Has the development been closed?? Will there be no android for us?? The wave 2 got it :(

Sorry.
I have very limited skills. :eek:
And no support to add/port Touchscreen driver...

If someone else help to add Touchscreendriver.
Then I/we could test on my/our device...

Touchscreen driver is only 1 part of puzzle...
As more things not complete ported... exactly no 1 Byte own Code is inside...

I have only mixed few available Firmware parts to start I9001 Android on S8600...
And it is only limited functional with ADB only... or in CWM recovery with 2 keys...

Sorry, my brain is not big enough. To do all necessary porting things alone.
To proceed with this project. Kernel Developer is welcome (mandatory).


Best Regards

@adfree : are you still working on this project ! :-| ..if not android, would you be thinking of porting Tizen in Wave 3.`
Adfree is not a goddamn developer.
It's just a guy (with heaps of time and patience) that with a lot of try and guesses managed to "copy-paste" rom from similar phones.
But he does not know coding
But unless you have somebody able to make kernels, we are on a dead end

:eek:
Yes, exactly.

To proceed "we" need Kernel Coder...

But for now I am pretty sure... bada time is over... :eek:
bada Hardware is tooo old and slow... limited RAM etc...

So I've lost race against time... :(

Tizen is s h i...
It is "new", but only Z130 as device available...
And Z130 have same problems... NOT enough RAM...

And Tizen has nearly empty Store... for Z130...
This is NOT like in Apple or Android World... :(

If you need fast(er) solution.
Buy handset with working OS... and if you need Apps choose wisely...
Otherwise Store is empty or full of... ;)

Example... I have my Z130 since few weeks...
In this time I have found only 3 Games... worth to play... :( :rolleyes:

Few other Games I have allready played in bada or Android world...
But in main Tizen Store is empty...

So why somebody with brain + time + Porting skills should waste his time with Tizen Port to S8600...
:confused:
:confused:

@adfree ...thanks for the reply. I do have a working android phone. I love my wave 3 ( minus the bada OS) so was hoping someday I could use it as my daily driver. Calling and whatsapp is all that i was looking for.

Guess BADA time was over a long time back ;) and it will not make sense to invest time/energy to port a wave 3. wish I had the skills to do it :-|
@MiHrl : by the way, I was not looking for your advise and will ask for it if I need it.

    Hi all.
    This thread only for developers! Only! No questions - when?!!!!!!!

    This is my attempt to porting android on S8600.
    I wrote custom bootloader - emmcboot, based on codeaurora LK-bootloader.
    Bootloader is successfully start, work and trying to load android kernel from internal
    microsd card.
    Now is unsuccessfully,after type message "Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel." device rebooted or stopped.

    Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.

    source code for lk-bootloader for S8600:
    https://github.com/Oleg-k/LK_BOOT_S8600
    To build for S8600, type: "make -j4 s8600 EMMC_BOOT=1"

    Also, i got memory dump, stage - after load oemsbl and before loading my bootloader.
    as we see, oemsbl decompress and load apps_compressed.bin into memory,
    starting at 0x200000.
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/5wf6dp5gfgudkdc/MEM_DUMP_128MB.rar

    And for for understanding boot process on MSM7x30, read this:
    http://tjworld.net/wiki/Android/HTC/Vision/BootProcess#BootProcess

    YES! YES! YES!

    WE HAVE KERNEL!
