Almost a year ago Bada 2.0 beta was released. Samsung never really released an installer so, instead the user has to manually flash the firmware on to their phone. Flashing is a very risky procedure and the slightest mistake could ruin your phone AND void your warranty. I nearly lost my own phone when I flashed it so, I am writing this article to help others flash their phones correctly.
First of all, not all waves can be flashed due to memory problems so if you have any of the earlier models chances are you can’t flash your phone.
What you will need:
- Multiloader v5.62 or v5.65 (these versions worked for me)
- The respective firmware edition for your phone, available at www.sammobile.com
- A Samsung Wave phone
First dial the following code:
Make sure that Sim Lock and Network Lock are OFF, if they are ON then you can NOT flash your phone
Next, make sure that your phone is charged, the flashing process will drain about 20% of the battery and if the power runs low when flashing you might brick your device
If both Sim and Network Lock are OFF and your phone is charged, then you are ready to begin!
- Backup all the stuff on your memory card before you begin
- Turn your phone OFF and remove the MicroSD and SIM cards
- Connect your phone to your computer
- While the phone is OFF, press Volume down,Lock key and Camera key at the same time until an icon appears on your phone
- Launch Multiloader
- Make sure that Boot Change and Full Download are checked
- Make sure that BRCM2153 is selected
- Choose all the files that are in the firmware
9. Click on Port search
10.Click on Download
12. The transfer should be complete, you should get a message telling you that the transfer is complete
NOTE: If the transfer gives you an error, then DO NOT worry, just restart your computer as long as you DO NOT use your phone in between you should be fine
I am NOT responsible for any damage done, Flash YOUR phone at YOUR own risk
DO NOT operate your phone during the process, do not even touch the screen!
