Its out and ready to install have at it!
its even slower than the leaked version i used to have installed
I am unable to install fennec.apk file on.my samsung captivate. Do I need to root?
heres the post from mozilla themselves since it isnt on the market yet id guess u have to be rooted and be able to sideload.
Fennec Alpha Released for Android and Nokia N900 :: The Mozilla Blog
File seems corrupt as I am rooted with sideload enabled and it won't open in either astro or root explorer. I even added the .apk extension to it.
More info here. Looks like its not quiet ready for our processor
Guys, in order to download this one, you need to browse using the phone and click on the download link. Instead of getting a .install file, you'll be redirected to a mirror and the apk will be downloaded on the phone. Since I don't have an app installer, I then connected the phone to the pc via usb, then did an adb pull /sdcard/downloads/fennec.apk into the pc and then adb install fennec.apk. It will error out if you already have it installed, so make sure you uninstall it first.
i downloaded via phone, moved from phone to dropbox. On pc from drop box to folder. then used side load wonder machine to install it..
Any vids of it in action?
I installed it, but it didn't work well. Turning the phone to landscape orientation crashed it, and it's slow as Christmas. Sadly, it's still not ready for prime time. I do like its general interface, though, and I'm looking forward to a version that works.
i want this to work badly too but its an ALPHA release - so its far away from ready for prime time. my advice is to skip it for now...
I have it installed and it works pretty decent. It will freeze and lock up of and on, but its getting there, I bet once froyo hits itll be a champ with it.
It has some pretty neat ideas. The Weave Sync will be awesome. It seems to work on my phone. I get FC's about every other minute. It's basically unusable at the moment for me.
