    • ashrules24 says:

      The recent update which I have posted was for Wave II. JDK is simple to download. Click on http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk-7u3-download-1501626.html

      and download the JDK for windows 64bit.
      Then you need to create a class path.

      Follow the steps below:

      1) after downloading the JDK and installing it
      2) right click on the My Computer symbol and then go to properties.
      3) their below you will find “Environment……… ”
      4) Click on that….
      5) Now open the Java folder which would probably be in your C:\Program Files\ Java\
      6) Now click on the lib folder
      7) copy the path on the address bar above.
      8) paste this path in the environment variables… New path….
      9) you can name it anything you want.
      10) once again click on new path and paste the same path but replace the lib to bin (in the path)
      1!) name it whatever you want to.
      12) Done. your JDK is installed.

      did you try the other UPDATED method that I have posted ???

  9. hey.. i tried ur updated method … but the problem is … when i give google usb driver to the system, it says it has found most updated driver … so i dont know wheteher it is taking the driver or not. Then when i start unroot.. no pop up appears…. i feel the major reason behind this is that i dont have the zimage file in my phone which i can replace… can u help me on that

    • ashrules24 says:

      Pushkar: The zImage is not the problem. Actually the problem is you are Rooting your phone for the first time hence you aren’t able to find the zimage.

      I will be uploading the Polish Blood firmware and few more.. ( they are for wave1) but still methods are same.
      You can copy the Polish Blood as you wanted from the Firmware later.

      And don’t worry, “Patience is Virtue” :P

  10. man tried all things… i have the polish blood files … but nothing is working … only wave 1 can be rooted … not wave 2…. its killing me man…

  11. Riki Nir says:

    Actually, theres a major differences from the hardware and software(as it opensource technically), it depends from the countries it’s released. I have Wave II, having the same problems. I cannot find zImage on my Wave II, I`m using STune to find it, but none on results.

    • ashrules24 says:

      To find the zImage you need to do the Android rooting as it is shown in the video.
      zImage is only created when there a prior Android rooting is done in the phone.

  12. hey ashrules … i tried a lot but can u plz explain me the rooting procedure….I did the following things tell me where did i go wrong…

    FIrst I downloaded the firmware u provided for wave II… hero555 it says…
    Then I flashed my phone with this firmware. it got installed … only prob i faced during this was when I gave it a path for CSC… there were many files and I gave it the Asia one…Then the phone got configured and started…

    Then I tried to find zImage to be replaced but it was nowhere in the phone… still I continued …

    When I connected my phone it showed Hero 555 and when i clicked it … there were three folders
    1. IntSys 2. Osp 3. Phone

    I pasted the zImage in phone folder.

    I started Unroot tool…. and clicked on root. It did not show my device ( as mentioned in the guide of tool) It flashed a msg to install the driver… i clicked on yes… but no use .. it kept on flashing the same msg …

    Then I tried to follow ur another procedure…I downloaded Google USB driver… Then I went to device manager and my mobile was listed under USB controllers… when i tried to update the driver software it says already updated driver installed. so no use

    Then i tried to follow the procedure in ur video… i followed the link from video description and downloaded Polish blood files… copy pasted them in Phone folder and tried to root my device… no use … it keeps on flashing the msg to install the driver…

    Man plz help … i tried a lot but nothing worked…

    • ashrules24 says:

      Everything that you have done is right, but you are missing one major point….. The zImage.
      The zImage is only found when you have flashed your phone earlier for Android, as shown in the video(for wave 1)
      For wave II you have the similar process.
      Remember… zImage is important.
      2) If you do not find the zImage then you will not be able to modify the Bada Wave to an Android Wave.

  13. sorry one small change… the device it shows is Honda 355

  14. again sorry its Hero 355

  15. please provide ics 4.0.4 for wave 2…. the file you have provided is a custom firmware for wave 2… i need the ics 4.0.4 for wave 2…

  16. Layth Saleem says:

    i hav installed the firmware u provided fr wave 2 … when it started … it showed bada 2.0 n i cannot find the zimage on my phone… i tried to root it as it is.. but when it asksed to install driver and i clicked ok… it did nothing and just asked again 2-3 times to install driver…
    but i have 32bit plz …. elp me
    my email is (laythalhaj@yahoo.com)

    • ashrules24 says:

      @Layth Saleem: Check the comments that I have posted above. You need to flash your phone with Android before doing all that I have mentioned… That will create the zImage in your phone.

