Android is a unique mobile OS, as it can be installed on various devices including phones, tablets, watches or even cars. It’s one of the most flexible operating systems and due to its open-source nature, it’s ported to even more devices. Most of OEMs decided to use it on the phones, but s particular Samsung created an own system called Bada, which was later replaced by Tizen. Neither of them became successful.
Bada lacked the ability to customize a single element of the ROM, it was also choppy and buggy. A group of developers including Rebellos, volk204, Oleg_K, mijoma, srg.mstr and many more decided to tackle Bada’s bootloader to make it work with Android. The attempt succeeded and on early 2012, Rebellos announced a project called BadaDroid. Ever since its release, BadaDroid sources were updated to run Android 4.x and 5.x Lollipop.
After four years of successes, users can now install the newest version of Android on their Waves. Android 6.0 is available in OmniROM flavor by XDA Senior Member fire855. It’s absolutely amazing to see another device never designed to work with Android reaching the point like this.
