Samsung Wave I (GT-S8500) & Wave II (GT-S8530)
Alpha 0.1 Release
“Seriously, Don’t Try To Sell This… You’ll Really, REALLY Regret It” Edition
This is develpoed by Rebellos

So once again it’s time. Introducing the first alpha development preview of CyanogenMod 10 (based on Jelly Bean) for the Samsung Wave.
This preview is intended only for developers as it is in a very early development stage and not all features of the device are fully working.



This firmware version BadaDroid – 0.1 (based on Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and CyanogenMod 10 ).
What works in this version:
– Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, (Bluetooth only works on the S8500)
– Micro SD (memory card)
– Touchscreen (display)
– Music, sound and vibration
– HD games with the cache (for example GTA 3 and NFS MW )
– The main and front cameras (photo and video)
– The correct battery level
– Brightness adjustment
– Accelerometer and LED flash
– Recovery (creating and restoring backup firmware via ROM Manager) For the first time in this release (ported from SGS, especially for this Release)

– earned advanced settings

– support TVout

– mDNIe setting

– setting color display

– the camera button

– the button should work HOME

What does not work:

– Modem (calls, SMS, mobile internet)

– GPS, compass

– Microphone

– Lock Screen ( phone is switched off – the problem is only in 8530)

– Charge your phone on Android is still not recommended


Instruction updated per 0.06 release and newer! Do not use releases older than 0.06.
Bada 2.0 is required

  1. Enter Bada Settings->General->Memory and make sure you have at least:
    • 370MB of free “System” memory
    • 150MB of free “User” memory
    • 400MB of free “Applications” memory
  2. Download 3 packagesBOOTFILESarmlinux_boot and selected release for your device (please pay attention if it’s S8500 or S8530 BOOTFILES and FOTA you’re choosing!):
  3. Start Bada.
  4. Extract zImage from zip and copy it to the Bada’s User partition (the one about 390MB big).
  5. Copy whole .zip to the Bada’s User partition.
  6. Flash BOOTFILES and FOTA using Multiloader.
    If you have been already using my FOTA bootloaders, you don’t need to flash BOOTFILES.
  7. Reboot the phone holding Power and Call key.
    FOTA set of red messages should appear, after about 15seconds Badadroid logo shows up.
  8. Be patient, first bootup will keep unresponsible on Badadroid logo for up to 5 minutes.
  9. CWM Recovery starts, pick:
    – install zip from sdcard
    – choose zip from sdcard
    – cm-10-wave-<release id>.zip
    – Yes – install
  10. Reboot holding the Power key

You can remove installation .zip from the User partition from Android level by connecting through USB in MTP mode.
Do not remove zImage file and modem directory.
Normal bootup is available using Power+Call keys
CWM Recovery mode is available using Power+Volume Up keys
CWM Flashing does overwrite zImage. So every next update you can just flash .zip through CWM.

Follow the steps there:…&postcount=393 (thanks Volk204)

  13. ricky

    For developers. Please guys i am fed up using these unstable and phone risky android roms. It’s a sincere request please can anyone create a fully stable and working Android 4.0 or 4.1 or 4.2 rom with a fully stable and working zimage for samsung wave 2 GT-S8530. I’m ready to pay them about 1000 Rs or a bit more. If anyone is willing to do the job please contact me on this number 9049574808. Trust me about the money thing if i don’t pay i’ll hand u my wave 2.
    please developers i’m damn fed up using bada because of limited apps and games.

  14. Syam

    To developers : Please Please first think about Modem and then about stability.. Without these 2 things its not worth of giving a try of Android on Wave.. I tired of these Pre or Alpha..

  15. Shivam Anand

    What if our fw is not the turbo cfw one i mean; in my wave ii fw there is no partition as such in the phone memory so how can i copy the things in the specific folders in the phone memory?

    Or is it neccessary to have that turbo fw only ? :(

    please help

  16. Disappointed Bada User

    Really GREATTTT work guyz…hatzz off to the developers… Gud luck with getting the modem working….nd ThanX for This Update….

    1. USER

      thank you :) it was very helpful. i think this rom is still not very good and the most inportant thing is still not solved fro samsung wave 2. – The Lockscreen- cause maybe you want to use only android and the lock doesnt work -.-

  17. SamsungLover

    Allright, here you go again, pissing me off. Now, motherfucker, listen to me very carefully. AND I MEAN FUCKING CAREFULLY!! Ever heard about Samsung GT-S8000. Hmm?? No?? Well that was the phone the fucking awesome blackforest group ported the android to. That was way before the stupid ass wave porting.

    Now, here is the important part, you piece of shit! THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO HAVE THE 3G, CALL and CAMERA, WORKING EVER!!! IT has been like years and years and they have failed consistently. You understand that motherfucker!! ANDROID WILL NEVER WORK TOTALLY ON WAVE OR ANY OTHER FUCKING BADA PHONE!!! Then, why create a fuss bitch. Buy an low end android, it is 10 times better that the high end bada phone

    PS. I hate bada and android equally. Have used both thats why, So, no need to think i am an android lover. thats just google shit man.

    You all fucking stupid ass morons keep waiting foreever for android porting, where the devs will keep asking for donations and then have you ass fucked with the same money, with a half ass working android port. Y’all are dumbasses man. seriously. Go bite an apple, that is much better.

  18. gts8500

    believe it or not buh the guy above me^ is absolutely right!! those who are waiting fo full android are just gettin there hpes too high and the ppl who are donating…wel no offence buh ur thick as fuck theyl jus keep takin ur money and keep releasing alphas with MINOR tweaks each release e.g. lockscreen, no lags etc buh major work like moden IS NEVER GOING TO WORK!! the devs may be good buh cmon get real lads. i gt wave 1 and bada ok…wots sso bad bout it? jus missin a few apps buh if u really need android and ur on the verge of death den seriously sell ur wave (bout £40-50) add a feww more notes an get a decent android…ur wasting ur life waitin fo android on wave

  19. rithwiq
