Instructions on Flashing a Daily Build

Daily builds are created from a manifest file, that contains commits from different parts of the stack. (gaia, gonk, and gecko). Our Engineering team has set up a daily repository for daily builds being built against specific devices.

Downloading a build

  • The main builds are stored daily in the FTP directory. Note: These are proprietary and cannot be distributed.
    • For directory access, please see someone from the Mozilla QA team. (tchung@mozilla.com, jammink@mozilla.com)

Pre setup

  • NOTE: Make sure the debug settings on the phone are turned on.
    • Example for Inari: Settings > Device Information > More Information > Developer

Step 1

1. Download the latest build from the Daily FTP directory. It will look like <name_date.zip> format 2. Unzip it into a folder.

 $ cd b2g-distro

Step 2

1. Hook up a b2g phone to your computer via USB 2. in command line:

 $ ./flash.sh
