i know this user manual
AND....maybe i founded the differences between S5PC110 type B (S8500) and type D (galaxy series). It's SIZE of memory in POP chip!!!!
Type B - have 2Gb mDDR memory, type D - 3Gb mDDR memory.
It's main differences in the CPU.

Thanks mylove90,you remember for me it's service manual)))

Does that help you figure out how to configure the kernel for that chipset? Did you manage to get the display operational in the end? if not ill do a bit of digging and see what the problem is

On block diagram,on the top left corner,
we see the Package-on-Package (PoP) of main processor.
it's have 2Gb mDDR, 4Gb oneNAND and 1Gb oneDRAM.
Total we have 128+256=384MB of RAM (Galaxy S have 512MB).

Didn't even samsung workers specified that Samsung Wave got 512MB instead of those 384? A guy explained that 1 part was for operating system's processes and the other one for custom applications...

So now you noticed in reality we got 384 instead of 512MB of RAM? What a pity...

We trust you oleg_k, we put all our hopes on you^^, you're the only one who can success on this^^!

Good going oleg
I will be glad to be of any help (although I love Bada more than Android). I have Wave and SGS and knowledge of both Linux and Windows.

I would rather suggest a dual-boot scenario from SD-card as we used to on old HTC WinMo device. It's generally safer and easier for masses.
Good luck !

oleg_k are you custom compiling that kernel your self, if so can you send me the config file?

EDIT: found it, working down through it to see if i can help/

EDIT 2: You may want to supplement the lack of RAM by defining a bit of swap mem by the way. not sure if you would be able to create a swap partition with the acces to the device you have.
