This page describes the efforts we are currently working on about porting Firefox OS on the Fairphone device.

This page is for project management, not for end-user support or code documentation.

Current project actions

To do : ignition

  • Take the FxOS/Fairphone discussion in an other place than Reps mailing list (B2G mailinglist) so porting question can get more/better attention [NicolasWeb]
  • Post something too in xda-developers: it might also be a good place to build a community around the port [NicolasWeb]
  • Contact Firefox OS Device functional team [NicolasWeb]
  • Building project tools:
    • Sumo thread [NicolasWeb]
  • Improve the general porting plan [Dietrich, NicolasWeb]
    • Curate, differentiate, merge & link in Resources the wiki & MDN pages (On Progress)

To do: Progress

  • Porting strategy: Needs, time, place & people need to be defined.
  • Porting devs: Target devs that are used to chipset Qualcom 8974.

Device targeted



Right now the best is get in touch in the irc channel #fairphone or to send an email to the project coordinator NicolasWeb.

Everybody is welcome !


Starting Point

Fairphone's blog post: We do not yet have any news about possible alternative operating systems available for the next Fairphone, but we have been hearing community interest for this and will share more news in the coming months regarding what software will ship and be supported on the device.
