Need to review those WIP bugs. (SteveLee (talk))

Problems flashing

I'm having trouble flashing my flatfish after a build per the instructions here. I'm running in an Ubuntu 13.10 VM in Parallels on a Mac, which I've used to make working B2G builds for ZTE Open and Nexus 4 in the past.

'adb devices' shows the Flatfish device, then running './' reboots it -- the device sticks on the 'Firefox OS Contribution Program' boot screen and the terminal sits on '<waiting for device>'.

The device's name in the USB devices sharing list in Parallels also switches from "Flatfish' to 'High Tech Computer - Vendor Specific' during this time, which seems odd.

Rebooting the device boots back up to the version of Firefox OS that it shipped with, with no apparent changes.

Any ideas? Thanks! --Brion Vibber (talk) 10:43, 16 May 2014 (PDT)

Brion - you should raise the issue over on discourse TCP where we discuss things. The wiki is for distill wisdom rather than ongoing discussions so can you move the above over to there too? SteveLee (talk)

I got a build working today, had to add a second line to my udev rules in the Linux VM:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"
It seems the boot loader reports a different vendor ID from the tablet when it's booted up! --Brion Vibber (talk) 08:21, 24 June 2014 (PDT)
