Its been more than a month now and only samsung wave 1(GT-S8500) users have tasted the android on their smartphones. Well for the namesake its a smartphone lol.
Jokes apart. Badadroid is a serious project and no one is joking around especially when it comes to “No android for wave 2/3” and all.
Till now the progress is just not noticeable where we left at Android ICS 4.0.4 and Slim ICS rom. The developer mikegapinksi happens to be out for vacations almost like for lifetime now. No updates from him yet.
Some say he is working on Sony ericcson Neo v, walkman live and other mobile phones. Wave is also apparently a part of his routine.
So all we can do is wait for him to come with an update which he has stopped for a while now. Last we heard from him was that he was working on Android jelly bean and the lcd driver for wave 2 to work with his polish blood ics build.
One of our fans of badadroid page named Govind Krishnan happened to ask Oleg_k the creator of lcd driver of wave 2. Here is what he replied.
i still don’t understand why he removed the uneccsary part. but here it is
Rejoice WAVE 3 users.
Apparently wave 2 has disappeared from the news lately. no developer has updaed anything about wave 2. i feel wave 2 is on its way. You might like to check out this XDA thread for news about wave 1/wave2 here
Surely for now we cant say anything, really anything about Android’s future on wave. Samsung has made all wave users orphans with no choice left. Either trade your wave or wait for android port. Many have already traded their wave smartphones for an Android device.
Today an update appeared from one of the developers, Rebellos on XDA.
SD Card handling has been fixed.
Big kudos goes to volk204 for pointing out proper change and nbates66 for testing out all my weird stuff.
Here’s prebuilt kernel for S8500: http://d-h.st/cgg
I can proudly announce that all major kernel bugs unrelated to modem are fixed.
Well that zimage is being tested by me now and i will let you guys know if it works well with the current android ICS on samsung wave 1 S8500
That’s all folks. From my side. please be patient and donot panic. Wait for a the developers to relaese.
P.S “please donot flood post asking when will we get android. there is no ETA and there will be no ETA. No specific dates are specified. So please please please wait. im here to update everyone around here.
