    I uploaded to the official Thai 2.0 firmware about a month ago for the Wave 2. I give it a 2/10. It really is incredible to believe that after such a long time in development it it still so full of bugs, slow camera, games and apps crashing, slower response time, volume is almost inaudible….
    I’ve tried tweaking what I can but nothing is improving very much, I still have to find a sound-proof booth to hear callers or listen to music. Oh and speaking of music, Samsung in all their wisdom have moved their music settings away from the player into the main phone settings menu. And you’ll have to download apps such as movie maker and photo effects to chop videos and play with photos because Samsung didn’t add them in, and guess what, the movie-maker app which was great in 1.2 doesn’t support the video in 2.0 for some reason…hahahahahhaha…Samsung might make nice hardware but their software is worst than the code my 8 year old daughter writes.

    These firmwares are used for the Philippine Postpaid based models. So if you bought your phone through these Network providers then update your phone.

    But if your phone is based from Samsung Philippine based models, then we still have to wait.

  7. BADA 20

    Well, finally Bada 2.0 has officially released in my country(Malaysia). I just upgraded it thru Kies this Morning. I lost all my apps as in my expectation, but I’m facing a critical problem when I want to download apps from Samsung Apps which in my mobile. When I click on “GET”, it pop up Samsung Account with a blank pages. I don’t know what to do with that, and now I’m not able to download apps from my phone as well as Kies. So what can I do now in order to solve the Samsung Account’s problem? Or any ways for me to install apps??

    After i have updated from Bada 1.2 to Bada 2.0, the Papago M7 (Malaysia and Singapore version) is not comply with Bada 2.0 and resulting the Papago M7 is not working at all. Any one got this problem ??? Can it be resolved ???

    By the way, after updated to Bada 2.0, the platform of the Bada 2.0 is running smooth and no issue…………..but certain third party’s software will not be comply with Bada 2.0 such as Papago M7 ……….

    I flashed my phone from Indian firmware DDCL2 to SEA Firmware DXLD1 and I noticed the following:

    1, DDCL2 text message conversations overlaps on the cloud box while on DXLD1 doesn’t.

    2. Language packs have change (of course.)

    3. Medium size texts of DXLD1 is much smaller than DDCL2.

    4. Crashing of Apps is minimal on DXLD1 compared to DDCL2.

    5. Browsing is still the same.

    I’ll post additional differences as soon as I noticed another,

  14. Nimesh

    Can we mix a firmware and a csc,
    for example, Malaysian firmware (S8500DXLD1) with Indian csc (S8533ODDCL2), (Then I think I can select SLK from pre-configuration., coz I’m in Sri Lanka)

    Thank you
