b) FOTA and bootfiles:

Only 2 bootloaders are supported.

Bada 1.2


Bada 2



2. Flash the files with multiloader.(In Multiloader Just check LSI and Boot Change + Full Download are ticked and don’t tick anything else and just flash those files)

3. Copy the rom package content to root ( Main directory ) of bada user partition(411mb file system)

4. Boot to Android 4.0 ICS with the standard key combination (like on 2.2) []

5. ENJOY :)

    I have install it in my Wave, works smoothly. I can play angry bird space without problems. Just need RAM optimization apps to run the game smoothly.

    Internal space are very limited, install app2sd apps to install your apps in larger space.

    Tested apps:

    Drag racing
    Angry Bird Space
    overclocking apps
    MX Player

    Problems with this build:
    screen callibration (problems with keyboard and certain games)
    microphone (using skype can voice call and video call but because of microphone not working, the recipient cannot hear you.)

    this is the first time i am going to dual boot with android. where can i find complete instructions on installing 4.0. i have s8500 with xxkf2 bada 1.2 thanx…

  3. jimmy

    All d best
    thanks in advance..

    All d best

    1. Roy

      press & hold call button & end call button for 5 second. Few second after that badadroid logo will appear.

      Make sure that the file below are in the phone before boot into android.


  4. hi

    hi . thanks alot \
    pls correct modem and usb otg and ram management problem on this project for s8500 wave to make android fully functional with its all features working on s8500 with dual boot feature for bada 2 original firmware
    thanks a lot to Mike Gapinski,Rebellos, Nlbates. !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. mushi

    hi all
    i could manage to boot into android….
    i done everything rite.
    flash the boot files n then fota files.
    after that copied everything into internal drive of phone…
    after that what should i do…?????

    1. metalrar

      is easy mushi use FOTA and bootfiles Flash the files with multiloader as tutorial says, Copy the rom package on Phone Memory, not in SD memory, turn off wave, press & hold call button & end call button like 5 or 7 sec, and w8it, is gonna take a while every time when badadroid logo appears, and enjoy,

      PS: i’m using turko v5, if you flash only FOTA, the phone will restart every time at bada logo, you need to flash FOTA + BOOT file, to make your bada run over again

  6. ice

    how can I flash bootfile without ticking the bootchange option??

    Please describe more clearly, how to installed


  7. mushi

    hi devolper…
    i know this version is very smooth n awsoom….but is there a way to install it on sd card…???
    if yes then how..????

    because although android version is fast n smooth but with internal memory almost full the bada version does not run very smooth anymore….

  8. ice

    Why the keyboard is not very stable, every letter in the left side is very hard to put. Did anyone have this problem?

      1. Dk

        try rotating your phone other wise, like the hardware button (menu, end call and call keys) shud be on your left side

        then there is no problem in typing

  9. metalrar

    this is more like an alpha version, but is more than i expected, please, do not worry about any kind of bug on this rom, Dev’s will fix on next updates, we just need to wait a proper beta, so… stay tuned from several updates from now

    tell me if i’m not wrong, but this kick ass rom is way better than android 2.2 gb xD

      1. TrooperFX

        for hacked apk files you download from pc, set from android to mass storrage and put files there. download from google play filemanager and look at that app where you have copied your apk files

    1. metalrar

      DK can you please post a video of Developer Options on settings like i.e:

      USB debugging
      stay awake
      allow mock location
      HDCP checking
      desktop backup password
      strict mode enabled
      pointer location
      show touches
      show screen updates
      show CPU usage
      Force GPU rendering
      window animation scale
      Don’t keep activities
      Background process limit
      Show all ANRs

      like pros and cons of having them enabled or disabled,
      if you can’t make it, can someone else explain it please??

    1. metalrar

      yes all version are supported, remember FOTA+boot files like DK’s Video

      no needed for me, xD but thanks anyway DK

      those who like install apps from SD (not google Play store) install first a file manager.apk from playstore, now you can install apps directly from your SD card, using the file manager

  11. mushi

    try pressing vol
    up+menu+call end
    same thing happnd with me aswel…now my android some times boot on those keys and some time on call+call end keys.

  12. Bala

    I cant see anything like My files in this ICS…?? so not able to access my memory card…
    It’s yet to be added or i am the only one with this problem..?

    1. mushi

      bala you can access your memory just connect your phone to computer and then on your phone selenct mass storage on after that you will see on computer the drive of android now copy anything you want in it including apps….later you can acces them with any file manager inside android. os.
      but you cant access your bada drives in android.
      android has 578 mb of sd card memory to use……you cant acces your origional sd card in android.
      now since its an alpha version so maybe develpor do some thing about it….. :)

  13. Cristian

    Great job guys! I hope to soon have a fully functional beta version The only problem is observed with the keyboard, are a little outdated keys and it is impossible to type the letter “a” for example.

    1. mushi

      well yup thats a problem but its not the keyboard problem its just that left side of the phone is faulty on touch so to typing just use auto rotate and rotate your phone horizantly to type anything……this works for me :)

  14. Enco

    waiting for the release for wave 2..
    to devs,,
    Pls dont hesitate to finish the project,, many of us were rili waiting for this port to be a success, I think all users of wave 1&2 would love to have android on their handset since bada is dying day by day.
    Thank you for this awesome porting!

  15. Jeetu

    well, I am thinking to try this method on my wave 2…can anyone tell me does it work or not?? and doing this wont do any damage to bada??

  16. derpiederp

    How do you get into the task manager?
    it is much smoother than expected, so compliments!
    the keyboard issue is quite annoying, how can this be fixed?

  17. suso

  19. medo

  20. Davenick

    WORKS….JUST AWESOME!!! Jus Get the remaining stuff working…and I am willing to ditch my new One V for the bada Droid!!! AWESOME WORK GUYS…KEEP IT GOIN!!!

  21. sandy

    hi guyz excellent work now i can see the real power of android with the same hardware. comparing fruit ninja in bada is a bit slow but in ics its like butter. however is there any way the internal storage can be increased bcoz even after moving apps to sd card still the apps use some internal storage hence decreasing it with each new app installed.

    thanks in advance

  22. TATA

    When will be the next version to be release?Does the person who doing this have a blog or something else to update us about the process?Can’t wait to see what will be done in the next version, good Job!!

  23. TATA

    i have follow the instruction properly. after flash and copy all the 4 files into phone memory, i tried to boot to badadroid by press and holding call+call end key. but what i get is it still boot to bada instead of badadroid. anyone is facing the same problem?any idea about how to solve this issue? im using bada 2.0

  24. twoYien

    my country doesn’t support downloading from Deposit Files…
    it’s been block…
    can you upload an alternative LInk for me…
    i’ve been following you to complete your project for so long already…
    and now i still can’t try it myself…

  25. Shubham Gupta

    THanks developers for providing ICS 4.0 on wase-s8500.
    But the only concern that I have is that as one cannot make/recieve calls or msgs.Changing the OS just for the sake of playing Angry Birds and some other games which surely are fun is still a lot to ask for..

  26. Trek
