Anybody interested in porting Android on this cool device? I am sure some of us, wave 3 owners, will help as much as needed.

This thread should have been posted in the "Android Development on Bada" section.
For the moment no project for this device started but there is a short thread about this in progress :

I guess this thread is right where it needs to be. I don't like spamming development sections with useless questions like mine . You have to agree with me on this one.

But i would like to gather up a gang of wave 3 owners, here, on the general section, and maybe we could start something... you know, strength is in number. And donations too.

I would love to help but i own a Wave 3 now, my Wave 1 is long gone.
Anyway, i would love to try and test the android project for wave 1 and 2 on wave 3. Maybe, with the help of some samsung galaxy roms, we could get it started on wave 3 too. The problem still remains the gsm and 3g.

Hey ruwin if u really want android why didn't u go for some android after selling ur previous wave. There are many android handsets in the same range as wave 3 and almost similar hardware. Why did u choose wave 3 if u want android ?

Don't get me wrong, i love my wave, and if there will be android on wave i would use it (at most) in dual boot only for some apps i need. The thing that i am going for is OPTION. Plus, you have to admit, this build quality (wave 3) is hard to find in the android world.

From another pov:
Are you not able to understand that this is a developing and modding forum? This means that it is the right place to post about modding/porting android for wave. Now i am starting to understand why bada developers are leaving the bada community. And it seems that i am encouraged to do so too...

Did they released it in USA? If not - you won't find enough devs for that work.

You are right. ..but Android section is much better to ask.

Start with compiling right FOTA for S8600...
Read here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...highlight=fota

"We", this means mijoma , made few Examples to test work of FOTA...
See Video:

Btw...
Quote:

you can help them. Disassemble wave, make same macro photo of PCB and send it them.



But maybe MUCH smarter is to collect first all documents... for S8600.
Like this:

No need to destroy working S8600 as step 1.

I started this thread here because I don't agree with spamming developer sections. I move to the developer section as soon as i get the service documentation for wave 3. I have a friend who works at a partner service and I hope we can get the service manual. meanwhile I will try to get my hands on a broken wave 3 to shoot some macros. or if safe, I will open mine.
