    PLEASE NOTE:This is not a stable version. It has several bugs including:-Adding new widgets to home screen(Crashes the Os)-Im doesn't work(All accounts)-New Google App doesn't work- Facebook App doesn't work-Except contancts you cannot sync any other data with kies.-When u try to switch off the handset the os crashes(Imp. Bug to be fixed by Samsung)…..and perhaps dozens more.

    ok i installed BADA 2.0.1…..and there are a lot of bugs in this1. the IM doesnt work2. Cannot sync Facebook contacts 3. Cannot sync contacts using Kies4. Cannot sign in into Samsung account5. Facebook app doesnt work6. The voice command is buggy7. phone freezes when i try to open a mesg directly from the locked screen…8. New widgets cannot be installed9. Kies cannot install any apps on the phone10. the tilt zoom feature that the BADA 2.0 was to have is not functional in this version….other than all the above the looks of this new firmware are amazing…..one thing that i absolutely loved was the fact that now when applying a wallpaper or ringtone from ur memory card it doeesnt copy the image or sound file to the phone memory….it uses it directly from the memory card….so no memory is wasted…it has the looks of an Android OS but still its way better than it….and looks more powerful….cant wait for the complete version to come out….

    USING BOTH S8500 AND S8530 WITH SAME COMPI HAVE BOTH SAMSUNG WAVES IN MY FAMILY(S8500 AND S8530)PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN I CONNECT ONE OF THEM AND DOWNLOAD A CONTAINER APP THEN IT DOESNT ALLOW ME TO USE THAT APP FOR THE OTHER DEVICE.. NOR DOES IT ALLOW ME TO DOWNLOAD IT AGAIN FOR THE DIFFERENT DEVICE.. AS A RESULT I CANT PUT THE SAME ORIGINAL APPS IN BOTHE PHONES..PLEASE HELP

  • Freddie

    Of course. Samsung apps has associated the application that you have download with one wave with the imei of that phone, so it is not to allow download it again with another one with different imei neither install in it too.

    @anurag-thanks a lot man the crashes have reduced now and it actually fixed a few things too….now my IM is working and iv been able to Sync my FB contacts….but no luck with the games and apps….:(And as for themes….the old ones are useless now because there is a lot of changes involved in BADA 2.0 and so now v have to wait for an update to theme designer to make themes for BADA 2.0…..so no themes till september i guess….