  17. Does the Android 4.0 works on Wave 2?

  18. waver90 says:

    Hey! Im new to rooting and I have wave 1 and I want to run android on it. i just wanted to confirm the steps before i screw up my beloved cell! :D
    1) Copy and replace the given “zImage” in your phone memory with this one here
    2) Use the Unlock Root tool to root your wave
    3) Download Unlock Root tool from above link and install it.
    4) Connect your Android on Samsung Wave to your PC and make sure the USB debugging is switched on.

    6) It will ask to install a driver, click on install driver anyway , it should be the second option (in Win
    7) Wait for root to complete and Done

    Are these the only steps or do i need to follow the next steps mentioned for 64 bit too? mine is vista running on 32 bit.

  19. One question,and thanks for your answer :D, ehm how i can replace the zimage and what is the zimage?

  20. could you please give me a way to do all right..i am from germandy and i can english,russian and german,it would be very beautiful if you could post the way how to find te zImage and so on…

    i have flashed the turko v6 firmware and bada 2 works good but i cant boot android,i cant understand how to do this right…

    • ashrules24 says:

      There is a link named Polish Blood. Try Flashing that. (remember… I will not be responsible nor will the site or the sources, for any kinda damage.) But still try flashing Polish blood and paste the zImage in your phone memory. Just Paste it. Watch the video. It must give you a clear idea of flashing.

  21. HI ! I’m a starter so this is getting quite confusing for me… Do I need to use this CFW in order to install Android or is it pre-installed into the Rom ? Really appreciate any help… My phone is Wave 2 – Bada 2.0 anyway !

  22. Can you give me the link for the polish blood for Wave 2 and the Link for the video,plese?

  23. ok thanks i know how to do that but what happen when i flsh ththe bootfiles and the other files of wave 1 to wave 2?

  24. can i try it for my wave 2???

  25. yabusa says:

    Got a question ;)

    I seem not to be able to run the program to root since I am not able to instal the “driver”
    I followed your update steps and it didnt work.

    Is there a way to do this under linux instead off Windows?

  26. Sagar Padol says:

    hey i have got wave 2 s8530 .i want to askthatcani instal android onmy wave 2.pls if yes tel me waht to do.illbe very helpful to u.

  27. Your video seems to be down and I’m afraid the instructions leave me a bit confused.

    I’m using Windows 7 x64 and a Samsung Wave II, Bada 2.0.

    Where do I actually use the android firmware that i downloaded?
    The process for rooting seems straightforward, but not having rooted my phone before I dont know how I’m supposed to get that zImage.

    What am I missing?

  28. Dinesh Nagda says:

    hello…can anyone please tell whether or not this ICS can be ported to wave 2?
    lot of talks happned but no one tells if it is working on wave 2 or not…….

  29. Dinesh Nagda says:

    but how? is the LCD driver issue sorted out for wave 2?

  30. thomass001 says:

  36. hey man,
    i have done everything what u have said . every thing worked but if i tried to update driver it is saying that it is up to date n when i continued with this in unroot it is repeatedly asking install driver….. please tell me a way.

    • ashrules24 says:

      Update driver !! Your phone always checks the flashed version of the driver…. Not the updated version.. To update the driver you need to Flash your phone once again with the updated driver !

  37. an other doubt we need to copy the zimage file to phone memory .but to which part intsys or osp or phone and which folder kindly tell me man

  38. In the above discussion you have said that zimage is only created when android is flashed . what do you mean the cfw firmware for wave 2 right is any other thing to be flashed just tell me please. Actually i understood the problem i need to know how to flash my phone for android

  39. please upload your video once again or upload it to any other sharing websites n post the link i didnt even seen it once please help me

  41. Finally i found the video. but when i tried to flash the boot file and fota file it is showing error stating that it cannot able to erase . please tell me a solution

  42. The only problem with this now is the fota file . when i try to flash it dbl erase error is occurring. please post fota file for wave 2.

