Hi All.
It's my thread - port Android on Wave S8500(also S8530).
Wellcome developers and designers.

Last state of project:

06/13/2011 Now working on Android 2.3.3 (Source GB for GT-I9000 and M130K)

not working - modem and GPS.
04/04/2011 Memory allocation now is correct!

05/11/2011 I have full schematic for phone
and we're ready to get a fully working kernel.

Full decriptions of GPIO is attached.

source for kernel and initramfs here:

What does line 341 instruct of bootmem.c ? Could you post just this file or just the kernel source ?
Sorry not at my PC.

Sent from my GT-I9003 using XDA App

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.

I think we should all be donating to the oleg_k fund instead of Androbada or Android port! here we have proof he is actively working

Total we have 128+256=384MB of RAM (Galaxy S have 512MB).

This can NOT be correct. Also I9000 have more RAM...
Check this out:

Link is expired, but from I9000 I remember they posted true Type/name of 2x RAM Chips.

The K4X1G323B, KLM8G4DEDD and K4X2G323PB represnt the 1Gb DDR SDRAM, 8Gb Managed NAND and 2Gb DDR SDRAM respectively.

You can use Original Samsung PDFs and their Homepage to proof size.
Its Giga Byte, not Gigabit.

Yes, its true. S8500 and S8530 have less physically RAM as I9000.
BUT 512MB + 256 MB.

Please try to count...
apps_compressed.bin + Rsrc_S8500_Open_Europe_Common.rc1
= decompressed and hold in RAM more then 230 MB..... AMSS and more OS related stuff is loaded into RAM...

Then 200 MB is left... free RAM.

So over 430 MB RAM is possible to confirm with open eyes.

Oh, forgotten GPU used shared Memory I think. No extra Chip...

So less then 512 MB physically RAM is impossible.

Best Regards

It's true, S8500 have ONLY 384MB RAM memory.
check bootloader log....

<6>Memory: 80MB 256MB = 336MB total
<5>Memory: 198708KB available (7748K code, 1687K data, 4444K init)

on Galaxy S : 80MB 256MB 128MB=464MB total

The boot loader prob isn't seeing the full amount of memory at boot time, this isn't definitive proof.

Look at the original Galaxy S bootloader logs:

I bet S8500 got those 512MB, maybe in your botting you're only accesing the OS reserved partition of the RAM, that would explain why you got such a weird RAM memory quantity. I am sure It got 512MB partitioned in those 38x and 128. But anyway with time we will see.

About the display I offered my help as there's clear implementation of s3cfb_tl2796.c and s6e63m0.c files from M130K in the Wave bootloader (it looks like what's under CONFIG_M135K define, but there are some differences), but wasn't yet able to find enough time to do it.

Best Regards,
