I just successfully upgraded my firmware from JF2 to JF3. It took about 1 hour 30 minutes to complete the whole process. Here are the detailed steps:
1. I followed the instruction from this site http://andhraboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15
Here is the instruction from the site:
Go to the program where you install Samsung KIES.
- Open the folder.
Expected location (where I installed): program files/samsung/Kies
Real location: program files/common files/Samsung/DeviceService
- Search those files: _rapi.dll and _ceutil.dll
- Copy both files and drop it on your dekstop.
- Now make from _rapi.dll = rapi.dll
- Now make from _ceutil.dll = ceutil.dll
- So what you did is, you removed '' _ ''
- Now take both files and drop it in the folder of KIES.
To save time drop the files into ALL the following destinations ( you can try one folder at a time if you like, to find out actual folder )
program files/samsung/Usb drivers
program files/common files/Samsung/DeviceService
2. I removed the memory card as well as the sim card of my wave.
3. I opened KIES and it automatically detected my wave after powering it on and connecting it to the USB port.
4. I upgraded the firmware by following the instructions in the firmware upgrade procedure with no other application is running in the PC.
5. Completed firmware upgrade after 1 hour 30 minutes.
I hope this will help to those planning to upgrade to their firmware.

Anonymous, 01 Aug 2010dude i didn't say i don't like my wave, i just expected more from the camera still images, yes... moreYes, I agree. Video recording is very good especially in HD, it doesn't drop frames. But still images are not satisfactory at this moment.
irvinehooi, 01 Aug 2010Still have some jealousy users put their negative comments to confuse people about WAVE. Those... moreMy friend, camera quality of Wave is not best. With very much honesty, I can say this. I though the one in Wave will have best camera module before purchasing. I was unaware of reviews and camera samples on this site so I couldn't compare. But now when I, almost all sony cybershot, nokia x6 and iphone 4 have better and balanced image processing and so the output than Wave. Compare honestly. Take images of bright objects. You will see dark part have too aggressive noise reduction and dark bright part suffers with noise and less saturation. All can be tuned fine by firmware updates. I hope they focus on this.
WAVEOMANIAC, 30 Jul 2010Hello All i am a very big fan of wave from india. And am planning to buy it and luckily i hav... morei have bought this unit wave, its really good, i have iphone 3gs, the pixel of this wave is much more good than iphone 3gs, the life of battery is also longer than iphone, the camera is very good, and the speed of the processor already 1 ghz, very fast no need to think or hang. for me its worth it.

Those... moredude i didn't say i don't like my wave, i just expected more from the camera still images, yes the hd recording is good but the still images are not good in low lights although they are of course awesome during the day. the OS is good as well.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2010The camera is far from being the best. :-) Too aggressive noise reduction. My Sony Ericsson C9... moreI am also not satisfied by camera but left with no option. Images are sometimes over saturated or sometimes too much noise during bright colour shots.
Still have some jealousy users put their negative comments to confuse people about WAVE. Those who did that is simply they can't afford to lose. Especially iPhone fans. WAVE forum has reached over 300 pages and it's the most active.
My advice to all WAVE owner is please read through the user manual carefully and try out yourselves 1 by 1 and you will found out how powerful WAVE can do for you before you comment anything that WAVE cannot do or fault. Don't simply borrow from your friend and play it, and then comment it here. You won't found out it advantages if you don't own a WAVE.
My feedback on WAVE:
WAVE produces the BEST image quality and it 720p video recording is simply superb. You can even take it to replace your home camcorder.
Battery lifer is also superb. It last me 4 to 5 days with minimal of usage. It last at least 2 days for extensive usage.
Features wise, WAVE can do almost everything that iPhone and BlackBerry can do. Further more WAVE can even do what they can't.
For Gaming wise, WAVE has unmatched 3D performance and can even replace Sony PSP.
My WAVE came with 8GB memory card. I upgraded it to 16GB class 6 memory card. It works like charm. For those who want to get a new memory card for WAVE please get it at least class 4 or above, since it is the minimum recommended by Samsung. The higher class you get the higher speed you have.
Although some minor BUG findings are unavoidable. But this can be FIXED through firmware update OR through Bada OS major update end of this year.
Enjoy your ultimate device on earth.
Thanks and Cheers.
just updated my kies to 1.5.1 10074.2 and now i cannot connect my wave to pc. Im using vista OS. samsung just cant handle there software. they are hardware expert but on software it belong to apple.sad
RAJIV, 31 Jul 2010Guys......my phone is not getting detected on the top left side of the kies screen.....however... moreHi Rajiv:
I've owned Wave for >1 month now. But everytime I connect to Kies, it seems to be a hit-or-miss event. If it doesn't connect, I simply try half an hour later.I won't do anything to fix the situation,but it will miraculously connect. Sometimes I have to connect a few times to get a successful connection. I'm on JG2. Hope that helps.
need for speed: shift available on wave for free size-98 mb. awesome graphics almost like ps2
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2010why would i lie ?, the camera is crap and so is the battery, here's mine if you don't want to ... moreCamera is superb with an amazingly bright flash, I work in graphics, so I'm handling images all the time, so I'm not just making some bullxxxx comment. Battery life is is great, my phone will easily go two days with heavy usage, just remember to switch off wifi when not in use.