    • ashrules24 says:

      There is no problem with the FOTA file…. Cross check all the steps and the files once….before your erase or flash.
      (coz I will not be responsible for any damage occurred to your phone)

  43. i will tell what i have done so far.
    1. i flashed the cfw firmware given.
    2.then i downloaded sdk n installed google driver

    i gave up following the porting project earlier this summer, and what a bad timing to stop following!

    what I’m trying to find out now, is if i flash my device(s8500), will the modem work? and can I dualboot? ( from videos it look like it). If this is the case, i wont wait 2 minutes to test this out!

    oh, yeah, will google play (appstore) work?

    I gotta hand it to you, if you have pulled this one off! anyways you have done a great piece of work!

  62. chak30 says:

    I have wave II. Windows 7 64 bit.
    I tried your UPDATED method to root wave II. Here are the steps i followed :

    1. Downloaded android SDK and installed Google usb drivers by clicking “install 1 package”
    2. Device manager > right click samsung wave II drivers and tried to install manually.

    But no matter which path i follow to install google Usb driver for wave II, i get an error “The folder you specified doesn’t contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with windows for x64 based systems”

    Again, the driver folder has both x86 and x64 bit drivers.

    What should i do to install android usb driver? Could you explain me the steps you did and tell me where am i missing?

  63. are you sure this guide work on wave 2 ?? I try step by step on windows 8 64bit and windows xp 32bit but usb driver downloaded by sdk manager is useless for wave 2 and windows cannot install it . itry to force install by have disk method (full manual) but windows reject it … I think this method for wave hacking is absoulutly for wave 1

  77. @ashrules24 – can you provide the procedure of flashing the provided firmware over Wave II ? You say everywhere that you need to flash the phone with Android but I don’t see the procedure anywhere. It will be helpful if you can provide the same,

  78. plz help i wanna kno how to flash my device coz i can find zimage in my phone now wat to do

    • ashrules24 says:

      Hello peeps: Firstly Completely flash your phone with Polish Blood files(Series 1) Which will create the zimage. Then try flashing the…….. Android with the above provided steps. I must say, the Polish blood files and the Android are now a days very rarely patching up………Due to piracy rules and regulations of the App Store and Google. If lucky you will have a clean Android Flash with very little lagging apps. Even though it worked for me… I have undone my Android and flashed Original Wave II back… Coz original is always original. I suggest you to buy an Android phone as I have now.

      Thts it from my side. Thank you. Keep visiting #mobilegameroids


  79. Gautham Raj says:

    i have install android on wave 2 but screen lock is not working !! pls me out!!

  80. Hey I have heard that there are some consequences after installing android in wave 2 like not working of usb,wifi n so on …Is it true??

  81. Rahul Yadav says:

    is it ics android version and does it supports google play and its appss.
    can we make phone call and use gprs
    can all mobile functions be used as a new and normal model

  82. Hey if i root my phone using the above method.! Will the apps and normal calling functions and messaging will work ? I just want to know what all things don’t work if i install this version of android.

    • ashrules24 says:

      Hi Deepanker Kumeria,

      The Android Root is not so stable. Many have downloaded and they have succeeded but there are others too who have not succeeded in the Root. That is because, we are rooting a mobile which is not in Google’s List. Hence the support is not there.

      I suggest you to try on your own risk (if you want to) but there are other BADA themes and firmwares which can make your phone look beautiful.

      Thank You.


  83. Will it work on Wave 2 pro? (wave 533)

  84. hi im at the last steps that i had to follow but it seems that i can not root my Samsung wave 2 it said ”
    16:50:38 – Starting ADB Server..
    16:50:44 – ADB Device: NOT FOUND

    ERROR: Make sure your device is connected in Android Debug mode, and the drivers are installed. then try again.” what do i do now? please help me to get it rite tanx!!!!

    • ashrules24 says:

      As I have been posting it from long back Quentin, this root is not so stable. IT sometimes shows up and sometimes does not. So to save your phone… Its better to take a precaution by not doing any flash or root by any Android. Let BADA be there in the phone.

  85. will this procedure work on windows 8 (64bit)?

  86. hey dude can you tell me if that trick will work on wave 3 or not?
    will i be able to get android on it???

  87. hey ashrules i have wave 1 and i rooted it successfully but when i connect sim(voda) no any network occurs if it problem has any solution help me…..plz..thanks…….

    • ashrules24 says:

      There is no issue with the Network. Rather, there could be a issue while flashing your phone. The firmware might not have the correct booting files. Try flashing with another firmware. Hope it helps.

  88. how much RAM is provide for android apps?
