By | March 20, 2013

Well we have seen cyanogenmod, AOKP, MIUI and Paranoid Android. But are these enough? No, is the answer for pico users. Xda’s Recognized Developer cute_prince has done an exceptional job by releasing Firefox OS B2G for pico users. This is not android, it’s something else. It is the first release for now and therefore has some major bugs such as sim card not being detected, no keys working except the home button, etc but these will surely be fixed sooner or later. Firefox OS B2G is really an out of the box ROM and you will surely enjoy using it. So, what are you waiting for? Here are the screenshots, bugs and the flashing instructions.
