Bug 1147918 <> provides
a new mach command which simplifies the setup and execution of autophone
tests. 'mach autophone' downloads (if necessary), configures, and runs
autophone, our testing framework for on-device Android testing.

To successfully run an autophone test you will need a physical device --
emulators are not yet supported -- and it must be rooted.

'mach autophone' will guide you through the steps to configure and run
tests, but there are a lot of prompts and autophone's operation can seem
cryptic to the uninitiated. Feel free to ping me on irc if you are having
