Long time ago I've played with Tool from BenQ Poland... HWTP.
I can remember it shows some GPIOs... but it seems S8500 can not work...
Maybe few changes needed...

QXDM could be alternate Tool, you could log something...

But its Qualcomm part, so you have to be in Qualcomm Mode.

I'll search more infos... and poster later more.

Best Regards

If the LCD-Screen does not work, have u tried it on a TV-screen via component on output jack ? Maybe this works for any reason.. ?

One thing i don't understand. Galaxy S and Wave have same hardware/same conpany/Super AMOLED..so i don't see a problem in porting androd to wave. Can't you just go and flash one of the samsung galaxy's bootloader and ROM? i'm not a dev so it's just a question i would like an answer to.

Also, what's the future of this phone, i'm planning on buying it today. Would it be possible to dual boot android? so that you can get rid of android whenever you want?

Sadly there's no easy way to flash it into Android and get it workng fine right now, we hope there is soon. However, It is a very good phone, taking in account that the price is VERY low for it's capabilities I think is one of the bests choices so far right now (between the mobile phones that doesn't requires for force paying 3G).

It was 20€ for me, and I must say is one of the best choices I have ever made

hi everyone,
I just love the project and I wanna support but I'm not a progammer...
I hope you will have the first REAL(androbada) wave running android, but I have 2 questions..
1.How long will it take to make the first version? (estimated; days,weeks,moths?)
2.Is the lcd bug the only bug left?

Kind regards,
Yari

Those kind of words of support doesn't do poetic justice as the problems are big problems and by the sound of your posting its like you're pushing....

Have patience, sit back and watch the progress.... one step at a time ...

Expect not too much. As only first steps are made.

It could take much, much more time. So I think weeks... ""stable"" maybe in months...
This is an heavy project.

Then, having the same SoC of Galaxy S, does not mean that the entire hardware/firmware mechanism is identical to Galaxy S. NAND,GPIO pins, drivers (particaully the fact, they will have to dump the firmware from the Bada drivers since they are not linux driver), etc. are still different

Third, this work seems to be at initial steps. It's impossible to estimate the time since they could find a showstopper that it requires many try-and-seek attemps to be solved. Or it could also receive a cease-and-desist from Samsung...nobody knows...

It's still better to have an Android handset that making developer/hackers pressure for this.

I understand what you mean but has anyone tried to flash a galaxy s ROM onto wave? just wondering lol :P

Sorry hardware is NOT the same on both handsets... check your facts first before firing off.. wave has flash on the camera, Galaxy S does not have flash, hardware buttons different, different chipset used for the wifi networking, bluetooth as well... oh and btw nand chipsets are different also

Oh and also, Froyo has theme-ing capability... but yeah, let's forget about androbada simple really...
