.img
- userdata.img
- system.img
- md5sum.txt

Finally, I think that you could use flash.sh provided by geeksphone, as this script asks you if you want to delete user data, but if this does not work, I also upload the flash.sh file I used provided by Mozilla.

WARNING: Use this files at your own risk. When my files failed, I always could go back flashing files provided by Geeksphone on April 7th, but that does not mean you will can (or yes?)

I upload you some images of the new system...

Sorry for this monologue.

Please If someone can/wants/dares to try my images, please, tell me what's ok, wrong, etc... and this way we'll have all a build steps to g on firefoxos and peak.

I'll try by the way to do a doc about all I have done.

best,
