Our developer community at XDA is known for making operating systems work on devices they weren’t intended for, and Samsung’s Wave series of devices is no exception. Originally shipped running Samsung’s Bada OS for mid-range smartphones, the series first saw an Android port in 2011, got its first AOKP Jelly Bean ROM in June, and got CM 10 ports for both Wave and Wave II just over a month back. In the latest developments for Samsung Wave, XDA Senior Member hero355 has released not one or two, but three popular Android 4.2.1-based ROMs for the device: CM 10.1 nightly, Slim Bean, and Tsunami.
At the moment, the port is in early alpha stage, and several important features necessary to make it a daily driver such as modem, GPS, microphone, and some sensors aren’t functioning. Though WiFi, sound, accelerometer, camera, SD card, and app installation works. You can even overclock the processor to 1.2 GHz.
