Wave and Wave II Get Functional OmniROM!

Samsung Wave II

Running Android on a device that was never supposed to support the OS is quite a challenge. But even when you’ve got that part working, those last ten percent is often the most challenging. This has been exactly the case for the BadaDroid project, which aims to bring Android to Bada (a lesser known OS released by Samsung for their Wave series, for which development stopped in 2013 after it was replaced by its successor, Tizen). We’ve actually seen the project develop slowly over the last two years, and it’s always great to see it progressing further.

OmniROM is the latest member of the family of ROMs available for the Wave and Wave II, and it’s also the most usable to date, brought to you by X. . . READ ON »

Android on Bada Now More Functional than Ever

BadaDroid

BadaDroidBada is a somewhat lesser known OS released by Samsung alongside with their Wave series in late 2009. Eventually, this operating system was dropped from active development in 2013 and replaced by Tizen. Relatively quickly, developers realized that they could put another OS onto Wave devices, but porting a different OS is an extremely difficult and time-consuming task, as almost all drivers needs to be rewritten. But this is XDA, and the term impossible is clearly not available in our dictionary.

A few months ago, we covered a major step forward in bringing up Android to Samsung Wave devices. Now, the project named BadaDroid is even more functional thanks to work done by XDA Senior Member volk204 and Elite Re. . . READ ON »

The Android on Bada Project Takes a Huge Step Forward

android-happy

Shoehorning an operating system onto a device that it was never intended for is an incredibly difficult, time consuming, and often frustrating process. However these types of projects are exactly what XDA-Developers is all about, and the people behind them are the very reason this site exists. The BadaDroid project—which aims to bring a fully functional version of Android to Samsung’s Wave series, devices that originally shipped with the relatively low profile Bada OS—and the driving force behind the project, XDA Elite Recognized Developer Rebellos, are first class examples of this.

The last time we brought you news of the BadaDroid project was to talk about a build that could be . . . READ ON »

CM10 Lands on the Samsung Wave I and Wave II

Install-Android-On-Wave-2

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 t. . . READ ON »

Do You Have A Wave(Droid) And Would Like to Overclock It? Here Is How…

wav2OC

Well, it looks like development on the Samsung Wave is paying off rather nicely. In case, you haven’t been following the Bada scene, developers have successfully ported Android 2.2 (Froyo) and slapped it on top of Samsung’s proprietory OS in a project called Wavedroid. Well, now that Android is fully functional, tweaking efforts are underway. In this particular case, XDA member ispanecaaaa showed us how to overclock the device to about 1.6 GHz. Most of you Android users will be familiar with this process as it is done with setCPU. However, for this to work properly, a different image must be installed than the original wavedroid one. Also, you need root due to SetCPU being utilized. People have . . . READ ON »

The UnBrickable Mod and Beyond

UARTonCaptivate

A bricked phone.  No JTAG.  Modify hardware, upload a bootloader, and the phone lives.  Pure development.

That’s what I think of the work of AdamOutler and Rebellos to breathe life into dead devices.  A couple days ago, WillVerduzco wrote an article on Rebellos’ method of unbricking Hummingbird devices by uploading your very own custom bootloader to your device.  A couple weeks ago, AdamOutler asked for help getting the official Samsung bootloader for Galaxy devices.  Since then, the two teamed up to put Rebellos’ Resurrection Bootloader on devices modified according to AdamOutler’s UnBrickable Mod.

Now they’re finding the fun doesn’t stop at unbr. . . READ ON »

Fix Found for Samsung Wave Camera Problem

wave

Upon flashing new firmware to their Bada-running Samsung devices, some users were disappointed to find that their cameras would no longer work at all. Luckily, however, user bangalorerohan has found a method that seems to fix this problem completely.

Using an application called sTunes to re-flash the original drivers for the Samsung Wave’s camera, it appears that it is possible to regain full use of the feature. Users have reported that it may work with both the Wave I and II although it’s important to remember that the files are flashed at the owner’s risk.

Detailed instructions, along with links to the required files, are available in the fix thread.. . . READ ON »
