Samsung start bada 2.0 updates over KIES.

 

Today, Samsung has begun in Poland and Hungary to the first bada 2.0 firmware officially distributed via Kies.

The firmware for the Wave 1 is the S8500XXKL6/S8500OXAKL6 (ProductCode XEO) and S8500XXKL6/S8500OXDKL2 (ProductCode XEH).

So Samsung has maintained at least the promise of the 4th Quarter of 2011 to publish updates. When the update will be available in Germany an other regions is not yet known. 
It’s quite possible that there will still be the case in January.

    hi guys
    i hav downloaded firmwares (DDKB2)&(DDKF1) from this site but i couldnt find the FOTA file in it.. so tell me guys wat should i do,,is ther any method that we dont have to use fota file
    help me guys wat should i do
    thanks

    1. carloud

      hello sir….if you have set to find the other files before the fota file

      it should be available once you click on the “fota” in the multiloader hehehe

      also got confused by this as I thought the files I downloaded didnt contain fota files too ^^

      so in short…we cannot detect the fota file by our windows browser, multiloader detects it though if you click it in multiloader ^^

    can anyone tell me how to remove the “E” (e-gprs) icon fr0m the above notifications …………?
    is it possible ?
    i think that’s the main reason for draining of battery !!!

    Samsung apps will probably crush if you look at the pictures on an app.
    Google suggest is annoying like hell, it flickers all the time, and remembers you after each letter that you lost your wifi connection (you can turn it off)
    You no longer have virtual keyboard or fit to screen options on Java thus Opera is not useable.
    In the music player there is no way to use the equalizer, you have to minimalize it and go to settings/music player
    I played Sandstorm it seemed a lot smoother than on 1.2 didn’t drain battery.
    You can also play music with musicplayer while playing.
    Flash usually requires too mutch memory thus browser closes, you can turn on disable advertisements (witch is disabled by default) to save a lots of memory

    hey guys … the Wave 3 stocks arrived in my city only yesterday, and today i went and bought one, and gifted myself the latest Wave on the first day of the new year !

    the phone is a looker. absolute beauty. the 1.4 GHz heart makes it run fast too. the screen looked a lil less bright than original Wave ( till now i had wave 1 which i am replacing with this, and so cud directly compare everything ) and also the phone is lighter than the Wave 1 !

    but … but .. but … the OS is already breaking my heart. its performance can be termed ‘much better’ than the beta i am running on my wave 1, but i have a sinking feeling it is definitely not a finished product.
    the scrolling stutters … the phone hung up once during a call within first 5 minutes of it being bought, and just recently restarted as i exited the official facebook app !

    i am sure they released this unfinished os to meet time line, and the idea is to complete it later on through updates.

    though the phone is awesome, and a must buy if build quality and looks of a device are important to u !
    i will happily wait for updates all the while enjoying this new eye candy ! :)

    happy new year comrades !

    Yes! I finally made it! I’m using official Bada 2.0 S8500XXKL6/S8500OXAKL6 (XEO).

    Here’s my instruction:

    1. Download bada 2.0 beta KL6 fw. http://www.multiupload.com/X60LRIF54D (for S8500)

    2. Flash it using Multiloader v5.65.

    3. After successfully flashing it, connect to kies. You’ll see to it that kies will prompt you that your device doesn’t support fw update. (Don’t worry!)

    4. Input this code: *#5239870*#

    5. Then select “Pre-Configuration”

    6. Then input *#27236*# and confirm. Select XEO.

    7. Wait for the installation and your phone will restart.

    8. Again, connect to kies. You’ll see to it that kies will prompt you “This is the latest Firmware”.

    Back up your contacts and messages before doing this! Thanks Samsung! I just accidentally made it. All I thought that I made a mistake in changing tne CSC Pre-Configuration. Hope this will also apply to S8530! Happy New Year guys! =)

    1. kiran

      hey thankxx man i did it….in kies it shows this is the latest fw…:D
      thank u 1ce again…
      a new year gift….:D

    2. allanm

      Thanx Don but rather than doing this long procedure u can just do it in one shot


      Just type thin in dialer screen *#272*CURRENT_TIME#

      i.e if it 5:30PM we need to type *#272*1730#

      Thats is select XEH XEZ OR XEO

      voila it shows Latest Firmware Installed

      PS: Check on WAVE II S8530 :)

      NJoy

      sir Don How’s the performance of the phone using bada 2.0? and is it stable?…I have my wave 2, I want to know if you know somebody who tried it in wave2? thanks.

  7. dondeepiccio

    No need to remove. When you’re flashing, it wont affect your sim card and memory card.

    @don hey bro help naman on how to flash my s8500 1.2 to 2.0. my firmware is dxkf1 through kies. naka network lock on pa sya by tomorow ipa open line ko sya. plsssssss help on how to make it bada 2.0 :(

    1. dondeepiccio

      follow mu lang bro yung instruction ko. Dati rin kc eh dxkf1 yung fw ko taz nagflash ako sa kk5, then flash to kk7. then flash back ulit sa kk5 kc daming prob sa kk7. Tapos eh nung nabalitaan ko na out na ang bada 2.0 eh nagdowngrade ako to dxkf1 pero madugo ang process. So nagflash na lang ako ng KL6. Then after using KL6 for 2 days eh nagtry ako i-change ang csc preconfig ko from KOR to XEO (kc nga beta lng ang KL6 na gamit ko so sinubukan ko if magwork). But then I found out when I connected to kies eh nagpromt ang kies ng “This is the latest firmware”!

  9. jokomz

    @dondeepiccio & d rest thanks I did it my firmware is in latest edition now. after that my phone language was set to polski i think its from poland & i restarted it again to set the phone language to english & it works.
    i lost my apps i downloaded in my mem card thanks to kies I recover it & installed it back..
    my original firmware was DXJf2 i flashed it with kk5 & to KL6. Manual flashing is my best option because i can’t update it thru kies. And finally thanks again to dondeepiccio for his discovery for d config.
    Hapi new Yr everyone =)

  10. maynard_spil

  12. DarkStar

    Hello! Is bada 2.0 official or still beta i see many people speak that is official and some beta what is it? It is available on kies or not?

    1. jokomz

      some countries like poland & hungary in europe has already official firmware released from samsung.. other countries will follow.. if u cannot wait the official then go for beta it has the same features with the official firmware coz its source was from poland european countries.. but do it in your own risk. its up to you..

      1. kenorsom

        No countries have the official Bada 2.0, it’s all just a dream, Poland didn’t get it and Hungary didn’t get it. Somebody started a rumour and all the sheep started bleating.
        Bada 2.0 has not been released, Samsung ( pricks ) have not announced when or even if anymore they will be releasing 2.0 update for Wave 1 and 2.
        All we can do is moan, whine, complain, hope, wish,petition etc, but none of these will have any bearing on what Samsung does.

  13. stryder

    Of course its official (but only for open market devices, not for branded from networks), Samsung Poland confirmed it today @ their facebook and twitter accounts.

      Install a new set of drivers for your phone or uninstall Samsung kies again.

    6. Then input *#27236*# and confirm. Select XEO.

    7. Wait for the installation and your phone will restart.

    8. Again, connect to kies. You’ll see to it that kies will prompt you “This is the latest Firmware”.

    Back up your contacts and messages before doing this! Thanks Samsung! I just accidentally made it. All I thought that I made a mistake in changing tne CSC Pre-Configuration. Hope this will also apply to S8530.
