    Wow! The part starting at 1:30 is interesting to me: that’s FirefoxOS! As FirefoxOS is built for light weight hardware, it could be ideal for the Raspi. Android 4.x is too heavy for the Raspi’s 256MB RAM, isn’t it?

    Furthermore:

    That’s also my understanding that Firefox OS is more suited to low-end hardware than Android 4.0.

    If you look at his Linkedin page, you’ll see that he works on browsers for Nokia, including the Mozilla gecko engine.

    Tips how to get it working on Raspbian armhf? I get the error below, but the file does exist…

    pi@raspberrypi ~/kul/b2g $ ./b2g

    @Sander
    I haven’t tried it, I’m playing with CX-01 for a few days now. I don’t know how to check whether a binary is armel or armhf.

    But while searching for “Couldn’t load XPCOM”, I found some people simply had to set export LD_LIBRARY_PATH= correctly.

    I got it working on a Raspi with the Debian Wheezy Beta image, not with the Raspbian image.
