How to Change Boot Image on Wave 1 and Wave 2 [Tutorial by Dk]

wave boot image by dk

Hi guys, i have created this tutorial so that you can change the boot image of our wave smartphones. Bored with the same old Samsung wave boot image? spice it up with your own image.

You will need the following things to start with it.

1)    Wave Remaker

2)    A 480×800 Bitmap image (24bit or 16bit)

3)    Rsrc2 (low) file from your firmware files you downloaded for bada 2.0



Here are the steps.

1)    Get the Rsrc2(low) file from your bunch of firmware files of bada 2.0.

2)    Start Wavemaker software

3)    Select the second tab “ .Rc2 View “

4)    Now drag your Rcsrc2(low) file to the left side pane of wave remaker.

5)    Click on Imgae>Open image

6)    Now select the 480X800 sized bitmap image you have

7)    With the first file still selected click on Image> Change Image

8)    Go to File>Save File As>Debug Level=0

9)    Now it will pop the window asking for a name so give the original name which it had before. For example I have wave 1 S8500 so its name was “Rsrc2_S8500(Low).rc2”

10)  Open Multiloader, then just select rsrc2 tab and select the rsrc2 file you modified.

11)  Port search> Download.

Enjoy the new Boot Image

  • Taxidriver05

    Sorry…! Is there really a need for a tutorial?
    Changing the boot image is really simple for everyone, who can handle with WR…
    Who can’t, shouldn’t touch boot image… ;)

    • Dk

      Not everyone is a pro here
      they need a good tutorial
      so if you know it already
      good for you

      • Taxidriver05

        Sorry… It shouldn’t seem aggressive to you…
        But I ask myself…
        If anybody does not really know that you can modify this, will he be willing to change this screen.
        And those who knows about, will know it…

        It’s not about the Tut… It’s good… But i don’t know if it is really necessary…

  • TrooperFX

    how did you get it so high quality??

    when im converting the png to bmp with photoshop or online converter, it gets grey stripes at wave remaker. but when i convert with paint, it works, but the quality is very low with fade/vintage

    Very good. I managed to do the installation. You that being an image in the real value of 480×800, or else he/she doesn’t enter.
    I speak that, why made my own image. I thought it was legal, since I am not professional in the subject.
    He/she would like to know how to show in the site.
    Congratulations for the wonderful work that you do here.
    Excuse English because I am Brazilian. I am using a translator.
