Firefox OS is currently under heavy development; we are constantly working on ways to make it easier for you to use and hack on Gaia and create apps. However, you need knowledge about systems in order to do things like build the entire Firefox OS stack, or flash a phone with a build of Firefox OS. Linked below are guides meant for Web developers interested in running and making changes to Gaia or developing apps to run on Firefox OS devices.
Learn more about Firefox OS at the Mozilla Developer Network.
Follow the detailed build instructions and obtain a development build for either a mobile device, an emulator, or a desktop platform (eg. Windows, Linux, etc.)
