Android 4.1 jelly bean samsung wave

Yes guys you have heard me right

We will have jelly bean on samsung wave 1. Which means we will be having the Project Butter running on our Wave devices.

Project butter aims at having a smoother user interface without any lag. It will also be powered with Google Now and the ultimate voice search engine ever.

Wave 2 users good news you will be directly getting Jelly bean. Patience is always rewarded. i hope wave 2 users will be really happy. A direct Jump to Jelly bean with really smooth Android and devs have promised a port on wave 2 smartphone as well.

Have a look at his last post from mike gapinski the developer who happens to be on a holiday

jelly bean post

Please be patient and let the developers work around it.

    • Dk

      after 24th july

  • kikolo

    i hope this means that they installed drivers for mic

  • kikolo

    Are they going to make it full flash so that we can delete bada and have more memory?

    • Dk

      no it will be dual boot and it will still be a beta release

  • sandy

    Like the project FROYO FROZE I just pray transforming BADA to BUTTER doesn’t find its way to GUTTER.

    • sand

      i like it :)

  • kikolo

    if you have ics on your wave you should go to settings->about then tap quickly couple of times on android version and see what happens ;)

  • sandy

    Hats off to your hardwork guyz

  • hellgate

    hey guys, my wave(8500)s display just destroyed last week without any major hit, it was in my pocket, the way i was using it from the last 1.5 years……as per my plan, tomorrow i going to repair it and then i am going sell it. no more bada…. going for ANDROID(GALAXY S2)…… but this project making me confuse !!!!!!!!!!!! Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Butter IN OUR WAVE!!!!!!

    • Dk

      yup! =) jelly bean is coming wch eve galaxy s2 hasnt got

  • TrooperFX

    i knew this 3 days ago.

    but what about undervolted cpu??

    does that mean the phone will run at maybe 900MHz?? instead of 1000MHz??

    i hope its able to overclock.

    i want 1300MHz

    • Dk

      the voltage has no relation to overclocking and the clockcycle of the cpu

      undervotaging wont decrease the speed
      dun wrry
      it will remain to 1Ghz

  • evoospeed

    where is wave 3 again ohoo i’m realy tired those waves are old now we need android on our new waves 3

    • TrooperFX

      mike will only make for wave 1 and 2. sorry for that

  • Jeetu

    Good work Devs…we were waiting for this day since one year…hope u come up with jelly bean on wave 2 soon…all the best :)

  • Crazy

    I have a question (im french) and i follow this website on 8 month ago maybe (badadownload) and is the best nice work …..
    my question=> can we swicht to the kernel siyah to overclock at 1.6 ghz? with the release ICS 4.04

    • Dk

      overclocking wave to 1.6 ghz will lead to a smoky(firey) samsungw ave
      it will become super hot and die soon
      plz dnt overclock it above 1.2 ghz

      • TrooperFX

        1.3 is max

        i tried that. phone screen gets a bit hot, just like the ipad 3, but works great

  • jalallrockin

    • Dk

    it doesn’t matter any more ics or Jelly Bean or even android 4.5 ,without working modem its useless,2 years from the beginning of android port without no success to make the modem work so it doesn’t matter anymore accept that rubbish bada os or buy android phone ,it’s as simple as that

    • Dk

      this project has been a great leap to samsung badadroid project

      modems are on their way
      no one know we ,may have a perfectly wrking android tomo

      plz think postive

      • Phantom

        positive lol with bada no thanks ,i have been with bada from the beginning nearly 2 and half years now and i give up on this damn os and dreamy projects like these ..just remember my words and we will see very soon who was right..write modem drive is nearly impossible thing for one developer what about volunteer non-expert developer haha just dont dream too much my friend

    • Dk

      we all did a big mistake by buying wave phones running bada os
      so we are wrking around it
      and yes im not wrking on this port

      so i cant say when you guys can really enjoy android

      here is the order
      after 24th july
      WAVE 1 – S8500 will get jelly bean
      WAVE 2 – S8530 will also get jelly bean (nt sure though)
      WAVE 3 – No one is wrking on WAVE 3 currently

      but il request sum1 to start wrking on wave 3

      till then follow my blog here >>
      follow youtube channel >>

      • TrooperFX


        i didn’t buy the wave 1 by mistake..

