[HACK] Customizing Bada OS


Hi all, using TkFileExplorer 2.4 you can see and edit Bada system files, in this thread I will report all usefull changes I will find and you could perform using this tool

If you find something other, you might write it here so we have all them collected in the same place

How to use TkFileExplorer:

-Connect your wave to PC with usb cable;

-Select USB Debug connection;

-Start TkFileExplorer and clic Connect;

-if the program fails to connect, try changing the COM port number in Settings;

-Make a backup of the files you change;

-…and try at your own risk!

    Hello! Great site, thanks for sharing knolege and apps with us!
    I really like my Wave 1. I have onlu one problem with it. It keeps restarting because of the “press end call key for 10 sec to reset” feature. Any way to get rid of that using an app, like this one? Had to disable PIN because of this…Thanks
