Yesterday, Android builds started showing up on Tinderbox and they were green!
There are incremental builds triggered by checkins during the day, full clobber builds run every night and all builds available on ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile. If you have an Android phone, and want to help, you can download these nightly builds and try them out. Note: we still do not have nightly updates for Android figured out, so for now you have to remember to come back and re-download a newer nightly build to see newer fixes.
The curious can follow the rest of the Android mechanics work in bug#538524 as it is rolled out to production in digestible chunks – unittests, talos, and release-build-automation are some highlights still being worked on.
It is exciting to see support for this new OS roll into production. Please send encouragement/chocolate/beer to Bear, Armen, Coop, Aki, Vlad and MichaelWu for the tons of behind the scenes work they did to make this happen.

Any plans to add these builds to http://nightly.mozilla.org yet?
Yep, all the new OS need to get added – OSX10.6 64bit, maemo4 and android. Its being worked on…stay tuned…
Here is a QR code for the latest [Android nightly build on] trunk:
Excellent point – I’d completely not thought about using these QR codes to simplify life for users trying to download.
Similarly, the QR barcode for the URL to maemo4 build is:
I’ll see if we can get these QR codes added to nightly.mozilla.org also. Thanks for the great suggestion!
Thanks and take care
