Turns out that the Firefox OS not only works on mobile devices, but pretty much anything running an ARM CPU, including the Raspberry Pi! So, while we are waiting for the 2013 release of Firefox OS, lets take a look at how we can start tinkering with it on hardware other than a mobile phone.
Oleg Romashin, a Principal Engineer at Nokia, has been able to port the operating system on to the hardware of Raspberry Pi. Looks like the build itself is based on a stripped version of Debian Squeeze. Some of it still looks sluggish at places, but it’s still something and we are eager to see some more development for Firefox OS either on the Raspberry Pi or on some other devices.
If you are a happy owner of a Raspberry PI, or would simply like to use the package for the Raspberry Pi as a base for your own little project, you can download it here or even better, check out the whole directory for files, since it contains some code for the N9 and the Beagleboard.
