Firefox OS has been silently taking over some couple of Android smartphones. The OS which launched in 2014, has been very unpopular, but the guys at Mozilla have been on the edge, attempting several ways to increase its adoption rate.
Thanks to B2GDroid, an app designed by Mozilla developer Fabrice Desré. The app will let users already rocking Android on their smartphone experience in partial glory what the Firefox OS has got. Essentially, this is watered-down version of the Firefox OS experience.
In this guide, I am going to walk you through how to install Firefox OS on Android without losing sweat.
Thus far, the reception has been impressive, something Mozilla would like escalated. If you are one of those users who want to have a firsthand experience of what Firefox OS is all about, then this guide is for you.
Hint: You do not need to have a rooted device. If you have already rooted your smartphone, that’s fine.
Install Firefox OS On Android
- Download and Install B2GDroid
- Press Home key and select “Firefox OS” as the launcher.
- If this doesn’t work for you, simply go to System settings to apply the launcher.
- It’s advisable to select “Just Once” when prompted to select a launcher.
The reason why you may want to use the “Just Once” option is not to get stucked on Firefox OS. Remember, you only want to test it out, if you want to make it your default Launcher, then it’s okay to select “Always” option.
That’s about it, if you followed the guide correctly, you should be able to install Firefox OS on Android. I hope this has been of help.
