n00b frequently asked questions
1. wifi not working??
a. so this is the frequently asked question....you will mostly get an error "obtaining ip address" this is a glitch in the ROM so to fix this you have to go to the network settings/wifi settings then in the wifi settings press the down volume button a menu will come up tap on advanced then enable the check on static ip and then fill out all the fields down below thats it now go back by pressing the end call button and then turn off the wifi and turn it on back again thats it your wifi works
2. market error ....apps do not install ?
a. that is surely a CHMOD error now what you have to do is start Ubuntu open a terminal ..in the first field type "cd /media" and hit enter
then "ls" and hit enter (it is a small L and not an I)
then type "cd your ext2 partition name" and hit enter then
type "chmod -R 0777 ./*"
and after this type "sudo sync"
and then unmount the drives by going into "Computer" and press the eject button on the left side panel
lets get started
first you have to have XXJL2 or XXJK1
in windows open multiloader 5.62 click full download
and then choose the bootfiles and the fota file (link given)
enter the download mode on your phone by turning off the phone completely and then pressing the volume down button+hold button+the power button after entering the download mode connect the phone through the usb cable and then clicking port search on the multiloader and then clicking download
after the process is done the the wave will reboot into bada successfully if it does not boot in bada successfully it means you have done something.....so do it correctly
then collect all your android data in a folder and put it somewhere ............ so it can be accessible by ubuntu
then take your phone format your memory card in bada
login as a ubuntu root user
pm me if you want to know how to login as root user
then open gparted partition utility in ubuntu browse to your memory card in gparted delete the fat partition on the memory card and assuming you have a 2gb card make 2 partitions first should be a fat16 partition of 1100 mb and the second partition should be ext3 of 900 mb .
remember to give a name to ext3 partition ...the only reason is that it solves alot of problems
then open badadroid.tgz file in archive manager and then in the file open filesystem.tgz and then open the contents on filesystem folder in the archive manager and then select all the folders and extract all of the contents to the ext3 partition through the archive manager not manually!!!
then after it is done copy the keypad file and paste it into ext3/sytem/usr/keyalyout/
overwrite the existing file
(optional steps:- if you want other customization files download the zip from this;)
go to your wave internel memory make a new folder "galaxyboot"
and then copy the sbl.bin and the zImage to the folder
after you have done all this
open a terminal first type
"ls" it is small L not and I then
"cd(space)your ext3 partition name"
then "chmod -R 0777 ./* "
then after the mod type "sudo sync"
after all this unmount the partitions
dont unplug the cable
just turn it off with the cable connected
after the phone is switched off
after all this process you might notice that the phone is heated up to fix this take out the battery and let the phone cool for 5 mins and then insert the battery close the cover
and press the end call key and after a minisecond press the call key
after you see a messed up screen with green line
let go off the buttons
the first boot might take around 20 mins for slower cards like class 2 or some class 4 cards and 10 mins for faster cards!
and voila ANDROID ON YOUR PHONE
