Its been quite a long time that we got our First working Android ICS 4.0.4 by Mike, rebellos and nbates. But Wavers were left alone in the dark after that. with no network connection, android is just a pseudo operating system or a parasite which thrives on your battery and does nothing good. But we did have some ecperience with android. And we are really thankful to all the developers.
Was it a mistake to buy a samsung wave device? is it truly a Smartphone? well we all must have thought about it. Since it never did justice to the hardware. And now i don’t think Samsung even remembers Wave or Bada os.
Lately we have come to know that Mike has stopped developing for Wave for some reason. He continues to build his beloved Android 4.1 for Sony Neo V. I personally made thousands tweets to him, but none were replied back.
One of the users at Badadroid happen to email him and voila, he got a one liner reply
Mikegapinksi – “Ask Rebellos About it”
Then He happened to Ask Rebellos regarding Badadroid. and guess what, one more One liner
Rebellos – ” Wave 2 LCD driver yet to be configured”
Well those were shocking Replies. But anyways, apart from mike, people like nbates, tigrouzen and others at XDA are constantly working on SD card update. so that the android system can at least mount our external SD cards. Looking at the thread it seems they are nearing the development of SD card mounting. But still no updates regarding the Modem on wave.
The whole problem lies with Bada. The Phone will Die if we try to keep Android alone. And the ROOT cause of this is SAMSUNG. Samsung never made Bada opensource like Android. Hence the bootloaders, kernels, everything has to be rebuilt. And its not a joke to create your own operating system.
If developers are doing it, you should thank them for doing it. Since they don’t charge you for it.
Rumors are roaming around saying the next beta android version will be available for Download in the late august or september. no ETA yet and there will be no ETA.
Patience is the key to success.