        i could choose the galaxy mini galaxy gio, the wave 1, or a htc

        the galaxy’s where bad, small screen
        the htc is ugly

        wave was also good of his 5 mp cam

        • Dk

          yup no one can beat wave’s camera
          NO ONE in this whole damn Smartphone MARKET

          but BAda killed it ;’(

    • Soumya

      i jst dnt understand y wave 3 users want unofficial android on their ph, wen samsung will provide official tizen updates(which will run android applications, thnx 2 ACL) to dem…wave 3 is probably d only wave series ph 2 get tizen and bada will get merged with tizen

      so i understand the need for wave 1 and 2 users to get nt wave 3 users…

  • Bala

    Love u Guys.. :D
    And Fuk this BADA…!!!!! :(

  • harsha

    it will support on samsung wave 3 s8600 pls help

    • harsha

      Hi DK, can you tell how much time will it take for coming android to wave 3…????????????????
      pls help meeeeeeeeeeeeee

      • Dk

        seriousy no idea

        read above i wrote a long message – comment no #51

        • harsha

          k thank”S DK,
          Androidi is supporting wave 1 and 2,
          android can support wave3 or not
          iam using wave3 since 6mnths iam not intresting mobile wave 3 is not support iwill go to android……………

  • Alkalinorap

    Hi DK, how this may also go to the Wave II when Mike said that if Samsung did not provide a Wave II he would not check the Wave II LCD drivers?

    • Dk

      yaa its true
      how can he wrk if he doesnt get a wave 2 device

      he may get wave 2 soon to wrk on
      plz wait

      • Alkalinorap

        But then you do not know whether it will for Wave II because maybe Mike does not get a Wave II

  • catalin

    I said it before and I say it now: you all are a bunch of loosers! buying wave phones and after that praying some guy to port android on them! how lame

    • Dk

      so now go and purchase a new phone rich ass

  • Alkalinorap

    It was a present, I didn’t buy it.
    And loser you.

  • Sandeep

    Why cant we have a standalone android. why is there a need for Dual boot.

    • Dk

      its in beta stage and cannot be put as standalone until and unless the devs know the modems and write down new ones

      writing down modem drivers is like hell
      if u can make modem driver, u can make ur own operating system
      its dat difficult

  • Sean

    Hey DK !
    in Jelly Bean there is modem with (calls,3G,message)?

    • Dk

      no, not yet

  • TrooperFX

    Why we don’t get it??

    we bought the wave because there wasn’t any better phone (otherwise a bit expensive)

    and the wave 2 + android would cost in a store about 300 euro, with bada 210 euro

    so that is the power of porting android on bada phone

  • azam

    a question to dk or ny1

    can they make the modem workin???????yes or no???????
    if no, i dnt hav to waste my time w8in for sumthing that will not happen….
    if yes, keep fingers crossed.

    • Alkalinorap

      I think the modem have to write Rebellos, and ultimately is a very bad mood on XDA and he has said it may never make the drivers … I hope he calms down and do it.

    • Dk

      making a modem driver is as big as creating your own operating system

      and you expect it in 1 night
      sir please it will take time
      all we can do is wait and have faith

  • shubham deswhal

    Dear Dk,

    I need your help, I’ve wave 2 and I’m so tired because wave 2 getting hangs problem.I’m taking the point. I need android jelly bean. Everybody knows Android still strong in the market. And android hasn’t hangs problem. Please ‘Dk’ keep flowing this project.

  • michael

    So far, none of the attempts of porting Android on Wave has succeeded. Not even Android 2.1…None. Zero.

    I won’t believe it until I see it.

  • ANAZ

    will call?and message.this are not working ,this project is flop

  • guru

    • TrooperFX

      tizen os is better than bada, because you can install bada and android apps

  • TrooperFX

    look here:

    see the features of 4.1 vs 4.0.4??
    we have same features like 4.1 The call screen is same, the menu is same.

    the ICS is other.

    but the settings of our phone says that we have 4.0.4

    • Dk

      Trooper :P

      4.1 and 4.0.4 are same in looks mate
      they have introduced project butter in it
      so the performance is smooth
      we are having ICS and not jelly bean

    so instead of workin to make new versions i request them to work on modem.

  • swapna

    please do android for wave 3 please ,

  • dilip55

    I don’t know why people here crying for Android OS on Bada phone,they can simply go & buy Android phone.The price offered by Bada phone is much lesser than the Android phone with similar features.You guys want to get more paying less.though it’s not a sin.

    I am using both bada(wave2) and Android(s2) and I can say Bada 2 and Android are almost similar ,even certain features of Bada are more pleasant than Android.Customers often express discontent about the lesser number of apps in Bada but actually we store not more than 20-30 apps in a Phone & Bada2 has a number of great apps of which Turbo fly is one of the best.Yes Android has all kind of apps in it’s store but bada also has sufficient number of good apps.Looks wise & performance wise Wave2 is best,watching video & listening music in Wave 2 is a great experience & camera is much better than S2. I will never port Bada to Android.

