Android Kitkat 4.4.4​

Let’s emphasize that-- THIS IS AN ALPHA, RELEASED FOR YOU TO PLAY WITH AND GET A SENSE OF WHAT’S TO COME. AND SOME THINGS DOESN’T WORK. REALLY. IF YOU ARE EXPECTING ANYTHING CLOSE TO PERFECTION, WALK AWAY FROM YOUR COMPUTER, LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR AN HOUR OR SO, THEN COME BACK. MORE EXCITING DISCLAIMERS/WARNINGS IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS CAN BE FOUND BELOW. READ THEM.



Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */

KNOWN BUGS (what doesn't work):

- Modem in 2G mode work incorrect(Network registration don't work with some SIM cards, permanent full signal straight, problem is with audio in calls)
With 3G all is OK, Use this: Settings -> More.. in "wireless&network" category -> Mobile Network -> Preferred Network type -> 3G only
- Conference Calls
- Some problems with audio codec settings, but generally it should
- After Recovery time to time incorrect capacity of battery
Maybe something else, what i forgot

SUPPORT
You get none. Zero. Zip. We obligate ourselves to providing nothing further. You are on your own and will have to help each other via this thread. This is provided “as-is”, and if you don’t like it, use Bada or other releases.
We basically lack time to give full dedication to this rom, and we’re looking for skilled devs who know the Android, and/or other things that might be relevant.

Please join us on IRC: some people are on #badadroid (freenode).

NOTE: DEVELOPERS WANTED. Please contact us if you are a developer with something to contribute.
I do heavily encourage to work together on the better, common project instead of making kang releases and demanding money for somebody else's work.
Read as: If you think you can make something better than this by doing less and muchazo Ctrl+C Ctrl+V - you suck, go figure the rest.

INSTALLATION


FIRST INSTALLATION

Bada 2.0 is required
Warning! It will remove Bada!

USB OTG for badadroid kernel KitKat rom :

https://github.com/Tigrouzen/android_kernel_samsung_wave


This example based on ICZen(ICS) KitKat's very different :

vold.fstab :

Code:
dev_mount usbdisk /mnt/usbdisk auto /devices/platform/s3c_otghcd/usb

init.wave.rc :

Code:
mkdir /mnt/usbdisk 0000 system system
symlink /mnt/usbdisk /usbdisk


storage_list.xml (device/samsung/wave/overlay/frameworks/base/core/res/res/xml/) :

Code:
    <storage android:mountPoint="/mnt/usbdisk"
             android:storageDescription="@string/storage_usb"
             android:primary="false"
             android:removable="true"
             android:allowMassStorage="true" />

As explained in OP,
-Flash bada 2.0
-Flash BF and Fota (SD fota)
-Put all files on SDcard
-Boot recovery, choose flash zip, go to /external-sd and choose the zip.
-this part is important : "- Wipe -> Advanced wipe -> Check "data" -> Repair or change File Sytem -> Change File System -> Ext4 -> Swipe to change ->Back -> Back ->Back -> Back "
-reboot, enjoy.

if you do this carefully step by step, it will work

If i try to go to download moad then it goes but again restarts.

If DL Mode not stable... then 2 reasons possible.

With luck only Battery empty.

So charge battery external... or use other battery...

If no luck...
Then Bootloader could be damaged or something else bad...

Best Regards

Battery probably empty, either boot any recovery and let it charge for a while, or plug phone and let charge on bada charge mode, or do it with some wires and a 5v power supply...
Then you should be able to go on DL mode.
