OK - I've flashed my phone to the European BADA version 1.2. All seems to be working fine. I used the "Elders guide to upgrading from Bada 1.0 to Bada 1.2" found here:
with the additional step of selecting the FOTA file under MultiLoader. I really appreciate Nokia now...
Basically the correct flashing to force upgrade to bada 1.2 (didn't know some countries were still left behind, shame on Samsung) is:
- flashing JID fw (a so called "full" fw)
- and then KA1 (a "lite")
Remember you have to reset the code for your country after the JID flash using *#5239870*# and then (“Pre-configuration”) *#27236*#... For example in Italy we select "ITV" for the de-branded versions. You can find the 'Samsung official letter codes' here:
(scroll down in the page)
1.2 has better email sync, and a lot of bug-fixes with some nice touch of class...
Hope now the development will be more funny!
I've read the latest SDK 2.x + emulator for the upcoming bada 2.0 rocks!