    • mko

      but there are still people who don’t have enough money for a galaxy s2. wave2 is waaaaaay cheaper. when we got our phones (mother, sister and me) , my mother and my sister bought galaxy s for 100€ (with a ‘contract’) and i didn’t pay anything for my wave 2! and now they both can’t use their galaxy s anymore, because it’s so extremly laggy!
      we only want android on our phones, not buy new ones.
      and i will donate to mikegapinski if he finishs his work.

  • likhit

    dilip55 u dnt port let us do tht….u use ur s2 man

  • sandy

    hey dilip gift me a s2

  • dilip55

    I wish if I could gift my S2 but be satisfied with what you have,after coming to Android you will probably like to go elsewhere.Keeping in mind the price of the device Wave2 & 3 are extremely lucrative.

  • sandy

    @ dilip

    if i can install ubuntu or (numerous versions of linux) on a windows running pc then why not android on a device running bada.


  • swapna

    bada and android are both similar then give me ur s2 k .
    I will give my wave 3

  • dilip55

    I have Wave 2 already dear!!!!!!!

  • sandy

    if you already have 2 then make it 3

    • Soumya

      if u wanna sell a wave 3….u r a fool…. am also a wave 3 user… for us wave 3 users ders 1 big boon…..Application Compatibility Layer(ACL) provided by OpenMobile….which will allow tizen devices to run Android apps…..amongst d wave series phnes only wave 3 will get the update when d bada tizen merger take place…..dis was confirmed by a Sammobile representative

      the following link proves d bada tizen merger

      Min rquirement for tizen: 1GHz and 512mb ram, which amongst d wave series ph, only wave 3 meets…..

  • faran

    bada is very good because it has many good apps like asphalt,N.O.V.A,assassion and also sims 3 but i want android because i never use it wave 1 is my first phone

  • faran

    thankyou all people who are making android for samsung wave s8500

  • faran

    DK please tell me can we will be able to download all android apps

  • sandy


    yes buddy u r right we all losers bcoz we will b losing bada soon.

    howz that!!!

  • catalin

    good for you:)
    you realise that badadroid will never be like android! bada 1.2 is way better than any android(badadroid) made by mike and his buddy’s! so why bother waiting android to come on wave?!
    plus->bada 2 has many similar features with android and coming…

  • sandy

    @ catalin

    have u ported or used ics on wave. when you do you will realize that the only thing missing is modem and some tuning otherwise it beats bada os any day. whether it is playing games or support for large no of apps.

    I never experienced the level of internet browsing on bada i did on ics be it opera or dolphin hd. I opened 19 webpages at a time in opera for which it will crash 4 times on bada. when i played fruitninja on badadroid i never felt the fluency in touch for the same game in bada. Ther’s lot more to tell but just let it complete.

  • faran

    did wifi will work in this android

  • faran

    can anybody here me

  • faran

    can we play games like max payne in this android version

  • raj

  • dilip55

    Can anybody tell here when the next version of Bada will be released & when we will get Wave4?

  • sandy

    ha ha ha…

  • David Worland

    If you port a fully working jelly Bean on the Wave, you will become the God of the porting!!

  • sandy

    if you have so much negativity better suit ur self to a photographers dark room

  • faran

    can we will be able to use wifi in this android

  • dilip55

    It’s not possible to get all the features of Android working perfectly alright on Bada,it can hamper the performance of the device.What’s the need of having a faulty Android over perfectly alright Bada?

  • abcd

    “purchasing failed due to an error. please try again later.[1]” This problem is occurring when i try to purchase a game from kies.
    What does it mean? Please help if somebody knows about this problem.

  • Qwerty

    can i only run android on my wave 1 with no BADA,
    will i be able to do the basic things like making calls,messaging and sending/receiving data (bluetooth) + wifi+ internet+ video and audio player…thats it..

  • Ashik

    Will all software of Android support on wave after upgrading Jelly Bean?

  • Bharat

    I have Wave II but have upgraded it to BADA 2.0, so can i get Jelly bean in this?

  • agentp

    is anyone working on the modem yet?
    Plz say yes!

  • mahmoud hassaan

    it’s 23 now please guys are we close i’m working with bada and android booting but it sucks i wish mike had finished jelly bean it’s really great but with out sd card or modem it’s useless i use the booted android just for apps . thank’s developers for good working.

  • Doh

    @ #139,

    Rebellos has been working on modem driver for 2 years.

    And for all the rest… If you bought any kind of wave phone in the last two years, you could have known Bada OS didn’t support any “fancy” apps, like skype, whatsapp and tons of games by doing a simple google search.

    I have the original Wave and I still love it. Even after two years it still works perfectly. I really appreciate the hard work from the devs like Rebellos, Nbates and the rest. And if or when they have another update for us, they will give it when it’s ready. They are helping us with their hard work (in their spare time). So please stop whining.
