Hi Yesterday i upgrading my Samsung wave s8500 firmware. while upgrading internet connection is Disconnect and now my phone only shows one picture on display whenever i tried to USE it... PICTURE i.e One...


Step I: Download the latest version of Samsung Kies from official site of Samsung Kies. The latest version of Kies is: Kies_2.0.0.11044.

OR

You can download it from here: Samsung Kies Download Link

Step II: Open Samsung Kies and connect your Samsung Wave with PC (Wait for driver installation, if you have attached your phone for the first time with your pc)

As soon as Kies will detect your phone it will offer a prompt of new firmware update available, see the screenshot below


Firmware upgrade prompt

Click on UPDATE button

Step III: Now you will face a window of 'Agree to the Terms and Conditions." You can choose the option of save and don't save the information. This option is that, Samsung will store your information of IP and hardware specifications on their servers for 2 years. It is totally dependent on you, which you want to choose.

We would like to recommended you to choose "Allow saving"


Upgrade Terms & Conditions

Hit START UPGRADE button

Step IV: It is strongly recommended not to disconnect your phone from PC until the upgrading process is complete. So take care of it.

Within few minutes (depends upon the speed of your internet connection). Upgrading process will move on and will complete successfully.


Upgrade in Progress

Note: Don't use any options on your phone, while the upgrading process is taking place, your phone will be restarted. DON'T PANIC!

Your phone will come to working state automatically and your Samsung Wave is successfully upgraded to Bada 1.2

Dear Sir/ Madam, why i cant play farm ville on my samsung wave 525. While going to play they are showing a message that you need to upgrade your flash player. Plz revert back asap Thanx, Milind.


Farmville requires Flash 10 and your phone does not support it.

You can try updating the firmware on your phone to see if it will work. To update your Wave 525:
  1. Make sure you have Samsung Kies installed.
  2. In the phone, Go to Settings > Connectivity > USB > and change it to "Samsung Kies"
  3. Plug in the USB and wait for Kies to detect your phone. Once it does...if there is an update you will see "Update Firmware" on the bottom. Click it.

Cannot update software/firmware


Samsung Tab needs Kies software to update to latest firmware.
Download Kies from here and install it. When finished, launched the Kies and it should tell you whether there's need for an update or not.

Hope this helps.

I'd like to install a version of Linux on my laptop. I am a beginner; what ill fit me and how to install it?


For a beginner the best version of Linux for a laptop remains UBUNTU. But you can count on LINUX MINT and the latest version of it is called JULIA.
You can find UBUNTU here. And LINUX MINT here.
The BOTH can be installed via installation DVD and for both also you can TRY BEFORE INSTALL, meaning you can run the version of LINUX LIVE, taste and test it before you will install it on your hard drive.

Battery on Samsung Wave does not last long even when the phone is not in use for a day, and does not last the day. Also can go down in a few secs. This happens even with internet off. Help!!!!


Hi there, this is a known issue with samsung wave, that's why samsung released an update that should prolong the battery power. So if you really turned off all the power-hungry apps and services (like internet, wifi and music player) then go for the update. It's a firmware update!

-Install Kies( can be downloaded from samsung.com) -Connect your mobile phone to your PC using the Samsung Mobile Cable -Run Kies, and it will guide you through the installation process

I dont know how to connect my Samsung wave 723 to my computer to transfer images and muic to it. How do I do it. Ive plugged the UBS cable in but the computer doesnt recognise it?


I have a samsung galaxy S and the phone doesnt come with a cd and neither does yours. What you need to do is go to:
http://mea.samsungmobile.com/ENG/support/softwaremanuals/softwareKiesUpdate.do?phone_model=GT-S7233 moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngmoz-screenshot-2.pngmoz-screenshot-3.pngmoz-screenshot-4.png
When the page loads up there should be a button saying "Download Kies" it should be under the bit that says how to upgrade. You need to click that button and download Kies. Kies is a program that all new samsung phones are using, once download has completed and you have installed kies it gives your computer the essential drivers it needs to recognise your phone. The website also explains how to connect your phone after the installation is complete.
Hope this helps
P.S dont worry about the upgrade part of the website as it is your choice to upgrade your phone it is just what the website is for.
