    Has anyone here successfully gotten Firefox OS to run on the Optimus Elite? I love the hardware on this phone but I don't want to use Android anymore. Firefox OS theoretically supports any phone that supports ICS / CM9.

    I got it to build but unable to get it to boot all the way. Gets far enough for logcats so that's a good sign I guess. I will try again tomorrow.

    Haven't been working on it lately but it boots just no audio but everything else looks like it works including ctr off and on animations.

    Oh that's fantastic! Perhaps you could put all the needed files together in single github repo so that I could build it for my device too? I would love to help test and iron out bugs.

    Pretty much buggy And almost everything doesn't work at all. Since the source code is still being worked on I'll wait until it becomes out of the Pre release state.
