Just when I though I had to clone back my blog and set it up again, it so happened that I have a backup on my PC. Yey! I can write a blog post! This time, it's a quick guide on setting up a FirefoxOS phone for hacking. For this post, I'll be on Windows and the victim is a Cherry Mobile Ace. So hang tight, this will be a quickie!
C:\Users\[username]\.android\adb_usb.ini, append on a new line
0x1782. This is the hardware ID of the handset. The file
adb_usb.inimight not exist in
.android. If so, just create it.
Settings -> Display -> Screen timeout
Settings -> Screen lock -> Lock screen
Settings -> Device Information -> More Information -> Developer Settings
WIN + Rand type
In the cmd, type
adb devices. If your device was detected by your PC, the result should be:
List of devices attached xxxxxxxx device
Open Firefox Aurora, and press
SHIFT+F8 to open WebIDE
Project -> New App.
Originally there was this blog post which was the only guide I found. It was misleading at first, thinking that it was just a review of the phone. At the bottom of the post was a link to the driver and setup information. Unfortunately, the driver won't install on Windows 8. I once VM'ed the setup on XP but this wasn't a healthy routine, both for development and my machine.
Making the phone do some intensive stuff. Spoiler: I won't be rooting the devices or modifying the ROM (though I'm really itching to do so). This is so that I'm sure it would work on the devices out of the box.
