CM10 Lands on the Samsung Wave I and Wave II

Now onto something different, but not quite different: our mandatory serving of news coming from the pseudo forgotten areas of XDA. No, we are not talking about Off-Topic General, but rather the section for the infamous Samsung Wave and Wave II. Due to the ever increasing popularity of Google’s Android OS, other smaller players essentially fall short in terms of expectations and support. Development costs become a financial burden, as opposed to a profitable venture. This was the case with Samsung’s own BadaOS. So, what is the next best thing you can do if you have a device running this? Flash Android on top of it.

The latter part of that statement is not a simple feat by any means, particularly due to the OS not being designed to work on the hardware. Having said that, when you have people like XDA Elite Recognized Developer Rebellos on task, you know that there is now a chance to get much needed support for the device. In this particular case, Rebellos was able to port CM10 onto the Wave and Wave II. However, the initial version is nowhere near daily driver status. In fact, radio connectivity is non functional, the battery gauge is broken, and according to the dev, the experience is rather slow. All in all, this is an alpha stage build.

Please leave some feedback for the dev and remember to back anything important up if you are going to dive into this.

 So once again it’s time. Introducing the first alpha development preview of CyanogenMod 10 (based on Jelly Bean) for the Samsung Wave.
This preview is intended only for developers as it is in a very early development stage and not all features of the device are fully working.
