The Geeksphone team has released new stable roms for both Keon and Peak : http://forum.geeksphone.com/index.php?topic=5207.0
Last time, I only tried to update Gaia, so now is the perfect occasion to load a full disk image including Gonk and Gecko, the bottom layers of Firefox OS.
The instructions are pretty basic. The Remote Debugging option has to be activated in the phone and drivers have to be installed.
The Peak image is about 100Mb zipped and contains its own copy of adb and fastboot along a boot.img, a system.img and a userdata.img.
Here are the handful of commands embed in the flash.sh :
#!/bin/bash adb reboot bootloader fastboot flash boot boot.img fastboot flash userdata userdata.img fastboot flash system system.img fastboot erase cache fastboot reboot
I ran into an insufficient permissions for device error. Doing an adb devices confirms that the problem is real :
List of devices attached ???????????? no permissions
As usual with permission issues of any sort, a powerful sudo is often the cure.
sudo adb kill-server sudo adb devices * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * List of devices attached 424242424242 device
After executing flash.sh, the phone rebooted to the bootloader screen (the one you control with the volume buttons), but the process got stuck to < waiting for device >
To pass this blocking message I had to turn fastboot into an executable with a chmod +x and type all the above commands with sudo like this :
chmod +x fastboot sudo ./fastboot flash boot boot.img sending 'boot' (4232 KB)... OKAY [ 0.357s] writing 'boot'... OKAY [ 0.768s] finished. total time: 1.125s
The all operation lasted about 2 minutes. The resolution issue is now fixed and only the public apps are available.
In the Device information settings panel, the Software is stil mentionned as Boot2Gecko 184.108.40.206-prerelease. Platform version 18.0, Build Identifier 20130418124521 and Git commit info 44915e.
I was expecting something more recent, because I believed this is the exact same build than the one preinstalled on the phone when I received it.
Next step, lurk on the forum to find new images made by the community!
